It will be another year and a half until the 28,000-square-foot house being built in western Brunswick County is completed.

But windows and doors will be installed in about two weeks and the roof will go on in about a month, added Grant DuBose, vice president of operations for the home’s builder, the Carrell Group, in Little River, S.C.

Ground was broken in September 2009 on the three-story house, located on a lake in a gated neighborhood. The owners are not identified.

The reinforced-concrete house is designed to withstand a Category 5 hurricane and earthquakes, and to use the minimum of energy to power its heating, ventilation and air conditioning, and other systems. Its 9,000-square-foot first level will appear to be below grade and serves as garage space.
