You may have noticed that we are working at the Trader Joe’s complex in Templeton again. If not, you will soon see the opening of J&R Custom Meats and Sausage next to that great fish restaurant and store, Pier 46. We are working inside setting new electrical, plumbing and polishing up the floors so we can have fish and meats in the same building, just like the good old days!


We are working in association with a local timber framing contractor on this framing job. Notice the beautiful mortise and tenon work they are crafting.


Well we are just about done here…………….For a while at least. The owner of this fabulous site is doing the finish work on these homes. The doors he has built are beautiful. The drywall is hung, taped and textured, the tile floating for the showers will start Monday, and we should have a color coat on the buildings in a week. As soon as we have the final color we can finish the roofing, and install the Photovoltaic panels. This is truly a gem, not oversized and it has a 120 degree view of the coast on clear days.


Late in 2009 we completed this Gothic inspired guest home. After living in the space, the owners decided to simply add onto this structure in lieu of building a whole second home. We have started the framing and plan to have the windows installed in the next few weeks.
