We finished up installing another house of our UniShield windows out in Twin Lake at the end of last week into Monday. These were all casement style windows. The home owner also decided to replace all of the entry doors in the house with UniShield Doors! We ordered them up yesterday and will be installing them after the new year. We also started hanging drywall in Fruitport Township today at the new Jericho Road Church building. I believe that we have cleared all of the hurdles needed for the fire sprinkler system. We should be able to progress with this one a little more quickly now! We will also have another crew in The City of Muskegon installing a new steel roof later this week.

We have had all of our subcontractors over at Jericho Road Church project in Fruitport Township. They have been working on installing the new electrical, heating and cooling systems, and the piping for the fire suppression system. As soon as all of this is completed we can begin installing the drywall. Meanwhile we have been in Roosevelt Park working on a roofing project. We are adding a slight slope to an existing flat roof for better water run off. This also required replacing five windows on an upper level to accommodate the new slope. From there we will be installing new low slope modified buitimen roofing. Last week we installed another house full of our UniShield windows. These were our top of the line triple pane premium windows. Turned out real nice with new exterior trim.

I've been at bit behind on posting to our blog here, I guess that what happens when you're double shifting! We finally finished up the framing job for the recording studio in Grand Haven. It took five weeks in all of framing and it was the most bizzare and complex framing job I've ever been a part of. It does feel good to have it behind us since none of us are big fans of working at night! We also finished up a 40'x60' pole barn in Nunica and we are waiting for 2 special order doors to finish up an office build out for the North Muskegon State Farm office.

Wednesday August 8th

We took a little break from the 40'x60' pole barn that we started working on in Fruitport Township this week. The lift that we were using has been under repair so we were unable to proceed. In the meantime, we started a roof replacement in North Muskegon. Along with the roof, we replaced all of the aluminum eaves to allow for better ventilation.

Wednesday, May 9th

We started a new roofing project in Grand Haven last week. The weather wasn't very cooperative at the end of last week and Monday of this week. Since then it has been quite nice and we are making some progress. This one is a very old historical home down town and we we are doing a unique install to provide added insulation. We are building the roof deck up with 1 1/2" insulated foam board with new OSB on top of that which will provide an additional R-15 or so. We did run into a little snag right from the start. There are 5 layers of roofing on it! In 15 years this is only the second time I have ever came across that many. It will add about an extra week on to the job but we have to get it down to the original decking. We will also be installing new windows and an elevated deck on this house.

Wednesday, May 2, 2012

Wednesday, May 2nd

We were supposed to start a new roofing project in Grand Haven today but the morning weather did not allow that. Instead we went over to Maranatha in Norton Shores and installed a new glass entry door with two sidelights. Tomorrows weather looks a little iffy as well.

First we are building the roof up with 1 1/2" foam insulation board and installing new decking over that.

Tomorrow we will keep going on the floor and bathroom.

We finished up everything over at Maranatha in Norton Shores last week. We installed some new siding on the third story of one of their apartment buildings. After the siding was up, we installed 12 awnings over the upper balconies. Today we started a remodel in North Muskegon. We are gutting a bathroom and completely redoing that, installing new laminate flooring in a bedroom, kitchen, and dining area, painting, and installing new trim.

We were back at Marantha in Norton Shores today. We are removing some old rotted siding from the third story on one of the apartment buildings and replacing it. After the new siding is installed we will be installing 12' awnings back up. I hope the weatherman misses the mark with the ice storm forecasted for tonight.

We spent the end of last week and today up in Whitehall on White Lake. We knocked out a couple of wall to open up the floor plan. One was between the kitchen and the living room, and the other was between the living room and the front entry. We got it all opened up and trimmed out. It made a big difference and now the rooms flow together. Tomorrow we will be heading back to Maranatha in Norton Shores to replace some damaged siding and install some awnings.

We poured the concrete floor and approach at the 24'x24' garage we've been working on at Maranatha in Norton Shores. It was a perfect day for it! We'll be back tomorrow to finish up the siding on the front. We also have to install the garage door and install a fire wall where the garage is attached to the house and some steps. That will wrap this one up.

The 24'x24' pole barn we are building at Marantha in Norton Shores is all framed up and the roof was installed today. Tomorrow we will be installing the aluminum eaves and vinyl siding. Hopefully the weather stays the way its been. If so we can pour the concrete on Monday and finish this one up!

We started a 24'x24' post framed garage at Maranatha in Norton Shores today. Actually we dug the holes for the poles on Friday and they were inspected this morning. We got the poles set and the walls framed up today. Tomorrow we will set the roof truss and hopefully get started sheeting the walls. We also got word today that we are also doing several other projects on the Maranatha campus.

We started a small porch remodel in Whitehall today. We are installing three new windows and drywall on the interior of a 8'x12' porch to make it kind of a mini three seasons room. We had to rebuild one of the walls because it was rotted out. We also found out today that the permit is ready for a 24'x24' post framed garage at Maranatha in Norton Shores. We will be starting that one at the end of the week.

We finished up the water damage repair in Norton Shores today. Since we had to replace some drywall the homeowners had us open up a wall between the their dining room and great room. It really opened it up! After that we tied up some lose ends at another project. Tomorrow we are heading back to a house in N. Muskegon to install three new garage doors. We installed new siding and roofing on this house about 1 1/2 years ago. That should buy us enough time to obtain the permit for a garage at Maranatha.

We will be redoing a section of roofing and siding as well as tearing out a wall and repairing some drywall. I'll have some new photos up soon of the kitchen and the new roof system that we did on Duck Lake Rd.

We could have wrapped it up today but we are waiting for one little vent to arrive, and the weather wasn't the best today. Next we will be heading over to Norton Shore for a roof repair and to fix some water damage.

It was a cold and wet one out there today. Despite getting soaked, we managed to get the majority of the eaves done. We will have those finished up tomorrow. We should also be able to get some of the new siding installed. Hopefully its not so wet tomorrow.

We ended up beating the snow just in time! We finished installing the new shingles at around noon last Thursday. On Friday we got a start on the new aluminum eaves. Tomorrow we will continue on the eaves and get started of installing the new siding of the gable ends. The front gable is going to have some decorative shake siding. By this weeks end this one be just about there.

We almost got the roof shingled today at the Dusk Lake Rd. job. Hopefully the weather will hold off long enough to finish it up tomorrow morning. It will be nice to get that part behind us if it snows like they say it is.

We finished up the last little bit of framing today at the roof truss job on Duck Lake Rd. We also started installing the new shingles and got a pretty good start in doing so.

How about this weather for January? We have been very fortunate considering the type of project we are working on. Things have been going great at the Duck Lake Rd. job. We worked all weekend due to the favorable weather and have all of the new trusses framed up and just finished all of the new roof sheeting today. The shingles were delivered this afternoon and we will start installing those tomorrow. Hopefully we can beat the snow that supposed to be here Thursday!

Happy New Year! We hope everyone had a great holiday season! We had a change in plans from what was originally expected for the start of 2012. We were supposed to begin a 32'x40' pole barn in Fennville, but that will be delayed for about two weeks. Instead we are starting a project on Duck Lake Rd. in North Muskegon. We will be removing the entire rafter roof system and replacing them with new energy heel trusses. We will be adding a significant amount of insulation and proper ventilation. Once all that is done, new shingles and installing new aluminum eaves. Hopefully the weather cooperates!
