Archive for the ‘trim’ Category

We are almost totally finished with our work on the Nelson home near Glenville. We’ve also shingled a house, remodeled a bathroom, put steel on a huge shed and also a garage… among other things that I’m surely forgetting.
It’s been a great first half of the year. The customers have been awesome. I appreciate their business.
This summer we will be starting on a new, slab on grade, one story home for a great family near Northwood, Iowa. We have also been booked to build a series of homes in Charles City for a development named Parkside.
The Parkside Development is a change of pace from our normal direct building for homeowners, but it’s all been positive so far in the planning process. Morning conference calls are a nice alternative to evening and weekend meetings.
Basically we just do our best to keep up with demand and add new employees to the workforce as needed. So far we’ve been able to find some great skilled workers.
Hope our luck keeps up.
Here are some highlights from the Nelson Home.

This week has sent Andy down to Southern Iowa, past Ottumwa to the Pine Ridge Hunting Lodge to build a new lodge for Tom & Rhonda Brakke at their hunting preserve.  You can click the link to see their accommodations so far.  Right up his alley, huh?  🙂

In the meantime, the crew is going strong at the Helgeson home putting up trim and prepping for insulation.  Some of the things they have been working on last week don’t show much in the photos, but they coated all the concrete on the foundation that shows to give it a really nice, finished look.  Also they installed all the soffit and fascia, which takes quite a while on a home this big, with so many corners and you don’t have much to show for it when you’re done.  Soon the siding will be getting installed and that will really show BIG progress and FAST!

Better let these guys get back to work...

I am a little embarrassed since I haven’t posted pictures of progress on this home since the ones I took May 6th… so actually you will see a lot of progress compared to the last ones I posted.  I did take some pictures May 21st just never got around to getting them up on the blog.

At the end of May they erected the garage panel walls, and finished all the roofing.  They also installed all the windows and Andy framed in some arched doorways that will be sheetrocked.  (They did have a whole week off from this project while they went to Brainerd, but the home-owners didn’t mind at all.  They were actually a little happy because it gave them time to make some decisions they hadn’t really had time to think about since progress has been moving so fast.  It was a win-win.)

Can’t wait to see the pictures Andy brings back after working on the lodge.  I’ll be sure to share them as soon as he returns… I promise!

Enjoy!

The Lunning house is getting close to completion.  These last two weeks have been a buzz of activity as the cement was poured in the garage, the tile was laid in the bathrooms, light fixtures were hung and all sorts of other finishing touches are installed.

The Andy Houg Construction crew has been busy installing trim and interior doors, stair railing and closet systems.  I was able to stop out a couple times to get some photos taken on my ipod.

Enjoy!

P.S. I had to “walk the plank” to get to the house last time… this weather sure is a pain, but at least it’s starting to feel like spring.
