Iroquois Project Update and Photos
The Iroquois project has progressed through the demolition stage. These pictures illustrate the start of demolition. All plaster board, drywall, flooring, partition walls, insulation, wiring, plumbing, fixtures, doors, trim, etc. are being removed, down to the bare studs. This is the most efficient way to correct the deficiencies of the old structure and design. Drawings have been completed and submitted for permit approval to the City. We will upload the before and after drawings and floor plans in the next few days.
This is a very complex redesign as we attempt to open up the space, deal with structural changes and inadequacies, dramatically improve the efficiency of the house, and fill the house with natural light. In the design process it’s a bit like a jig saw puzzle – every element affects another. For example, a structural post or beam affects the ability to distribute ductwork. Basement duct distribution and beams can affect ceiling heights in key locations, limiting headroom for egress. When we submit our drawings online we’ll do our best to explain the rationale behind the layout.
