We are very happy to receive the following photographs from clients showing the construction of the Aspen house plan using standard 2x6 framing and a conform block basement foundation. Here is what they had to say about their building process and a few changes they've made along the way:

"We are in the process of construction of the Aspen design on our beautiful lake property. These are some pictures taken through Sept 8th. The framing should be complete early next week so windows can be ordered. We expect full enclosure with siding, shingles, windows and doors before the first snowfall. Our building contractor changed the I beam direction as shown in the interior photos. The basement is 6 foot ceiling and set for furnace, water, other utility and storage. The master suite has a slider instead of window and door. The window on the master wall is narrowed for placement of furniture. We also added an exterior door (like the Kodiak) onto the utility room for a "mud entrance". The fire stove in the great room has been changed to a see through wood burning fireplace between the great room and the master suite. We will update you with new photos when exterior has been completed.

Thank you for a wonderful design." - Mr. & Mrs. R

Hurrican season comes around every year. Here are some steps homeowners can take to weatherproof their homes that won’t break the bank.

 Kiplinger’s Personal Finance offers six pieces of essential hurricane-preparation advice, including: 

  • Brace your garage door to prevent more-extensive damage.Will he or won’t he? With Hurricane Earl threatening the nation’s Eastern Seaboard this Labor Day, there are steps homeowners can take to weatherproof their homes that won’t break the bank. Kiplinger’s Personal Finance offers six pieces of essential hurricane-preparation advice, including:
    • Brace your garage door to prevent more-extensive damage. “A lot of people believe that the roof is the most vulnerable part of the house,” says Ray Stone, vice-president of catastrophe operations for Travelers Insurance. “But it’s not. It’s the garage door.” Most garage doors are not reinforced, and when the wind gets into the garage, it creates a positive push at the same time that the wind swirling above the structure creates a negative pull. That push-pull combination can cause the roof to fly off. See the National Weather Service information sheet to learn about kits that you can buy at home-improvement stores to brace your garage doors.
    • Secure your windows and doors. Broken windows can let in wind and rain, and they can also increase the pressure under the roof. Storm shutters provide the best protection, but boarding up windows when a storm is on the way can help, too. Don’t bother taping your windows, though. “Putting masking tape on the windows literally does nothing,” says Stone. Make sure doors have several locking mechanisms so they don’t fly open; deadbolts are best. And it’s important to secure windows and doors at all sides of the home -- not just the one facing the body of water where hurricanes could form -- because hurricanes can swirl in any direction. See the Institute for Business & Home Safety’s for details about how to make your windows and doors more secure.
    • Take inventory. “The last thing you want to be doing after you’ve been affected by a hurricane is to try to remember everything you had in the house,” says Stone. “Having an inventory will make the process of getting through the claim and getting back to normal so much easier.” The Insurance Information Institute’s is a great place to get started. Keep the inventory in a safe place away from your home.
