David Weekley Homes is doing something extraordinary in the Waterset Community in Apollo Beach. David Weekley Homes is building a brand new model, the Maybeck, in just 21 days.

The Maybeck will be the 2013 Showcase Home for the Tampa Bay Builders Association Annual Parade of Homes which runs from March 2 to March 17.

According to David Weekley Homes, the normal construction schedule for a home like The Maybeck is 105 calendar days. “We are assigning a robust team to complete this model home in 21 days to make sure we are ready for the Parade of Homes,” explained Mark Thomas, David Weekley Homes Tampa Division President.

Thomas added, “David Weekley Homes is excited to showcase our new model home, The Maybeck, in Waterset as part of the Parade of Homes. We focus on design, choice and service in all the homes we build, and this energy-efficient home is a great example of the type of home we would love to build for your family in the near future.”

The home will be fully decorated and open to the public on Saturday, February 16.

The Maybeck is a 3,042 sq. ft. home with four bedrooms, three and a half bathrooms and a three-car tandem garage. Moreover, The Maybeck features wonderful  views from the front door through the foyer, through the open family room and onto the rear lanai. The Maybeck has a unique walk-through pantry. The spacious owners’ retreat  offers a large bathroom and walk-in closet. The upstairs laundry room is perfect for families with children.

What’s more, The Maybeck is energy efficient. The home is certified Gold Standard through the Environment For Living (R) program and R-38 insulation, radiant barrier roofing and low-E double pane vinyl windows are installed throughout the home.

Waterset, located at 6830 Scenic Dr. in Apollo Beach, is a Newland Development which features many amenities that families love, such as a pool, fitness center, three parks with walking trails, playgrounds, lakes and a dog park.
