Week 91 – Site Cleanup

All the rain in Austin has kept the site pretty muddy but we’ve been mostly rain free for the past week which gave the crews some time to get in and try and cleanup

You can tell it is still pretty sloppy but this is 100% better than it was a week ago.

The painters are continuing to apply the stain to the interior and exterior cypress. The picture doesn’t do it justice, but the slight whitewash really mutes the yellows in the wood and nicely blends into the other materials.

Week 88 – Painting Prep

I haven’t posted in a few weeks as the work going on as mainly been cabinet finish out and that doesn’t make for any great pictures.

Painting prep is now in full swing and the house is all taped up and being primed. The MDF wall that goes up all the way to the 2nd floor is primed.

Painting will continue for the next few weeks. It is a long process, but I’m looking forward to seeing the end results.

Week 81 – Landscape Grading

Now that all the scaffolding is down, the builder was able to get a bobcat into the backyard and do additional grading on the backyard which really gives you a better sense of the space.
