Week One Construction

We started off strong this week with tree and shrub removal by Marquis Tree Service. There is already a vast improvement on curb appeal. Interior demolition began to remove superfluous closets which widened up the Hallway, providing a great view from the foyer straight to the back of the house. In the Kitchen, the cabinets, island and flyover were removed. Doorways were widened to improve flows from room to room. The old deck walls were removed allowing more light to stream in from the back deck. Up in the Master Suite, walls are coming down and realigned to open up the awkwardly broken up space. The outdated bathroom was gutted to make way for the new spa inspired floor plan, which will include a luxurious soaking tub as well as a 12' Wetroom along the back wall. 

Week Two Construction

We are still going strong on the curb appeal. The new Bluestone walkway is almost complete and will feature a 13 foot circular transitional area of Oxford Gray Millstone pavers. The old flagpole was replaced with a mature Japanese Maple tree which was transplanted from the side yard. Restoration has also begun on the exterior trimwork and soon we will be ready to paint the exterior. Inside, the Family Room subfloor is being raised to remove the awkward dropdown from the Kitchen to the Family Room. This is great because not only does it further open up the floor plan but also makes it safer for families with littles to reduce the likelihood of tripping/stumbling off the edge. And up in the Attic, framework is in place for the new skylights. When that room is finished, it is going to be amazing!

Week Three Construction

Outside, the new Bluestone walkway is complete and planting has begun. Graceful curves invite you down the new walkway to the front entry. A row of plantings at the circular Millstone transition make a great place for a conversation bench.

Inside, the Butler's Pantry is ready to get it's new backsplash and countertops. The Laundry Room has been relocated to the second floor next to the Master Suite, which is more in tune with today's living. Once completed, the laundry room will feature gorgeous cabinetry, a convenient folding station, sink and tile floor. In the Master Suite, we have created a new opening to the Master Bath which will feature double pocket doors revealing a his and her Wetroom. The Wetroom will be 12’ wide with double rain shower heads and a full slab marble accent wall. The Master Bath will also have radiant heat installed under the flooring. Last but not least, the Attic skylights are in and look just as amazing as we knew they would.

Week Six Construction

An intricate part of any build is the mechanical systems. Although without the aesthetics of our usual photographs, they still show the great care we are taking in reimagining this home. The photo of the rough plumbing in the new second floor Laundry Room is a great example. In the Attic, the brand new, multi-zoned HVAC system is ready for the warm Summer days to come. You can also see a photo of the high efficiency Navien tankless water heater which is exclusively for the use of the spa inspired Master Bath. The instant hot water on demand is necessary for its 12' Wetroom which you can see is taking shape. You can already see what a dramatic focal point it will be. In addition to the plumbing and HVAC improvements inside, we have also been upgrading our electrical system with high efficiency LED recessed lighting throughout. 

Outside, work on the landscaping continues. New foundation plantings and a new Japanese Maple Tree have added color and interest to the once stark facade. The front lawn has been regraded and is ready for seed. In the backyard, the old overgrown plantings along the stone walls have been removed and once again the graceful curves of the walls can be seen. The old back deck has been stripped down and is ready to start taking its new shape. 

 

As the weather continues to improve, so will the exterior views. Stay tuned for more changes to come!

Week Seven Construction

Exciting things happening this week! Outside, the front yard has been hydroseeded and the Japanese Maples' leaves are unfurling which makes a beautiful pop of color. You can already see how welcoming the front of the house has become.

Inside, things are coming along beautifully. We have progressed through all our electrical, plumbing and HVAC system inspections. The new hardwood flooring has been delivered. Once it has acclimated to it's new environment, the installation of the new floors will begin. Also on the plans for this week is blueboard installation and plastering, so soon you will see each room really start to take shape.

Check back with us next week for more updates.

Week Eight Construction

We have begun the blueboard installation and you can start to see the rooms come to life. The angles of the Attic bonus room are bathed in light from the skylights. In the Master Bath, the Wetroom is ready for its tilework. The new hardwood flooring in the Family Room has been installed, raising the once sunken room to new heights. You can also see the framework of the new coffered ceilings which will also be featured in the Family Room. 

This week we will continue our interior progress with plastering and millwork installation. The Kitchen cabinets are on their way and should be received by next week. 

Be sure to check in with us next week to see our progress!

Weeks Nine & Ten Construction

We have been really busy the last two weeks. Outside you can see the landscaping is coming along beautifully. Soon the entire yard will be lush and green, serving as a perfect backdrop to this beautiful home.

 

Inside the plastering and millwork installation is officially underway. Once the plastering is completed, we will begin the flooring installation. In the Family Room, the coffered ceiling insets have been plastered and the openings for the recessed lighting can be seen. When finished, this room will be spacious and filled with light. Upstairs in the Master Bath Wetroom, you can see the His and Hers inset storage cubbies and plumbing for the decadent ceiling mounted rain shower heads. 

Next week, the plastering will be completed and our focus will be flooring and prepping the Kitchen for cabinets. More to come!

Week Eleven Construction

With all the beautiful weather, the lawn is now green and glorious. And inside, things are looking just as lovely.

 

Plastering has been completed and we have moved on to the flooring. We chose a rich, custom-mixed Jacobean finish which adds warmth and style. The natural light plays beautifully across the floors, perfectly highlighting the natural grain of the oak. In the Music Room, Dining Room and Sunroom, you can see the slim-line Mahogany inlay in the floor which runs along around the perimeter of those rooms. This is one of many unique touches in this home. It looks especially amazing in the octagonal Sunroom, because its lines mirror the shape of the domed ceiling.

For next week, our focus will be Kitchen and Bathroom cabinets, interior doors and trim. So exciting to be approaching the finish line!

Weeks Twelve & Thirteen Construction

As the Summer goes on, this house just gets better and better!

 

Exterior painting has been completed, pairing crisp white trim and cool gray siding with the brick facade. Next week, we will see the install of the handcrafted garage doors.

Inside on the first floor, you can see the millwork is coming along beautifully. You can see the beginnings of the picture frame wainscoting taking shape in the newly widened Hallway. In the Family Room, the coffered ceilings are almost completed, and they look fantastic! The Kitchen cabinets have been installed and next week the granite countertops come in. If you look, you can see the open doorway which leads to the Pantry that will be hidden behind matching cabinet doors.

Upstairs, the Laundry Room cabinets are installed and waiting for the countertops and laundry sink. The Master Bath is currently being tiled and we are obsessed with how it is coming out! The way the light plays off the tiles is so stunning. 

The next couple weeks will bring the new garage doors, the new Family Room french doors and the Master Suite closet cabinetry. Stay tuned!

Weeks Fourteen & Fifteen Construction

It's amazing how much new doors can change the look of a home! We can't decide which we like better - the new patio doors in the Family Room or the new handcrafted garage doors. Both make a huge difference not only in looks but also in heating/cooling efficiencies. 

If you think those are great, check out the granite countertops we chose for the Kitchen, Master Bath and Laundry Room. In the hidden Pantry, you'll have cabinets and countertop galore to keep the chaos out of your kitchen and put the "function" back into your family functions. It will be so beautiful that you may want to hide in there on a regular basis!

The Master Suite is really the showstopper this week though. With the addition of the vanities, countertops and floor tile in the Master Bath, you can really see how dramatic this room will be. The walk-in closet was also outfitted with built-in dressers, shelving and rows upon rows of hanging space. 

We will post more pictures soon. Thanks for following our progress!
