Hoping to add to the architectural beauty of the high-end residential Anaheim Hills neighborhood, the O’Connor family wanted to construct a home with cost-saving, energy efficient features that required very little maintenance. To meet these needs, the owners selected the Tilt-Up method because the concrete would eliminate the presence of termites and other bugs, as well as increase fire resistance.
The easy application of Rapid Set Wunderfixx allowed for an exceptional finish. Wunderfixx was utilized to treat the majority of the exterior surface. Because many of the interior concrete walls were left unpainted, Wunderfixx was used to maintain an unseen transition from the raw panels to the patched surface.
To enhance the architectural aesthetics, a Styrofoam trim and thin block was applied. A rustic look was created by exposing lift inserts and uncoated, tapered columns. Rustic elements were achieved in the interior of the home by exposing duct work and trusses.
Although neighbors had concerns regarding the use of a crane to construct gray concrete panels for a home in their neighborhood, once complete, the community was pleased with the luxurious 7,200-square-foot custom home.
