Barracks/Rugby Road Renovation
Originally we were hired to finish out a basement into a pair of guest suites and convert a first floor master bedroom suite into a library/music room.
The job expanded to include remodeling much of the houses interior and then, working with a landscape architect, convert the yard into a beautiful park-like setting.
Notes From Bill
During the renovation, the owner decided to create a dry patio area for their guests to be located off a basement living room under the existing rear deck.
When we removed the original decking, to increase the decks size and install a new support beam, we installed sloped pans between the joists to divert rainwater into a gutter hidden in the support beam.
In addition, we installed drop down movable screens that allowed the patio to be bug free; the screens are hidden and controlled remotely.
What The Owner Says
“When I tell people that the word which most describes my year-long construction project is “fun” nobody believes me. When I explain that I was able to leave you to get on with the work while I was in London for three months, nobody believes me. But these things are true.”
