Stairway to Heaven

Yeah, it’s a little trite, but in this case, it’s literal.  Now that the upper deck of the main level is in place, fabrication of the upper level has begun in earnest.  A temporary construction stairway was just built built to enable the work to continue skyward.  The upper level of 60 Bragg Hill will define three bedrooms including the master suite, a laundry room and an open sitting area.  As shown in recent posts on this web site, the view from the upper level is breathtaking, something that will take us a little time to get used to. The build up of the Insulated Concrete Forms and rebar will continue into the trees and link into the existing concrete wall system.
