Residential Construction Projects
For nearly three quarters of a century, we have built our reputation by completing challenging projects. Whether you are looking to make simple upgrades to your home, or wish to design your dream home, you deserve the highest level of first hand interaction that only Frank Ferrara & Son, Inc can deliver.
We are proud to showcase a few examples of our work.
The unique location presented several difficult challenges to overcome. Building a new home around a mature tree setting is difficult when you are also building on steep terrain. Precise engineering ensured that positive drained was maintained throughout the entire property. The location also required no heavy equipment traffic below the tree canopies. In order to overcome this requirement, we developed innovative methods to quickly pump and convey the concrete footers, foundation walls and slabs.
Following in our tradition of excellence, special care was also taken during the framing process to ensure the home will stand the test of time for decades to come. The home features energy efficient Pella windows & doors, handpicked hardwood floors, granite counter tops, custom kitchen with high end appliances, custom wrought iron stair railing and much more.
This professional family was looking to increase the value and usability of their home. By finishing their basement, they were able to create the additional space they needed. Following a recommendation of their family member (a previous Ferrara customer) they contacted us. Our team was called in and delivered not only the space they needed, but also a flexible area for exercising and entertaining.
The project scope included the addition of a gym, entertainment area, great room, and custom bar. The entertaining area features engineered oak hardwood floors and Venetian plastered walls yielding a WOW look to their new space. Matching the floors is a custom designed and fabricated wet bar with storage space below. Accessories included a built in wine cooler, bar sink, and custom wine rack. The granite counters were handpicked by the owner along with end columns, marbleized to match the Venetian wall finish in the area.
A powder room was also added to increase the convenience and value of the space. The powder room includes a ceramic vessel bowl with a matching faucet and glass pedestal. Venetian plaster wall finish is also carrier into the bathroom. The gym comfortably accommodates the exercise equipment and features a 9 foot ceiling. The gym also includes frosted glass doors and windows, built in television cabinet with component storage, and an athletic sports floor.
This project shows how little details can really bring the best out of a previously unused space. With Ferrara there are no minor details that are left unaddressed. Even the family cat was considered receiving its very own privacy door to it's litter box. This project like many before it was very exciting thanks to the close relationship formed with this family. The family and Ferrara worked hand in hand to make every aspect of their dream home a reality.
