One of our many projects currently underway, here's another home we're working on with our good friends at Woodhaven Homes.
This sprawling Brookfield residence will differentiate itself partly by the brick that was chosen. This selection is first rate, full of very subtle variation in color and shade, and with lots of pleasant dings and character.
Additionally, our masons are crafting some really pretty - and again, very subtle - corbelling and brick accents throughout the veneer. Old-school, elegant keystones and soldier courses above windows, brick sills, a nice circular vent with detailed surround, and a healthy brick chimney all add to the charm and feel of this design and execution. Our resident 'brick ninja' (a fitting title, given by recent hire David Stockland) Pat Janzer has shown great leadership and input on this job, and all involved should be proud of the results.
Have a look at a few pictures of this nice residential project and feel free to check out the Woodhaven site and see what they're about...and also a quick shout out to some other friends at Lycon, from whom we buy among other things a whole lot of mortar and concrete. You'll often see one of their towers out there in the thick of things on our job sites! ~by Karl Zarling
Yep, it was time to check out those cords, which does not actually involve gold chains or Bee Gees. Not as a rule anyway.
Cord check means us going through every electric saw, and drill, and mixer, whatever...taking inventory, checking continuity, fixing what's iffy, tossing the lost causes.
Cause a big shock when you're up 20 or 30 feet ain't great. You know...Staying Alive. ~ by Karl Zarling
