After Tree Hit
The Original Porch after painting
A 50' Maple hit this end of the house. Porch was smashed and everything shifted.
Many of the materials were special order and we had to wait. We built the rails onsite and modified the original design to meet code.

     This 100 year old home in New London sustained serious damage after a fire burned through the walls and ceilings of a second floor bedroom. The pictures below show our initial efforts to remove the damaged materials and in coordination with the homeowner we are changing the interior layout to create a more modern and open space ...

One of our old customers has asked us to custom build a 4 door, Carriage House replica for their garage doors. These doors were designed by CCU and built in our shop ...  we began the on site installation this week and if the  weather permits will complete final painting this week ....
This customer has decided to blend a modern woodstove and audio/visual layout with the old fashioned farmhouse look of their original living room ... CCU has designed and built a modern component cabinet and a shaker style bookcase, added a natural stone veneer as a modern element in this living room update ... we have other pictures coming as the homeowner is waiting for their flat screen TV and they have also added additional projects in the stairwell area.
     We have most of the interior demolition and framing completed, we switched the old front door to the back door and enlarged the front door. The windows are all in and we are fine tuning  fir-outs and painstakingly preserving the old woodwork . The plumber and electrician will take two weeks to run the rough in work ... when they have completed their rough-in the New London Building Officials will inspect the electrical, plumbing and our framing changes and repairs.
All our inspections have passed we are insulating and will have that inspection Thursday. Drywall is being delivered Friday and the work we have done so far will come together. 
Drywall has been completed and doors and trim are being installed along with the kitchen and baths. Finishing details and painting over the next few weeks, things are looking good!
The homeowners have been back home since 6/16/2014, we have been finalizing exterior work and are doing final punch list items, the devil is in the detail ! We are clearing our tools out and happy to see another family get their home back after disaster strikes. 
On to the next challange!

Kitchen Remodel                                     Meriden,CT
This couple recently closed on this eastside home, they called on CCU to help open up the floor plan and modernize the kitchen. We have  added a 'Strong Back' Beam in the attic which is secured above the trusses and allows the trusses to hang from it  taking stress off the truss and  preventing cracking in the ceiling.
The electrical and heating have been re-arranged and recess lighting above the new island and main cabinet walls has been installed ...
