White oak flooring has been chosen for this project. The wood has been on site to acclimate and installation as begun. The color of white oak allows for a lighter stain colors. Stain on red oak will always be effected by the natural red undertone of the wood.

Keeping Character : Reproducing Crown Molding

One project we are working on requires the reproduction of plaster crown molding that was originally formed on site by an artisan over one hundred years ago. These artisans are now hard to find and the expense of creating plaster crown molding on site is very cost prohibitive. We have carefully traced a piece of the original molding and we are going recreate the profile using  four individual custom wood pieces. When installed this will have the same dramatic appearance of the original large plaster molding.

UPDATE – New Look On Norwood

We are at a very important stage in this renovation. Choosing the floor stain color can be challenging we combine older flooring with new flooring.  We recommend that the homeowners choose a stain slightly darker than the existing. This will hide the age difference in the flooring and help blend the grain style from each floor plank. Our clients have decided to go with a darker richer color. We have sanded and prepared samples throughout the house to see the color in different lighting conditions. We have also placed trim colors and cabinet door samples next to the samples to show the contract in colors.

UPDATE – New Look On Norwood

This renovation required that new woodwork be seamed in to existing woodwork. We had to add additional ceiling beam details to match the existing detail when the floor plan was opened up. Additional flooring needed to be added and door casings are being built to match the existing throughout the house.

UPDATE – New Look On Norwood

This project is moving along. New windows have been installed and the carpenters are working to install trim and stair spindles and railings.                  

UPDATE – Hone In On Hoyne

All the rough mechanicals have been installed. One very interesting part of this renovation is that the finished 2 story home will have no soffits. In order to achieve this, all the all ducts, pipes and conduit installed by the mechanical subcontractors (plumber, electrical and HVAC) had to be strategically coordinated to fit the limited area of the walls. This picture demonstrates how organized these trades had to be.

Outdoor Spaces

While planning home additions our clients have a new opportunity to access their back yards for entertaining or relaxation. Additional rear windows also allow natural light to the back of a home.

Pryor has begun renovating a 1 bedroom condominium overlooking the Chicago river. All existing finishes have been removed creating a blank slate for the new design. Our crew took special care to leave all common areas spotless.
