Since our last update lots of progress has been made on Triad Group's historical renovation project in Seminole Park.  The plumbing, electric, HVAC, and low voltage is completely installed as is all of the insulation.  The walls have newly finished drywall and trim is now being installed.  The trim was carefully selected by the owners to replicate the style of the period when the home was originally built.  The home will feature crown molding, 9" baseboards, 6" door casing, jamb and casing of all windows, solid core raised panel doors and bead board on select ceilings.  To maximize the architectural impact of trim such as this it is important that it be finished properly.  Triad Group will apply a procedure of priming, sanding, and finish coating that will result in a furniture finish.

 Newly Finished Walls Waiting for Trim

We have also been working on the outside of the structure over the past month.  Part of the job included new stucco on the entire outside of the home.

 Preparing For New Stucco

The new stucco made a dramatic difference to the outside of the home.  After months of working on the infrastructure of the building to maximize the homes functionality and to modernize it, you can now start to see the finished product and how much real progress has been made on this very challenging project.

New Stucco

At this point the stucco is curing, once the proper PH is attained the structure will be ready for paint.  Next time we will have pictures of interior trim in place and painting being done.  When the exterior painting is complete we will proceed to finish the roof, put the decks in place and landscape.  We will keep you updated with photos as we progress.
