2019 Residence 3

Time for another up update! Paint is done and looks fantastic. This project is very close to complete. The sidewalk has been laid out on site and should be going in very soon and then we can get the front yard put back together. In addition the other drive will be demolished and the sidewalk replaced. This isn't a great photo but is a very clear description of what was added on the first floor. You can clearly see...

Belvedere Update 20

Another site visit our at Belvedere. Blue tarps are gone from the front entry but all of the beautiful cast stone is now covered in pink foam to protect it for the rest of construction. Progress continues on the exterior stone and cast stone and upper terrace.  The bevel is also cut on the perimeter cast stone. The waterproofing and tile is installed in the screen porch. Any water that goes through the screens will drain out behind a trim piece and...

1232 Residence Update 8

Quick update. The paint in the screen porch is pretty much done. The exterior paint has been started but can't be completed until we get a few warm days. The slate roof is coming along great and is pretty much identical to the existing slate. Electrical, plumbing and HVAC are ready for inspection and then its onto interior finish. Progress! ...

1232 Residence Update 7

A site visit and some new pictures to share! The slate roof installers are organized and starting work. Using a list developed from the computer program they gather the correct sizes and colors and using the motorized trolley, stage them on the roof. It is slow going on the first couple courses because of the exposed rafter tails. To avoid punching through the tongue and groove decking, slots are cut in the tiles and copper straps are used to reach...

1232 Residence Update 4

Just a quick update today, if you want to see more you can check out the Facebook Gallery here.  Below is a before and after shot of the East side of the addition. You can see the metal mesh is in and the metal corners at the pilaster. All the doors and windows are in and trimmed out on the exterior. As of yesterday it seems like fall has started so we are now in a race with the elements...

1232 Residence Update 2

This project is moving along so quickly we're going to take a little jump up to present day and try to keep up. Exterior framing is getting really close to being wrapped up. We've got a couple more posts to set and then all the sills and screen frame. The chimney and the fireplaces should be framed by the time most people see this. This is the one of the really fun parts of construction. In the course of a...

Belvedere Update 10

A lovely day for a site visit yesterday, Mike and Rick went out to look at a few things and check up on the progress as the framers finish up. Here is a slightly different view of the house, to the left of the garages there will be a third smaller bay added. This has been left out for now to allow access to the rest of the site. This bay will help to balance out the master suite that extends...

Belvedere Update 8

Let's start with a view from the new driveway location. The roof sheathing is just about complete so you really can get a feel for the shape of the house now. We used a 4:12 slope on almost every roof to keep the height from going over the Lake Quivira height restrictions but also to give the house a more horizontal feel even with the towers at the drive and lake side. This also means that during site visits when...

Handrail Fitting

Last-Minute Fitting We just posted some images of this project, but we were out there for the test fitting and adjustment of the guard rail and hand rail and we're excited about how great it looks. It will be powder-coated to match the brackets so any adjustments, drilling or welding have to be done now. It is like a dress fitting for a building the week before the big event. That's Brian of Hurst Construction up there adjusting the upper end of the...
