Another fun project draws to a close.

This, was one of those projects you don’t want to see end. The project itself was complex, but the customers were very cool to deal with. It is great when the customer gives you some leeway and goes with the flow. The end result is a very cool traditional looking home, with a slightly modern twist. The house to start with was good and solid, but all the systems needed modernizing. The whole house was re wired and modified for modern fittings like Air conditioning and proper grounding. Pressure water system was added and all new plumbing. The newly created second bathroom even has a jacuzzi tub. But the big challenge was putting in a pool. We build pools all the time, but in this case there was no yard to speak of, so we put it on the roof, along with raised walls and a cool bar. Inside the house everything was refreshed or renewed even antique screen doors were repaired and made to match.

A structural engineer was brought in and he provided a report on the way the rebar needed to be laid out and the concrete poured

The end result is an awesome rooftop pool and bar area, the bar will have a hardwood pergola shortly.

Meanwhile the completely revamped interior was done in very traditional talavera. It requires a certain skill to lay talavera, as each tile is handmade and they vary in thickness and also in width, so making it all seem level and flat takes a lot of work. Even then it is never perfectly flat. Even the bathroom was given a traditional look.20150625_094917

Antique screen doors needed serious help too, so they were rebuilt.
