Second Floor Addition in Beverly

Our project of adding a second floor to a Beverly ranch is starting to take form. The walls for the exterior have been fully framed and the outside fo them has been covered in plywood, which then had Tyvek wrap put on the outside. The vinyl siding for the second floor has been special ordered to match the existing siding on the house and will be delivered after the long weekend. In between the new siding and the Tyvek wrap there will be a layer of insulation. This will be in addition to the normal insulation on the inside of the walls and will make the home more energy efficient.
Inside, the framers has finished the stairway to the new second floor and the walls which separate the rooms have all been framed. Outside of the new master suite, the home owners decided to have a balcony put on the house over looking their pool. The framers used Azek board for the frame of it and new TimerTech material for the decking. This is a new material made to look like natural wood with realistic colors and wood grain, but unlike real wood it is resistant to mold and rot.
The electricians have upgraded the homes electric service to account for the new energy usage. They have started running wiring to the new rooms and tied it in with the homes electric panel. With two new bedrooms and a new bathroom to be done they have their work ahead of them, but are hoping to be done after the long weekend. This will allow the plumbers to come in and run the piping to the new bathroom early next week.
