We just wrapped up a productive peak homebuilding season in Fairfield and Westchester Counties. Among other projects, we finished a really interesting custom home in Wilton. And we’re slated to move into the colder months with a couple of notable renovation projects.
We wrapped up the Wilton project in late summer. The homeowners are in and loving their new home. This proved to be an exciting endeavor. The home was modern with exquisite detailing throughout the interior and exterior, and the lot was in a nice wooded, private location.
On the roster now are a full gut renovation in Litchfield County and a structural repair and renovation in Easton. The Litchfield County home is in Barkhamsted on a wooded 2-acre lot. This is another modern and required taking the entire interior down to the studs. When complete, this will essentially be a new home with only the foundation, basic frame, and utilities saved, which were all in good condition.
On the exterior of the Litchfield County home we removed the roof and installed a Grace roofing system. This advanced rubberized asphalt formulation enables a watertight bond, with the roof deck acting as a barrier for both water and ice. The roof finish will be either metal or traditional asphalt. The home has a 1,000-square-foot deck.
The interior will be rebuilt with intriguing lines and a variety of eye-catching features. Most notably, we are installing two new staircases, both of which will make a statement. In addition, the interior is getting spray foam insulation that will help seal the house and provide optimal energy efficiency. Other interior details will include built-in, pull-out storage units and the latest modern finishes and fixtures.
We’re also working on a traditional-style home renovation in Easton, CT. This project requires some major structural repair and reworking of existing interior space. It’s the type of project that gets to the core of Wright Building Company’s experience and value. When it comes to structural elements, it becomes a job for a true professional. This is why, although this is a smaller project for us, we’re proud to lend our expertise. We’re applying the same skills that we’ve honed on large custom homebuilding jobs throughout towns like Westport, Greenwich, and Darien.
The Easton home is an interesting project. Large portions of the frame have been ravaged by termites, compromising the integrity of the structure. We will be replacing multiple headers and framing as well as reworking and rebuilding some of the interior spaces. We estimate this to be about a three-month project.
One of the things I’ve really enjoyed over these past few months is seeing our Architect and industry friends and colleagues across Fairfield County. Judy and I have been out and about. I often think about how lucky we are to be part of such a wonderful homebuilding community. We’re looking forward to the next round of building jobs soon.
