Parade of Homes,
« on: August 12, 2018, 07:15 PM »
Did all the casework for this home and another for the Colorado Springs Parade of Homes. Both homes were completed in about 8 weeks.

Mad push the last few days to get things done. 7 hours sleep in 96 hours. I was kinda tired afterwards.

When the pictures are up of the second home I’ll post the links.

Missed seeing your posts but knew you must be working really hard.

Great work as usual and even faster than usual.

Tom, really great work as usual!

Thank you.

I did have help. Those who have/had employees will understand this, 0 help, 3 help, 1 help, 2 help. The first two I hired were not around long enough to see the projects completed.

Ed Michnick (a member here) was instrumental in getting me here to do the homes and helping getting them completed on time.

Thank you.

Long days, probably averaged 16 hours a day for those weeks.

If you take a good look, all of the casework is seamless. The large island is on piece, the small island is one piece, the lowers on the oven wall is a 13’7” long cabinet. The tall bar cabinets are 96” tall x 42” wide x 27” deep. Every cabinet was built to fit the space.

Thank god for large front doors.

Yes, if you go to the Finishing and Painting section of the forum and search my screen name you’ll see I know a wee bit about finishing.....

Amazing work - really beautiful interiors!

So 8 weeks - was that the interior trim / finishing or more?  I'm amazed as it's hard to order cabinets and even receive them in 8 weeks!

Thanks for sharing.  Are you enjoying Colorado and being closer to your children / grandkids as I recall?

8 weeks was all the casework completed in both the parade homes. Fabricated, finished and installed. Normally I would figure 6-8 weeks per home.

Trim work was by their trim contractor.

Our oldest daughter, her husband and “my girls” live about 40 minutes north. I left behind a wife, 2 children and 2 grandchildren.

Shameless photo of “my girls” below. Got to babysit them yesterday and spend some of today with them.

Downside is that hail storm that got the zoo and made national news got my truck.

Tom - just stellar work - wow! So very cool. Cannot wait to see the other house. I used to live in Colorado and would do the Parade of Homes every year. There are some spectacular properties in the show.

If you ever need any help on out of town projects give me a call. I also do cabinets, trim carpentry, and finishing. Great work by the way.

They are what you get when your 40 year old over achieving daughter finally decides they are going to have a child. Can’t do just one....

Tom,
As usual, your work is superb!  I love the fact that, even though you have incredible bragging right for the top-notch work you produce, you are always eager to help others out on FOG when they have questions.

Thanks for sharing!  Mike A.

I was back at the scene of the crime today (what I call the second home, I was there when the hail storm that killed the animals at the zoo occurred, the hail destroyed my truck).

I took some photos of the casework. I'll post a link when the professional photos are on the builders website.

Unbelievable output Tom. I would have loved to have come down and helped you out. I think I would have learned a thing or two...did you spray all the cabinetry with Kem Aqua or something else? If so are you using the airless? Looks like a great space to work in.

KA+, was the finish.  Surfacer was shot through a AAA, white was shot through a Triton, grays Fuji connected to a pot.

Tom,

Good large-scale project here. About how long were you on this?

Curious if you're using different sprayers for different finishes because thats what they are best at or what you had on hand at the time?

Is the lumber sourced S4S or raw and taken through?
helper: i used a festool "circular saw" to do something simple and it made it really hard

me: exactly, it makes simple cuts complicated and complicated cuts simple

Which reminds me... I need to go through iPhoto and delete all my old Parade of Homes pictures that were inspirational but will never come to be.

Surfacer was shot through a AAA,

AAA next on my list. Should have got one to start with. Still happy with my Fuji system, very versatile and convenient. You can get exceptional finish with clears and stains in particular. To get the best off the gun finish, I find I really need the pressure pot when spraying KemAqua+.

Looks great Tom. Are you using the Graco 395 finish pro II as your AAA, or another unit?

Yes it is 395 FP II.

I just fired up (like 2 hours ago) a Merkur I bought used, spraying pigmented KA+. Pretty impressive.

On the parade homes I used, the 395, Triton and the Fuji. Which one depended on what I was shooting.
