Lucy. Construction Updates





Markets: Austin

Things are moving right along as we work on building Lucy!


Come here to watch the paint dry:

Lucy hates to brag and yet somehow she can’t stop going on and on about the Common area’s great progress. The pool and deck design is also a sight to see, graced under gorgeous heritage trees! Despite continued delays on account of the current state of affairs, home construction has also seen advancements.

Hang tight for us, we’ll be arranging playdates with Lucy real soon!


10/26/21

Though we’re seeing new onsite advancements, Lucy still has a significant road ahead with our still-pending Site Final Acceptance letter from the City of Austin. Completion on Electric and Water Meter installations is also stalled while we wait on corresponding permits. StoryBuilt has turned over all of the City’s requested documentation so it’s a waiting game and we remain confident in launching the final stages of construction for Phases 1, 2 & 3 once we have the letter in our possession.


9/21/21

September is coming up Lucy and we are feeling that. So much significant progress onsite as well as completion of all City-required punch items for Sarabeth Way. We are now ready to move forward with the final stages of construction for our early-phase homes.

If you’ve peeked by the community lately, you’ve seen all the homes well underway and how Lucy is really coming into her own. We can’t wait to welcome you home! See you next month.


8/16/21

Lucy is firing on the cutest of cylinders with all home phases underway.

We were delayed by the City of Austin in getting final power and approvals for final land development but we’ll have a clearer picture of completion progress on phases 1-2 once approval is granted. After we’ve tackled that, StoryBuilt will be able to communicate when to expect water and electric meters along with sidewalk/driveway permits, then we’ll be in the home stretch for completion.

More on Lucy next month!


7/21/21

Lucy is gaining ground beautifully as construction on all homes is now underway!

As soon as speed bump installation gets checked off the list, we can greenlight City Final Inspection with Final Acceptance to follow. After Final Acceptance is received, we’ll be able to call in electric and water meters for phases 1 & 2, which should paint a better picture for final delivery.

Hang tight and we’ll have more next month!


6/15/21

Lucy is moving along and looking good!

Many homes in phases 1 and 2 are painted, drywall up, and cabinets and countertops installed. We’re waiting for final power hookup. When power is hooked up, we start on the final stages – installing wood floors, appliances, landscaping and fencing.

All homes have been started in all phases, and progressing appropriately.

Thanks for checking in with us and we’ll see you back here next month.


5/14/21

Lucy in May is a good place to be. Some houses have been drywalled and painted.

  • Phase 4 homes: Construction started.

Sidewalks and flatwork coming up next.

4/6/21

  • Phase 1 homes: insulation and drywall installation.
  • Phase 2 homes: framing continues.
  • Phase 3 homes: foundations poured.
  • Phase 4 homes: pinning finished, vertical construction beginning.

Need a break? Come and drive past – things are looking great!


2/28/21

Let’s check in with Lucy – this month we have a special anecdote:

“After winter storm Irma, our concrete contractor told us that StoryBuilt was the only builder able to pour foundations the Monday following due to the quality of below slab vapor barriers that StoryBuilt directed their trade to use in lieu of less-expensive alternatives. Every other builder had to re-do their wraps because they did not withstand the harsh weather over the course of the week.”
– Hank Parker, Development Manager

  • Phase 1 – framing and trimming work
  • Phase 2 – foundations poured with framing begun.
  • The detention pond has fencing completed
  • Pool lot ready for excavation

 Up next: Phase 3 starts  Catch you back here next month!
