Recent Construction Projects by Galow Homes

Galow Homes (C)

This study was constructed as a second-floor addition over a garage for homeowners in Dutchess County, New York. A ten-foot cathedral ceiling adds height and spaciousness while generous use of windows assured that the room feels open and spacious while also permitting useful solar gain during winter months.

Walls on two sides of the structure are cantilevered and angled to add interest to the design and to prevent a "boxy" feel to the addition, as you can see in our page top photo that gives an outside view of this same structure.

We provide turn-key construction services including all phases of design and build. For clients who wish a more extensive involvement in their project, we also encourage active client participation in all phases of the construction project. For this project the clients made their own custom choice and layout of the beautiful hickory flooring shown in our photo.

A standing seam metal roof installation is shown here on a simple shed-roof design that we installed for clients who did not want to face future roofing replacement during the life of their building. We like this roof material over foam-insulated structures where a cathedral ceiling affords maximum interior space.

We have extensive experience with all types of residential roofing materials.

Special Construction Projects

I learned from my dad to work on every job to do my absolute best. There are no "special projects in the sense that one would leave someone else with less care and attention than merited. But indeed some of our projects involve unusual situations.
