Mid-Atlantic Home Improvement Presents Project Of The Decade
Mid-Atlantic Home Improvement Presents Project Of The Decade: Home Addition & Historic Restoration in Manakin-Sabot VA 23238
The project was initiated in 2015 when a customer whom the company worked with before has reached out looking for a contractor to handle their planned home expansion in Goochland County, Virginia. "This was the beginning of a two year long collaboration, and one of the most rewarding and largest projects we've worked on this decade", said Doug Gentry, the company owner and a Virginia native.
The mansion was built in 1850s, initially a plantation house and now a private residence, and is placed on the National Register Of Historic Places. The work needed to be meticulous, the additions historically accurate and in line with the overall architecture and style.
This was a 6500 sq ft house remodel that included two additions totaling 15000 sq ft.: 2 master bedrooms and bathrooms, 2 master/California closets, a kitchen, and a family room were added, amongst many other improvements. This addition included 12 ft ceilings and 22 ft towers, double 2×6 walls, with an 800 amp service panel in a basement.
The existing structure was gutted as part of the improvement and restoration. All the ceilings were stripped, new insulation added, and new doors, many of them mahogany, were installed. The project also involved new energy efficient windows installation, hard pine floor restoration,new trim installation and remodel of all the existing bathrooms.
On the exterior, the company installed roofing and seamless gutters, did stucco finish, added a deck/patio, sunroom, walkway/driveway, generator shed and a custom solarium.
The crew included the 6-8 in house carpenters but we also involved specialists across many fields: roofers, architects, engineers, painters, masonry and brick specialists, electricians, hvac technicians, plumbers, drywallers, and an excavation team.
The project went along without a hitch and was completed in early 2018. "Although challenging at times, this was one of the most rewarding projects we've completed this decade", said Mr. Gentry about the mansion remodel.
