See Grow on HouseSmarts TV SATURDAY

Grow Community will be featured on HouseSmarts, the "reality show for real homeowners," Aug. 1 on KONG-TV in the Seattle area.


The HouseSmarts crew and contractor/host Lou Manfredini (NBC's Today Show, WGN Radio) visited Grow for a day this past spring and really liked what they saw.




The popular 30-minute weekly home improvement program "answers the questions homeowners really want to know," the producers say. "Nobody adds on a room in one weekend, or lets their neighbors decorate their living room. HouseSmarts follows the progress of real people and lessons learned."


HouseSmarts' Grow Community segment airs at 10 a.m. Aug. 1.

Summer Construction Update: 

No summertime blues at Grow phase 2

Framing for the Juniper building is kicking into high gear as the Grow Community skyline goes skyward. We're getting set to pour the topping concrete for the Woodland Homes foundations, and soon the Tsuga will have a floor from which we'll start building up.   


The warm temperatures outside won't last, but thanks to canny construction, our buildings will be snug all year-round. The Salal has its weatherproof jacket (the brown-hued Prosoco "Cat-5" water-and-air barrier) nearly all applied, to ensure protection for the building and residents alike.   


Top-quality windows are more than halfway installed, and the interior rough-in of systems is takings shape. The Elan townhomes are following close behind the Salal.   


Most exciting of all is our prep work for our next round of landscaping, which will make Grow phase 2, the Grove, look as if we will drop a beautiful portion of a young Grand Forest right into the heart of the neighborhood.


Cap that off with some early preparations for the rooftop solar component, and it's been one hot summer.


With the hot, dry weather of summer upon us, crews will be watering down the site periodically to minimize dust - definitely a challenge, so we ask our residents' and neighbors' forbearance.


For all the activity around the site, our crews are running up an impressive safety record - 15,000 hours (and counting) without an injury. Great job, construction team!


Watch Grow Community continue to take shape each time you pass by the site, and we'll see you in September.
