Slowly but surely, the hardwood floors and bathroom tile work continues.
The upstairs master is very close to completion.
The hardwood floor installation upstairs has also started.
The limestone outdoor patio is compete and has been grouted.
The limestone at the front door entry way is also started.
I’m hopeful that all the tile and floor work will be done by next week!
Some more progress was made before the holidays.
Hardwoods started in the guest house.
Good progress was made on the tile in the upstair master bathroom.
Hardwood floors are mostly installed in the downstair areas. Sanding and staining will happen near the very end of the project.
The limestone lueders are also being installed in the screened patio area.
Tile work also started in the upstairs master. I’m really excited to see how these turn out.
They also started the cap work on the exposed concrete on the exterior of the house. The original plan was board formed concrete, but the conditions on the day of the pour (100+ degrees) made it difficult to achieve. So we are going for a smooth finish and a lot of it will be hidden by dirt and plantings anyway.
Hardwood floor installation has started. The rooms have been floated first and then a layer of plywood is added before the hardwoods are installed.
All the AC units are also being installed.
Hardwoods continue next week as well as finishing up the bathroom tile.
Austin is about to get 3-4 inches of rain today so I ran by the house at lunch to take some photos since it is very difficult to get into the house after a heavy rain with all the clay making the uphill drive way very slick.
The pads for the AC units have been poured and you can even see some of the exterior light sconces have been installed.
They are also preparing an area on the outside of the flex room so people exiting have a small landing area instead of just lawn.
The metal trellis between the main house and guest house has been completed. There is a solid piece of metal between the houses for rain protection but then it is open after that.
The plumber has also started installing fixtures where the tile work is complete. Here is Akash’s room with the shower/tub fixtures installed.
There were also a lot of little finishes like electrical sockets and light switches being installed everywhere. Depending on how much rain, I may try and make it out Sunday depending on how muddy things still are.
Tiling work continues in the guest house. We went with a concrete tile in a starburst pattern which looks great.
The downstairs master has the infinity drain installed and the tile work is done around the toilet room.
Speaking of toilets, we’ve got lots in boxes!
Fans have also been installed in rooms.
I remembered to take a picture of the installed solar panels and all the electrical panels on the outside of the house.
We are hoping they will start the tile work on the upstairs master this week because we really want to see the tile on the wall.
