let the countdown begin!
We are just weeks away from moving into our newly remodeled Office on Main! We are so anxious to see it completed; we have spent countless hours working with Tiek Design Group to design and build the perfect space for our growing business. Inspections are under way, and the next step is to pick out the furniture and decor! We wanted to share a few more photos of our progress before the big reveal - it's just crazy to see where it began, where we are now, and knowing where we're headed.
It has been so cool to be able to preserve some of the original elements of this building! We talked in another post about finding this awesome brick underneath the plaster on the walls, but we were also able to keep some of the original hardware. We just soaked and polished these pieces before reattaching them to the doors.
Interested in seeing more of the progress photos of our new office?

40 W Main Street
It is always amazing to see the progress of a major remodel. This home has been such a treat to work on so far. If only photos could do the progress justice!
Don't miss the Finished Product!
With just weeks left before this home is complete, we can't wait to reveal the finished product! We didn't leave a single part of this home untouched.
We just love working with Tiek Design Group. The charming owners of this home really thought through the small details, Tiek perfected their ideas and put them on paper, and our talented team at Beehive executed it, and we just love how it turned out!
Attention to detail
The homeowner selected this particular design in the transom to tie everything together - she said it reminded her of the shape of the knobs on the range, the cabinet knobs, and the tile in the laundry room. We love how even the smallest details like these just pull everything together and really polish the finished product!

We just wanted to share a few quick photos of the progress we're making on our new office in Lehi! If you didn't see the before photos, hop on over to see those first! First of all, our "coming soon" sign is officially up and that makes things feel so real!
The framing is coming along, and everything is falling perfectly into place. We can't wait to call this home!
It's always so fun to see a remodel start to finish! We still have a few months left on this project, but it is progressing so nicely, we just had to share! As always, Tiek Design Group has done a beautiful job with the architectural design of this home.
before (during) and after
Before: This is right after we installed the brand new front door. Even before paint and stain, the transom and sidelights added so much character to the home! You can see here the red brick and stucco that were originally used all over the home.
After: We painted the brick white, gorgeous white paneling replaced the stucco, and that tongue and groove soffit really pulls everything together.
Before: This side of the house was originally gray stucco - here, we had just finished adding hardie board and building the pergola over the three car garage.
After: Clean, white hardie (Benjamin Moore Designer's White), new Coachman garage doors, and perfectly contrasting sconces. The designers and home owner put a lot of time and thought into finding the perfect fixtures for this part of the home.
Before: All new Amsco Renaissance windows, hardie board is being installed all over the exterior, and the decks are being built. You can also see preparations for TWO more pergolas!
After: Gorgeous white hardie, TWO decks, two more pergolas, and this grand staircase is going to be breathtaking when it's done! Also, we can't go without commenting on the white grout in the stone chimney.
This tongue and groove is actually under the decks!
Some of our favorite details are on this deck! We debated whether to use mahogany or ipe, and we think you'll agree that ipe was the way to go.
And how could we forget the best design for a doggie door we've ever seen? The addition of the crown molding was just brilliant!

Mid-November and we are FINALLY seeing snow here in Utah! It's time to start pulling out boots and scarves, lighting the fire place, drinking hot cocoa, turning up the Christmas tunes (unless you're a Scrooge), and prepping your home for the freezing temps to come. This can feel overwhelming for some, so we'll stick to the basic necessities to keep things simple and completely doable.
1. remove hoses from outdoor spigots
This is way too often overlooked! It's such a small task, but neglecting to store your hoses during the winter can result in thousands of dollars-worth of damage. When the hose is connected to your house, it makes it impossible for the spigot to drain completely. The water can build up and freeze, causing the pipes to burst. This IS as bad as you imagine! Burst pipes, flooded house, horrible Christmas!
2. Clean out gutters
The fall is AMAZING, and how fun is it to play in the colorful crunchy leaves? Well, those same leaves collect in your gutters and cause things to clog. When precipitation can't reach the downspout, moisture can get up under the shingles and - you guessed it - cause a lot of EXPENSIVE damage. Spend a Saturday afternoon clearing the gutters, check for clogs in the downspout, and maybe while you're up there you can add a few strings of Christmas lights!
*While cleaning out your gutters, double check for damage/cracks where water might leak through.
3. furnace maintenance
You do NOT want to be stuck in a Utah winter with a broken furnace. It isn't uncommon for people to be snowed in for days at a time, and as cozy as the fireplace might seem I bet you'd miss your working furnace real quick. Hire a certified HVAC professional to do a routine inspection/maintenance yearly. I promise, it's worth the $70 - $150!
4. Re-caulk around windows and doors
This one might take some time, but totally worth it to keep the cold out of your house and your utility bills down. Cold air sneaks in through even the smallest of cracks. You can hire a professional, or DIY this one - just make sure you're thorough!
5.inspect your fireplace
This isn't for every home, but it was way too important not to make our list of essentials! If you have a vented fireplace, the chimney needs to be cleaned and inspected for leaks before the season starts. And homes with ventless fireplaces are not off the hook, these need to be maintained too!
Don't let yourself be overwhelmed by the idea of winter prep! Every small thing helps the cause. Lists like these can go on for days - you can really never be too safe - but don't miss these 5 tasks before we see a Utah winter in full-force. Then you'll have the peace of mind to enjoy snowball fights, snow men, snow angels, and ice skating all season long.
We are so excited to announce that Beehive State Builders has found a new home! We have officially closed the deal on this cute little place in Lehi.
