Last year, Apple CEO Tim Cook reportedly told Apple employees that the company planned to start moving into its new $5 billion Campus 2 in January, 2017. 

But right now, the campus is still a work in progress. Although landscaping and interior work has started, there's still a lot to do, as shown in a new drone video from photographer Matthew Roberts. 

Since Northern California has seen a lot of rain since last Saturday, lots of Apple's beautiful dirt piles have turned into mud. 

But Apple has started planting trees, doing landscaping on the interior, and is over halfway done installing the solar panels that will cover the roof.

In October, Cupertino updated its public construction schedule for the building. Currently, building and construction is supposed to wrap up in the first quarter of 2017, and landscaping in the second quarter.

Take a look for yourself:
