Two story all brick home with 4200 sf of living space with three car attached garage and covered front and side porches.
This new home is sited on a beautiful piece of property overlooking Deer Creek in Harford County. As is usually the case, there were some challenges to be overcome on this site. The biggest obstacle we faced was a stream that had to be crossed to access the new home location. We had to engineer and build a 30’ long bridge with a steel reinforced concrete road bed that would span across the stream. This involved not only building the bridge but also the steel reinforce concrete abutments on each side of the stream to support the bridge.
And this is no ordinary bridge. It had to support the weight of a fully loaded concrete mixer, which weighs in at about 40 tons. In addition, the fire department requires that it can support a 30 ton, fully loaded fire truck tanker, in the unlikely event of a house fire.
