Gary’s Home Improvement was contacted by a customer who wanted a room addition built for her aging mother. It had to be spacious and comfortable. The space needed to be “her” space so she could maintain her independence and dignity. There was a pretty tight timetable …
We started by getting the site work ready by removing the siding and getting the exact measurements needed to make the floor in the existing home match perfectly with the new floor. Then we dug out the required crawl space and footer depth. Take note of the ruts in the ground caused by equipment and material deliveries.
The walls were built and included 2 windows and an entry door for outside access. The ceiling was important because we also had to match the existing roof line to have the finished look of carry through.
The house wrap was installed as well as the windows and door. A small covered porch was being built for egress as well as a place to set and enjoy the country setting.
The porch and deck area are almost completed and the shingled roof was put on both structures.
The interior work was in progress complete with new electric service wired to code.
Here is the finished project-a nice room addition and covered porch area with steps going out to the lawn. There is a slight color difference between the old and new siding due to UV fading. The customer was aware of this before the project began and said to go ahead. Take note of the lawn where there were ruts caused by traffic. It has been filled in and leveled out and reseeded. We had that deadline to meet and we made it. In fact, we were done 2 days before the mother was scheduled to move in. I had the pleasure of meeting the mother a couple of weeks later and she said she was thrilled with her new home. She said it was perfect, with a beaming smile on her face.Simply put, your satisfaction is our # 1 goal.
