The Alum Rock Project

We have a remodel going on in Alum Rock. The demo was completed last week and some of the framing and roofing has begun. This remodel will include the garage, the living room, the bathroom, one of the bedrooms, and the laundry room. We will also be adding a porch with an overhang. I've added the floor plans for this project and a couple pics of the framing that went on this week. On a side note, we have completed the San Jose remodel and will be adding a final post for that project early next week.

The Montain View Project

I'm finally updating the Mountain View Project that I first blogged about in April. As you can see in these pics, things are just about finished on this one room addition. I'm reposting the pics of the plans, as well as the "before" picture. That way you can see how the home has changed, and how the final product compares to the plans. Don't forget to click on the link above to visit our website. We have several pictures of past projects on our portfolio page.

The Campbell Project

I'm running a little behind on the blog, but here is the update from Friday. I've posted the end of the week pics from the job site in Campbell. We didn't get quite as far as planned but the forms were removed to reveal the foundation, and the construction will continue this week.

Campbell Project

We are in the process of adjusting our blog to bring a more in-depth look at the entire remodel/addition process. In the coming weeks we want to provide updates on multiple projects. It is our plan to show what work is being done on each project and how it is tracking to the planned schedule.
We are still toying with the exact format, but here are some more pics of a project being worked on in Campbell, CA. It is a large master bedroom addition, and we have added plans and some "before" pics, as well as the construction currently being done. Right now the concrete is being poured and you can see the completed forms for the foundation. The plan is to construct the flooring and begin framing by the end of the week. We'll be updating this project again on Friday, to let you know how the execution lived up to the planning. In the mean time we hope to get some more of our projects posted as well.
