Remodeling Projects

We have been privileged to work with many homeowners, some with multiple projects, to bring their visions to life. Here are some of these projects.

A recent Sebago Lake lakefront cottage remodel

Delar General Contracting was asked by these owners to perform a complete renovation and addition to an existing property they own on Big Sebago Lake in Raymond, Maine.  The property was located within the 100 foot setback from the lake which required a property line survey and location of all setbacks.  They were granted a one-time expansion of 30% cubic volume for the property.  Delar GC performed all of the mathematical calculations along with completion of several forms to comply with all Town of Raymond and State of Maine regulations.  Once the Town approved the calculations, our architectural designer went to work.

She developed several 3D conceptual models to illustrate what the proposed residence would look like.  Once the models were approved, a video walk through was created to provide a clearer view of the space.  Half of the property was demolished and with the assistance of a licensed structural engineer, Delar GC constructed the addition without interior load bearing walls.  This means that three of the ceilings were easily vaulted to create more space within the bedroom and bathroom areas.

Delar GC performed all of the foundation, framing, electrical, plumbing, heating, window, door, drywall, painting, flooring, and finished carpentry work.  The owner, David Maurice worked with all of the trades personnel to insure quality installations. Delar GC also custom built seven pieces of furniture including vanities, linen closets, closets for two bedrooms and stereo cabinets.  Also included was an outside shower, oil tank enclosure, a deck with stainless steel cable rails, and a loft coupled with a rolling library ladder.

The project was started in early December and completed in early June.  Work was done throughout the winter so as the project could be completed on time.

Here is what the owner had to say about working with David Maurice and Delar General Contracting:

“Delar just finished up a major remodel at our home on Sebago Lake. From the initial consult to the last day on the job David has been an absolute pleasure to work with. Professional, and thorough he always had quality first on his mind. We will never forget seeing him and his helper Dave building our roof system in below zero temperature back in February, on a Saturday! We can’t imagine having had anyone else realize our vision. Folks may not realize the importance of a general contractor. We equate him to a conductor, always on stage directing his musicians. Without a good GC your project will not run smoothly. If you want someone who truly listens to you and is willing to try new things in an effort to realize your vision, Delar General Contracting should be your number one choice.”
