Seattle Fire Department Recruit House Fire Training at CBG’s Property in Seattle

CBG partnered with Seattle Fire Department (SFD) to provide this critical opportunity for their newest members to experience twelve fires in three days. This is something that not every recruit will get to experience nor will likely get to go on this many calls within their first three years in the field.

A week prior to the training, all interior was removed from our home, including carpets, cabinets, appliances, duct work, heating and cooling systems, etc. The walls, floors and ceilings were lined with a layer of Oriented Stand Board (OSB) covered by multiple layers of Sheetrock.

Once the building was ready, training began. 25 recruit firefighters, their instructors and 10 staff safety line firefighters were onsite. The ignition team lights wooden pallets and hay to start the fires and the drill begins just as if they were reacting to a real fire response.

It was a real pleasure working with the Seattle Fire Department and was a fun training event for us and local neighbors to experience. Not all structures are suited for this type of training, but if you have any homes set for demolition, we know SFD would love the opportunity to partner with others to offer this training to future recruits.

Progress on The Burnaby!



September was spent working on pouring the foundation footing and walls. This was followed by spraying waterproofing on the foundation. We then installed a drain mat and downspouts as well as connected to the utilities. Since the foundation is complete, we can now focus our efforts on the framing process which will start next week. Once this is complete, we will begin installing all of the windows throughout the frame and roofers will get started.

Totally floored.

Lots of new flooring trends going on right now. Reclaimed wood, large format tile in living areas, cork, cut and loop carpet and yes, even vinyl are making their ways onto designer’s pages. What are your thoughts? Personally, I’ve always been a fan of reclaimed woods. Scoot on over to HGTV to check out a slideshow of what’s hot right now.

Finding Your Inner Designer

Fixtures make the most of your kitchen. Pay attention to how they catch light, whether they are easily maintained and if they match the style of your architecture. You can always go a bit against the grain…but be careful to stray too far.

Update on The Carlisle!



This past month consisted of blowing in insulation, installing drywall, preparing the walls for paint, and installing the site-finished white oak hardwood floors. Our next steps will be installing the millwork/wainscoting and tile throughout the home. As seen in the picture of the dining room above on the left, the rooms in this home are flooded with an abundance of natural light. This is turning out to be a spectacular home on a gorgeous lot and we are still tracking to a completion date around the first of the year.
