We are down to finishes, with flooring being wrapped up this week & tile starting this week. Our goal is to have the house done in 2.5 weeks & then landscape/hardscape will be completed 2.5 weeks after that. Fingers crossed we get a quick offer once we place on the market.


Down to finishes. Cabinets installed. Flooring and tike starting next week. Targeting to complete house less landscape in 4 weeks.


Dry wall is being hung. Finish trades are lining up to start work soon.


Project moving quickly. Should have house completed in 9 weeks.


Framing will be done this week, ran into a curve ball with the stairs. Over the next 4 to 6 weeks we are going to place effort to “pre-sale” the house, thus we will have the house on the MLS during this time period and show property on apt basis.


Framing is 90% done. Ruff electrical, plumbing and AV are about 70% done. Roof and dry wall are the next trades to be on site.


Framing 80% done, ruff electrical, plumbing and AV start Monday the 4th.


Pescas, demo & concrete work is 100% done. Pool is 80% done. Framing is 55% done, thus ruff electrical, plumbing and AV will start in 1 week.


Demo done
Framing 25% done
Pool 50% done
Other ruff trades will start in 3 to 4 weeks
Once framing is done, we plan to start show the house off market so we can pre-sale it.


– Demo is complete
– Pool is dug
– Concrete work is 80% done
– Underground plumbing 50% done
– Framing starts this week


Demo is complete, concrete work is about 60% done. Framing to start soon.


Pescas permits were pulled Tuesday and we’ve begun demo and concrete work.


We have all departments signed off except for 1 which usually handles the building permit issuance, we are also waiting for final approval for the Right of Way permit – something that has been chronically delayed by the city to resolve that is contingent on the building permit being issued.


Pretty much the same here, just waiting for permits. We are down the last 10 comments from the city.


We have about 18 more comments to respond and correct with the city. We hope to have permits by first week of 2016.


Not much new hear…..still waiting for permits. Everything else is set and ready to go. Fingers crossed we obtain permits within 2 weeks.


Arch met with the city today, there was an issue with the setbacks, so there will be a delay in permits. Should have them early Dec.


– Permits are due any day now.
– Thus we will break ground shortly there after.
– Construction rehab refi loan is completed and we were able to do a 50/50 non-dutch interest on it, thus saving us money


We have resubmitted to the city per the comments received. We should have permits in 2 to 3 weeks. Refinance will be completed end of next week or early the following week.

Both projects will be starting around the same time, thus we will have some good economy of scales for cost savings.
