Cary Bonus Room Addition – Outside nearly complete

The exterior of the Cary Bonus Room project is nearly complete.  Our goal was incorporate the original design into the upper portion of the front roof gable.  We raised the gable vent up to better vent the attic space.  Check out the before and after photo.

Drywall and stucco update on the Cary Bonus Room Project

Drywall and Stucco pictures:  The drywall is being installed and over the next week it will be finished.  On the outside this is the first step in the stucco installation.  Since stucco is such a delicate product and because it is only as good as the installation (especially the waterproofing of the framing) the blue waterproofing is installed and then inspected by the manufacturer’s representative.  The guy on the scaffolding looked things over today and we have our certification letter in hand.  Now the stucco finish begins.  That will take about a week to do.  More photos to follow as the project moves forward.

Cary Bonus Room Project

Progress update for the Cary Bonus Room Project. 

Insulation was installed and the roof has been finished this week.  The roofers were real troopers in the heat, THANK YOU guys for your hard work.  This upcoming week we will see drywall installation and the stucco siding will begin.  This will be a huge week visually.  Normally about 4 weeks from completion once the drywall is installed.

Cary Bonus Room Project Update – we had a visitor

Hi everyone, Just before the insulation is complete on any of our projects we go through and photo all of the open walls.  That way if the drywall people inadvertently bury an outlet we can find it easily.  It also gives us and the homeowner some way of knowing what is behind a particular wall.  Once the project completes the owner gets a CD with all of the accumulated photos including the final photo shoot session.  In this case while I was at the home, we had a visitor.  At first I thought it was one of the inspectors but he wasn’t carrying a clipboard.  Not really a good conversationalist either.  Follow the link in the title to see other photos of this project which will be going into drywall at week’s end.  Dramatic change, I’ll post more pictures.  Today and tomorrow the roofers are there putting on the cedar shakes.  I hope they are careful in this heat.  If we can help you with your project just let me know – John@blue-ribbon-construction.com

Cary Bonus Room Addition

Update on the progress of the Cary Bonus Room Addition by Blue Ribbon.  We have plumbing drain lines and tomorrow we’ll have water lines, then on to the inspection.  The cedar shingles for the roof should arrive tomorrow. 

Termite trails

Whoa, what a beam, in case of a storm, stand under here

Plumbing drain lines, water lines tomorrow

More termite trails, they really ate this house up, must have been tasty
Plumbing drains

The framing is nearly finished and OBTW, the framers uncovered significant termite damage at the entry way.  If there is water intrusion in the walls or around doors and windows this is the spot that termites love to hang out.

Video from the main house looking toward the front showing wall framing – This is from Tuesday morning – by now the guys are setting the rafters and hopefully by tomorrow will have a plywood cover over the project.  Next comes mechanicals and roof next week.
