The steel for the planters around the front steps are going in. In addition to looking good, they are necessary for safety so there is less than a three foot drop around the stairs.
The barn door to the storage room have been painted.
The window tinting has been applied to key windows in the master baths.
A mirror has been added to the upstairs master closet.
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 steel work has started in the house for both the interior and exterior. On the inside, the fireplace wrapping is installed.
The staircase railing has also started.
On the exterior, the planters and trellis installing on the roof top deck has also started.
In addition, lots of other general progress. The garage door has been installed.
The footing for the staircase leading up to the front door has also started.
We should be tracking for completion no later than end of April. We can’t wait to move in!
The floating staircases were encased with wood this week.
The stair lighting was also installed.
Light fixtures continue to be installed. Here is the pendant in the guest house.
The tub in the upstairs master in finally in place.
All the AC units continue to be installed and hooked up.
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.
We finally have stairs going all the way up to the second floor.
All of the showers have been sealed in prep for the tile.
The exterior brick has also been delivered.
Things continue to progress and I’m looking forward to the installation of the windows in the main living and kitchen area.
One big item that started last Friday was getting in the large steel staircase.
They got half installed Friday and they will be working on the rest this week. It will be nice to soon have a staircase to get to the 2nd floor instead of having to climb up the back.
