Development Update for July 26

Estate 1

With a touch of Hawaiian flare, this contemporary estate continues to see great progress. On the interior, the construction teams are working on drywall installation, which allows for easy visualization of room size, dimension, and volume. The white drywall also projects the natural light throughout the home in a similar fashion to the eventual finished project. The wood beams stand out in stark relief in the soaring vaulted ceiling of the jaw-dropping great room. Next up, the drywall will be hand textured in a smooth, modern texture followed by cabinet and bathroom tile installation. On the exterior, the home has been wrapped in preparation of the exterior stucco and the roof has been papered in preparation for the standing seam metal roof that will finish out the exterior look.

Estate 2

As the construction team has fully wrapped the exterior in preparation for stucco, this estate with clean modern lines is taking on the most dramatic feel. The key areas of the façade that will be clad in metal siding are weather proofed (on the construction photos these are the areas delineated in yellow), but the metal siding won’t go on until closer to the completion date. The application of the smooth, white stucco finish will begin soon with the intent to make the black metal windows pop. The stucco will take a few weeks to cure properly and cannot be rushed since that would diminish the finished quality and cause cracking to be more visible. Inside the home, the drywall installation is complete and ready for hand texturing by some of central coast’s finest craftsman.

Estate 3

Not far behind its counterparts, Estate 3 continues to see great progress. The interior of the home has been fully framed; all rough plumbing and electrical completed. Even without the drywall, one can already experience the drama of the expansive vaulted great room with long walls of glass on both sides. Drywall installation will start soon on the interior, followed by the stucco crews moving from Estate 1 and 2 to start the framework for stucco on this fine estate.

Estate 4

The largest of the four estates, and by far the most complicated and expensive to build, Estate 4 continues to be meticulously constructed from the ground up, foot-by-foot. The 2-story hillside requires more complicated construction work in order to create the framework for the dramatic tower entry and stair case, complete with a 21’ wall of glass. This site work includes several layers of retaining walls, all requiring proper cure time before the framing can start. The foundation is nearly complete and once it has finished curing, the machinery will be brought back in to back-fill the retaining walls. Many are eager to see framing begin soon so that this dramatic estate can finally take shape. Once framing is complete, hard-hat previews can be accommodated for those on the registered buyer list.
