Better weather means a drier, cleaner building site, and that’s allowing us to make great progress with a unique project we’re now bringing to a close in Eagle Bay.
The project, which we started last fall, involves renovating and adding significant new living space to existing summer lakefront home that was no longer meeting our clients’ needs. In addition to modernizing the existing structure, we’ve added 2,400 square feet of living space through new construction.
In the original section of the home, mechanical upgrades, drywall repairs, and window and door replacements are now complete. Meanwhile, painting in the new section of the home is nearing completion. Finishing materials (stairs, trims and beams) and interior doors are now onsite awaiting installation. Flooring tile is underway, while cabinets are scheduled for install on April 24.
Outside, aluminum soffits for the majority of the home are complete, while stained cedar engineered soffits for the lakeside of the home have been ordered and will be installed upon delivery. Duradek install is complete, and a number of unique exterior finishing touches are underway, including custom deck posts with tapered smart trim, and custom checker plate aluminum deck stairs.
Septic system installation is also underway, and one complete, work will begin on landscaping and Allan Block retaining walls. The challenging integration from the existing access road to a new driveway with adequate turnaround space is also in progress.
We’re happy to report that we’re on schedule for end-of-May delivery. What’s made this project such a pleasure to work on is the complete, hands-on involvement of our clients, who are relocating from Kelowna clients. Our thanks to them for allowing to build their Shuswap dream.
