Here you can see our
project masons begin to stone the exterior of the home.
They have their scaffolding in place to not only make the job safer but
easier to access the high areas of the front of the home.
Once the stone is on,
our masons will then mortar everything into place.
We chose to go with a black mortar to make the stonework really pop!
On the exterior of the
home, we have 2 fireplaces sitting on the outside decks.
The 1st floor level fireplace is sitting on top of the basement
Both fireplaces are direct vent gas units.
Here you can see that we have finished the stone on both outdoor fireplaces.
While we work inside the home, the Exterior is becoming a work of art. As you can see, the Exterior EIFS feature around the front door is really taking shape. We have chosen a bold Black color to really make the house pop!
Inside the house our drywall crew is working their magic on the ceilings of the home. The Living Room has a Coffered ceiling that is sure to be a showstopper once it is trimmed out and the Dining Room’s Diamond ceiling design will have an exquisite chandelier!
Here you have a view of the house from the street. The 1st floor deck and walls have been built and now we are working on building the 2nd floor walls. This house has 10ft walls on the 1st floor with 9ft walls on the 2nd floor.
Here you have the view of the house from the water. You can see where the Pella Sliding Patio Doors with 4 panels will be placed along the back of the house for awesome views of the water.
You can see that the forms are now filled with concrete. The rebar sticking thru the concrete footings is used to help strengthen the concrete and support the foundation walls that are coming.
The crawlspace foundation walls have been poured and we chose to go with a brick pattern around the foundation to jazz things up a bit. The various knockouts you see in the walls are actually flood vents that can relieve the hydrostatic pressure and prevent flood damage to our foundation.
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.
