Hi everyone! Hope you are staying safe and healthy! We are still building lots of homes and working with many families who’s homes we will be starting soon! Let us know if you have any questions on how the building process works, how long it takes to build a home or anything about home building 😃

Most of our projects are single family custom homes but every so often we get a different type of project. This awesome job was a penthouse build-out for one of our repeat clients. Having built two custom homes for this client this penthouse build-out was the third project for this lovely couple who are now empty nesters. Lifelong clients baby! 🙌🏻. • #repeatclients #newconstruction #penthouse#theseguysknowwhattheyredoing • Looking to to build or renovate? Contact us via ☎️, 📧, or DM.

Wind and rain. Disease and disaster. Construction never stops.

Properly flashing windows is super important but the price of today’s flashing tapes is definitely not low cost. Some stretch tapes can cost over $200 a roll! A solution we have come up with is to line our window sills with ice & water shield and save the expensive stretchy sill tapes for the corners. And this actually performs better! This method can save $600-$700 a house! We don’t promote any particular brand of tape over another but there are definitely ones that work better than others. Remember to pitch those window sills 5 degrees! You’re welcome 😉 • #Flashingtape #newconstruction #window#theseguysknowwhattheyredoing • Looking to to build or renovate? Contact us via ☎️, 📧, or DM.

Now this is cool — a custom-fabricated full stainless mount installed by Cornwall Plumbing & Heating in CT. . The mount goes through the stone veneer, rain screen, and then the concrete wall. This allows for reliable weatherproofing through the entire wall assembly. The hydrant attaches to the mount with machine screws, and an EPDM gasket seals the flange. . Aquor provided custom-made 24” hydrants with brushed stainless covers. This project took a bit of extra planning between the builder and subs to pull off, but the end result speaks for itself! _ #keepcraftalive #highperformancehomes #buildingscience #wearehammr #homebuilders #contractorlife #concreteconstruction #fabricationlife #plumbproud #plumbinglife #plumblife

Well wouldn’t that make glue-ups a dream 🤤 I have never seen a clamp table to this scale before... Imagine what you could create. You have to appreciate it when the guys in the back of the shop take time out of their builds to walk you through the process of using it. Today I was picking up a few oak bar tops, and noticed the fir laying beside the clamp table, which is for us as well... Soon to become a few hundred linear feet of box beams 🤘⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #timberframe #yeg #bengelcustomhomes #carpentry #construction #customhomebuilder #craftsmanship #tradesman #yegbuilder #carpenter #edmonton #trades #tylerrobbinscarpentry #moderncraftsman #design #wearehammr #drywall #tradesman #keepcraftalive #timber #interiordesign

Did you ever want to add a skylight but the ceiling layout didn’t coincide with the roof layout? Solution- a sky light room. This home we built in Naperville 5 years ago was designed with a 2 -story foyer and a cluster of sky lights in the ceiling above. The sky lights are really frosted structural glass that you can walk on! They are built in a separate room in the attic above that has the true skylights with reflective paint on the walls. They allow the natural light to flood into the foyer below. An added bonus is the lighting in the room that mimics natural light in the evenings and continues to flood the foyer with light at night. • #TBT #newconstruction #skylight#theseguysknowwhattheyredoing • Looking to to build or renovate?

Joist customization: With all items we are trying to avoid while installing joists and the amount of steel we have there are bound to be a few joists that end up on a bolt. Our truss designer gives us an extra block on the end of each joist that can be removed if needed to adjust for a joist that may end up a little long. In this case we used a Forstner bit and drilled out the back of the joist to allow for a tight fit against our beam, this joist will be secured with a joist hanger. • • #residentialconstruction #homebuilding #framersareadyingbreed #customframing #houseframing #customhome #newbuild #builderlife #buildbetter #newbuild #JABDmodernbuild • • #jabd #jacksonandrewsbuilding #virginiabeachbuilder #virginiabeach #vabeach #wearehammr #finehomebuilding

-27 windchill tonight... I just want it to warm up enough to get the stone on and see this exterior combination come together 😍 Pillars still need to be framed down to grade, but before that can happen we need to break out the big guns and cut off the few feet of concrete nosings that are in the way.

