Smith Home - Cynthiana, KY

The first picture is Jason and Jessica Smith (with their little one) on a bulldozer ready to break ground on their wonderful new home outside Cynthiana. They were both very actively involved in the construction process even though they went with our CMA program rather than UBuildIt. They did a great job and were a really fun couple to work with!

I hope you enjoy seeing this beautiful, energy efficient and functional new home. Please read on... as all of us have put in a lot of hard work and want to show it off to you!

Mitchell Home – Richmond, KY

Mitchell Home - Richmond, KY

Larry and Donna Mitchell first contacted us about 4 years ago when Larry was making trips back and forth to Iraq as a consultant. They wanted to be actively involved in their build but also wanted to have a construction manager to take care of the day to day responsibilites of the build. They both worked full time, so they did not want to do our UBuildIt program... so CMA was the right choice.

Larry and Donna created a construction blog during the building of their dream home. Take a look and see HERE

Fyffe Home - Midway, KY

Tim and Amy Fyffe came to one of our UBuildIt seminar and liked what they heard. The wanted to have control of their project but also wanted to save money over going the conventional route with a builder.

Tim is a Vice President at Central Bank here in Lexington and is no stranger to many of the local builders. However, both Tim and Amy liked what they heard at our seminar and contracted with us to complete our home planning and design phase. After reviewing both our UBuildIt and CMA programs, they decided they wanted to go with the CMA build method.

This home is situated on a nice farm with a wonderful vineyard and the house overlooks a peaceful pond. Please take a look at some pictures taken during the construction of this beautiful home!

Their home was newly renovated but they wanted to open the floor plan up, remove the dated sunken living room, add a pantry off the kitchen, install new hardwood floors, add a new energy efficient fireplace and as well as two double french doors to the greatroom.
 
After a couple of meetings CMA was selected as the contractor for their new home renovation. They wanted to be actively involved in their build but also wanted to have a construction manager to take care of the day to day responsibilites of the build. They both worked full time, so they did not want to do our UBuildIt program... so CMA was the right choice.

Melton Renovation – River Road – Harrodsburg, KY

Melton Renovation - River Road - Harrodsburg, KY

Jeff loves living on the Kentucky RIver but hated getting wet every time the river flooded. What was the solution? Raise his house two foot above the Army Corps Of Engineers 100 year flood elevation.

Interested in some construction specifics?  The decking was treated 5/4 screwed into the joists. The joists are treated 2by8s, the beams 2by10 treated. The beams are bolted to the 6by6 vertical posts with carriage bolts. The 6by6 treated posts are anchored into the ground in bag mix. From an engineering standpoint, this is the best method to anchor your posts in the ground.(far better that incasing them in concrete) All fasteners are galvanized and all joists secured with joist hangers. The spindles are treated 2by2's and no section of the rail or ramp will have an opening more that 4 inches which is Kentucky Building Code. The ramp has no less than a 48 inch clearance between inside rails.

Please take a look at the pictures below to see check out this unique project.

McCann Addition – Westmoreland Estates – Lexington, KY

McCann Addition - Westmoreland Estates - Lexington, KY

Mike McCann came our our UBuildIt Home Building Seminar and decided to have us build an addition on their beautiful home is at 3557 Gloucester Drive in Westmoreland Estates off Versalles Road in Lexington.

Westmoreland is an older upscale developed subdivision in a great location where residents are comfortable upgrading their homes because the property values support the renovations and it is hard to find comparable properties around Lexington.

I hope you enjoy seeing Mikes new addition. Please read on... as we both have put in a lot of hard work and want to show it off to you!
