Here’s how building your forever home with BrightLeaf looks in the 150 day construction process
1. The Groundwork – the first 25 days
Demolish existing structure(s), excavate, footings, foundation – BrightLeaf adds a weatherproof membrane and three inches of insulation to all foundations – pour slab with two inches of insulation underneath, install water and sewer utilities.
2. The Structure – the next 40 days
Time to build. First, we frame the house, install electrical service, frame and shingle roof, and install windows. In this step, the exterior doors are installed, the porch, deck, and garage are framed, both plumbing and HVAC are roughed in, and siding is completed.
3. The Interior – 45 days
It’s beginning to look a lot like a home.
4. The Finishing Touches – the final 40 days
Every single detail matters. We paint, install the countertops, complete plumbing, and install all electrical fixtures. All the appliances are delivered and installed, and final paint
After final inspection, we welcome you home.
150 days is the average timeline for standard Eco 1 and Eco 2 Models. The Eco 3 Model takes on a longer process due to the size of the home.
