Picture Descriptions

  1. The lot before we begin.

  2. 7:00 a.m. on October 11, 1996. Dan and Lisa join me for the ribbon cutting ceremony.

  3. Robert starts the excavation process as the first tree is removed.

  4. Over 60 trees were removed to make room for Mountain Majesty.

  5. The basement and main level is cleared.

  6. The basement foundation is formed.

  7. The basement and main level cement foundation is poured.

  8. The basement ceiling trusses are in place.

  9. I Damtite the main floor foundation wall. This waterproofing of the outside AND inside of the foundation walls is one of the many quality enhancements of Mountain Majesty.

  10. The basement framing is almost complete.

  11. A crane sets the first ceiling truss (view from above and behind Mountain Majesty).

  12. A crane sets the final ceiling truss (view from below Mountain Majesty).

  13. The framing from behind.

  14. The framing from the front.

  15. The center ceiling beam is set in place.....BY HAND!

  16. Pete cuts off the center point of the roof!

  17. The water and power lines are buried in the driveway.

  18. Dave and Deb (brother-in-law and sister) stain a bedroom door. Dave made all of the cabinet doors in the kitchen and bathrooms. He also made the mantle, the Brazilian cherrywood cabinet surrounding the Jacuzzi, and the loft desk cabinet. Dave made these back home in Wisconsin and Mom and Dad drove them down.

  19. Dad, Debbie (sister), Mike (Brother), Jenny (sister), Dave (brother-in-law) and I take a lunch break after a day of staining and varnishing interior doors and trim. Family and friends stained all the wood within Mountain Majesty!

  20. Angela and Michael show off their staining of the cedar siding.

  21. Eric and I stain the siding on the back of Mountain Majesty.

  22. The prow windows are installed! It took 5 men a day and a half to install all the fixed glass in Mountain Majesty. The largest piece (8 foot by 6 foot) weighs over 300 pounds.

  23. The drywall is finished.

  24. Lisa vacuums the master bedroom.

  25. Doug, JoEllen, John, Jenna, and Liz show off their trim staining.

  26. Lisa and Teri showcase Mountain Majesty.

  27. Liz and I pose with the camera during a break from staining.

  28. Paul, Susannah, Jim and Deborah take a lunch break on the upper deck after paint priming.

  29. Pete and Kevin install the cross glass above the fireplace mantle.

  30. Dad cleans and seals the Arizona river rock in the fireplace.

  31. Moving Day! August 24, 1997.

  32. Dad, Eric, Lisa and I pose in Atlanta with the rental moving truck loaded and pointed north!

  33. Me, Lisa and Dad relax in the great room during furniture moving day.

  34. The shingles are installed on the gazebo.

  35. Tint is added to the interior of the windows. Since Mountain Majesty points north, little sunlight comes directly in the prow windows. Even so, the indirect sunlight created a glare and fading problem. The window tint has eliminated the problem.

  36. The driveway is cemented for parking and for the basketball hoop.
