High up in MacArthur Heights, overlooking Copper Island and the Shuswap Lake, is this stunning project which we’re now moving into the finishing stages. Needless to say, the views from this West Coast home will be absolutely jaw-dropping for our clients.
Outside, the 24-gauge standing seam metal roof with snow stops (critical in our part of the province) is now complete. As you can see from the photo below, the siding and trims are underway. HardiePlank horizontal lap siding in Timber Bark will be completed with SmartSide Trim at the corners and windows and SmartSide panels on select areas. The front posts and beams, along with the upper deck post and beam, will be clad in stained cedar. Aluminum soffiting is now complete under the lower deck, with upgraded Lux Fir metal soffit underway on upper deck. The upper and lower and decks are both finished in concrete, which has been placed and finished.
Inside, drywall taping has been wrapped up. Commercial dehumidifiers and furnace heat are operating to reduce drywall mud moisture and improve drywall shrinking and cracking. Napoleon LHD45NSB Linear Direct Vent Zero Clearance fireplaces have been installed. Closet finishing and interior door installation will soon be underway. The interior staircase has been measured and materials ordered. Painting, cabinet installation, and flooring are all either started or will start prior to the end of November.
The entire project is coming along beautifully, thanks in large part to our clients from the Lower Mainland – they have been fantastic to work with and are currently renting in the Shuswap awaiting their February delivery. We are doing our best to accelerate the schedule since the three of them are curently living in tight quarters!
