Construction Update: 7 New Homes Move Forward

by on October 15, 2010 » Add more comments.

I thought this Friday afternoon would be a good time to give an update on the construction progress of 7 new homes in South Main. I’ll start with the projects at the earliest stage and progress to those nearing completion. Four of these homes are located on River Park Road; it’s very exciting for us to see this street quickly taking shape!

1. Sundance Sheepskin and Leather Mixed-Use Building

Two new homes just broke ground on River Park Road. The first, located at 1111 River Park Road is a South Main Building Company mixed-use building that will be home, on the first floor, to Sundance Sheepskin and Leather, and on the second to the wonderful Anderson/Johnson Family (I wrote in August about my mushroom foraging adventure with Scott). Here’s a shot of the excavation taken yesterday as well as the front elevation of this beautiful design.

2. Four Bed Victorian at 1004 River Park Road

The second home which recently broke ground is located at 1004 River Park Road and will be a beautiful 4 bedroom home.

3. Hoffman Home at 1000 River Park Road

I wrote recently about the 3 bedroom, 1,500 square foot Hoffman Home at South Main Building Company is constructing at 1000 River Park Road. Phil Urban and his crew are framing the home; the 2nd story walls are going up as I write. As you can see in the photo at left, this home is employing the same Structural Insulated Sheathing wall system that was used at 800 South Main Street.

4. Herzer Rowhouse, 1014 River Park Road

You might also recall the article I wrote about the California Craftsman-inspired rowhouse South Main Building Company is constructing for the Herzers next door to Eddyline Brewpub. Brad Pranger is nearing completion of the river rock chimney, the highly efficient Sierra Pacific windows are in, and the mechanical, electric and plumbing are nearing completion. The bay window already gives this home lots of character.

5. The Puckett Home, 905 South Main Street

Another recent article featured the Puckett family and their new home. Their exterior is taking shape nicely, with the color scheme emerging and the porches under construction. Drywall was delivered yesterday.

6. Courtyard Home, 1002 Swift Circle

Construction of this home is being phased so that the apartment above the garage is now complete while the remainder of the home is still under construction. Much of the exterior detail is complete, however, with more custom tile from Kris Selby going up in the last couple days. The railing is a fun detail; it was built from reclaimed chairlift cable from Breckenridge mountain. The stairs up to the garage apartment feature a zinc stair runner with copper fasteners.

7. The Baird Home, 800 South Main Street

Finally, Jeff and Gwen Baird’s custom home at 800 South Main Street is virtually complete on the exterior. Inside it’s down to painting, fixtures, tile and other finish items. The home welcomes people beautifully to South Main as one of the very first homes encountered upon driving into the neighborhood.
