Now that the house is torn down and the debris hauled way, we are forming the footings to be filled with concrete. This can be a tenacious job, digging the holes by hand, and installing the rebar just right.
Here you get a glimpse of the knockouts we placed in the footings to be able to bring in the water and sewer line since this is a crawlspace.
Here is a picture of the massive amount of steel wall panels that we had to fill up with concrete to create the foundation of the home.
This picture shows you what the concrete foundation looks like once the steel forms are removed. The concrete is now curing and will reach its maximum strength in approximately 28 days. By code, we must wait a minimum of 7 days before putting dirt against the foundation.
Here you can see the foundation crew shooting gravel into
the basement to prep for the basement floor pour. We have all the plumbing
prepped and ready to go as well!
Here we have an old brick house that needed to be torn down because it was past it’s prime and the Owner’s were looking for a more updated home to enjoy their waterfront property. We are tearing it down and starting a whole new house with lots of natural light and a huge patio out back for the best crab fests!
This is a rendition of the new home we will be building on the waterfront! This new home will have a Master bedroom on the 1st floor with the entire second floor having all 3 bedrooms and baths. An outdoor see thru fireplace will sit on the patio to enjoy while looking out over the water.
This lot did not require a lot of clearing, however it did have a lot of stormwater management requirements to properly drain. Here you can see the placement of a huge concrete pipe that will be buried by the swell we are required to build that will let water pass thru underground.
Here you can see that we are forming the footings to be filled with concrete. This is a tenacious job where every measurement counts.
Looking down from the
2nd floor hallway you can see how the handmade marble medallion in
the Foyer is truly beautiful in every detail.
The heart of the home, the Kitchen, boasts a huge Thermador refrigerator and freezer, as well as a custom range hood over a Viking gas six-burner range top. The fun glass Pantry door adds a nice touch on this family home.
This Saltwater pool overlooking the Potomac River is finally ready for water! This pool was designed with a zero overhang and a rounded edge giving the pool an infinity edge look. The Wet Edge interior coloring was chosen to mimic the Potomac water.
have the pool completely filled with water and looking quite refreshing.
The upper deck has a nice white pergola to lounge under.
Here we have an old contemporary looking house that needed
to be torn down because it had sustained a lot of damage. It was not worth saving.
We are preparing to tear it down and start a whole new house.
The old house is down and the new house begins!
We have been designing a new house that will include a large pool that is 60 feet long. There will be a large deck around the pool and the view will be amazing.
