Below is a gallery of a Garage Addition with a new paver driveway in Coral Gables. The addition added an extra 700 sq ft to the home, including a Utility/Laundry Room. The new driveway added 500 sq ft of additional parking. The driveway pavers used were New Miami supplied by Gem Pavers in Medley Florida.
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.
This was a bank owned property which had a work without permit violation. The previous owners had installed the windows without permits which caused the building department to step in and give them a violation. Since this property was foreclosed and the bank took over they are now responsible for whatever violations were created by the previous owners. In order for the bank to sell this property to a financed buyer they needed to close the violation at hand.
Rausa Builders, Corp. was contracted to solve the code compliance issues, we in turn paid the open ticket of $510 and then applied for the new window and shutter permit required with the Miami Dade County Building Department. We then installed new 26 gauge shutters as required by Miami-Dade County code. Once all the shutters were installed and the windows installation was corrected we then pursued to call for our final inspections with the county. Once we finalized the permits the violation was requested to be closed and the bank was able to sell this to the new homeowner with no violations involved.
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.
