Falconhead West - Bee Cave - Austin TX - has a lot of new construction homes for sale in all different stages right now. In a series of posts, I'm going to show you pictures and describe a little of what is going on.
Many people will never have the opportunity to build a brand new house, and many who do, never pay attention to the process it takes to get that house to stand there for many years to come.
Falconhead West in Bee Cave - Austin TX - used to be a Ranch, called Spillman Ranch. Much of the land was just acres upon acres of trees.
With that, the first step is to clear out the trees and try to salvage some of the workable trees. Many communities don't try to save any trees. They just plow down all the trees and start fresh with flat ground and then plant some new trees in the front yards. Falconhead West does not do that, but they do plow down most, if not all, the Cedar Trees.
When all the Cedar Trees are torn down and put in the mulching machine, the tree mulch is then reused around the community mainly for the flower beds and muddy lots where they're trying to not sink through the mud.
Once the lot is cleared, the builders come and place boards around the exterior footprint of the house to make sure the placement of where the house will be is good and within building lines. They will then bring in fill dirt and let the dirt sit on the ground for a while. I've heard many things about why they do this, but mainly it's to let the dirt settle into the ground for a more sturdy building platform while leveling all the imperfections out.
