custom homes: Bluestone Home Complete! - 09/25/15 12:52 AM
Wow! I had a set back and didn't finish this string on our Bluestone Custom Home. It was complete and the new owners are loving life in it! I was recovering from surgery and absolutely forgot to get the finished product out here. Anway, it appraised for $508,000 and here are some of the professional photos at completion:
The builder kept the trees in the front yard - you can't grow them quick!
The back patio is a true year round use outdoor living area with a dedicated heat pump for heating and cooling. It is on or off as needed and it … (2 comments)

Although the blessed rain has slowed the Bluestone Home project in Rockwall Ranch somewhat, the house is coming along nicely. Wallas textured and cabinets goin in. Paint to start Monday, and exterior continues to look better each day. The exterior stone has a wonderful array of color in it to provide a nice pallette for the owner to work with in the future if they decide to change anything. 
Here a few recent pics to show the progress:
Note the AC ducts coming in from the ceiling. There is a dedicated 1 ton unit that will cool and heat the porch to allow … (1 comments)

What a difference a few days makes! We are at the point that the house changes almost daily now that the sheetrock is up. You can see the walls and the features are starting to pop at you, like the light cove in the living room and entry area that will have adjustable lighting to set the right mood, whether entertaining or relaxing alone.
Here are a few pictures - let me know how they look!

You can see the light coves in the living room now. That will be the TV wall and is fully insulated to the master … (0 comments)

Starting to look like a real house! 
Will have drywall in soon and we'll really get some visual of the house. Many rain delays and some material shortages have put the project at a slow pace, but will pick up again this week with better weather and material deliveries on time!
Some of the details you don't readily see are the insulated wall between the master and the living area to add privacy. The master hose bib cut off in the garage for the few nights it freezes. The electical system includes traditional 110 V as well as 220 V in … (0 comments)

It's been too long since our last update! Building our Bluestone Home continues and much has been done and these photos are from 3 weeks ago. All framing, electrical, rough plumbing, and mechanicals are complete. Looking to start drywall this week and have roof shingles by Monday. The wet weather has delayed a lot, but we won't complain about rain around here!
Here is a view of the outdoor living paorch with tongue and groove ceiling. A recessed TV portal is in the fireplace frame, with dedicated electric and cable outlet.

Here are a couple of shots of the interior, … (2 comments)

I am keeping this blog to update on building a custom Bluestone Home in Rockwall Ranch, near New Braunfels, TX. This is to share the process, learn a few tips, and watch an exquisite home take shape. We are now in week 3 of construction and framing is taking place along with exterior sheath installation.
 
  
The large outdoor living area will have a wood burning fireplace to enjoy all year, and a TV mount and cable will be included. The front is still heavily wooded to allow the buyer to determine just what to remove and what to leave … (0 comments)

Building a custom Bluestone Home is a process that I want to share as we build to educate and inform both buyers and agents. This is a multi part blog that will walk us through the process and watch the progress, and hopefully learn a few things as well.
Although our weather is certainly not bad by national standards, it certainly has not been cooperative with our building process. Add in the Christmas and New Year holidays landing mid-week, and we are about 2 weeks behind. The foundation is poured and framing has begun, so it isn't full stop, just not as … (0 comments)
