Our Experience So Far
Stage 1 - Homesite Preparation
To begin construction, Britton must first accomplish the following non-construction tasks:
- Securing proper permits and approvals from the local building authority.
- Determining your home’s position and orientation based on technical requirements.
- Clearing the land of obstructions.
Stage 2 - Framing
Now it is time to frame the home. This is one of the most exciting phases for our clients, since you can actually see the 'bones' of your home springing up from the foundation. Framing usually takes 1 to 2 weeks to complete. The builder installs: wood beams, rafters, floor studs to create a skeletal frame.
Stage 3 - Exterior Trim & Roof
Britton uses a product called Cemplank that is impervious to rotting, warping and termites. Cemplank offers a 25-year manufacturer's warranty.
Mechanical Rough & Insulation
This is where all the items contained in the walls and attic are installed:
- wiring and cables
- plumbing lines
- HVAC ducts
- Polycel insulation is added to exterior corners, doors, windows and walls
Stage 4 - Drywall
This stage is where the home really starts to come together:
- Interior Trim
- Bath and kitchen cabinets

Final Thoughts on Building with Britton Homes at Mustang Lakes
Honestly the build process took a very long time. It took about 6 months longer than it would have pre-covid. We had to substitute certain materials that could not be aquired. We also had labor issues in trying to complete the home.
However, the sales and construction staff were professional and tried their best to keep us informed. There were a couple of mistakes and Britton stepped up and corrected them as best they could. At the end of the day, they did a great job on the home and the clients are happy.
Britton offers a 2 year home owners warantee. That is one full year longer than any other local competator.
