The Back Story
This owner came to us with a real challenge—the contractor she’d originally hired failed to meet her expectations. The Curtice Group was asked to finish the project midway through. The project consisted of the renovation of an existing three-story house as well as a large addition with a cathedral ceiling and extensive window space.
Original condition and siding of house.
View of original front porch and siding.
Project begins. Removal of old siding and demo of rear basement entrance.
Excavation for rear foundation of new addition in back of house.
Foundation for new, rear addition has been poured and steel frame has been erected.
Front view of property with the removal of old siding and demolition of old porch.
Things are beginning to take shape. Here, the first floor has been framed and laid down, and the second floor is being started.
Addition walls and roof have now been framed and provide a good sense of interior space and height of cathedral ceiling.
The original house with all siding removed and the rear addition with walls framed and enclosed.
Great overlook on window views and strapped cathedral ceiling from the second floor balcony.
Scaffolding is in place and windows have begun to be installed in the addition.
Installation of new plumbing lines for what will become second story master bathroom.
Exceptional view of interior space of the addition from back to front, capturing the second story balcony.
Snow has arrived as have materials for continued construction. New windows and new siding have been installed.
Application of spray foam insulation. We believe spray foam provides superior air infiltration and insulating properties. We advocate its use for applicable projects.
Additional view of applied spray foam.
First floor archway and walls have been plastered.
One of two high efficiency furnaces installed in the basement.
View from fist floor addition showing cased and trimmed doors and windows as well as decorative board ceiling.
Flooring, baseboard, and stair installation.
