We are now working to implement live cameras on our jobsites. Currently we are experimenting with cameras on three jobsites – one camera on each floor. This allows us added security. In the future we hope to allow customers to log in and watch progress.

In an earlier blog we mentioned the need to replicate freehand plaster crown molding to match the existing molding to remain. The crown molding was replicated by combining 3 custom smaller separate wood profiles. One original wall in the home was curved that complicated installation. Now that the install is complete the trim has been sprayed and we are very happy with the result.

The tile work is now complete for one of our projects in Chicago, IL. This project included the addition of a new master bath with a generous size shower with a unique shower bench. In the hall bathroom a large shower niche has been tiled ready for the installation of glass shelves.

The ceiling woodwork has been stained. A wall was removed to make a more usable dining room area. Half the beams in this image are original and the other half were added to keep the character of the home.

The exterior of this home has gotten update.
We have just finished installing new siding and trim to complement the existing yellow brick.
This new color makes a bold and clean statement.

An important part of our process that we have found valuable is the weekly site meeting.
One meeting a week allows for us to meet with homeowners and usually the architect to discuss current progress and upcoming decisions needed.
This also allow us to communicate changes and new details to our staff consistently. Without this time homeowners tend to get lost in the process and projects stall needlessly.

One of our companies earliest projects in Andersonville was featured in Remodeling Magazine. This eight page article describes in detail the process behind a gut rehab in Chicago. This craftsman style is still very appealing today.

Pete Pryor found a masonry two flat on 5300 block of North Wayne in Andersonville in the summer of 1993. He recognized that the house had good bones but was in overall poor shape. The previous owner of thirty years had done very little to maintain the property. He also had a compulsion for hoarding.
After 2 weeks of demolition and a half dozen forty-yard dumpster, the place was finally ready to be transformed. Partnering with a local architect, plans were drawn for a full gut rehab and attic addition. The house was completely dismantled down to its shell and the front façade was completely removed. The new rebuilt elevation design allowed the new construction to blend seamlessly with the historic Andersonville aesthetic. The project took six months to complete and home remains as an excellent example good renovation.
