recently started work on a residential project in Fair Haven,
NY. This project entails renovating an existing 26' x 40'
garage into living space while adding an enclosed porch and
one car garage. Our client, presently residing in California,
is very much into green building practices as well as renewable
energy. Thus, we will be utilizing many building products
and construction practices that fall into those categories.
A few of those being utilized are: fiber cement siding, cellulose
insulation, wood front door, wood window shutters, soy based
paints and bamboo flooring. Heating and cooling will be provided
by a geothermal heat pump system that, combined with our typical
insulation and air sealing package, will keep energy costs
to a minimum. With an eye to the future, this home will be
almost fully ADA compliant when completed. We will be adding
pictures as the job progresses so you can follow the process.
Projected completion is mid March, but the weather may have
some impact on that.
