One of the questions that we are asked frequently is “What are you working on?” I would like to share with you two custom homes that we are building this week. One is in the end stage and the other is just beginning. Coincidently, these are two of the most rewarding points in home construction.
The first home, a Spanish Revival located in Whisper Rock Estates and even though at first glance it appears complete it is actually a couple weeks away from a Casas del Oso final completion. If you look closely you will see that the windows still have their protective covering on them. We are in the last stages of fine tuning the finishes, testing the systems, and then we will have it cleaned until it sparkles. At this stage all of the hard work is over. Our clients know they will be moving in a matter of weeks and they see the results of all of the decisions they made during design & construction. It’s an exciting time for all of us.
The second home a Hacienda is located in Mirabel. This picture was taken on the 2nd day of framing. There are still months of construction ahead for this home; however, all of the structural decisions are made. The building that you see in the picture is the guest casita. The reason that we all love this phase so much is that this is the time the home goes from being a concept on paper to a building you can stand in. Now you see where the windows are and the actual views from those windows that were so important to you when you bought the lot; and like magic we captured those views. This is the stage that most of our clients fall in love with their home.
By the time we reach both of these stages we have been working together with our clients for months and we love sharing in their excitement and discovery of their home as it unfolds.
