Brookville after


Interior framing, plumbing, electrical, drywall, fixtures, cabinetry, and flooring have begun, just in time for the cold winter months ahead.

Keep in mind, construction from time of pouring concrete footers to settlement date is usually six months (weather permitting).  Although it seems much has been accomplished in a short period of time, the interior detail work that begins at this stage will slow the process.

In the meantime, in anticipation of a January completion date, the decorating and furniture selection begins next month.  Remember to allow time for furniture ordering and drapery fabrication.  Plan ahead, as 6-8 weeks is typically needed from time of selection, to delivery and installation.
