I had another top-to-bottom tour of the Show House yesterday, and construction manager Dave Moreno updated me on all of the progress. Here’s what’s going on as we speak:

            ●  All of the windows are in, and crews are in the act of sealing them with caulk. (A nice guy from Andersen Windows was overseeing the process in person when I was there.)

            ●  Masons are continuing to lay the limestone façade. Dave says this will take a long time, because 1) we’re talking about 1,300 square feet of limestone here, and 2) the guys have to install flashing first, to prevent water from seeping in between the cracks in the limestone. Flashing is especially crucial for the third-floor terrace, because that’s where the façade will be topped off with copping stone (a thicker cut of limestone).

            ●  Dave is giving walk-throughs of the site to the electrician, plumber, HV guy and  photovoltaic (i.e. solar-panel) specialist.

            ● Framers are finishing up the final details on all of the floors.

            ● The metal stairs and railings have been ordered and should arrive next week. (Once they’re approved, they’ll be installed.)
