The stair way from the second to third floor went in a few weeks back. This section of stairway is a floating stairway. The treads will be an oak wrap. The stringer will remain visible and there will also be a custom steel handrail. All the metal work on this project is being done by Curly Metal Fabrication!

We can’t say enough about working with great people, and Ben Curly and his team are great to work with! Below is Andrew welding things together, which I personally was thrilled about because it meant no more hauling materials up and down a ladder!! Woohoo!!
Things are rolling on our Berthoud Project. The cellulose has been blown in and drywall is just about finished. Here is a little peek around the house.
Standing in the Dinning Room, kitchen to the right.
Looking out from the Master bedroom toward the Office (where tiny boss is), Living and Dinning rooms. Also looking up to the second level.
In the Master bedroom, to the left is the closet and to the right is the bathroom.
Moving upstairs, we can see a bedroom, bathroom and the beginning of the loft space.
Here we see the rest of the loft space, a second bedroom is behind the loft wall and then to the right is the mechanical room.
Looking down out from the loft area toward the entry way where the office is visible.
Moving back downstairs, this is the kitchen area. To the right is the pantry. Down the hallway is a laundry room, powder and entry into the garage.
Last we have a panorama from the dinning room looking into the kitchen (to the left) and the living room and entry way. to the far left in the photo you can see the master bedroom door, and in the right corner is the office space.
Lets get caught up! Our last post was about some of the features on our Loveland Project. So much has happened since that post. The homeowners have their C.O. and have been moving in and getting settled. We will be back to get some photos to show off just how great it looks at a later time.
It’s funny how each project takes shape like the seasons. The beginning of the project is like Spring. There’s so much to look forward to. There are plans, visions and a lot of enthusiasm. As the project progresses you get to a point in building where there are subs everywhere and things are happening very quickly-much like being in the heat of the Summer. Once the subs have finished, there are finishes to look forward to, it takes shape like Fall-where golden leaves and kitchen sinks, bathtubs, flooring and wall colors bring about a renewed sense of excitement. The last season of building is the final finishes work and then stepping out of the project completly-Winter.
Just like the seasons in Colorado, sometimes we are in winter at one project and spring at another and isnt that just the beauty of it all? Of being a part of so much change and growth!
Currently, we are in Berthoud, CO and the season of building is Spring. Our foundation work is complete, we have framed the floors, walls, set trusses and are ready to start sheathing the roof and start siding. We are gearing up for summer, both figuratively (see earlier mention) and literally. We have another project in Fort Collins that is just about ready to start breaking ground.
It’s exciting to be doing what we are doing. To know that at the end of day, the homes we are building can withstand the seasons providing quality and comfort for its homeowners. We are excited and thankful that people continue to reach out to us and are interested in building a highly efficient passive home with us! Cheers to the seasons, may they keep on coming!
