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.
Work on the exterior has started. The mesh for the stucco is being installed.
The long format black brick has also started installation.
It’s very exciting to see the exterior go up as it is starting to look more and more like an actual house.
Insulation inspection passed so drywall is next on the list.
Drywall was installed in the garage so that insulation could be sprayed in behind it.
All the rooms have giant piles ready to go.
It’s been a few weeks since the last post since work slowed down for the holidays and freezing temperatures.
A visit to the house today showed work continuing with all the plumbing and electrical. We also weren’t expecting to have the gas fireplace roughed in.
The waterproof membrane has been installed on the deck outside the upstairs master bedroom.
Now that the holiday season is over, we expect work to pick up again. Next meeting is with the audio visual contractor to discuss speaker and data drops throughout the house.
Hurricane Harvey hit the Texas coast this weekend and while Austin is well out of the main path, we’ve received lots of rains with periods of high gusty winds. I drove to the lot to see if we had any downed trees and luckily everything looked good.
The dry creek bed was flowing with water but wasn’t as high and fast as I thought it might be.
The top of the lot looked great.
Some of our neighbors across the street were not so lucky.
We are forecasted to have rain through Wednesday but the storm continues to weaken so hopefully the worst of the rain and wind is over.