I went to college to be an Industrial Technology Teacher, and after my 2nd year of college, I switched to Construction Management. ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ I realized being stuck in a classroom wasn't for me - I wanted to be doing more hands on stuff! ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ As the first entrepreneur of my family, I felt a lot of resistance when leaving the safety of the "corporate world" to start my dream and my passion - owning my own construction business. ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ Blake Builders was established in early 2017 and I'm proud to say that we've experienced exponential growth each year.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ * How'd you get into the industry?⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ During college, I had an internship at a large commercial construction company as well as a local home builder. ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ I quickly realized how much I loved the construction industry during college and the pride of driving by a project that I was a part of! ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ I also enjoyed the communication aspect and picking up the phone to meet new people. ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ I truly enjoyed framing a wall or building a deck and coming back to show friends or family the project I had built. ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ As a home builder, we tell clients how excited we are to be a part of a process where it's one of the largest investments for them. ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ As well as one of the few products they get to see made before their eyes. ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ You don't get to watch your car being built, but you can watch your home start from nothing to the finished product.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ * What makes you excited about the future of construction? ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ Technology makes me very excited. ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ If you aren't into the technology of construction; the time to start, is NOW! ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ The online based project management softwares that are available is a game changer. ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ Clients want to be communicated with daily and these programs help bridge that gap. ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ The social media aspect is also very exciting. Being able to connect and bounce ideas off of builders across the world is so great!⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ * What's your mantra?⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ The only person you need permission from is yourself.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ #WorkforceWednesday 🛠 ⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ @blakebuilders ⁠⠀ Hammr Evangelist

To get a more clean and modern look we are having our HVAC contractor install linear diffusers for our supply vents at all feasible locations. They are much longer than standard vents and therefore don’t always fit where you want them due to standard framing. Sometimes modifications need to be made to the framing. These linear diffusers are custom fabricated by Jerry our HVAC guy. Love how tightly wrapped the insulation is around the boots.

It’s tough - both physically and mentally - to work during this crisis. But I’m very thankful to be able to have a job and work. Trying to limit our construction and exposure to the hospital staff and patients I started taking the extra precautions wearing my @rzmask. The doctors and nurses are the true heroes. Hoping everyone stays safe out there.

We really enjoy helping our clients understand what they see on the plans, if were not creating a full scale mock up then spray paint is our second choice. Seen here is a the layout of our fireplace marked on the block foundation. The pink represents the firebox of the fireplace and the blue is showing where the CMU block will go, combing to create our 18’ wide, double sided fireplace. This turned out to be helpful for our field work as well since we have some steel that sits on the blockwork, allowing a great visual and place to pull measurements from. • • Project: #JABDModernBuild Architecture: @beckermorgangroup Builder: @jacksonandrewsbuilding • • #fireplace #CMU #spraypaint #mockup #layitout #residentialconstruction #homebuilding #customhome #newbuild #builderlife #buildbetter #newbuild # • • #jabd #jacksonandrewsbuilding #virginiabeachbuilder #virginiabeach #vabeach #wearehammr #moderncraftsman #finehomebuilding #23454

Well here’s a progress post on the custom home we are building! We have a foundation and we poured and set anchor bolts today! Unfortunately the guys pouring today were not in sync and they ended up destroying two piers 🤦🏻‍♂️ But we are all human and we make mistakes! Just have and roll with the punches 👊🏻 and fix it and get ready for the next phase! I also jumped on water proofing the foundation after the pump guys left.

This is one of the reasons that old houses are torn down and make way for new homes. This bathroom is in a house we are tearing down soon. It is 40” wide by 42” long. It has a 19” wide vanity. I can’t believe it’s even a bathroom. It’s so small you have to go outside to change your mind. No room to expand it with the existing floor plan. The dirt is worth more than the house sitting on it.

Quality isn't a one time thing- it means you check everything, from the ground up, throughout construction. Friday we spent time on the roof at our Hill Country Farmhouse project making sure it's punched and installed correctly.

Lots of steel beam “pack out” going on to not only be ready for joists but to be able to apply sheathing, trim, railings, and other elements further down the road. In order to do this we request holes in the top, bottom, and web so we can attach anywhere thats needed. I also make sure to have multiple thicknesses of CDX plywood on hand so the guys can pad them out flush with the face of the steel. • • #steelbeams #residentialconstruction #homebuilding #awesomeframers #customframing #houseframing #customhome #newbuild #builderlife #buildbetter #newbuild #JABDmodernbuild #subfloor • • #jabd #jacksonandrewsbuilding #virginiabeachbuilder #virginiabeach #vabeach #wearehammr #moderncraftsman #finehomebuilding

