Nothing adds a dramatic flair to a new home more than a vaulted ceiling. And the great room vault of this home, located along Eagle Bay Road, is that much more dramatic thanks to the exquisite finishing touches being provided by our skilled staff and sub-trades.
The soaring fireplace is being completed with Black Rundle natural stone—it truly is an outstanding piece of work being performed by Marcus Masonry of Blind Bay. Adding to the drama are the custom dark-stained poplar beams, which are being done by our own finisher, Chuck Beaton, along with local carpenter Mark Orchard. All of this will be complemented by the stained wood handrail that’s currently in production with our cabinet supplier, Renaissance Joinery and Millwork of Salmon Arm (who will also be installing the cabinets later this week). Together, the level of craftsmanship represented by these finishes is truly outstanding. We’re taking such care with this project that, together with our clients, we made a decision to reject the factory interior doors originally ordered due to high moisture content; new doors have subsequently been built and installed.
The first round of finishing trim is complete, with a second round scheduled for immediately after the final tile and luxury vinyl plank installs take place this week. As well, closet shelving and organizers have been site-measured and are in production.
Meanwhile, the exterior is being completed with HardiPlank siding, Black Rundle natural stone, 60 mil Driftwood Duradek, and 42” Quartz Grey square top aluminum handrail with glass panels. As well, the septic tank and field have recently been installed.
We’re currently working with our clients, who are currently located in Arizona, to coordinate the final stages of construction and arrive at an occupancy date that works with given Covid-19 complications, air travel restrictions, and homeowner needs.
