Kowalsky Construction Update 12/5-12/9

The framing of the partitions of the Kowalsky Addition's first floor are finished and the second floor deck is underway; by the end of the week (Friday, 12/9), the second floor walls will be put up.

The Kowalsky Annex's interior walls are about 50% completed on the first floor, and the new ridge support is now in place in the roof. The interior framing will continue there through 12/9 as well.

In the meantime, the mason will be working on the firewall between the Kowalsky Addition and the main house. 

At this time, parking behind Kowalsky House and in the driveway between Kowalsky & Wolf Kahn Studios is prohibited, as is foot traffic through the construction zone.

Kowalsky Construction Update 11/28-12/2

This past week the construction crew finished up the new water/sprinkler services to Mason House and Kowalsky House and got the first deck onto the Kowalsky Addition.

The historic windows and doors have been taken out of the Kowalsky Annex and sent off for restoration, and the first floor has been structurally restored.

On Monday, 11/28, the crew will be working on the firewall between the main house and the Addition; the framing of the Addition first floor will run through the week, and the Annex interior framing will continue.

Parking behind Kowalsky House and in the driveway between Kowalsky & Wolf Kahn Studios remains prohibited, as is foot traffic through the construction zone.

Kowalsky Construction Update 11/21-11/25

Next week, the crew will continue framing the deck of the Kowalsky Addition, while the masons get started on the firewall that separates the Addition from the main house.

The Kowalsky Annex floor rehab is nearly complete, and the crew is making temporary storm panels for the windows so work can continue indoors as the temperatures begin to drop.

There will be a crane onsite Monday, 11/21, to slide in the new ridge beam for the Annex roof;  the crew will be framing the interior of the Annex later in the week.
 
The site work (digging, etc.)—including the new water services to Mason and Kowalsky— is nearly completed and will be tidied up next week.

At this time, parking behind Kowalsky House and in the driveway between Kowalsky & Wolf Kahn Studios is prohibited, as is foot traffic through the construction zone.
