From Archtectural Plans to Concrete, the Building Process Begins..

As several of our clients already know, last year we started working on plans for our condo atop of a 2 1/2 car garage that would house our tools as well as cars.  We have jumped through several hoops like getting the plans approved by the  Township  and working with a local architect to avoid having to get a variance -  long and expensive process.  We are now at the point where we can move forward with the actual concrete and lumber.  It's always exciting to see the lines on a drawing become the walls of a structure.

 The picture to the right shows the outline of the addition.  It always looks smaller then it actually is for some reason.  The condo upstairs will be 1000 + square foot.

As you can see below, the footings have been started.  And the Dumpster has arrived - hooray.

While the framing and other task will be done by us and other family members who are in the construction business, a local  Concrete Contractor and HVAC Contractor are in place.  I am working on hiring a Roofing Contractor.

A rough draft of the finished condo is below.  I am still designing the space but I have some of the products already picked out.  I've time since we won't actually get to this for a few months yet.  The interior is my realm, so I can not wait.

As we proceed, I will keep you posted.
