I finally got a chance to upload some new pictures. As you can see the building has progressed quite a bit, we have the roof on and the inside is drywalled. I didn't get to some of the latest pictures, the house is actually stuccoed and sheet-rocked. The next step will require more of the artistic side, where the expertise of interior designer, Gail, will come into play in the next weeks as we do painting and the interior finishes.
I am really happy with our team members for getting everything ready and working extra hard to double check everything. We have passed each inspection on the 1st visit, including the recent All-Trades inspection. Getting through inspections on the 1st time is always important since we are on a tight schedule due the delays caused by the recent rainy season. And I am very proud of our crew since Palo Alto had implemented a very rigorous inspection system that started in 2009 where the check list is not a couple of pages, but a 1-1/2" thick book. Palo Alto is known for being on the front edge of building codes and requirements and I am very happy that my father allowed me the chance to manage this project. It definitely took a lot more work, but I think it was a wonderful experience.
