Week 110 – Rain

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.

Week 108 – Steel Work

The steel work has started in the house for both the interior and exterior. On the inside, the fireplace wrapping is installed.

We should be tracking for completion no later than end of April. We can’t wait to move in!

It also seemed like electricity was on at least partially in the house as a lot of the lights worked. All the smoke detectors were installed as well and I don’t know if they put batteries in right before the move in date, but they were all chirping.
