Better weather has arrived, and it’s allowing us to make great progress with all of the 13 projects we have underway, including this custom West Coast home that we’re building on the North Shore. With framing largely concluded, we can now begin visualizing the finished space—and enjoying the spectacular lake view this home will offer the owners when complete.
Some of the progress we’ve made to date with this home includes backfilling the foundation, construction of natural rock retaining walls, and finishing the driveway grade in preparation for concrete. The waterproof roofing membrane has been installed, and metal roofing plus snow stops are now scheduled. Windows and exterior doors are also on site and currently being installed.
In the basement, the lower floor underground plumbing, radon rock, vapour barrier, R14 slab insulation, radiant heat piping (see photos) have all been installed, and concrete has now been poured.
Our clients have been extremely diligent choosing finishes, which helps immensely in terms of keeping the project on track. Outside, garage doors have been ordered and are scheduled for install after the drywall has been installed in the garage. Siding material is on order, as is vinyl decking and masonry materials. Inside, the fireplace has been confirmed and ordered. So too have plumbing fixtures, with plumbing installation beginning next week. Light fixtures, cabinets, appliances and finishing trims have all been chosen and ordered as well.
Occupancy for this stunning home is scheduled for October, and given the combined team effort from the clients, our staff and our sub-trades, we anticipate having no problem meeting the deadline.
