Our Very Proud Moment

Posted on January 21, 2017 at 7:58 AM Comments comments (0)
CUMMING: We try to do good business and good work for many good reasons. And what do we get? We get our objective which is to be referred by our clients and we're very thankful when it occurs. 

Here is our referral project. Great homeowners, really, really good people. But, we had to tear this little oasis down to build a new one.






Armando in thought as he's the one leading the project. The clients actually removed all the plants and furniture. 










Here's the pretty much finished project but it's the pics below that demonstrate the process. 












We busted up the concrete that was unusually thick for a patio slab.













And we're off to pouring the new slab. 













             This is certainly a skill....














The slab is poured, pretty much dried and onward to the next step...














                      


                   BAM!!!!
How awesome is this huh? Wood plank stamped concrete. It's not a cheap process but it is a great looking product. The clear coat is still wet but it'll tone down some. 

















the color is Leather - with a semi-gloss clear coat finish.





















Here it is with furniture....looks really nice. 












This was the start....














The framing went up pretty quick...











The knee walls, chimney and roof...











This is the fireplace mantel....I went to PMC Building Supplies for a 4x6 rough-sawn cedar mantle. Walked the warehouse with Joe from PMC Building Supplies, and found our piece way up on a shelf, needed the forklift to bring it down it was so high. 







We went to Stone Center of Georgia to select the knee wall stone caps...they had to match the stones selected by the homeowner.










Here were are at the North Georgia Brick yard getting fire rated bricks and stones for the chimney we're building.














There's the start...











There's the finish....rough-sawn cedar mantel, knew wall cap stones, and fire rated brick for the chimney.










The stone processes start with this corner first....














Stone work is yet another skill....














Looking nice...













Look at this....beautiful















All that's missing is the custom ordered chimney cap....screen in 3-season addition...














       The start from afar....













Looking nice....













    


           Looking Done!!













My corner, my view....
















Making it happen....














Beautiful stone work














BAAAAMMM! look at the ceiling....tongue & groove ceiling, stained. 4x6 rough-sawn cedar beams, recessed lights, ceiling fans (the clients had speakers installed). This looks great

<--The homeowners wanted the bench seating removed for safety (the little ones)











The after - notice the bottom rail 2x4's are behind the balusters. This way the little ones can't step up on the rails. :) 











The homeowner wanted a 4 season sunroom. We replaced the decking but first we installed a roof covering system to maximize head room underneath. 











We installed plywood then other substrates just like on a roof.












A nice view....

















This is the old look...screen in rotted patio.













The transformation...four windows will give the room ample sunshine














We finished it off just like the exterior of the home...














It's now painted but the rest of the home was so faded. Hopefully we'll win the paint bid. 














The Before..it was all rotted














The posts you see were eliminated which gave us more living space. 












In the works....
















The finished product....at the end the homeowner asked for a small roof cover above the door.













A view from inside....














We do lots and lots of drywall work....the flooring is tile.












We trimmed out the windows, painted and more...

















A view from the entrance door...













No time for home staging

















This is what the framing looks like...we removed siding from the dwelling walls, and insulated the heck out of the room.










Electrical outlets and more....














We had some delays with the windows but I have to say the homeowner rose above it.
