Hacienda del Sol is another home designed by Casas del Oso Luxury Homes under construction in Mirabel slated for completion in January 2013. This month we are working on “finishes” and beginning the landscaping. Mirabel like most of the neighborhoods in North Scottsdale has a requirement that the projects be fenced and that the fence is screened which obstructs the view. The fence must remain until the exterior of the home is completed. Last week we reached that point and began planting trees and best of all the fence came down. For us at Casas del Oso Luxury Homes it is like opening a present; the fence comes down and finally you can see really the home. It looks entirely different.
Here are some highlights of the past few weeks.
South side of house with fence.
South side of house after fence removal. This is “Old Adobe” stucco. It is
deliberately mottled and never has to be painted. The paver crew is installing
pavers around the pool & patio inside the block fence.
This is the first load of 48” & 60” box trees. The crane will take them off the
truck & set them in the predug holes for planting.
Same trees at the end of the day – planted.
Freshly planted Saguaro in front of courtyard. The bracing will remain for several
months. Tile crew is working on the talavera tile around the courtyard gate
Mirabel requires a sample board with the exterior finishes; stucco, paint & stain
color, window sample, roof tile and any architectural finishes. This remains up
through out construction.
Traditional Mexican decorative groin brick ceiling. The windows are covered
with a protective material hence the darkness of the room.
Saltillo floors are installed but not sealed. Work is continuing on the tile
backsplash and on the hood details. Appliances are coming in 2 weeks.
