CliffBryanFloorPlanMr. and Mrs. Bryan wanted to add an exercise room off their master bedroom and take advantage of their view of the golf course that their is home next to. Which meant plenty of windows, high vaulted ceilings, window unit for HVAC, well insulated, Andersen Windows, and a tough roof line to tie into. It turned out great and he tells me all the time its the best insulated room in the house.

afternoon sun would over heat the kitchen. Now that the room is built, the added shade made the kitchen more enjoyable to be in and most importantly it gave them an outdoor room to have their morning coffee and in the evenings a place to have their meals.

The Chapel is made from 12″ split logs from the large oak trees that fell when the tornado came over top of the church and through our town a few years ago. The logs where then laid in mortar and saw dust. It was a very time consuming process and took a little longer than we all expected.

We used special ordered cedar rough sawn 12 x 12 timbers for the main structure and then 2×8 rough sawn cedar for the rafters so they could be exposed along with the 1×12 rough sawn cedar planked┬áceiling.

 

The pews are from the old St. Pats church in town and the alter and pictures were hand made by a few members of the parish.

Why do I use Blown Cellulose insulation instead of fiberglass batts?

One of the things we strive for when building homes is to be as energy efficient as possible. I have received more thank yous and compliments from our clients about the savings they are receiving on their Gas/Electric bill.
