Builders at Breckenridge Village

Builders   6/4/18, 8:00 am – 7/31/18, 12:00 am

The Cabinet Builders will be working for Breckenridge Village of Tyler starting on June 4th. We’ll leave the shop set up through the end of July to be able to do all three houses from the same location. In addition to the cabinetry, we’ve been asked to hang the interior doors and trim out the doors and windows throughout the houses. There’s a lot of work and we’ve got plenty of RV parking available. As always, “Come when you can and leave when you must”.
