Bricks Look Sharp!

Now that the bricklayers are all set up they move along quite quickly.

First few bricks getting laid

We decided to go with a stack brick bond rather than the more
traditional offset brick pattern. This will give the homes a more
contemporary feel.

Bricks on site

11 cubes of bricks waiting for the bricklayers......

Drywall Drop Off

The boom truck has arrived with the drywall for the homes.


The "stringer-less" stairs are being installed. These stairs will be
an incredibly beautiful focal point for the homes.

Low E = High Savings!

The windows are filled with "low e argon gas" which equates to less
heat and cold transfer through the windows. This means less heating
and cooling needed for the houses. Less heating and cooling saves
energy and in a world with raising energy prices a lot of money will
be saved.

Window glass on site

The glass has arrived for our beautiful aluminum framed windows. It
will be installed today.

Mmmmm.... Galvalume...

Now, isn't this so much better than traditional siding? This is a view from the backyard, looking up.

The Roof.... The Roof...

The rough carpenters are putting their tools away since they are finished.  You can definitely get a feel for the contemporary style of these homes now.
