Back on Maywood for another project with our awesome clients; this time the Rochman Design Build team will be adding a dormer, giving the family much needed additional space. Please visit this current work ‘blog’ frequently to see the transformation.

Before we can build, we have to demolish : )

We open the ceiling in the basement to begin structural work.

The dumpster and a stack of new lumber arrive on site.

Tearing off of the roof begins.

This is the location of the new dormer addition.

The dormer wall and roof are framed.

This new ridge beam carries the new and existing roof rafters.

The rooms are shaping up.

This is a view of the hallway after the new framing is complete.

This structural post carries the loads from the new ridge beam to the foundation.

A second bathroom gets a light remodel, with new tile and plumbing fixtures at the tub.

Before-a concrete slab at the side door was rough and needed more than another repair.

The slab and railings are removed as we prepare for…???

A rubber membrane roof is installed on the low-sloped dormer of this bed and bath addition. New asphalt shingles are about to be laid and flashed to the new dormer wall at the side portions of roof.

After a few corner pieces on the siding and trim, they will be ready for paint.

Rough drains and supplies at the new second floor bathroom is plumbed.

Insulated ducts for exhaust fans are installed and vented to the exterior.

Now that the drain lines are in from the bathroom above, we can install the new tub at the first floor.

It’s time to insulate, and a spray foam insulation will give the best insulation quality for the available thickness in the framing.

We fill the joist bays at the exterior floor framing space between stories.

Electrical light fixture locations are marked for easy install when the electrician arrives. The orange string shows the proposed location.

It’s time for drywall. A moisture resistant drywall is installed at the bathrooms.

Screw holes and seams are taped and mudded, then sanded.

We leave off the drywall behind the tub. This area will get a different material, called Durock.

Durock is a cement board material that doesn’t flex behind the tile.