Our semi-detached build is nearing completion. A quick walk through of one of the 1000 sqft units to show the interior layout. The plans called for double bottom plates to allow for 2” of gypcrete to be poured on top of the subfloor. Will have framing inspection next week after the plumbers are done with their rough-ins. The last phase of our scope will be the completion of the staircases, landings, backing, bulkheads and ceiling strapping ✅ Probably looking at a bit of a break after this build, with the situation for most new construction being uncertain during this time. Hope everyone is making the best of this situation, and we’ll all be able to return to normalcy soon! . . . . . . #carpenterlife #newconstruction #homebuilding #walkthrough #framer #framersareadyingbreed #framerlife #customcarpentry #carpenter #kelemenconstruction #lovewhatido #builtup #squaresnapbuildrepeat #interior #lockwoodbrothers #construction #keepcraftalive #wearehammr

☔️ ☔️ In continuation of yesterdays post, one other procedure we’ve decided to put into place to mitigate rain exposure is to #ZipTape our @huberwood #Advantech subfloor on the second floor to limit water exposure to our first floor. Given the long time frame of this build we decided it made sense to take this extra step now and then we can control where the water goes. This will also allow for us to work underneath on the first floor on rain days, hopefully preventing any “lost” work days. 🔨 🔨 • • #raindays #norain #awesomeframers #customframing #houseframing #customhome #newbuild #builderlife #buildbetter #newbuild #JABDmodernbuild #subfloor • • #jabd #jacksonandrewsbuilding #virginiabeachbuilder #virginiabeach #vabeach #wearehammr #moderncraftsman #finehomebuilding

🌧 🌧 We’ve seen so much rain this winter, more than I can remember in recent history (but our memories are short 💭) We’re taking steps wherever we can to be conscientious of materials that will see lots of water and taking steps where we can to protect them. As we have been setting steel beams that have to be “packed out” with framing members to accept joists we have started using @huberwood Zip tape to seal them up where water could possibly get in and cause those framing members to expand, cup, and twist, subsequently pushing our joists around. • • #longliveourbuildings #steelbeams #customhome #newbuild #ziptape #builderlife #buildbetter #newbuild #JABDmodernbuild • • #jabd #jacksonandrewsbuilding #virginiabeachbuilder #virginiabeach #vabeach #wearehammr #moderncraftsman #finehomebuilding

I remember driving my little electric truck behind my dad's truck to the spec house. ⠀ ⠀ Growing up, I was always on job sites. ⠀ ⠀ He would give me a box of roofing nails and tell me to pound them into the subfloor. I remember getting yelled at when I veered too far from the chalklines.⠀ ⠀ Every summer was spent working with my dad.⠀ ⠀ I remember pouring footers, laying block, framing walls, roofing, shingling, siding, rough-in electric and plumbing, and finishing houses. ⠀ ⠀ But I wasn’t set on the trades. ⠀ ⠀ My parents and everyone else strongly opposed me entering the trades. ⠀ ⠀ They wanted me to go to college and get a degree.⠀ ⠀ After high school, I joined the Army Reserves and went to college. ⠀ ⠀ It was fun for awhile but I felt like I was in the wrong place. ⠀ ⠀ I spent a lot of time on active duty orders with the Army and I missed a lot of school. ⠀ ⠀ It took me being gone from the States and my family for a year to figure out what I wanted to do. ⠀ ⠀ I realized I wanted to pursue carpentry regardless of what anyone thought.⠀ ⠀ I wanted a vacation not just a job. ⠀ ⠀ Something that I could devote my life to. A craft I could study. ⠀ ⠀ Something fulfilling and impactful. ⠀ ⠀ I left college in my junior year. And for the last 4 years I've worked full time for my dad. ⠀ ⠀ I have taken over much of the responsibility for the company and now we're focused on new construction.⠀ ⠀ * What makes you excited about the future of construction?⠀ ⠀ The advancements in building materials and building science. The houses we are building today are awesome! ⠀ ⠀ Not only in regards to structure and weather management but the insulation, heating & air etc. ⠀ ⠀ Homes are better and more efficient than ever before and I think people are starting to see the benefits of building new.⠀ ⠀ I'm Ed Mack. I am a lead carpenter for Eddie Mack Construction, a company that my dad started in 1970. ⠀ ⠀ I am an Army veteran and recently married my high school⠀ sweetheart. ⠀ ⠀ Last year, I purchased land to build my own house.⠀ ⠀ And I work on it at night and on the weekends after work. ⠀ ⠀ I love all aspects of carpentry but framing is my passion.⠀ ⠀ * Mantra? “All In, All The Time”
