Ray Peden was willing to take on the Project Management for us. Ray is a retired Structural Engineer who owned his own Engineering and Construction Company for over 30 years in Central KY. He was responsible for 100 MM in engineering projects when he contracted with the State of Kentucky and developed multiple residential subdivisions.

The original house was built in the late 1,800s with a total of 3,170 SF. Six years ago another owner built a 1,500 SF addition on the house. There is also have a 900SF separate garage included in the scope of this renovation.

We started the project by completely demolishing the six year old addition and tearing the existing house apart so it only contained stud walls. The electrical wiring was knob and tube, the plumbing cast iron and a boiler system for heat. All of this was demolished and put into the dumpsters.

After demolition we were going to pour new footings and foundation walls for this now 4,090 SF addition and renovation. Our Project Manager and structural engineer looked at the foundation and recommended we use the existing stone foundation and under pin it down to bedrock with a slab jack system. We ended up using Dwyers patented foundation repair system..

After a minimal amount of excavation, a multiple heavy-duty steel brackets are attached to the foundation. Then steel piers are hydraulically driven through the bracket to bedrock or supporting strata to create a permanent new foundation support. When the affected area of the foundation is repositioned and/or stabilized, the steel piers are locked permanently to the brackets.

These concrete repairs cost $20,000 but saved the owner $15,000 over installing new foundation walls and footings. Nothing like saving money at the start of the job to please the owners!

The framing began after the foundations were in. The framing included a new first and second floor addition and reframing much of the interior of the existing house to facilitate the new layout. The windows and doors are Anderson E-Series commonly used in most all historic renovations in our area. There was $28,000 in new windows installed in the renovated home.

All the interior doors are solid core and match the existing doors in the current home. The existing trim casing, plinths and base were made to match all the existing trim of that 1800’s time period.

The house has a new geothermal heating system and is insulated with hydrophobic foam insulation on all exterior walls. All interior walls are insulated with a sound barrier insulation.

There is 15,000 brick in two new full masonry fireplaces of the Rumford Design. This design includes a Rumford throat, cast iron damper, smoke chamber and clay flue liner. The fireplace from basement to top of the chimney is over five stories! The fireboxes are laid in a Herringbone pattern where sides weave visually smoothly into rear wall. We used a special brick mason that understood the Rumford design criteria.

The roof is a combination of copper and shingles. The copper roof is hand locked 16 oz copper with 1 inch standing seams, 16 inches on center flat lock and soldered over full coverage with Grace High TempIce Guard and Water shield. The gutters are Ogee copper with copper downspouts tied into underground drainage system.

All exterior trim is mitered and mouldings are Boral Tru-Exterior trim. The stone veneer is a 4-inch thick real stone to match the existing stone on the house. The rear patio and porches will have 2.5 inch thick real stone pavers. There is over $25,000 in stone in this project.

This home will be a Control 4 Smart home. This includes whole house audio video with multi-room music and surround sound, Lutron lighting controls thru out the house, a full surveillance system with cameras backed up for 2 weeks on DVD, multiple wireless access points, garage door controls and all the coax/data/and phone drops.

The exterior of the building is clad in real Kentucky limestone. The same limestone that filters our spring water and is used to make every great bourbon in the world. The cutting and laying of this limestone is truly an art.
The hardwood floors will be reclaimed hardwood wood similar to what would be installed in the current 1800s time period. Tiles will also be selected based on the same criteria.

I hope you enjoy seeing this impressive historical renovation that we have undertaken for the Bostocks.

Lake House Renovation – Shady Lane – Jamestown, KY

We bought this new home in Jamestown on Lake Cumberland and then decided to add a master suite, glassed in porch and underneath that a garage. We enlarged the size of the screened in porch and built a grilling porch between the new addition and the existing house. We added a laundry room and hall to connect the new addition with the existing home.

The cost was right at $60K for the total addition and renovation.

I hope you enjoy the pictures of the build. The stonework was done by Stonemasters out of Georgetown and most of the remaining work was sourced locally through Jeff Abernathy who is an excellent builder in this area.
