West Asheville Residence – Construction Progress 9/30/22

West Asheville Residence – Construction Progress 9/30/22

Here’s progress on one of my West Asheville Projects. I did this one as a “spec” house for this lot for a builder on this site a few years ago. (I no longer do spec/“built for sale” houses). The builder had the rough design, I took it & developed it to completion. It was eventually purchased as a package… It changed 3-4 times since the original design. Now 3 levels + sub-bsmt. I have become friends with the owner(s), who are handling the General Contracting themselves. Electrical is coming very soon. If you don’t like beams, especially in these “mountain modern” designs… don’t hire me. I ain’t scared of big beams.

Another West Asheville “Mountain Modern” House by BEARNEST – Construction Progress 2/20/22

This project started as a “spec house” for a builder in 2017. Several rounds of changes have happened since then, & the property has changed hands a couple times, being ‘on hold’ for a while. A new owner is now building it. The actual house being built (drawings shown) is slightly different than the 3D Model shown here, which was the “Finals 1” Version. “Finals 3” is being built. I’ve also become friends with the new owner, so I hope to experience & enjoy this one in person in the future. CAD/BIM + Design Services by Billy Earnest bearnest.co

Renovation Project Underway @BEARNEST

Let’s call this one “Superdeck”! We are in early design stages of this complete exterior renovation. Phase I is the deck & outdoor living space… next will be the overall exterior updating, to follow the new look. The existing red brick will be eventually painted or covered in stucco…maybe some different sidings. With different colors & textures, this 90’s home will have a whole new look. It’s quite a property. The view from the bathtub in that upstairs window is SPECTACULAR!

Residential Project Underway @BEARNEST

I’m working on this current project, making some roof changes. It’s working now, but I still don’t think we’re there yet… but hopefully close.

“Figure it out” is what I do. I know a lot about roofs, all kinds of roofs. My desk was known as “Team Re-Roof” at a former job. We did all kinds of roof renovations, including putting new sloping metal roofs over old flat roof buildings.

Renovation Project Underway @BEARNEST

When doing a major Renovation project, the first thing you need is good “As-Built” drawings & model. Document all the existing conditions first. This is phase I of several on this project. Partial As-Builts + New Deck Design, Covered w/Fireplace, etc. As we design the new deck & roof, we are thinking about Phase II which will be a new look for the entire house, matching what we do with the new deck & roof. Then, the client will probably redo the entire pool deck, & terraces, all to match our new work. Quite a project. I will add existing terrain to the model soon, along with more detail & ArchiCAD eye candy to the house as we start working on the other sides. This is only the beginning. We are working out new deck design now. I will post progress as we go. I will hang out of a helicopter if needed, to measure your house. Just another day at the office.
