Additions on House, Part 2.5 – Kitchen & Bathroom

We’ve seen the exterior and interior of the first addition, and we’ve had a look at the exterior and the entryway of the second addition. This leaves us with two more rooms in the second addition: a summer kitchen and a bathroom.

We start off with the kitchen, drywall hung but not yet painted:Photo Dec 13, 11 12 30 AM

Kitchen cabinet installation in process:2017-01-03 13.51.48

The cabinets are installed and painted, and the countertops and the sink are in place:HB4116

The finished kitchen in all its glory:20180109_081434

On the right side of the kitchen we have the washer and dryer, with storage compartments above and beneath:20180109_081952

Next to the washer and dryer, one of the drawers is a fold-out ironing board in disguise:20180109_083052

And on the left side of the kitchen we have the stove and refrigerator, gleaming stainless steel against the bold white lines of the tile backsplash:20180109_083123

Next we take a look into the bathroom, where the vanity cabinet is installed and shower built, but not yet tiled:2017-01-03 13.51.54

The gray vanity and cabinets and white marbled countertop with contrasting black handles and faucet make for a stunning bathroom:20180109_081013

And we finish with a quick look into the all-tile walk-in shower:

Additions on House, Part 2 – Exterior & Entryway

We’ve looked at the outside and inside of addition number one. Now we’ll step around to the back side of the house and take a look at the second addition.

Here we can see the concrete slab in place, while the brick siding on the original part of the house is being removed:DCIM100MEDIADJI_0236.JPGThe new addition is framed, house-wrap and Tamko® Heritage shingles installed:DCIM100MEDIADJI_0260.JPGBrickwork in progress:20161017_09264820161017_092725The exterior of the completed addition:20180109_081724

Additions on House, Part 1.5 – Doors & Interior

Last time we watched the exterior progress of an addition on a house being built. Now it’s time to step inside this beautiful front door and see what happened to the interior.

But first, let’s stop and notice the wood-grain texture on this fiberglass exterior door:20180109_075707

A look at the interior of the both the front door and the french doors opening onto the patio, before and after being finished:

Stepping back in time a little, we see the window seat with custom shelving on either side still unfinished:Photo Sep 05, 12 53 21 PM

And we’re back, looking at the completed living room, tasteful and inviting:20180109_080000

A closer look at the finished bookshelves and window seat:20180109_08002620180109_080041 (1)

A view from inside of the addition reveals a glimpse of the original house, where we also installed luxury vinyl plank flooring to match the addition’s floor:20180109_082820A closer look at the wainscoting on the hallway wall:20180109_08251420180109_082034

On the other side of the hallway wall, we put in a spacious pantry with custom-built shelving:20180109_082654

We also installed some additional custom-built cabinetry in the original dining room, complete with a work station: 20180109_08243520180109_082456

And a before and after of the decorative beam in the center of the cathedral ceiling which we installed and stained:Photo Sep 08, 10 25 50 AM20180109_082339

So what do you think? Do you want a room like this? A place to entertain guests or just to spend time with your family… 20180109_080011

We built one, we can build another. Just the same, or we can change it up to express your unique style. It’s up to you. Contact us here, or give us a call at (870) 845-1121.

But this inviting living room isn’t all that we added onto this home. Next week we’ll take a look at the second addition. Want to see? Enter your email on the right or like our page on Facebook.

Additions on House, Part 1 – Exterior

Most long-term homeowners have, at some point, felt that their house was just a little cramped. Some homeowners decide to do something about it. We constructed two additions for one such family on their home near Nashville, AR.

Breaking ground on the front side of the house for the first addition:20160527_100945

The dirt pad is built:20160609_150319

Concrete footings are poured:20160610_140005

Framing in progress:IMG_20160714_130137806

Interior view of the framing:IMG_20160714_130222555

In this photo, you can catch a glimpse of how we tied this new addition into the home’s original gable line:IMG_20160725_150402331

House-wrap is installed, as well as Tamko® Heritage shingles in the Weathered Wood color:IMG_20160725_150337261IMG_20160725_150433030

Aerial shot of the brickwork in progress:DCIM100MEDIADJI_0270.JPG

As you can see in this photo, we removed the brick and vinyl siding on the original house and replaced it with Acme® brick as well, in order to give the whole building as seamless a look as possible:DCIM100MEDIADJI_0269.JPG

Some shots of the finished addition’s exterior:20180109_07534220180109_07555420180109_075628

It’s fun to see the exterior change from dirt-work to finished, but that is something anyone who chose to drive down that road could have seen. Next week, we’ll look at something that only a few people got to see: the work done on the interior. Enter your email on the right or like our page on Facebook to be sure you don’t miss it!
