New Home Build Construction Process Shots.
Progress report – Ocean front property in Milford, CT is getting dressed! The walls are now sheathed in a base layer of weather proofing, with cedar composite shingles beginning to be positioned for the many roof lines.
We build homes to last a lifetime. With that said, the flashing between the seams of the roof and wall are an extremely important bit of detail work. In our opinion, this kind of detail is a key indicator of the difference between “high end” construction, and maybe just over priced construction. Some builders rush through or skip some of this work or they use inferior metals. Buildings simply will not age well, especially on the coast, if your flashing isn’t copper, and done to perfection.
In our photo collection, notice the copper door pan installation, intended for second story French Doors overlooking the view of Long Island Sound. With the walls and flashing in place, the roofing shingles can be placed into position.
In the last feature on this project, we had just about completed the framing. see the way a new home is built from the ground up.
Stay tuned for more imagery as the job progresses further.
