A Carriage House Goes Up In 5 Days

A Carriage House Goes Up In 5 Days

This carriage house goes from components and pieces, to a completely enclosed structure in five days.  I’ve purposely left the time stamp on the photos so you may not only watch the progress, but be able to tell how much gets done each day. It’s a fascinating thing to see, in person or by way of pictures. carriage house


Carriage House Construction Day 1

Our five day journey of this carriage house construction begins on March 31st of this year, 2012. The crew is on-site before 6 am and has already begun working. The previous day several panels had been set in place on the newly firm concrete floor so that work could begin early on this sunny morning.

While interior finish work remains (the ladder is a hint!), you can already see the living space on the second level is going to be special.

This is a wonderful interior, even without the wallboard in place!

While taken several weeks later, you can see this carriage house continued to make progress. As with all projects, interior finish work takes some time, but all in all, this Yankee barn Homes carriage house went up quickly and efficiently!
