It’s official! After two years of waiting, we are proud owners of a beautiful new hole in the ground! After a pair of nesting eagles halted progress last summer, we finally received permission to proceed, and we broke ground on the first SMILE property on March 7th!

We anticipate that the foundation will be completed by early April, and framing will begin shortly after.

As always, thank you for all your support of the Steven Milford Independent Living Experience. Keep a lookout for continued updates on the construction progress via our website.
