2015 Early Summer Update

We have been busy since we last updated our projects report including the small but intricate craftsman bungalow that we designed and built for Michael and Susan Erne. They will enjoy using this cabin for many years.

IMGP0036The house sits on a small lot in Whitehawk Ranch Golf Community. The concept was to design a unique yet small one story home on a corner lot, with three bedrooms and three and half bathrooms. We wanted to create the traditional bungalow look but not stray too far from the woodsy ranch mountain home that all the other surrounding houses have, so we used materials and finishes that blend well into the community surroundings.

This little home is just the perfect size, has all of the amenities and does not overwhelm the corner lot it sits on or the surrounding neighborhood. We are proud of this one, more importantly, the Erne’s like it too.

Look for us in the July 2013 issue of the prestigious Mountain Living Magazine. There is an 8 page article of the Bolt house in Grizzly Ranch and this article shows a few of the key elements. We are proud to be in it! (See the full article below)

New photos

Happy September! With thunderstorms, lighting and heavy rain over the past few days – it feels like fall might be upon us. The aspens haven’t started turning yellow yet – so that’s a sure sign that we still have some warm summer days left – we hope!

We’ve updated the Weil Home photos on our website – and have added some new pictures of their beautiful interior designed by Lowrance Interiors.  The new photos can be found here: http://williamsconstructionca.com/projects/weil-home/

The Weil home is located in Grizzly Ranch, just outside of Portola, California, in beautiful Plumas County.

 

Summer Update

We’re happy to report that it’s been a busy summer in beautiful Plumas County for Williams Construction.

The Cavin home was recently signed off by the county, and the Cavin’s have been slowly moving into their beautiful new mountain home located in Whitehawk Ranch. We’re almost done with the project, and will be done once we have installed a new patio with a custom fire pit. Stay tuned for the final construction photos which will be posted soon!

We are well underway with the Lund Cabin in Graeagle, a  hand-hewn timber home. We are currently framing the dormers and getting ready to do the porches this week. This is a really unique little cabin and the Hearthstone Home pre-cut kit has come together just as it’s supposed to. We’re having fun with this project and hope that it leads to further timber homes in the future. Check out the first photos of this project on our Current Projects page.

Williams Construction has also begun a new project for the Bolt’s at Grizzly Ranch Golf Course. This new home construction

is a design modeled after the chalets seen in the Polish ski village of Zakopane which have a Norwegian influence. The design for this unique custom home came from the world famous Pearson Design Group in Montana, and features German windows, reclaimed barn wood and even patio material from old roads in Indonesia. Make sure to read more under our Current Projects page and stay tuned for some photos!

We’re thankful for all of the work this summer! And even though it’s been a busy one, we’ve managed to get out and enjoy the warm weather, abundant wildflowers and warm lakes. Wishing you a wonderful August! ~ The Williams Crew

Williams Construction Update for March

Currently we have two jobs under construction, and we are happy for the work. Our 6 man crew, run by our son Ted, is building a 3,600 square foot craftsman style home at the Whitehawk Range Golf Resort. We have been working on it through the winter and we were lucky enough to get the roof done before the big storm hit us the last week of February. We are now inside and John and Debbie Cavin seem excited about their new place.

The second job we started is a 1,400 square foot hand-hewn square timber log home with a detached 2 car garage in Graeagle. We were able to clear the lot while the weather was so perfect for three weeks in February and then after some big weather we were unable to do more. Dennis and Sheila Lund are looking forward to getting started as soon as the snow melts off their lot on their new cabin in the mountains.

These two projects and a few small repair jobs will keep us going through part of the summer and we are hoping to get awarded another contract that we are currently bidding for in Gold Mountain. Wish us luck!!!

Ice Lakes Lodge

Building Ice Lakes Lodge was a unique endeavor. It took us 13 months to build the project from breaking ground to our grand opening day. This was about half the time it took to procure the funding for the project. Getting the construction loan was the hardest part.

With the loan in hand from Citizens Bank of Nevada City and the plans from MWA Architects, we started in the fall and went as fast as we could to race to the roof. The lodge is a simple chalet style structure but with huge structural iron and giant glue lam beam content it was a quite a task. With a 20-man crew we were able to sheath the roof by November 1st and get out of the snow. We spent the next 10 months completing the 26 room lodge, bar and restaurant on what was basically a shoe-string budget and somehow made it to the end. All in all this was a fun job.
