Happy Friday!

Gone is the PT decking/builder grade railing and in with the pebble gray trex/vinyl drink rail railing. The original stairs were torn down and new built.
After the home owner installed the lattice underneath, this deck is done! ✅

Time to enjoy the cooler fall weather instead of staining the deck! 🎃 🍁

Thank you Jeff and Carol Ealy!

Just a reminder that the cheapest quote isn’t always the right quote.

Never stack shingles like this. Roofs aren’t designed to hold that amount of weight in one spot. Even if it doesn’t break through, significant structure damage could occur in your attic and you wouldn’t know it.

(Not my photo but I’ve seen this done time and time again)

Please research contractors and pick quality over costs.

Summer is coming to an end and those crisp fall mornings will soon be here. What a great time to enjoy a brand new 3 seasons room.

This build included new deck boards on the existing 16’x20’ deck, with a new maintenance free 3 seasons room built on top!

I can almost smell the pumpkin spice already!

Material by Spahn and Rose Independence

Thank you Kreutner Family! (Golden Retriever Sadie, and Riggs the cat included!)

It’s been awhile but employee of the month for July is Sadie! She likes to start her day easy with a bit of lounging on the trailer door and planning for the day ahead but then she’s a real go getter! Congrats Sadie!

Sadie belongs to the Kreutner Family

Updated hall closet!

Shiplap for days!
The old builder grade wire shelving was removed. bifold door gone and we started with a blank slate.

A bench was built (cushion to be added later), then it was time to Shiplap. Shiplap extends from the bench all the way to the ceiling!

A custom size shelf and custom size cubbies were belt to hold glove/ hat baskets.

10 black hooks ensure everyone has a place to hang their gear!

Thank you Matt, Brie, and Oliver!

There’s no such thing as too much storage. Make use of those tall garage walls!

These shelves feature threaded rod secured to the roof trusses and 2x4 construction. You could set an engine block up there and they won’t budge!

Thank you Josh, Christy and Family!

Now is a great time to replace those leaky windows!

New double hung vinyl replacements.

Thank you Spahn & Rose Lumber Co. and The Friedhoff Family!

God Bless the USA! Happy 4th of July!!!

[06/24/20]   You can’t get to the finished product until you get through the planning and estimating.

So much of the construction process is done before a project starts. From estimating costs, to ordering material.

Small jobs to large jobs.

Bearbower Construction does it all. Please let us know if your thinking of doing a project!

Before and after pictures of a project that just got wrapped up!

Whole house project. This included removing all aluminum siding, fascia, soffit, windows, doors, and interior trim.

New tyvek installed, rotten plywood replaced, new vinyl siding, white aluminum soffit/fascia, Marvin windows, exterior doors, and interior oak casing!

All material from Spahn & Rose Lumber Co.

Thank you Novak family!

🇺🇸 Happy Memorial Day. Remember and honor all of those who have sacrificed for our freedom. God Bless the USA 🇺🇸

Checking over tools to make sure they meet OSHA requirements.

The supervisor showed up on the jobsite today to check progress. Good thing I looked busy!

Custom new house = Custom new Vanities, mirrors, and kitchen table.

With an eye for detail, this home owner wanted custom. Rough Sawn Cedar, oil rubbed bronze hardware, and premium drawer slides are just a few of the details that make up the vanities and vanity mirrors.

The huge farm house style table is built from solid Red Oak and poplar. Featuring mortise and tendon joinery, this table seats 8 with plenty of room to spare!

Thank you Kyle, Megan, Easton, Carter, and KJ!

See what it will look like before you start!

Sometimes the cheapest quote isn’t the right quote. 🤦🏻‍♂️

Wrap around porch

When the home owners first contacted me and said they we’re thinking of making their porch “a bit bigger” that was an understatement....... The old porch was about 8’ x 12’. The new porch is about 8’x 90’!
It feature Pressure treated authentic porch boards, white maintaince free PVC boards, and Black pro snap metal roofing, just to name few features.

