The Twin Lake garage is complete! We finished installing the overhead door opener, exterior lights, and we also poured the concrete approach and sidewalk. We will head back in the morning to pull the concrete forms and to do a final clean up. Then we'll head over to Holton to lay out the foundation for the next garage.

The Twin Lake garage is almost there. We should putting the finishing touches on tomorrow. Today we installed the overhead door and got a start on the opener. We also got the electrical installed today. Provided we can get the remaining concrete poured tomorrow that will do it. Next we're heading to Holton to build a 24' x 30' garage with a barn style roof and 20' concrete approach! Hopefully the weather stays cooperative!

Well, we tried to go out to Twin Lake to install the garage door and it turns out we had some of the wrong parts. We finished preping for the remaining concrete. From there we headed back to Muskegon to finish up the two decks that we started on Christmas Eve off Marquette St. I headed down to the south end of Grand Haven to tied up a few lose ends on a bathroom remodle that I subcontracted out. Needless to say, a lot of time was spent driving going from Twin Lake to Grand Haven! Hopefully tomorrow we'll be able to be a little more productive.

The Twin Lake garage is all sided and all of the aluminum eaves were completed on Thursday. We will be installing the garage door and opener, electrical, and the last of the concrete after Christmas and this job will be finished. We have another garage to build I'm Hilton after that. A couple of the guys wanted some extra hours for the holiday so they are in Muskegon building a couple of small decks. Merry Christmas!

The siding is going up fast on the Twin Lake garage! It should be completed by the end of the day tomorrow. From there we'll have to install the garage door and opener and get the electrical in place. I've been trying to tie up a few small projects for other customers before Christmas and that has been going well too. A much needed Christmas break is in the near future but there is also more work to come. After the Twin Lake garage is completed its off to Holton to build another garage! Stay tuned for some new photos.

We installed the roof on the garage in Twin Lake today! We also got a start on the siding and the aluminum eaves. We will be pouring a 4' approach to the garage as well as a walk way around to the service door. We started preping for that which was quite a challenge with the ground as frozen as it is! We should have it close to being ready to pour be the end of tomorrow.

The Bard Rd. project is almost done! The siding is finished, but there is some exterior trim that still needs to be installed along with some vinyl beaded soffit under the new covered porches. We also have to blow in new fiberglass insulation in the attic. There are a few drywall repairs that need to be done to the interior and then its a wrap. We will have a few guys in Twin Lake tomorrow to install some new windows. Once we have these two done its off to build a 24' x 24' garage in Twin Lake.

We're moving right along on the siding at the Bard Rd. job. I had a class for most of the day today to become a certified siding installer by the Vinyl Siding Institute. The guys had a productive day and we should have the siding about done by the end of tomorrow. Then all we'll have left to do is install some bead board soffit under the covered porches, trim out the beams for a finished look, and blow in new insulation in the attic.
