It’s exciting to see the daily progress being made on ADC’s new project—a beautiful dream home- on the steep shoreline of Lake Tahoe. Designed by the California and Nevada Architectural Firm Elise Fett and Associates, the future floors that will nestle into the decomposed granite hillside (formerly housing a depression era summer cottage) are easily visible on the imagination.
Approaching the ADC job site, one can see Craig Price Plumbing and Jeff W. Maxhimer Excavation hard at work. Contrary to popular building understanding, the plumber is a part of the building process from the very beginning. Before the foundation is poured, a ‘lift station’ hole must be dug and the lift station very carefully set down into the depths of the mountainside. A lift station is a vastly important part of the building process as the lift station does the dirty work of grinding up toilet waste and pumping it back up the hill and into the community sewer system.
Craig Price Plumbing will wrap up the lift station installation and then the Tatarek Concrete Construction trucks will arrive to pour the foundation of this ADC built four-tier home. But the plumber will return, again and again, an integral part of the building process from the very beginning to the last faucet installation in the final stages of this endeavor.
