Masonry is approaching the finish line, folks!

Fresh paint on Building B as tile and cabinet installation are in progress. Installation and paint for Building C is still to come. We can confirm delivery on cabinets for Buildings A1 & A2. Walls are geared up for insulation with finished shear wall and our nearly completed siders will be ready in just a few short weeks.

It’s been a busy month at Winston. Let’s check in: 

  • We’ve completed all of the proper rough-in and insulation inspections to be granted drywall coverage.
  • Buildings A1 and A2 have passed framing inspection and are moving on to installation. The siding workers are nearing completion on buildings A1 and A2 as they finish up the final sides and miscellaneous parts. The brick masons have now also completed A1 and are working to finish A2.
  • Hanging, mudding, taping, and texturing at building B are complete. 
  • Building C is being stocked and also has hangers working right behind the stockers. The hangers have already completed a full unit.
  • We have framers, steel fabricators, plumbers, and our HVAC contractors doing final tweaks and corrections in preparation for our imminent backend finishes.

This is exciting progress. We’ll meet you here back next month.

Did you notice our 8.75 inches of rain in January? Things were a little muddy, but we’re still making it happen at Winston:

  • Gas line inspection passed, letting us backfill over the gas lines on the east side of the project.
  • Huge milestone – completion of the waterproofing of the first half of the courtyard deck. We built a large tent over the second half of the courtyard, so our team could continue waterproofing work.

Thanks to these 2 developments, we were able to start wrapping and siding building B.

  • Solar shade installation is well underway.
  • starting up work on concrete stairs, approaches, ramp, and gas meter placement.
  • Building B – drywall installation completed
  • Building B – Drywall installation beginning
