Corbel Redesign and Fabrication

We discovered eight original wooden corbels that had been hidden under aluminum siding for decades! While the corbels had been partially protected, we were told by a number of people that they could not be salvaged or restored. Since we had eight original samples, each of the Corbel design aspects was measured and digitized in AutoCAD. With the digital design in-hand we contacted more than a half dozen of fabrication mills and provided the file for quoting. Ultimately the eight Corbels were reproduced in white AZEK PVC by Randy Bouma at Whole Sale Millwork in Grand Rapids, MI. 49512. Randy was able to take the CAD drawing and calibrate the tool paths so the finished product would be exact.

New AC units, sleeves and some maintenance

New air conditioning units

It was time to remove 3 AC units that had been cemented into the existing front, side and back wall and install 3 brand new sleeve units. Because the original units were standard window units that were framed and sealed in the wall (without a sleeve), we needed to:

  • measure the area to determine what size sleeve and AC unit would be possible,
  • cut some of the surrounding brick and mortar to extract the old units,
  • install and insulate the area that surrounded each new A/C sleeve, and finally
  • install each of the new A/C units properly in their new home.

House (up)keeping

We needed to refresh the curb-side appeal the house had when we purchased it six years ago. To do this, we hired Champion Interiors to perform the following tasks:

  • Pressure wash the painted concrete in front of the house, seal and paint the area;
  • Scrape flaking paint on the two front columns, prime and paint;
  • Repair each of the cracked stucco lines and blend / re-finish;
  • Clean and remove rust spots on the front/side railings and prime with Rustoleum and paint;
  • Repair/ weld broken section of gate to side of building, clean, prime and paint.

We also did a little work inside:

  • Repaired walls and ceiling before priming and painting the entire 2nd floor – including stairwell
  • Clean interior skylight trims and prime and paint
  • Clean bathroom tile/grout and re-grout and caulk as necessary
