Bluff Neighborhood Construction Report 1-31-16

A balmy day today encouraged me to take more photos than usual.

308 N. Bayview Street

This mailbox post is new. Although you can’t tell it from this photo, the post itself is grey, to match the house, and the housing around the mailbox is white. The shape of the roof matches the tent-shaped chimney cap.

This leisure arrangement is not new, but conditions lately have not been conducive to enjoying it (translation: it’s been too cold for me to want to stop briskly walking in order to photograph it).

351 N. Summit Street

Workers were present yesterday spraying foam insulation in the garage, upstairs and down.

It appears that fiberglass batts will be used in the house proper.

111 Magnolia Avenue

It appears that the driveway and this walkway will be poured concrete.

The courtyard has been completed; the covered walkway connecting the garage and the house is raised above the courtyard level.

Although the exterior is not complete, there are signs that move-in has begun. This open door shows the foyer of the garage apartment.

Shutters have been installed in all the windows of the house, and a peek through the shutters of the laundry room showed laundry equipment and piles of laundry. Since there was a car parked in front of the house, I beat a hasty retreat.

Returning today, I found further signs of habitation but no signs of current occupancy, so I ventured to snoop further.

These views of the back courtyard show the completed back entry porch and a nearly completed outdoor kitchen on the porch of the garage apartment.

120 Kiefer Avenue

Remember this house? After six months of inactivity, something appears to be happening. So far the only signs are a portable toilet, a dumpster, and a building permit, but we will continue to monitor the site.
