Ok guys, we are getting close to finishing our latest GreenTex home. This one is in the heart of Central Austin in the Balcones area. It is 3200 SF conditioned with 4 bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms. This home is very nice and within 1/4 mile of Highland Park Elementary School, parks, grocery store, restaurants and more. The home features many custom features and the backyard will accommodate a pool if the buyer is interested. Please let us know if you or someone you know is interested in finding their dream home. We are planning several open houses in the coming weeks. Stay tuned for more info.
Ok, sorry guys it has been a while. We are nearing completion of our latest spec project here in Central Austin. We are pouring the driveway today and finishing up some interior details. This home is listed at $1.5 mil and will be available for viewing and should be complete by September 1. The home features wood floors throughout, beautiful quartz countertops, high efficiency AC system, Milgard fiberglass windows, spray foam insulation, custom cabinets, and loads of other features. Please contact our realtor, Katy McCallum for information. More pictures coming soon from GreenTex Builders.
Here is GreenTex Builders latest custom home building project in central Austin. Based on our geotechnical engineer and structural engineer's assessment of the soil on the lot, we were given 2 options for building the foundation. We chose to cut out 7 feet of the clay soil and fill it back with compacted select fill. Throughout the process, Nicholas Kauffman at Capital Geotechnical Services PLLC, came out and tested the compaction rates at 1 foot lift intervals. It was quite a scene with all of the dirt piled up around the exterior waiting to be hauled off. Here is another picture of the bobcats transferring the dirt from one machine to another...
After compacting the select fill and getting the site ready for our slab, this is what it looks like today. Our plumbers will come in next week and add the plumbing drains in the dirt before we get the rebar in the slab, inspections, and then we will pour the concrete. At this point we are well on our way to building our next Austin Custom Home.
Here is a preliminary rendering of the home in the Balcones woods neighborhood near 2222 and Mopac. We are still not set on the exterior facade, but we will keep you posted on the finishes that we choose along the way.
Thanks for reading and check back with us to see the progress.
