Nina and I visited the jobsite last week to check on our progress and make color and finish selections. Jake is doing a great job really pushing the houses and keeping a close eye on quality. We are less than 30 days under construction and things are moving fast. The Landry is fully framed, the roof is on and electrical and HVAC is being installed. We will finish framing the Satchwell this week and the roof will go on Wednesday, or Thursday of this week. Not bad for our first 21 days!
If you haven’t been out to see these houses, you really should. The elevations are top notch and the views are amazing. We have real stone, brick and siding (upfront for color) exteriors. The brick on the Landry is coming out of Texas, and the grey brick for the Satchwell is on its way from Colorado. We were trying to avoid the same old red clay bricks that you see everywhere in town. I figured we had enough red clay in our front and rear yards why did we want a red clay brick! The rooms are all big and open and the 9′ walls and vaulted ceilings give everything a warm and inviting feeling. Everyday we get more excited to see the finished homes.
Rural water is coming down 1070 and should hit the subdivision anyday now. So these homes have not only rural water, but ONG (Gas), ATT (phone) and CVEC (electrical). You going to love the subdivision. We have the peacefulness of a country setting, but we are only 5.2 miles from I40 and Kickapoo.
I will be out next week to do a final walk on electrical and framing before we drywall. We set an aggressive goal to complete these homes in time for the holidays, and that looks clearly in reach. We have had a lot of interest and even a few showings, so you don’t want to wait too long. I expect them to be sold well before completion. I want to thank our incredible Team and Subcontractors for working hard everyday to make American Country Estates a success. We couldn’t do it without all of the amazing local contractors, and suppliers!
