I really should take a picture of the view of the mouth of American Fork Canyon from the living room windows. It is beautiful. In the winter you can see a herd of Mountain Sheep across canyon road lingering on the golf course and the side hills.
We still have a little bit of work to do here on the foundation and we will be power washing the stone to bring our some of the vibrant colors that are still hiding. This is a natural thin stone that we call Apache. We mixed some smooth and tumbled Apache together this time as the stone continually changes as it is quarried.
I really like how the stone caps look on the front posts.
This is my new favorite picture. I may have to get permission to use it in all my advertising. (like I do any) Well, if I did any I would want to include this picture.
The detail on this bay really stands out on the front of the house.
As I get many requests across the country for color on our projects I thought I would let you all know the colors. Sherwin Williams Dovetail SW 7018, Pure White SW 7005
We worked on this beautiful home in Alpine this past winter. It has been to cold to finish the painting and it is a good thing since the homeowners (no first names to protect the innocent) needed all that time to decide on a color. :)
As you can see the time was worth it and they picked the perfect shade of grey for this house. Wow... It looks great guys.
Once again we decided to stucco the sides and rear and once we got the colors matched up the surfaces look great together. We carried some of the detail onto the side gables to tie together the different materials. Why stucco on the sides and back you are asking? about $12,000.00
I wish I had a before and after picture of this project. This is the completed product. I'll try to explain and I hope the Crump's are not offended. :) Under the caps on this rock water feature, which by the way has live fish, was installed a series of grey precast caps with grey mortar joints. That is the mortar on the wall that you see. (NOT our mess) We meshed and base coated over the concrete caps to prep a smooth finish of Tuscan Plaster. Ohhhh.. Now I feel better
You can see a little bit of the house in this picture. There is not any grey colors to be found.
This unique house is in Vineyard. It sits right on the east side of Utah Lake overlooking the lake from the rear balconies. If you ever wondered what it would look like to put galvanized siding on your home, just zoom in and take a peak.
We added some chains to the gutters. They are functional, but mostly they just look good. We used a thin natural stone called Apache with a 6' wainscot across the front.
This was really fun. This house has Vinyl Shake and Board & Batt, with cement board wraps on the posts & bays. What a great project, I think we will be doing more of this type of finish. Shake has been very popular lately and this is a way to get that at a price that fits your budget a little better and a finish that requires no painting.
We put a Natural Thin Stone on the front wainscoat and wood corbels in the gables to give it some great accents.
I really like the red door. I think it goes great with the gray colors of the house.
Close-up shows how natural this Vinyl looks. We used a composite trim on the corners and around the doors & windows. It makes it look all the better.
I love how they added a splash of color to the door and shutters. The stone is a natural thin stone (Apache Ledge), the stucco has a smooth texture with colors to accent the Vinyl shakes in the gables and the cement board & batt siding on the entry.
This house is even better once you go inside and see what a nice job they did. I will need to go get a picture of the fireplace and add to this post. Thank you West's, was great working with you.
We really had fun on this beautiful home in American Fork. The home is a great house with lots of finish details. What made this so much fun were the homeowners. They were such a pleasure to work with that it made us all realize why we liked construction. Thank you Tholstum's!
The whole house is a cement board straight lap shake, with some board & batt panel designs on the bays and upper gable ends. The shake are all individual pieces laid in as to not have any patterns formed. It turned out great! Our crew also did all the caulking and painting.
