Hope Construction News

When David Carpenter was a student at Northern Arizona University, he often wondered why restaurants were so far away from his dorm. Now as the owner and project manager of Hope Construction, he is bringing a buffet of dining options within a comfortable walking distance of the NAU campus.

Carpenter is developing a restaurant row on the 400 block of San Francisco Street, just south of Butler Avenue. The block’s anchor tenant (at 409 San Francisco Street) is The Mayor, the fifth restaurant of the Plated Projects dining group, which owns Taverna, Busters, Oakmont, and the Fieldhouse. “We decided to come to South San Francisco after hearing about David’s vision for the block. We are excited about being part of the revitalization that is happening down there,” says Ryan Field, one of the restaurant owners.

Sandwiches, burgers and childhood classics (with a modern, homemade twist) define The Mayor’s menu. A showstopper on the restaurant’s back patio is the shiny 1971 Airstream “Land Yacht” that has been converted into a pop-up bar, which will feature eight beers on tap. The Airstream is a bow to the days when Flagstaff was a stop on fabled Route 66. Other throwbacks include the restaurant décor—striped couches, shag rugs and a skee ball video game—and a playlist that includes classics from Fleetwood Mac, Kiss, Marvin Gaye and T-Rex as well as sitcom theme songs.

“The Mayor contains all the best elements of a tremendous good time in a good friend’s home,” Field explains. The restaurant’s grand opening is in December.
Its been a long time coming, a home in Flagstaff in which every single part incorporated is made in USA! We did the extensive research and with all of our subcontractors and vendors on board, we're making it happen! The project has been started and is expected to be finished and occupied in mid May. Please follow us and share your comments as we show you weekly progressions until the project is completed!
The Leroux duplex is now complete and the tenants have moved in! We just had our final walk through and checklist completion review with Amanda from the Coconino County Sustainabilty Program. The building is rated advanced, which is the highest rating.The Leroux duplex won a Coconino County sustainability award and we invite all you to check out the finished product pictures! This three story ten bedroom structure took approximately three months to complete and is beautiful inside and out! As always, we appreciate your comments and please follow us on our next up and coming projects!
The project is nearing completion as we are now setting all the cabinets and installing all switches and receptacles. The driveway in the alley is getting formed and will be poured soon. Exterior painting is underway as well. Thanks for following our progress on the Leroux duplex and all of us here at Hope Construction appreciate your comments!
We've been moving along on Leroux quite rapidly! Spray foam is done, MEP is very close to being finished as well as exterior siding. We'll wrap up this week by finishing exterior siding, the front porch and get all three floors rocked, as well as some odds and ends finish work. Amanda, with the Coconino Sustainable Building Program, has made her second visit to the site and is excited to approve 419 S Leroux. We encourage you to keep following our progress and post your comments!
Hello friends.

The Leroux project is really moving along. All framing is now complete, roof trusses have been set and sheeting is done. Now, we're moving on to MEP and starting to Tyvek the exterior surface area and prep for siding. All of us here at Hope Construction encourage you to follow our progress and post your comments for the Leroux duplex!
Hello friends!

We're all hard at work on the Leroux duplex. First floor framing is now done and the second floor joists are being set. Then we'll repeat the process for the second floor and on up to the third. Also, the concrete has been poured and we're almost ready for the trusses. We encourage you to follow our progress and post your comments!
Hello friends!

The Leroux duplex is rising fast. Over the last two weeks the slurry was poured, reinforced foundation was set and the CMU stem wall is now completed. Framing will be started soon. We encourage you to follow our progress as the duplex continues to rise!
Hello friends!

We just broke ground on our new project, the Leroux Duplex. Today excavators are removing site obstructions and the building corners are being staked out. We encourage you to follow our progress and share your comments throughout the duration of the project!
We are happy to announce that the Clark Residence was completed right around the 4th of July! Everything finished smoothly and the homeowners are happy to be living in their new house! Here are some photos to see the finished product!
Here are a few progress shots of the house. Flooring is being installed along with the countertops and plumbing fixtures so just the final touches are left! We will be done in 2 weeks so more pictures to follow then! Hope Construction

Spray foam insulation: In the Clark residence we used advanced framing & filled the wall cavities with cellulose insulation and then used spray foam on the floors over the garage and crawlspace, and in the attic. We lose a lot of heat energy out the floor & roof, and not as much out of the surface of the walls, so spending more on the spray foam in the lids will pay off quickly. Pictures to come of the exterior - it is fully painted, the decks are looking great too! Until next time, Hope Construction.

The past few weeks have been busy for our crew at Hope Construction. The Tyvek is almost complete and the siding is going up fast. The windows are flashed as well. Window flashing keeps the windows tight and acts as a secondary drainage point if anything should leak. Until next time, Hope Construction.
We have made great progress the past 2 weeks. The house is framed & dryed in. The top photo shows the house getting ready for roof shingles. Tim decided to do a bonus room on the 3rd story (see 2nd photo)and it has amazing views of the peaks (see 3rd photo)! The last photo shows the cathedral living room ceiling. Until next time...Hope Construction!
This week we made great progress and the roof is getting framed in. The trusses were raised with a crane (see picture above). Next steps include waterproofing & drying in the building. Pictures to follow...Hope Construction
This week the walls are going up & we are framing the 2nd floor! It is really starting to look like a house & to think...it has only been 3 weeks since we were excavating & found the ancient bones! Hope Construction
The framing has begun and we are making great progress. Luckily the weather is cooperating with us this winter...besides the freezing temperatures last week! Stay tuned for more pictures...Hope Construction.
We have made great progress this week...the footings are done and the foundation wall is being built. Lumber will be delivered next week & the framing will begin! On Thursday, Channel 12 news came to the site to do a story on the prehistoric bones on the 5 o'clock news. Click here to see the story!
On Wednesday when we were digging, the project came to a complete halt when it appeared that human remains were found on the site while digging the footings! The job site was briefly a crime scene with over 15 police officers and detectives roaming around for hours, which then turned into an archaeological dig. Initial indications from the teeth (as seen in the picture to the left) were that the bones were 500-1000 years old. However, the state archaeologist for the Museum of Northern Arizona confirmed that they are at least 2000 years old! Today a baby skeleton was found near the other bones! It was an exciting week and a good history class for all of us at Hope Construction! We did get the clear from the state to keep working and we are diligently pursuing the dig with all eyes open!
