Arvada House Construction

Added on by Chris Gebhart.

Construction of the Arvada House remodel and addition has been ongoing through October & November, and the project, both inside and out, is really taking shape. 

After the concrete pour for the new addition, the wood framed walls began to rise.  Prefabricated wood trusses were placed, and window openings framed.  The stock truss plates will be replaced later by more aesthetic steel plates, as the trusses are exposed in the living room.


 The new north wall of the addition was built around the existing fireplace, and will become a nice centerpiece to the living room.  The transparency of the west elevation is now apparent, and will bring in nice views of the site and light into the house.
