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.
The central MDF wall has been painted and the bathroom cabinets have been stained.
For the bathrooms, the oak has been finished with a light stain.
Painting is wrapping up and the tile work is about to start along with the wood floors.
The painting saga continues. Most of the cabinet faces are now complete.
The MDF wall and kitchen cabinets have been primed with a tinted primer.
Rooms have been primed and waiting their final coat of paint.
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.
All the windows are being taped up to protect from any paint.
All the drawers are being removed to prime for painting.
Another shot of window protection and all cabinet drawers off for painting.
Painting will continue for the next few weeks. It is a long process, but I’m looking forward to seeing the end results.
It’s been a rainy week here but the interior work continues. The two noticeable changes this week or the built-in beds for the kid’s room and the guest suite.
The kid’s room has a queen bed with a twin trundle that will pull out.
The guest room has a king bed.
Cabinet installation is wrapping up and then prepping for paint starts.
Interior doors are being installed and a lot of the doors are flush with the walls.
The door into the downstairs master is flush with the dining room wall.
The doors to the hall coat closet and half bath are also integrated into the MDF walls.
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.
