Construction Update at The Carlisle

The past month’s construction updates 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. The Carlisle is turning out to be a spectacular home on a gorgeous Washington Park lot and we are still tracking to a completion date around the first of the year.

Final Stages of The Chadwick

We have entered into the final stages of building The Chadwick, Chaffey Building Group’s first home in the charming Laurelhurst neighborhood. Landscapers finished installing the irrigation system and planting the various flowers, trees, and shrubs, including some stunning magnolia trees. The Jenn-Air® appliances are installed in the kitchen and we are preparing for the first finish coat on the site-finished red oak hardwood floors, and putting in the carpet. The next few weeks will be focused on completing the final stages, cleaning and detailing the home in anticipation of our upcoming Grand Opening event. We are very excited to finish this home and present our new addition to the Laurelhurst community, so be on the lookout for your invitation!

Demolition completed in Laurelhurst

We recently demolished the home at 4546 48th Ave NE and are underway with exporting debris and excavating the lot in anticipation of building another new Craftsman-style home, The Burnaby.  Next, we will be pouring the foundation and going vertical soon. This 4000+ sq ft home will offer 3 stories of gorgeous design and attention to detail with 5/6 bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms, and a 2-car garage.  With the seamless transition from the great room to a covered outdoor living area, professional-grade appliances, and expansive backyard, this home provides for limitless entertaining possibilities.

The Carlisle is structurally complete

The Carlisle is structurally complete now that the framers have finished and exterior doors and windows are installed.  This home invites you to enter through the grand entrance of double front doors with glass panels and double sidelights.  In addition, we installed sliding glass “walls” with four stacking panels that open to both of the covered outdoor living areas.  The lower level slider produces a 12 foot opening and the main level slider opens 10 feet wide.  These sliders will allow for a seamless transition from indoor to outdoor living and entertaining.  Siders are still working their way around the exterior of the home.  The next step of our construction process will consist of drywall installation and taping and texturing the walls in preparation for painting.

Demolition in Houghton

We recently completed our demolition and excavation processes to prepare for the construction of The Wescott, a brand new contemporary home in Houghton. We finished pinning and building the foundation and are now working on pouring the footings and walls.  The next phase of construction will include waterproofing the foundation, installing footing and downspout drains, and back-filling the lot.

Siding at The Chadwick

The Chadwick is transitioning from a structure to a home now that all of the siding has been installed.  Last week we focused on hanging the sheetrock in the interior.  Now we are working to get all of the interior walls textured and taped in anticipation of painting.  Additionally, we are preparing for pouring the new driveway, apron, and curb.
