Town Homes at Brighton Mills Construction Blog

Leave a comment


The weather has been kind and construction has been moving at a steady pace on the Town Homes at Brighton Mills.  

Rough framing is nearly complete at 101 Litchfield Street.  Window installation and roofing will begin later this week.Image

107 Litchfield Street is just behing 101, with framing of the roof level to be completed by next week.  When framing is complete on these two buildings on Litchfield Street, excavation will begin on the third and final foundation on this block.Image

Meanwhile on Holton Street, excavation is under way for the third and final foundation on this block.  Image

Framing has also begun on Holton Street at the corner of Telford.  While framing and excavation are underway at the corners of this block, the completed concrete slab foundation for the middle building provides some staging room.  Framing will proceed on that building after the foundation at the corner of Antwerp St is complete.    Image

Taking Shape

Framing is well underway on the 101 and 107 Litchfield Street buildings, both of which are framed up to the second floor now.Image


Inside the two bedroom first floor homes are taking shape.  Below, you are looking from the living room into the kitchen and through walls into the laundry room, bedrooms, and rear exit.Image

Meanwhile on Holton Street, the 113-115 and 117-119 building foundations have been poured.  In the photo below, the under-slab vapor barrier system is under construction.  The final concrete pour for the foundation slab will go over the layers of underground plumbing, stone, insulation, and vapor barrier fabric and should happen this week. Image


After the framing crews finish 101 and 107 Litchfield, they will move over to Holton St to frame these buildings and the crew working on Holton will move to Litchfield to build the foundation for the 103-105 Litchfield building and will finish the last foundation at 121-123 Holton when the framing is well underway on the other Holton buildings.  This dance keeps everything progressing on these very tight sites without staging or storing off site.
