New Construction Homes for Sale - Falconhead West - Bee Cave - Austin TX - Part 3

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 TX used to be a Ranch, called Spillman Ranch.
  Much of the land was just acres upon acres of trees.

Now, we're ready to pour the foundation!  In Falconhead West, where the average sized home is about 3500 sqft, the typical slab pour is approximately six concrete trucks. They bring them in one at a time, pouring the concrete in an even fashion.  The sixth truck is mostly the "top off" truck to make sure it's level throughout.

The slab usually sits for a couple of days before they immediately start putting up the frame.  They measure the house from several different places and then start laying out the wood.

Within a few hours, it could already look like this...

The first floor frame can usually go up in a day or two.  Sometimes it amazes me how I drive by in the morning and there is no frame, and by the time I drive by in the late afternoon, voila, there's a frame!

Donna our oldest son has a foundation company. It takes a long time to set it up to prepare for the pour; the day of the pour everyone is buzzing around. Just as you said, one truck after another and before you know there is a nice foundation and ready for the next step in the process, the framing.
