Excavating so that we can start building the custom home in Lincoln Park Chicago. »

December 7, 2016

Since the houses are so close in Chicago, we had a settlement surveyor come out to set up control points on the neighbors house.  These control points will be measured again after the foundation has been back filled to show that there was no settlement of the buildings next to the construction site.  We then we used steel beams to shore the banks.  The shoring (steel beams) supports the dirt so that it doesn’t collapse into the newly excavated foundation.  Once the shoring has been installed, the excavation can be done without having to worry about the banks collapsing.

Deconstruction in Lincoln Park Chicago »

November 18, 2016

The owners have decided to have their home deconstructed instead of demolished.  Deconstruction is the process of taking down the house in the reverse order of how it was built and then donating the building materials to charities like Habitat for Humanity.  Deconstruction is done by hand instead of using heavy equipment to preserve the materials.  The cost is a higher than having the house demolished, but there are tax deductions for the donations that help offset the higher costs.
