Bluff Neighborhood Construction Report 3-27-16

Not a lot to report today. Although the sun has come out now, it was pouring rain all morning when I would have gone out. Fortunately, I took a few photos yesterday.

252 N. Bayview Street

I didn’t go inside, but I suspect the roof (covered with Tyvek but not shingles) was the main change. Interestingly, just along my walking route, three houses (not counting those under construction) have just gotten or are in the process of getting new roofs. The amount of rain we’ve had in the past couple of weeks can’t have made this easy, especially if the roof was already leaking!

351 N. Summit Street

Outside, the house now has a mailbox again.

Inside, most of the progress is in the drywall finishing. From this photo it is clear that I misspoke two weeks ago when I referred to “metal corner bead.”

The ladder leading to the “loft” upstairs has been (temporarily) relocated and this shelf/extension, with ornamental brackets, added.

This new addition in the utility room at the back of the garage indicates that the house will have geothermal heating/cooling. The equipment is a Grundfos Geolink ground loop pump, Model No. FCV2-GL.

111 Magnolia Avenue

The outdoor fireplace has been completed.

160 Fels Avenue

I see that none of my previous photos have clearly shown this front wall extension. It appears that the house will have a Mission-style appearance.

Inside, it appears that the past week has been devoted to plumbing. If the installation highlighted here is any indication, the kitchen will be at the front of the house, and the window over the sink will look out on the street.
