If you only knew what goes on below the floor or behind the drywall; it’s a whole other world! Check out the pictures below for a backstage pass into what makes our job exciting.

Framing
We were able to reuse some of the existing subfloor of the home. In the pics below we removed the bottom 2 feet of the exterior wall. The wall and roof were supported while we added new blocking below the floor, then we built up the new exterior walls.

Stacked Blocking
What I like about this pic is how the subcontractors prepped blocking for future use by adding nails and stacking them neatly. There’s a lot of forethought, even in the little things, that keep our projects moving efficiently.

Clean
This is during installation of wiring and can lights. A clean working environment is a safe working environment.

We take pride in how tidy the project is throughout all stages!

Staining Siding
Before we install any siding, we stain and finish it on all 4 sides. This extra step prevents ANY unfinished wood from showing should any shrinking occur down the road. It also ensures the longest life possible for our client’s investment.

Exterior Brick and Stone
When incorporating so many exterior finishes it is important for us to do a mock-up of the materials as a preview (below left). This gives the client a chance to see how the materials look and how they’ll work together before committing to the complete application.

Interior/Exterior Wood
Gary Nance had the vision in his initial drawings that the exterior and interior wooden walls should line up to look like one continuous wall. We carefully planned the placement and finish of the boards to seamlessly transition the Grade A Cedar from the outside to the inside.

Bookcases
Our clients wanted custom floating bookshelves. We mocked them up on the walls first with blue painter’s tape and adjusted the tape until the clients’ vision for placement was achieved. These floating bookcases are 1.5 inches thick with no visible supports or screws, but they are built STRONG.
