Site Preparation and Foundation Installation

The initial phase of the conventional house addition involved preparing and installing the foundation. Site preparation included removing a metal fence, cutting back a concrete pool patio, and clearing the driveway pavement. Once the work area was cleared, we marked the excavation site.

The site work crew, responsible for site preparation and foundation work, commenced the excavation. During the excavation process, they encountered a piece of ledge in the rear corner of the existing foundation, posing a challenge to the new foundation’s footing. To address this issue, the site crew utilized a breaker attachment on an excavator to carefully remove the ledge, creating space for the new foundation footing. After removing the ledge and excavating the remaining dirt section, the crew set up the forms for the footings and poured them on the same day.

Following approval of the footings by the Stoughton Building Inspector, the crew initiated the formwork. The foundation was designed as a 32×25 foot crawl space, as the homeowners chose this option due to the significant ledge presence in the vicinity over a full basement. Subsequently, after installing the rebar and setting up the forms, the crew poured the foundation walls. Once the foundation received approval, we moved on to the framing stage of the project.

Framing 2-Story Home Addition

After receiving approval for the foundation, our framing crew began installing lally columns, sill plates, first-floor joists, and sub-flooring. Subsequently, we initiated the construction of walls to fulfill the homeowners’ request to maximize ceiling height in the new addition. Addressing constraints like the existing home’s ceiling height, we meticulously ensured the feasibility of our modifications.

After installing first-floor walls, we laid down floor joists for the second floor. These homeowners wanted to maximize the ceiling height of the new addition. Due to some constraints, such as the ceiling height of the existing home, we had to ensure our modification would work. We installed nine-foot ceilings, allowing just enough room on the second floor to access the existing house.

This phase of the project went quickly, and although it was the middle of winter and the progress was weather permitting, our framing crew was able to get it built with wall sheathing installed at the 3-week mark!

Installation of Roofing and Siding, Windows, and Doors

For the next phase of this conventional house addition, the focus shifted to making the exterior “weather-tight.” Our certified installers initiated the installation of roofing, siding, windows, doors, and gutters. The homeowners sought affordable, durable products with reliable warranties that fit their budget and ensure long-term quality. After exploring various materials, they selected Certainteed Landmark Pro roofing, Mastic Solar Defense vinyl siding, United Windows, and ThermaTru entry doors.

Among roofing manufacturers, CertainTeed shingles excel due to their 50-year SureStart Plus warranty. Mastic’s Ovation presents vinyl siding with SolarDefense Reflective Technology, ensuring no fade and no distortion guarantees. ThermaTru offers a variety of exterior door styles and options to enhance curb appeal. Lastly, the factory paint by REEB Millwork and Door Solutions adds a flawless finishing touch to the project.
