Rausa Builders, Corp recently completed a 12,500 sq ft commercial parking lot for a local lumber and hardware supplier in Miami. The photos below show the finalized project with included drainage, asphalt, traffic signs, landscaping and designated disabled parking spaces.
Below is a before and after comparison of a Work Without Permit violation on a property resulting in the demolition of the non-permitted part of the structure. An attempt to legalize this home addition was impossible becuase how poorly it had been constructed. Over half of the living area in this property had been built without the proper permits from the Miami-Dade Building & Zoning Dept. and therefore had to be demolished.

This is a complete remodel with multiple additions to the original structure and roof. We built an addition to the entrance of the home requiring a new roof and decorated support columns, giving the home a complete new look by itself. We also added part of a dettached garage to the homes living space and keeping half of the garage for storage. The addition of the previously detached garage to the home added an additional 900 sq ft of living space. The original concrete floor had to be cut to run new electrical and plumbing to accomodate the interior remodeling design. The home was completed with an all new look and new roof.
These clients hired Rausa Builders, Corp. to accent their beautiful home with a modern Travertine Paver Driveway, an excellent accent to the homes exterior.
This home was purchased with an existing unsafe structure cases open with Miami Dade county Building Department. The owners had to hire an attorney to file an injunction to put a halt to the demolition order that the county had placed on the property. In due time if the owners did not begin to correct the problems by submitting plans and permits, the department was in its right to demolish the existing house and leave the bill for the owner to pay. The county would then place a lien on the property in order for them to recuperate their monies.
Rausa Builders, Corp. was hired to correct all the code compliance violations and the unsafe structure case. This was considered a full rehabilitation construction project. We demolished the rear illegal addition and rebuilt the rear envelope of the existing structure. In this demolition there were two illegal bathrooms and one bedroom utilized as an efficiency. We re-wired the complete residence with new electrical wires, electrical panel and meter box. We replaced the water supply lines as well as the cast iron sewer lines that were exposed after demolition. The bathrooms and kitchen were completely remodeled. A new Central Air Conditioning Sysytem was installed with all new duct work. All the windows and entry doors were installed new with hurricane storm panels. The homes old shingle roof was replaced with a new clay tile roof and a circular asphalt driveway was created. The complete residence was cement stucco as the existing exterior walls are from frame structure. The complete interior floor was enforced with new 1/4″ tile backer and was completely tiled throughout.
This home addition required some demolition of the original structure in order to add more entertaining area, a bedroom and bath. It added an extra 800 sq. ft. of living area to the residence and required new block walls, a concrete foundation, a new roof and interior framework.
