The Great Wall!

Hello again!

So, the retaining wall is HUGE! I get chills when I stand on top of it and see the view. It is so incredible and really does justice to the true Hill Country. Plumbing rough is on its way, and beams will be in this week to lay down and get drilled into the ground. They rolled and packed base material all day yesterday getting the ground ready for the slab! As you know, this is the longest part of the construction process, after this is done, the framers are here 7 days a week working hard to get the building UP! Once the frame is up, all sub contractors will be working together in the building to get everything done at one time. We got great feed back from an aqua-scape’s company to re-do the existing pond and add a fountain. It is going to be stunning! I have another appointment with the landscape architect this afternoon to go over some of the details and make sure what we want will be here! Keep in touch, I will post more pictures tomorrow!

Cheers, Kristin

Retaining Wall

Today has been a great construction day! Things got started very early around 6:30 am. The concrete guys are moving quickly! I checked on the progress around 2:00. I will be out there again around 5:30 to meet the aqua-scape’s company to design the pond. I will take more pictures then so there won’t be any workers out there and I can get up close and personal 🙂 Before you know it there will be a building….I know my September and October brides are laughing right now, but I promise….it will be done!!!!! Good thing is, it doesn’t seem like we have rain coming any time soon, and the contractors are working 6 days a week! Check back soon. Cheers!

Construction Update!

Hello fellow followers! For all my brides and grooms who have been out to see the progress of the Plantation, you have seen that the site work is complete at this point, meaning all the clearing, parking and slab preparations are complete. The concrete contractors are on the move now! They are smoothing out all the bumps and grooves getting ready for the plumbing rough! Tomorrow I will be working with the electric company getting all the finals put together so we can power this baby up! All the lighting selections have been made and ordered! Flooring decisions will be made by weeks end. We know we are going with wood floors…not sure what color or size yet…but I will definitely share this exciting news when we know! Kendall Plantation is new to the ‘blogging’ thing, so work with us as we launch this site! We will post new pictures and updates often!
