4/01 This shot shows the hydronically heated driveway tubes in place and ready to be covered. Underneath the tubing is bubble wrap insulation
that helps direct the heat genetated from the tubes upward. All of the tubes are 3/4 inch hepex Wirsbo (TM) tubing. They are arranged with a
9 inch spacing for rapid and even snow melt. The boiler used to heat the driveway also heats the domestic hot water giving the owners truly
endless potable hot water.
4/01 This is the manifold that directs the glycol/water mixture throughout the tubing lines.
Base color has been applied and the staining is about to begin. All of the head and sill blocks have been installed.
The interior insulation is complete and the sheetrock will begin the second week of Dec. 2004. After the scaffolding
is removed from the exterior, the old driveway will be removed and replaced with a new heated driveway.

This is the most recent shot of the front. The roofline is starting to take shape. After finally getting all of the beams
to the third floor (with the help of a crane), this phase should come together quite quickly. Several of the roof beams were
doubled up laminate beams over 36 feet long. The dormers on the third floor can be seen here. 7/1/04
This shot shows the crane helping the crew position the beams on the top level. All of the beams will be moved and positioned by hand
once they are all lifted to the third floor. 6/28/04

This property was originally a duplex. It was built in 1977. Most of the homes in the area are
classic two-story and bungalow style homes. The project will consist of converting the duplex into
a single family dwelling. The entry will be enlarged to create a grand entry and staircase. The exterior
brick (that remains) will be covered with textured/colored stucco reminiscent of French Country homes. The living room and
formal dining areas will be on the front of the home with french doors opening to outdoor patios. The large
gourmet kitchen will flow into a two-story family room. The home will have second and third story levels.
The master suite along with two additional bedrooms and a bath will be on the second level. Two additional
bedrooms and a bath will be on the third level. The basement addition will have a bathroom and a large game
room. All inquiries can be directed to Kim Crellin at (801) 557-1002.
