FC: Hoota: New Home 2010
1: This old house was not designed for the hillside lot. The car port was too low and there were a total of fourteen stair steps the homeowner had to negotiate from the car to the kitchen. There was also a lack of curb appeal.
2: so many
5: MAKING MEMORIES
6: With Heavy Equipment this house was easily demolished as David and his grandson watch.
7: The hillside slope was then terraced to accomodate the new three level house, the new elevated driveway, and the new covered patio and walkways.
9: After the structural fill was rolled out and the footing trenches dug then footings and retaining walls are built. At this point the formwork, reinforcement, and utilities are prepared for the monolithic slab on grade foundation.
10: After all the utilities and steel are in place and the building inspector and the engineer are satisfied the concrete is poured. The pictures above are taken six weeks after the start of demolition.
11: A thirty meter overhead boom pump places the eighty four cubic yards of concrete into the forms.
13: Pacific Style Construction at work framing the house with oversized beams, larger headers, and more wall sheathing than required by the engineer.
14: The Trusses are boomed into position.
15: Careful planning and measuring produces better results.
16: These photos taken at about three months of construction show the house almost framed. Pacific Style Construction upgraded the rafters from 2x6 to 2x8 at no charge for a better look.
18: The roofing material delivery.
19: A thirty year asphalt shingle roof is installed by Pacific Style Construction's licensed and qualified roofing subcontractor.
20: The windows and mechanical ducts are installed. The entryway ceiling is redesigned by the Contractor to a vaulted arch to accent and compliment the other arches in the house.
21: The aidewalks and exterior paving are poured and the 13,000 square feet of interior gypboard is delivered.
22: The first step to the stucco type exterior finish is the installation of Dense Glass backer board.
24: Our talented Mexican plasterers finish the drywall on the interior before starting the stucco exterior.
25: Stucco type finishes have to be installed by very experienced and qualified journeymen finishers. Pacific Style Construction has the best!
26: The first floor roofing is installed after the second floor stucco so that the roofing will not be damaged by the workers. The windows and doors have to be protected during this phase of construction.
27: Here you can see the house structure, exterior finishes, and interior walls finished and ready for the cabinets, doors, millwork, and flooring.
28: Doors, door casings, shelves, millwork, stone showers, and flooring are shown during installation.
29: Pacific Style Construction designs and builds the best stone showers in the industry. Thet are both beautiful and very durable. We expect these showers to last fifty years or more.
30: Pacific Style Construction doesn't just install floors, we bulid them one step at a time prepping the surface with the best underlayment and planning all transitions to perfection.
31: Cabinet installation is no less detail oriented especially when we install drop down soffits over the cabinsts.
38: Thank You
