Here is what Amber said about Straight Ahead Construction

“We were very happy with the bathroom remodel Straight Ahead construction did for us. The bathroom turned out beautifully. It was done on time, and within budget. We hope to hire them again for future projects”

Post and pad foundation replacement on permafrost in Fairbanks, Alaska

Like many cabins and homes in Fairbanks built by rushed homeowners, attention to the foundation detail was lacking on this one.  Attention owner/ builders: when your friend’s advice is to take your time and do your foundation correctly do it!

The problem here was many fold. Each length of bean were three separate pieces poorly tied together with small nail plates on one side. The floor joists were not continuous either and butted together on the center beam underneath which adds to the complexity of replacing the beam.

We took steel I beams and prepped them for placement underneath.

I beams were placed on cribs we built underneath.

When we removed the lattice from the sides of the house we were in awe of the amount of over-cantilevering, if that word is allowed, and piers that did nothing.  Needless to say, we got in and leveled this North Pole home so it is ready sale.

Fall projects for Straight Ahead Construction (Part 1)

IMG_1606

We picked back up with this Fairbanks, Alaska log home this week. Monkey Wrench Mechanical is our trusted plumbing subcontractor and they roughed in the vents, drains, and supply lines.  IMG_1608

The mechanical room is going in as we speak. Hopefully we will be heating this place in a few weeks to start moving in and finish it up.
