 Flood waters from ongoing rain made this special delivery from our neighbor next door. Wow

The weather was ominous but we got the foundation poured and framing begins!

River House Framing

May 15, 2015. By Ryan. 0 comment(s).

The house we are building on the Guadalupe River in New Braunfels, TX is moving along at a steady pace now. The major structural steel is up and we are in the midst of framing.  

It took quite some time to get the first floor framing set up properly- each pile driven steel pier had up to a 3" tolerance so none of the steel is actually square. We had to square everything with our joists, which is no small task when you are 15' in the air and don't have much to work off of. 

We've essentially finished framing the guest room portion of the house and now we are working on the main spaces. You can see how our design weaves through the trees and maximizes views to the river

A view from what will be the living area. Its amazing to see the difference between the foliage from late winter to late spring.

View from a corner bedroom:

Its been raining quite a bit this spring, which is great for this part of Texas, but not so great for construction.
