It Doesn’t Require A Big Building for The Dream to Be Big

Another Big Dream in A Small Package

My Timber Creek Construction web site is ten years old and just like a building, it needs some updating and remodeling.

Earlier this week I met with Stacey and Shaunna from Custom Internet Services to discuss ideas about the project. One of the things that I’m looking to accomplish is an improved connection between that site and this one. I used to regularly write project overviews and post pictures. I need to get back to doing this again.

As we looked through the projects it struck me that the project summaries are a good fit for “Weekly Solutions” and helping customers build their dreams. So, here is a project summary of a dream project for Webber’s from 2005.

This project was done both as a functional building for storing garden equipment and the potting of plants as well as a decorative building to resemble a rustic cabin for landscaping. The 12′ x 16′ wood framed structure is built on a 4″ thick steel reinforced concrete slab that was formed and poured by Arthur Contreras with the concrete purchased from Daniels Rock and Ready Mix. There is a 6′ x 16′ porch along the east side of the building with a cedar floor. Electrical service was run underground by Finn’s Electric to provide electricity to the building. The 4×8 sheets of wood grained James-Hardie fiber cement siding with vertical grooves was installed directly to the studs.

Roof construction consists of engineered wood trusses on the building and 2×6 rafters on the porch, wood stringers over rafters, covered with galvanized, 29-gauge, corrugated Strongbarn tin. Uninsulated 6′ x 6′-6″ overhead door was supplied and installed in the back of the building by Keith Hostetter. Front entry door was job built from 1″ rough cedar to resemble an old cabin door.

Building has two 24″ x 36″ vinyl single hung windows, one in south end and one on west side, to let in natural light. Painting of exterior siding was done by the customer. This project in 2005 was a little over $10,000.00.

I plan to share more current projects as well as archived ones in this up coming year as well as connecting the two web sites to make it easier to access the content across both sites.

I will keep you updated on the Timber Creek Construction web site remodel.
