West Side Addition and Remodel

West Side Addition and Remodel

This morning we started excavation work for another project on Northfield's West side. This project involves adding a small 6'x20' addition to the rear of the home. While this is a small addition, it will accomplish a lot for the homeowners. We will construct a new full bathroom and laundry room. They will also gain a nice, clean bas...

Like many of the early 1900's houses in Northfield, the trims consist of a simple flat casing. But there is a small head trim used as well as ...

We completed the foundation for our West side expansion project. The existing foundation for this home is constructed from cast in place concrete. I like to keep foundation types the same whenever possible, so we used 8" concrete walls for the new foundation. We did find one surprise....when we excavated for the foundation we discov...

Our carpenters have set the floor system in place on this family room expansion project in Elko New Market. We used floor trusses on this floor like we do on many of our projects.

West Side Garage

West Side Garage

We are starting work on a new garage for a West side client. The existing garage on their property was a very old small stucco garage. It was somewhat unique in that it didn't have a concrete floor either...just dirt. It really wasn't much of a structure and needed replacement. This garage shares a driveway easement with the neighbor...
