Week 7 – House Renderings

I went by the site on Saturday and not a lot of additional work as been done since the footing were poured. Most likely, the concrete needed to cure before they could do additional work. Fun Fact: Concrete doesn’t “dry”; it’s actually an exothermic reaction between the water and cement that causes it to get hard. That architectural engineering degree from UT finally has paid off!

So while there will most likely be work done during the week, here are some additional photos of the house as seen from the street.

One of main design considerations for this project was to respect the original footprint and incorporate some of the design elements from the original house. MF Architecture has done a fantastic job taking our requirements for our new house while respecting the original house and site location.

After many years wanting to start my very own hive, I'm finally taking the plunge and setting up my first urban hive in April.
