We’ve had a lot of rain in the past two weeks that has slowed down the new bridge over the dry creek. It is finally getting formed up and will hopefully get poured next week.
Luckily it hasn’t slowed down the floating front steps.
The staircase railing wood has been added and it really looks amazing.
The vent hood cover was finally installed and was really the last item in the kitchen remaining.
The sliding barn doors to the storage area has also been installed.
Landscaping will also start next week depending on the weather. More rain is in the forecast so we will be fighting that as we try and get this house finished.
After a long stretch of dry weather, Austin had a large amount of rain which has put a damper on the new bridge. This is a video just after the rain storm. You can see the water flowing quickly in the creek bed.
This is a few days later. The water is not as high but still flowing.
The install for the upper deck has started and is almost complete.
On the interior, installation of the wood on the staircase has begun. The wood and steel combination really looks great.
We have more rain in the forecast today but hopefully less than half and inch and it is supposed to be a fast moving storm. We need it to dry out to get this bridge complete.
The existing bridge over the dry creek bed is being removed and replaced to allow water to flow more freely during large rain events. The initial work has been started to pour the footings and then the bridge will be removed.
Landscaping and grading continue. The planters have been filled with rock for drainage.
The upper terrace continues to be graded and soil brought in. Holes have been dug for the fruit trees.
Here is a shot showing the bed around the back of the garage where the citrus trees will go.
The screen door has been installed on the patio.
The wine cooler has also been installed in the pantry which was the last major appliance.
We may get some much needed rain today, but next week should be dry and will allow the entry steps to be poured as well as the bridge.
