Opera House RenovationTraverse City Opera House Restoration

The original Traverse City Opera House was constructed in 1890. Time had taken its' toll and much of the structure showed signs of deterioration. In 2006 Comstock Construction partnered with the City Opera House Restoration Group on restoration of the building. A new three story oak grand stair was constructed to greet visitors upon their entrance. A new oriel window was fabricated and installed to match the one that had been removed from the original structure. The restored Opera House now provides a comfortable venue for numerous community activities.

Grace Episcopal ChurchGrace Episcopal Church

After Comstock Construction renovated the church back in the mid 1980’s, Grace Episcopal Church once again called on Comstock Construction in 2004 to remodel their existing building and add approximately 8000 square feet. The result was a beautiful new worship space that is trimmed from roof to floor with honey stained pine and oak that makes you feel at peace and offers serenity. Included in the new worship space are a columbarium, baptismal font, and sacristy. Incorporating many items from the existing church into the new addition helped to make parishioners feel at home in their new facility.

In 2003 the City of Traverse City, Grand Traverse County, and Garfield Township officials with assistance from Traverse Area Recreation & Transportation Trails, had an idea to create a trail along the east side of Boardman Lake. After more than a year of planning, design, and construction the Boardman Lake Trail became a reality in 2005. Consisting of 20,000 lineal feet of 2x12 joists, 50,000 lineal feet of 2x6 decking, and 40,000 deck screws, the trail spans 2 miles long, 10 ft. wide, and extends from Hull Park behind the Traverse City Library to Medalie Park in Logans Landing.

Mackinaw Wind Power WindmillMackinaw Wind Power Windmill

Towering above the trees just southwest of the Mackinac Bridge, Bay Wind Power, Inc. installed two windmill generators that supply 4000 megawatts of power each to the local residents utilizing alternative power sources. Standing at 256 feet tall with blades that are 70 feet long the windmills can be seen as you cross the Mackinac Bridge coming from or going to Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. A little over two weeks to complete both windmills, it took 120 anchor bolts in each base to secure the windmills to the foundation.
