Ray Peden was willing to take on the Project Management for us. Ray is a retired Structural Engineer who owned his own Engineering and Construction Company for over 30 years in Central KY. He was responsible for 100 MM in engineering projects when he contracted with the State of Kentucky and developed multiple residential subdivisions.

The original house was built in the late 1,800s with a total of 3,170 SF. Six years ago another owner built a 1,500 SF addition on the house. There is also have a 900SF separate garage included in the scope of this renovation.

We started the project by completely demolishing the six year old addition and tearing the existing house apart so it only contained stud walls. The electrical wiring was knob and tube, the plumbing cast iron and a boiler system for heat. All of this was demolished and put into the dumpsters.

After demolition we were going to pour new footings and foundation walls for this now 4,090 SF addition and renovation. Our Project Manager and structural engineer looked at the foundation and recommended we use the existing stone foundation and under pin it down to bedrock with a slab jack system. We ended up using Dwyers patented foundation repair system..

After a minimal amount of excavation, a multiple heavy-duty steel brackets are attached to the foundation. Then steel piers are hydraulically driven through the bracket to bedrock or supporting strata to create a permanent new foundation support. When the affected area of the foundation is repositioned and/or stabilized, the steel piers are locked permanently to the brackets.

These concrete repairs cost $20,000 but saved the owner $15,000 over installing new foundation walls and footings. Nothing like saving money at the start of the job to please the owners!

The framing began after the foundations were in. The framing included a new first and second floor addition and reframing much of the interior of the existing house to facilitate the new layout. The windows and doors are Anderson E-Series commonly used in most all historic renovations in our area. There was $28,000 in new windows installed in the renovated home.

All the interior doors are solid core and match the existing doors in the current home. The existing trim casing, plinths and base were made to match all the existing trim of that 1800’s time period.

The house has a new geothermal heating system and is insulated with hydrophobic foam insulation on all exterior walls. All interior walls are insulated with a sound barrier insulation.

There is 15,000 brick in two new full masonry fireplaces of the Rumford Design. This design includes a Rumford throat, cast iron damper, smoke chamber and clay flue liner. The fireplace from basement to top of the chimney is over five stories! The fireboxes are laid in a Herringbone pattern where sides weave visually smoothly into rear wall. We used a special brick mason that understood the Rumford design criteria.

The roof is a combination of copper and shingles. The copper roof is hand locked 16 oz copper with 1 inch standing seams, 16 inches on center flat lock and soldered over full coverage with Grace High TempIce Guard and Water shield. The gutters are Ogee copper with copper downspouts tied into underground drainage system.

All exterior trim is mitered and mouldings are Boral Tru-Exterior trim. The stone veneer is a 4-inch thick real stone to match the existing stone on the house. The rear patio and porches will have 2.5 inch thick real stone pavers. There is over $25,000 in stone in this project.

This home will be a Control 4 Smart home. This includes whole house audio video with multi-room music and surround sound, Lutron lighting controls thru out the house, a full surveillance system with cameras backed up for 2 weeks on DVD, multiple wireless access points, garage door controls and all the coax/data/and phone drops.

The exterior of the building is clad in real Kentucky limestone. The same limestone that filters our spring water and is used to make every great bourbon in the world. The cutting and laying of this limestone is truly an art.
The hardwood floors will be reclaimed hardwood wood similar to what would be installed in the current 1800s time period. Tiles will also be selected based on the same criteria.

I hope you enjoy seeing this impressive historical renovation that we have undertaken for the Bostocks.

Karrer Home – Sadieville, KY

Bill and Karen Karrer built their unique dream home in Sadieville down the road from Georgetown in a rural Scott County. They have a nice farm in the pristine countryside. Bill is retired and has been very active in the build. This home is a very different type of construction than the average home. It is built of SIPS or structurally insulated panels on all the exterior walls and roof panels.The panels are prebuilt at the factory and installed on site. These are placed with the help of our carpenters and a crane.

When you construct a SIPS house all your mechanicals have to be ready to go in the wall with locations determined in the factory as the panels are basically 2 pieces of OSB with foam sandwiched inside. Lots of pre planning needs to go into a home with this construction.

There is a 1,293 SF full finished basement, the main floor has 1,422 SF, the garage has 1,032 SF. The main floor features a conference room with fireplace, large kitchen, sunroom, walk in pantry, half bath, large master office suite with 2 vanities, walk-in shower, soaking tub and ample closet space. There is a deck as well as another half bath laundry and 3.5 car garage.

In the basement there is a lower conference room, kitchenette, 2 other offices a full bath and storage room.

I hope you enjoy seeing this beautiful, energy efficient and functional home that Bill and Karen have designed and worked very hard on!