I can see a lot of hot chocolate 🍫 and adult beverages being drank here in the future. 🍺

Thank you to Luke, Kristen, and Family!

Oak Chests and Book shelf with crown molding built-in.

This project features two custom solid oak chests/benches with a custom bookcase with crown molding. Benches are built to have a fabric wrapped cushion installed on top.

Those rainy ☔️ days won’t be quite as gloomy once this book case is stocked! 📖 📚

Thank you John, Chelsea, and Coop!

Special thanks to the quality control specialist in the last pic for his attention to detail!

Oh yeah!!!!!!

Thank you Joe, Kelly, and Camron!

Kitchen Remodel

On this project all cabinets and countertops were removed and replaced.

This kitchen features stained wood lower cabinets, white extra tall uppers, oil rubbed bronze pulls, and large crown molding takes these cabinets to the ceiling! Finished up just in time for Christmas dinner!

Thank you Josh, Christy, Quinn, and Hayes!

The stockings were hung on the chimney with care, in hope that St. Nicholas soon would be there.

This chimney underwent an overhaul.
Tile was removed, all trim work removed, and the hearth was lowered to accommodate new stone. (Stone work done by stone supply).

All the original wood work was painted and modified to be put back up. Ship lap and trim boards were added above the mantel along with a custom wide crown molding.

Santa isn’t going to want to leave after he comes down this chimney. 🎅🏻🌲

Thank you to Josh, Christy, Quinn, and Hayes!

Built to last generations.

This custom built, 6 drawer dresser features full access ball bearing drawer slides, mortise and tendon drawer joints, chalk paint and oil rubbed bronze handles. Built and sized to fit the room it’s going into. Made out of solid Poplar, it will last for years!

Out with the old rotten cedar railing and in with the new Trex Enhanced vinyl railing system (with drink rail).

No staining. Ever. That drink rail will definitely get some use with all the extra time on your hands! 🍺 🍻

Thank you Cheryl and Dana!

Fall is here and the mosquitoes are gone. This maintenance free porch is the perfect way to enjoy a cup of pumpkin spice!

It features PVC wrapped columns, Trex composite decking, and Trex low voltage column/stair lighting.

Thank you to Rhonda for letting me work on this beautiful craftsman style home!

Also, thank you to Spahn & Rose Lumber Co.for supplying great material.

Nothing updates a houses curb appeal like new siding and soffit.

On this project the maintenance heavy cedar was removed and new vinyl siding and aluminum soffit installed.
A few framing issues were fixed, Tyvek installed,new garage service door, 3 new windows, and brick molding added to top it off!

The Bearbower Construction difference.
In common problem areas (under doors, over roofing step flashing, etc) Azek PVC boards were used for durability and clean look.

The home owners will enjoy years of maintenance free living!

Thank you to the McGlaughlins and Spahn & Rose Lumber Co.!

[08/30/19]   I can't say enough about this covered porch. it turned out absolutely beautiful to match the home owners existing house and yard.

The first two pictures are the "before" pics. As you can see the covered porch had cedar decking, railings, and posts. It was time for an update.

The hot tub was moved off the deck on to a brand new stamped concrete patio (Bearbower Concrete) and demo could begin.

This covered porch includes.

Trex decking with hidden fasteners in a "picture frame design.

New and larger set of stairs leading up to the deck with wide top step and degree corner steps.

Trex Enhanced railing with white vinyl rails, black square balusters, and drink rail to match decking installed.

All Posts and Beams were made larger and wrapped with Azek PVC boards.

A bar height composite decking table was tied in to the hand rail for a integrated look.

Outdoor Ceiling fan installed by the homeowner

Vinyl skirting under deck.

New land scaping by home owner

To top it all off 21 Trex low voltage lighting light up this space even on the darkest nights. including railing post lights and stair riser lights.
