Work has moved along well on the addition to a Prairie home that we are building. The workers completed the insulating work as well as the interior drywall hanging. The drywall tapers are finishing up their work, to be followed by prime painting.
The interior ceiling of the upper room has a lowered area around the perimeter. This allows us to install recessed light fixtures without having to penetrate the insulated ceiling plane. It also lines up with the exterior soffits creating a very pleasing relationship between interior and exterior surfaces. The architect used sloped surfaces for the interior soffit which looks very nice.
While interior work is being done our carpenters have moved outside to the deck. The deck is constructed using red cedar. The support beams underneath the deck have some decorative features. We will cap the top of the beam ends with metal flashings.
