6109 Residence Update 5

It is done! Ok from this view it doesn't look any different from the last time other than the grass but keep scrolling!  The final coat of paint is on and the light fixtures installed. The aluminum and glass overhead doors are installed and hooked up. We went with a jackshaft operator in order to keep the space as open as possible and it also reduces the noise significantly. They were able to get a great finish on the...

C2 Residence Update 2

Here we are over at C2 again already! Things are moving fast as we sit less than a week away from christmas as I'm writing this. Paint color was selected and paint and trim are up with the exception of the flat stock around the windows. The house is filled with activity with the painters, Karl the cabinet guy, the audio video guys installing and programming the audio and install the brakets and cables for the tv. Oh yeah, Dustin...

Belvedere Update 32

Progress, progress, progress! Grading and plantings and lower retaining walls are coming together as we get closer to the finish line. The outdoor spaces are going to be incredible on this project. This house is all about views of the lake and the many outdoor spaces let them enjoy them from those views from throughout the site. More outdoor spaces below. The outdoor kitchen and the courtyard outside the dining room complete the outdoor part of the project. We'll post more pictures when...

Deck + _ 2

Things are moving quickly on this project. The main roof and skylights are up and it is looking amazing. Adding a screen or covered porch can cut off a lot of natural light from your living space. We always suggest strongly that at least one skylight is added to restore that natural light. This particular client agreed and we ended up with some large skylights that still allow a view of the sky from the living room windows. ...

Belvedere Update 19

A hot day out at Belvedere for a site visit but things on the interior and the exterior continue to move along despite the weather. Here is a view of the front of the house, the masons have made a little tarp fort for themselves as the sun just beats down on the front of the house. This is what is happening behind the tarps. The cast stone has arrived and is going up at the columns on the front porch....

6135 Studio

This project in theBrookside area involved replacing a worn out detached 2 car garage with a new 2 car garage along side an art studio. The parameters of the design for the studio/garage were the clients request to have everything on one level, the context of the neighborhood and the confines of the rear yard of the lot. The new driveway and sidewalk help define the planting bed that will bring some ‘green’ back into the back yard.  ...

Out to Bid!

We've wrapped up construction documents on this light-filled, two-story kitchen addition. Located on large lot in Prairie Village, KS the house had a small kitchen that was badly in need of an update. We extended the upper floor to create an open two-story space above the new kitchen and opened up the two adjacent rooms with 2 large new windows and a 12' sliding patio door. A dark kitchen tucked into the interior of the house will be transformed into...

Bird House Studio Update 2

We took an office field trip over lunch to check on the progress on the bird house studio. Its being painted now and looks really great even in the dreary cloudy weather. Its going to be a lovely and light-filled space. Even better, Gerry(our wonderful client) has been doing some baking and shared a few cookies and some delicious apple pie. She said the painters especially liked this batch of cookies. The birdhouse studio proves once again that well-fed contractors do...
