Fall Updates

The weather is changing once again in the Sierras and Williams Construction is busy trying to get everything buttoned up for the eminent arrival of more snow.

The Lund home in Graeagle is all under roof with windows in and exterior stain complete which is a good place to be going into for the winter. This home is getting a lot of notice because of its unique hand-hewn timber appearance (see the newest photos of the exterior here). Many people are stopping on the road to ask questions about it. The exterior masonry will be completed in the next few days and Dennis and Sheila Lund have picked out all their fixtures and tile so we are ready to go full steam ahead. This will be the first house we have done with absolutely no drywall in it anywhere. All of the walls and ceilings are to be wood. We hope to have Dennis and Sheila enjoying their new home by the end of the year.

The Bolt residence in Grizzly Ranch is framed and the roof sheathing is going on. We managed to get the majority of the roof paper installed just as the first snowflakes started to fall last Thursday. This will make the winter much more comfortable and efficient for us on this project.  This project is definitely engineered to last and we are sure that it will take much more than the 4.7 earthquake we had last week to move this stout little structure. We are scheduled to receive a container shipment of teak carvings and windows that go in on the building on November 10th.  We have updated photos of the Bolt home now on our website, you can see them here. The photos to the right show the kitchen island in transit from Indonesia, and below the 100 year old barn timbers for the Bolt home that recently arrived.

We also have some small jobs that we are scrambling to complete. We took on some work for the Old Greenwood Townhomes Association in Truckee to redo all of their entertainment centers, and we have a few repair jobs going in Serene Lakes (D0nner Summit) as well which are moving right along.

Happy fall from the crew at Williams Construction –  and as always if you need any construction work done, call us for an estimate.
