Additions

PRIDE Home Improvement has done many, many additions over the years and here are some great highlights of this work.

Olson Rd 2 Project

This is my second project for these customers. The addition itself is not very big but it was added to an existing out building that we re-shingled because a poor job was done about 5 years ago. We poured a new cement floor for the complete building. Hand framed rafters, real fir doors, local cedar siding, brackets and posts and fascia.
The inside was finished to become the showroom for "Harris House Antique Lighting” . If you want to smile every time you turn on a light, give them a try. I did.

New Sunroom Project

The shed style roof had to be changed to a Gable style. We were able to re use some of the existing windows, others are new. New roof was "Hand Framed" with sloped ceiling and 4 skylights.New floor has ceramic tile and in floor heating.
The existing house was 2 inches out of level and created some challenges as a result.The addition looks like part of the original house and is a welcome improvement to the home.

1930’s House Project

Another fine example of long lasting, durable, and interesting house construction. A number of years ago we upgraded the windows, built a back deck and rebuilt the front deck.
An engineer was was required for seismic and increased load for new floor of extended dormer.
We had to install two 3 ply LVL beams in the basement and of course heat runs were in the way. The pads had to be upgraded for the existing back deck and new deck above. The existing rafters were 2x4 at 32 in OC spanning about 14 ft.....the good old days.
New roof was all hand framed and minimum head room almost not met. Looks good on paper.The new dormer (with new bath room, including tiled shower) and back deck make a great improvement to this Grand Old House.The Hardi-shingles are very hard to tell apart from the original cedar shingles.
