Belvedere Update 31

Belvedere keeps moving forward! Site work continues and little by little the piles of material are getting smaller. The third bay of the garage is ready for stucco and the adjacent retaining wall is done. Final colored coat of stucco is on and looks great. The screen porch is stuccoed as well and the screen frames and wood paneling will finish off that side of the house. The wrought iron railings on the adjacent deck are in and now...

6109 Residence

Framing is done! This is a great space, we've been referring to it as the "cathedral" and we can't wait to see it with drywall. Even from the exterior it is an imposing structure. Siding and trim. This is really the only spot from the front of the house where you can tell anything has been added. Cedar siding looks so great when it is first installed. Great little project and we're excited to see it...

Belvedere Update 25

This is a long post, so get ready because there are some cool things in it starting with this first pic. There have been delays due to site work and details but the bridges are finally on site. The steep site requires a unique installation path. To get the bridges to the downhill side of the house they were lifted over the entire house and lowered carefully into place. They actually approached the limits of this crane not due...

324 Residence

This project has been going for a while but for some reason we haven't gotten around to a post about it. In the next week or so I'll get you caught up to whats going on now. Here we go! This is the house. Typical of the style of a lot of houses in the Waldo and Brookside area with steep roof pitches and multiple intersecting planes and brick and stucco. The house, like many built around that time...

2019 Residence 2

Siding and trim are up. Looking pretty great. The addition certainly defines the entry and adds a focal point to the house. The trim panel stands out nicely already but once painted the accent color it is going to really pop.  None of the siding has been painted yet so you can really see the difference between the siding and the metal corners. These metal pieces finish off the corners and replace the historic battons  This leads to...

5209 Residence 2

A quick update on the 5209 residence. All of the masonry work is complete and as you can see below they've got a pretty good start on the new entry piece. The grade at the back of the wall will be lifted quite a bit more and then feathered out to the middle of the yard. There is some backfill to do still around the drive but for the most part it is done! Another view of the new...

Belvedere Excavation

08 November 2010 Excavation continues at Lake Quivira: A great deal of work has been done already as you can see from the photos below and its possible now to get a feeling for where each level of the house will eventually sit. Having removed the loose rock and soil, the work now consists of breaking free and dragging out car-sized boulders. Not an easy task but it continues to move along on schedule....
