As 2015 winds down, I wanted to look back on this project and see what went well, what didn't, and what is still left to do.
In Texas, one of the most important aspects of construction is planning for heating and cooling of the space.
Applying the concrete overlay was the last major piece of work to be done on the office project. Unlike stamping and staining, overlay has a different texture and allows precise matching of existing patterns.
After the retaining walls were finished and all of the stone was put up on the office walls and breezeway, there was still a lot of stone left, approximately 3 tons.
The breezeway between the two offices also got the stone treatment.
The stone on the retaining wall and the offices is now complete. Turned out beautifully.
Work has finally started on putting up the stone on the office buildings and building the new retaining wall.
The existing retaining wall has finally been removed.
Trimwork was added recently. The trimwork in the offices consists mainly of baseboards, crown molding, and door and window trim.
Ahu and I debated quite a bit about the material to use as flooring in the offices. She wanted stone from the beginning. I wanted hardwood in my office. However, after thinking about it, I realized that stone is the way to go.
