In-SITE: Farmhouse Framing

photo 4

Our farmhouse is under construction! Framing began on July 5th, only a month from beginning framing the house was up. We set the floor trusses and then began framing the walls. Second floor trusses were craned in then we added exterior walls and sheathing. After all the walls were framed the roof went up and then the windows went in.

The site faces the golf course so views are just magnificent from the second floor. The house is nestled into the natural landscape with fully mature trees.  Stay tuned for our next post, we’ll be roughing in plumbing, hvac and electrical.

In-SITE: Farmhouse- Breaking Ground

2014-04-29 23.01.02We are thrilled to break ground on the Farmhouse project. Due to the late frost we had to delay digging our foundation until mid-April. We are excited to be working with Duneland Fine Homes. Take a peak at our photo documention where we broke ground and put in the forms and poured concrete to make our foundation walls.

IN-SITE: Farmhouse Inspiration

stair runner (2)

This is the first post of a new column called, “IN-SIGHT”.  Over the next year I will be sharing two amazing projects with you- a new construction modern farmhouse in Michigan and a conversion of an old church into a single family home in Little Italy.

Modern Farmhouse-  It all starts with a client, a piece of land and a creative vision. Building a new home can be a fun but challenging process.  This blog will allow me the opportunity to share how the creative process evolves into reality.

The first thing we did before hitting the sketch pad was determine the size of the home and budget. Then we started collecting inspirational photos.  I’ve posted our ides below.  Which is your favorite detail?  I love the barn doors and outdoor shower.  We’ll be posting progress each month- see you soon!  -Linc Thelen
