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 upper part of the driveway has cured and looks great.
The wood is being installed over the fireplace.
All the glass has been installed in the bathrooms.
The stove finally arrived has been installed.
It also looks like the garage door has been installed but since it was left open I didn’t want to try closing it in case it wasn’t final yet.
The wood floors are also being prepped for finishing so that will start next week as well.
We have been in India for the past few weeks so it was fun to see all the progress made while out of the country.
We arrived today to find the driveway pour started.
After navigating around pour, we found all the steel planters installed in the auto-court.
The front door hardware has been installed.
The wallpaper has been applied in the powder room.
Kitchen appliances have been installed with the exception of the stove which is currently lost in transit somewhere.
Mirrors have been installed in the bathrooms.
The outdoor kitchen appliances have also been installed.
Things are progressing nicely and we will hopefully be moving soon.
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.
