Down to the wire. Pre-dawn will be installing hardware and some sliding glass doors.
Perhaps I will have the energy to say more about this after it is all over. Buenos Noches.


Fire Island/Builder’s Show: Day 6

Finish out work continues apace. Tomorrow is our last full day to get things tied up. Wish us luck.


Fire Island Builder’s Show: Day 5

Posted on February 1, 2014

Typically we take 2-3 months to button up and finish out one of our modular houses. We are doing this in 5 days. Kudos to all of the crews working on the house. We have siding going up, decking going in, electrical fixtures being installed, sheetrock being patched, taped and floated, windows being installed and railing going up. Everyone is walking over/around each other. Awesome to see. Weekend should be intense.


Fire Island Builder’s Show: Day 4

Posted on January 31, 2014

Good, full productive day today.  We had some kind of freaky clash of storm fronts that created 35 mph winds, making crane work tricky.  At one point, I looked up and it appeared we were in the eye of a hurricane, which was accompanied by the requisite stillness.  This happened just as they were about to crane set the first of the upper portions of the “Country House” next door.  Needless to say, that was put on hold for a couple hours.

All panels were set, and work proceeded on the ground floor decks, and Nichiha siding.  Definitley have a little lost time to make up for, but the guys made great progress.  Was really nice to finally walk through the space as a whole.  In the past with mods, we have had complete sections, so the complete building was easy to put together in your head.  Because we had panelized sections, that was a bit trickier.  Glad to say the result has exceeded my expectations.  Really excited to watch the finish out progress over the next couple of days.


Fire Island/Builder’s Show: Day 3

Day three was very productive.  All of the modular boxes were set, and just the panelizing portion of the building remains. No major setbacks, aside from our crew foreman shooting himself through the foot with a nail gun.  Shaping up, but still a long way to go before the show.


Fire Island/Builder’s Show: Day 2

Posted on January 29, 2014

So sometimes, no often, the construction business can be frustrating.  When you are relying on (40,000 lb) buildings getting shipped through snow, flat tires and blown axles…well, sometimes it just doesn’t arrive on time.  On top of that we were encumbered by some unexpected bureaucratic delays. Long day waiting, but we did get to see some progress on the other house that Cutting Edge is putting up at the show.  So, for the sake putting some crumbs out there….


Fire Island/Builder’s Show: Day 1

Posted on January 28, 2014

Landed in Las Vegas today to get ready to assemble the Fire Island house for the NAHB Builder’s Show which starts next week:

http://buildersshow.com/Home/

The building is arriving in a couple of different loads, and will be assembled over the next 5-6 days.  Unlike the more conventional modular construction ma has done to date, the Fire Island house is what Isaac Lassiter, with Cutting Edge homes refers to as his Modular 2.0.  This approach uses a modular box/panelized hybrid in order to maximize the capabilities of factory built construction.

We start preparing the site in the morning, so will post more tomorrow.  Below are some photos from our site visit during construction in the factory, and as the building was getting ready for its road trip.


Marfa finish-out continues

Posted on January 15, 2013

Progress continues on the finish out of the Marfa house.  Overhangs being built, sliding patio doors installed, interior patchwork, and

the connections/installation of the mechanical/electrical/plumbing has begun.


ma-rfa set complete!

Posted on November 14, 2012

After a week in beautiful Marfa TX, we have delivered, set, leveled and secured to the foundation, the Shafer residence.  The novelty of seeing 50,000 pound buildings moved around with trucks, lifts, jacks and soap (yes, Ivory soap)  just never seems to wear off.
