Take Steps Now to Prevent Frozen Pipes

Categories: Home Maintenace Tips | Posted: December 30, 2017

When weekly forecast temperatures are below freezing for several days, it is a good idea to take steps to prevent frozen pipes in your home.

-Disconnect all garden hoses and turn off water to any exterior faucets.

-Keep your garage doors down to protect pipes and water heaters from the cold.

-Open cabinet doors at sinks to allow warmer air to circulate.  This is especially important for plumbing on an exterior wall of your home.

-Sinks and any bath plumbing on exterior walls are particular ones to leave on a slow drip over nights where temperatures dip into the teens and daily temps are below freezing.  

Read on for more suggestions to help protect your pipes from frigid temperatures.

We are grateful for our customers.  We consider it a privilege to work with each and everyone  who chooses us as their builder.  Building a new home is a major investment of time and resources.  We want to work together to provide our homeowners with the best product and experience.  Building this trust early on in the process begins with a Plans, Specs and Design meeting with the Owner and Design Coordinator.   Then follows with  a Pre-Construction meeting with your Project Manager.  This allows the lines of communication to be open and stay open throughout the building process.

 

 

 

 

 

 

We say, “Thanks!” to our contractors.  We are fortunate to have long established relationships with contractors and vendors so we can provide you with quality services and products that complete your home.

We are also very grateful to have been able to give back to the community in which we work.  We are proud to support organizations like the Cameron K Gallagher Foundation, whose work brings awareness and programs that work to cultivate understanding of teenage mental illness and ASK Childhood Cancer Foundation, who works to provide assistance, support and kindness when kids and their families need it most.  We also partner with several school music and sports booster clubs in the area to support these programs for students.

Advantages to First Floor Master Plans

Categories: Building a New Home, Chesterfield New Homes, Hanover New Homes, Midlothian New Homes, Richmond Area New Home Builder | Posted: November 15, 2017

There are several advantages to choosing a floor plan with the Master Bedroom or Owner’s Suite on the main floor.  First floor Master plans are in greater demand from our buyers and these are the top reasons why:

 

Energy efficiency

Dual heating and cooling zones allow homeowners to program their zones for use.  If the second floor isn’t being used as often, empty nester or “near” empty nesters, can still have the space for family, but can keep energy costs down with only having to heat/cool a smaller area of their home.

 

Age in Place

Many would love to stay in their home well into the age where being on one floor is more ideal.  Having a First Floor Master early in the ownership of your home allows you to keep living in your home when stairs could become a challenge later in life.

 

Multi-Generational Families

Many families take shape over time to include extended family members.  There are times when grandparents join their children and grandchildren to become one home.  Often older children return for time to live with their parents while they are in transition from one season to the next.  Building a home with a First Floor Master allows for more flexibility when the dynamics of your family change.

 

Our Space, Your Space

Modern technology is such that young children can be monitored with audio AND visual baby monitors. Parents with younger children can choose a first floor master for privacy and still keep a close eye on their young ones!   Many of our plans offer an additional Loft space on the second floor which can become like a second family room.

 

In the Richmond area, CraftMaster Homes offers a variety of First Floor Master Plans in many of our new home communities.  Click the photos below to find our more about our first floor master and main living plans.

In the Market

Categories: Building a New Home, Richmond Area New Home Builder | Posted: October 17, 2017

In the market for a new home, but have one to sell first ?  Get your current home ready to move to free you up for a new one!  We’ve got some tips for staging your current home to help it sell quickly and for the right price so you can be ready to build or get that great quick move-in home before someone else does!

Effectively staging your home is the key to selling your house at the right time and the right price. Before you open your home to potential buyers, you want to make sure that your staging captures and highlights all that your home has to offer. We know the staging process can be overwhelming, so here are some tips from us on how to make your home look its very best.  

Right light

Having the right lighting can make a world of a difference when it comes to staging your home. Follow this general rule: 100 total watts of light for every 50 square feet.

Beige, Ivory, and Taupe, OH MY!

If your walls aren’t already painted in a neutral tone, try it out. Neutral colored rooms appear to be warmer, more relaxing, and more inviting. In fact, homes with neutral colors tend to receive higher offers than homes with bold colors. Look how cozy these beige walls make our Burgess model look!

Three is a Magic Number

When it comes to grouping decor, an odd number of items tends to be more appealing than and even number.  The number that is proven to be most attractive to the human eye is groups of three. Though it might be tempting to put your entire candle stick collection on display (we’ve been there), try to limit it to three pieces.

Use Your Space

Utilize every space of your home that you possibly can. Make sure that every room has a clear purpose and play into it. Get creative with your “extra areas” like turning that random cupboard under your staircase into a reading nook. If you have yard, creating an outdoor oasis adds huge value to your home. Figure out the strengths of your home and highlight them.  Remember that the features you fell in love with can make potential buyers fall in love, too!
