Project Description

The Challenges

“I stay friends with all my clients.”

JJ Costa Construction is truly a contractor’s contractor. We pride ourselves on being a first call contractor for colleagues across a variety of exacting and technical fields. They appreciate the completeness of our process, from estimate to billing; as well as our in-house millwork that allows us to fabricate almost anything to a fine level of detail with our own hands to ensure it fits the job perfectly.

Our work at the Pittman Residence is a great example of how J.J. Costa Co. can put these skills to great use to construct something to a very specific standard. The Pittmans requested us to build the dining, recreation, and entertainment additions to match the aesthetic of their home. Essentially, they needed an addition that didn’t look like an addition. Mr. Pittman, a civil contractor and engineer, built the original house himself in its signature, historic style.

This project carried with it an engineer’s level of reinforcement and detail below the surface and within the structure, which is not always appreciated nor visible by many, but apparent and much appreciated by craftsman and professionals in and surrounding the construction industry. Many years after the original construction, the Pittmans decided to add this perfect area to host dinners and entertain guests that did not involve their main house but something which could be both formal and casual, clean with simple and elegant details.

The project had no shortage of high end materials to match the historical look of the main house such as exquisite custom-milled Spanish cedar doors and a front entablature that were scaled to perfectly match the main house. Several knives were made for moulding production on the entablature as well as the custom casing inside. The space also features a historic looking tray ceiling and cherry flooring – precisely executed, detailed driven normality, to create this perfect space for the Pittmans to entertain friends, family, and colleagues. J.J. Costa Co. Even took on the task of constructing the lighted basketball court in the rear yard for additional outdoor entertainment.

It was an honor to be selected for such a meticulous project, and we take great pride in our work at the Pittman residence as well as our friendship with them.
