Installed the aluminum eaves over at the garage on Sheridan Rd. It sure is an interesting color combination! The garage doors didn't come in today like they were supposed to so we will be heading back to the siding job on Riverwood Dr. in Dalton to continue with the prep for that.

We finished up the porch in Sullivan Township today. The materials for the eaves was delivered today for  the garage on Sheridan Rd. We will be heading there in the morning to install that, then back to the siding job to intall the house wrap.

It was a little too nasty and windy today to install house wrap to continue with the siding job. We instead went over to Sullivan Township to finished an unfinished covered porch. It was the same house we did a bathroom remodel at about a month ago. From the sounds of it we will be building another garage there next spring. Heading back in the morning to wrap things up. The materials that we've been waiting for for the Sheridan garage should also be in tomorrow afternoon!

We are still waiting foe the special order materials to arrive so that we can finish up the garage on Sheridan Rd. In the meantime we started another siding job today in Dalton off River Rd. Its a pretty big job! The colors are going to be completely different from the existing with some custom accents. The front gable end will have some vinyl cedar shake and the side gables will have some half rounds. The main part of the house is going to be a deep green color using some premium siding by Mastic TM. We wil have some before and after photos up soon!

Finished up the steel roof on the horse barn in Norton Shores today. Have to head back in the morning for some clean up though. We will also be installing the siding on the garage in Fruitport that we've been working on. Can't wait until the rest of the materials show up so we can finish it up!

We started the day by installing the siding on the back side of the garage this morning so that the electrical can be installed on Thurday. K&L Electric will be there tomorrow to relocate the electric meter on the garage and run the electrical in the garage. We got half of the steel roof done on the horse barn in Norton Shores. Heading back in the morning to wrap up the other half.

Bought a new compressor this morning. That made it a lot easier to get the roof on the garage. Started some of the siding as well but its looking like we will be heading to a different job tomorrow. The special order aluminum for the eaves and the garage doors won't be here until next week. in the meantime we're going to install a new steel roof on an old horse barn!

The garage is all framed up and we started putting the roof on today. I took one guy with me over to Norton Shore to install a new patio door in another house. The siding and windows is being delivered in the morning for the garage. The finished product is not far off, however, its looking like we might be delayed a little waiting for the special order garage doors and aluminum for the eaves.

Wednesday & Thursday

We poured the rest of the concrete and layed the foundation block for our garage project on wednesday. Today we framed up and sheeted all the walls and got a good start on the roof truss system. By the end of tomorrow it should look like a garage!

We got the concrete poured for the footings and garage floor today! We have another small load coming in the morning for an approach. Then we will be laying the block for the foundation which will be inspected in the afternoon. Should be building walls on Thursday!

We got the footing inspection approval today for the garage in Fruitport. We will be pouring the concrete tomorrow morning! From there it on to the foundation work and the build.

We didn't start the steel roof on the horse barn today. DTE was very cooperative about re routing the gas line that was in our way of the garge. We started digging footings and preparing for concrete. Hopefully the weather will be as cooperative next week for the concrete pour.

Interesting Wednesday!

Wow! What a day. We ran into a couple of snaggs on the first day of our garage project. We have to have a gas line rerouted because it just so happens to be right where the garage is going. It's going to delay things a bit, but, here's to hoping DTE Energy will keep thing going. We may be heading over to Norton Shores to install a steel roof on a horse barn at a clydesdale farm. Tomorrows meeting with a DTE engineer will tell all!

Tied up a few lose ends at some previous jobs today and repaired a leak in a foundation wall in Norton Shores. Secured the permit today for the garage build in Fruitport. We'll be breaking ground tomorrow!
