Sammamish Construction Update

by Cory Brandt

Mr. Brandt Builds a House:  Eagle Tree Property Update

Oh the joy’s of being a developer.  We have things that make you go BOOM, and we have stuff that actually doesn’t roll downhill.   Well – I would argue that in an 8” pipe that is 240’ long and almost 20’ deep that stuff will still roll downhill if there is a ¾” dip in one of the pipes.   I know – that only leaves 7 ¼” left – I don’t know what you guys flush – but I can guarantee nothing has ever gone down my toilet that took up 7 ¼”.   But…the tolerance was a ½” so dig it up we did.  Tuesday we get the camera out there and praying that we buried it right this time.  

Got to love development.  Even with all that my new favorite swear word – Patelco!   I just thought of that … kind of like it…except every time I use that swear word I’ll just have visions of money flying out of my wallet – Patelco!   Or delays – Patelco!   I better stop or I’ll get myself in trouble – but they’re not a fan favorite in my house.

So what now?  P-Plat!!!  That’s my new favorite word.  P-Plat is Preliminary Plat – it is where you do the engineering to a point where a builder/developer is willing to buy it off you based on a defined highest and best use.  But what you don’t have to do is dig, put in utilities, restore wetlands, pave roads, etc. etc.   

The finish line is near – and it is P-Plat from here on – YEE HA.  That way I can “relax” and sell houses (only from 9-5 of course).

Are We Headed for Another Bubble?
Where is the local and the global marketplace heading...

With rising prices, many folks are concerned about another Real Estate Bubble.  But it's important to look at both the local and overseas influence; combined these  point to the return of a more normal market, not a bubble.

Are you ready for chapter two? 

Here's a look at the Eagle Tree Property, just down the street from the Iceberg Rock.  We're finally moving dirt and getting ready to put in the utility trench.  This is the exciting part; when you finally see the lots take shape.
