Lake Austin Build Along: Framing the Home

Lake Austin Build Along – Framing the home

Our Lake Austin project is well into the framing stage and the house is really beginning to take shape. The home has come a long way since our last blog entry, which covered the foundation pour. Now that framing is well underway, the home is really taking shape and a progress update is due.  This photo shows just how far this home has come since our last build along blog.

You can see that the second story framing is complete, the roof decking is in place, wall sheathing is up and windows and doors are being installed now.

Our project manager Adrian was kind enough to take a few minutes out of a busy day in the field to talk about what’s happening at the house and demonstrate some important waterproofing techniques we employ.  Here’s a quick video from the field.

The next step in this build will be mechanical, plumbing, electrical and low voltage installation. We hope you’ll check back in on this build soon.
