Lanni Construction, Inc. completes an interior stairway renovation for an executive home:

We are featuring an interior renovation project on our Lanni Construction, Inc. blog for a St. Augustine Beach executive home where the existing railing wall of the interior stair tower to the second story, made of drywall, made the owner feel enclosed in his own home.  Our client wanted to open up the area and bring more light and view-way into the home.  Local architect Martin Gould was contracted to design the project and specified the construction.  Being a St. Augustine general contractor, Lanni Construction, Inc. was contracted to provide the renovation construction services.  The total project time took 5 days.  Once completed, the Client invited us over to tell us how pleased they were with the workmanship of the project and the cleanliness during and after construction.  As a result of the profession work we provided the Client, we have now been contracted to design and build a new master bathroom for the home.

Removal of a support column

This is a simple project Lanni Construction, Inc. was hired for to remove an existing support column of a single family home that visually obstructed the view from the rear of the home and structurally obstructed the efficient use of space on the back porch.  The project included the removal of the existing support column, reinforcement of the structural load beam and finishing the outside materials to match the original stucco of the home.


Lanni Construction, Inc. completes a small project for The Tasting Room

At Lanni Construction, Inc., we want to feature a project we recently completed for our friends Michael and Stephanie Lugo at The Tasting Room where we installed a new doorway for their restaurant.  The Tasting Room is a fine dining restaurant located in the heart of historic downtown St. Augustine, FL.  Lanni Construction, Inc. was hired to install a new doorway that leads from the inside of the restaurant dining area to the outside dining patio.

The project initiated with the removal of the previous concrete block construction wall and debris and the build out of a new frame and threshold.  As you can see in the progression of pictures provided in the following gallery, we had to secure and construct a new door threshold, and install decorative French doors that were both safe and environmentally secure.

Bee Removal

Bee InfestationWe received a call from a Client to help them get back into their home. Of course we were very curious. She told us that there were bees swarming by her front door not letting her use that entrance. She said that she contacted several different exterminators but none of them kill bees. We set an appointment to go and see what we could do to help her. When we got there, bees were everywhere–but not aggressive at all. Ok so they were not Killer Bees. The “Honey Bees” were passive and we did NOT want to exterminate them. We contacted a local Bee Keepers Club in hopes that they might be able to remove them without harm. The Club was very happy to refer us to a member that can remove the bees and give them a happy home in a safe hive on their property. When we contacted the Bee Club member she came right over dressed in protective gear and with the proper equipment to remove the bees. We removed the T1-11 revealing a huge hive. It completely filled the space between the studs. The hive was 14.5″ wide and 72″ tall. The Bee Keeper used a knife to cut the honey comb out of the wall and then placed it into a large container. It took about 3 hours to remove all of the bees and hive. We paid her for her expenses involved in traveling to us and thanked her for rescuing the bees. Our client was very happy that we removed the bees and repaired her wall. Just another day and another satisfied Customer to add to our list. We checked with the Bee Keeper on the status of the bees and she told us: “They must be happy, their making honey”. We were pleased to save the bees and help our Client at the same time.

Structural wood rot repair due to water intrusion

At Lanni Construction, Inc., a St. Augustine based general contractor, one of our services we provide is repair to severe wood rot damage due to water intrusion.  We were recently contracted by a homeowner in the beach front subdivision of Sea Colony, located in St. Augustine Beach, FL, to repair and/or replace a badly damaged 20’ structural support beam.

The problem resulted from a second floor porch that allowed water to leak into the 20’ long structural beam supporting the second floor porch and cement tile roof.  Since the beam was completely encased in stucco and cementitious trim, it retained the water that drained into the encasement like a goldfish bowl being unable to drain.  As you can see, the beams soaked up the water and became completely decayed over time.  The culprit was that the deck was not properly waterproofed around the columns allowing water to freely enter the beam cavity.

The challenge for us is to now stabilize the roof and porch of this home.  The 20’ triple LVL beam rests on top of the columns of the first floor with the second floor columns resting on the top of the support beam.  Please check back soon with a current update of this project and more photo’s showing our completed work.
