Below the desk is a secret passage to the underside of the stairs where we installed an LED light for the kids to hide. The passage was a bit big maybe bc I fit through with no problem. A custom bunk for the little boy. We installed a reading light and switch above the bed. The living room.

Building in Fairbanks, Alaska in 2014 is very busy and our clients are thrilled with the work. We started the work with some savage electrical presumably owner constructed work.
We ended up in the electrical because it turned out this home has no vapor barrier and the tub actually got ice build up in winter. See more about Fairbanks, Alaska vapor barrier repair.
On Wednesday, I did some paint touch up to finish this small bathroom remodel. The tile work really adds a touch of class to this house. See more about non conventional bathroom remodels we have done in Fairbanks, Alaska and more of our bathroom tile work.
Also on Wednesday, Brain and I made some Alaska birch window sills and this custom laminate counter. See more of our Alaska birch window sills and custom laminate counters. On Thursday we added 10″ of cellulose insulation to this roof bringing it up to an r-70. Some long-term savings on heating oil for this Fairbanks, Alaska home. On Friday we demoed the deck and siding on the west side of this custom home I built in 2005. We are putting an addition on this Fairbanks, Alaska custom home over the next few weeks. See more about how I built this Fairbanks, Alaska custom home.

While working out in Ester a while back, we did a couple day jobs back to back. This one was simply to put snow brakes up to protect the gutters and stacks. We also widened the opening around the stack to meet fire code. Many Fairbanks, Alaska homes violate building and fire codes. We do our best to make sure your existing home is brought up to standards.

On this deck Straight Ahead Construction used Lowes “Top Choice” composite decking. A bit more affordable than some other brand names but it was more a color preference by the owner. We are dedicated to detail.
This is the two story floor plan for a 1526 square foot home in Fairbanks, Alaska. The exterior walls will be 18″ thick giving a very high r value for insulation.

After the cabinet install, we moved on to tile on the kitchen floor and jatoba wood flooring in the main living area.
We added a splash of tile for the piles of shoes from the piles of kids this family has!
