St. Paul Tear Down and Modern Rebuild

 

After a busy summer season, we’re taking some time to recap and reflect on a current project our team is well underway with.

We are in the heart of Saint Paul with this “tear down and rebuild.” From the start this has been an exciting property to be a part of. We started by demoing the original home to make way for a new, modern house fitting the vision and needs of our homeowners.

This new home will have many state-of-the-art, unique features including:

  • A modern, architectural design
  • Bluestone steps and covered walks
  • Green roof (“live roof”)
  • Windows and insulation maximized for energy efficiency
  • Cedar Siding
  • White Oak Flooring
  • “Stair Tower” – a floating stairway, with metal framework, wood treads
  • Metal Fireplace
  • And much more!

 

Our progress pictures help add color to this exciting story and capture the journey through real, behind-the-scenes shots. We’re looking forward to seeing the final product and sharing our “After” photos upon completion—stay tuned!

Concrete and Framing

In this post we have just a couple progress pics and at the end a couple tidbits.

It was a good day to pour concrete! Here you can see the soon-to-be crawl space area on the right. The pour went exceptionally well and the great weather certainly didn’t hurt!


A morning’s start on the back porch framing and below it – later that same day a garage frame with rafters and roof sheeting!

Notice the garage has five (5) doors! A double, a single, two patios, and one service door!


On the left you can see where we cut an access to the attic above the kitchen, dining, and bathroom areas that are getting remodeled. This is so we can vacuum out all the insulation and other loose material before pulling down the ceilings. It’s a great way to minimize dust. On the right is a courtesy we extend on our projects that both our trade partners and the homeowners appreciate – out in the woods even!
