Copper Creek Estates Addition / Remodel

An addition to this home consisted of a two-story garage and an airlock entry way.

The lower garage was framed using the insulated concrete foam system, and all garage added in-floor radiant heat. Also included replacement of all windows to a low-E Hurd window. Additions to the exterior included stone around the lower half, keeping the outside maintenance to a minimum. "James Hardi" products -- a shake style here -- were used on the hard-to-reach maintenance areas such as gables.

The existing siding's finish was in bad shape, with accumulative multiple 'unpaid labor quality' applications of unknown finishes; so, we stripped the finish off -- being as 'green' as possible -- using power washers, hand-sanding, and a green product from "Timber Pro UV" (, as well as the finish that was applied to both new and old siding to make a perfect match. Also went to a new 50-year shingle roof and an R-50 ceiling and R-24 wall insulation throughout the home. Real log accents add the finishing touch of character and brings the shake and log sidings together.

The entry not only adds character, but also contributes to energy efficiency -- collecting solar warmth and barrier to the outside -- keeping mud and dirt out of the house.

The second phase was the remodel of the interior space, including an entire new multi-zone hydronic heating system.

An existing wall was removed and replaced with support rough-sawn timber columns, adding an open dining room to create an entire floor for entertaining. The 5-inch wide hickory plank flooring adds rich warm tones to the space.

The garage doors insulation value should be considered as well. This is a Raynor door with an R-18 value and has a great warranty.
