We are very excited about our newest project! We are currently building, from the ground up, a new duplex in West Eugene. (The previous building had burned down over a year ago and the owners decided that instead of selling the lot, they wanted to build a new duplex in it’s place.) New construction is a first for KB Construction NW, we have never built an entire building from the ground up. We are usually adding on to existing buildings or remodeling them. We are very happy to be working closely with one of our favorite subcontractors, Ready Rooter and Chapman Plumbing, throughout this project. They turned us on to this project and have been great to work with!
The project first broke ground in November 2016 and has been moving forward since. We have had to learn how to deal with and overcome new and unfamiliar obstacles, which is great, because we are always looking to learn and grow as individuals and as a company. We also have a great crew on our side, a couple of our newer carpenters have been doing new construction for as long as we’ve been in business. We are finding, strangely enough, that new construction is not much different from the many remodels and additions that we’ve done, it’s just on a larger scale. Many of the processes are exactly the same.
We would like to give Square Deal Lumber in Springfield a shout out for being so great to work with. They have done a thorough job putting our lumber package together for this project and have been on point with their deliveries to the project site.
This is a very exciting venture for our company to be able to branch out in the new construction field! Check out some pictures of the progress and be sure to come back soon to follow the journey of this exciting project.
