Each project begins with working with the client on the design of the home. The needs of the client always vary as do the requirements of the site. As I tell clients - in ten years I have never delivered a 100% "standard" plan. Whether starting with one of our pre-engineered models or a custom design - each home is your custom home.
Then comes getting the building permit. Well enough said on that..............
And construction begins with the preparing the foundation and the subfloor and getting the site ready for the wonderful day the framing package arrives.
With this project I was fortunate enough that the client was a professional photographer - but he also chose to act as an owner/contractor/builder and was involved in all aspects from the design to chosing the finishes in the home.
The framing package arrives in the morning and with the subfloor done the walls began to immediately go into place following the panel plan.
As a two story house the second story floor joists are placed, the stairs are built and with the floor sheathing down the second story wall panels begin to go in place.
Finally the trusses are lifted into place ready for the roof sheathing.
In this case it took about three weeks for the home to be a locked in shell - ready for the finsihing of the exterior with the stucco and roofing. The interior was also started with the plumbing, electrical, insulation and finishing.
In this case the client finsihed the home exactly to his own tastes and needs.
