The Models at Brandywine

We recently performed a framing walk-thru at The Courtyards at Brandywine. The Product Development team, interior designers, Director of Construction, Project Manager and President pore through every inch of every model before they are drywalled. That is a lot of hard hats!

We pay great attention to how each space feels. There are many, many considerations and each walk takes hours. Just a few of the questions we ask ourselves: Does each room translate properly from blueprints to frame? Do the kitchen and bathroom layouts make sense? Are the closets big enough?

We did two walk-thrus on the three models at Brandywine and are more excited than ever for the customers that have waited patiently for the job to open. We made minor changes but overall they are moving ahead with construction. I am eager to return to see the changes that were made: a prettier, grander statement staircase in one, an extra linen closet in another, extra soffits and dramatic doors and doorways, and possibly a media room in one of the basements!
