I don't know about you- but we are always up for sprucing up the exterior of our homes! Houzz has always been a great source for our customers to get design ideas on their new homes. There is rarely a week that goes by where we do not have someone show us a pictures from their ideabook that they have created for inspiration on building their new home. What some people might not know is Houzz is also a great resource for all things around your home including organizing, decorating, exterior landscape ideas and more. Check out this great article they posted on "14 Colorful Spring Containers to Cheer Up Your Porch or Garden."
You have picked everything out so the fun can now begin! Meet our Construction Team. It is time to turn over the floor plans and selections to this group. Their job is to take all those ideas and selections you made and bring them to life.
Before we break ground on the project, you will have a Pre-Construction Meeting at our office where you will meet your Construction Superintendent. This is a opportunity for them to be introduced to you as a homeowner as well as your floor plans and selections. They will be briefed on all the details of the home so they have a clear vision of what you are wanting. From this point on they will become part of your family! They will be one of the main sources of contact throughout your build. Their job is to schedule all the trades, get inspections and make sure everything is followed on the plans. They are also the eyes of the company to make sure not only all your selections are fulfilled but everything behind the walls are built soundly and energy efficiently.
During the build of your home, Landmark Fine Homes will schedule several meeting on your jobsite. This gives us the opportunity to educate you on what is behind the walls and get feedback from you on how you want certain areas of your home to look like.
You are getting close to moving into your new home. Only a few more steps and it will be complete. Check back in next week to see what's next!
You have picked your community, floor plan and signed your contract, so now what?
Next up is picking out all the finishes you would like in your home as well as going over the floor plans to make sure all the details are there. We love greeting new home owners when they walk into our design studio for the first time. Honestly, we see a mix of emotions. Some can not wait to get started on this part. They have been on Pinterest, Houzz or other websites collecting pictures and information of what all they want in their new home. The other set of people walk in looking like a deer in head lights!! The thought of having to pick everything out and making sure it all matches is overwhelming for some. In comes our wonderful team to save the day!!
Landmark Fine Homes believes that we build your home not ours. With that being said, we want to make sure we have all the details in place that you want in your home. There are several meetings scheduled throughout the process of building your home. In the beginning you will come in for a Plan Review Meeting. This is where you will meet with our Estimating Department to make sure we have everything on your plans that you envisioned down to where the light switches are. Then we transition you into meeting with our Design Team. This is where you get to take all those ideas of finishes out of your head and bring them to life! The team does a great job at taking those ideas and matching them to products. During your home building process you will have one designer that is committed to making your home something that you will be proud to show off. Landmark Fine Homes also works hard at not making the process overwhelming. You will have several meetings with our design team where you can focus on certain areas of the home and not feel like you have to make decisions on every facet of the home in one visit.
Now, doesn't that sound easy and fun? It really is! Check out what this family had to say about the process!
We don't know about you but around here it has been HOT!!! With temperatures in the high 90's and low 100's for the last several weeks everyone is looking for a place to cool off. If you live in one of Landmark Fine Homes communities that offer a community pool- you are in luck!! The pool has been a place where the community has been gathering to relax after a long day at work.
If you don't have a community pool to get wet in at the end of the day, be sure and take care of the air conditioner inside your home. Here are a few tips to make sure it keeps running at its best!
Carrington Lakes is one of West Norman's most popular neighborhoods that has a Community Clubhouse with Pool, Parks, Playgrounds, Walking Trails, Catch and Release Fishing and a Mom's Council that plans community events throughout the year including a 4th of July Parade! This home located at 4228 Hackney Wick is in one of the newest sections of this community.
A mix of Modern and Farmhouse design will set this home apart from others and the upstairs Game Room will host a party of any size!
The cable detail on the stairs sets it apart from the more traditional design.
The Granite wrapped island gives this beautiful kitchen a more Modern touch.
This brick wall in the "Kid's Living Area" brings in that Farmhouse touch.
Entertaining will be easy with this large Game/Media Room!
Don't let 2017 go by without making the best decision for your family by purchasing this beauty in one of Norman's most popular communities!
Carrington Lakes is one of the most popular communities in West Norman and this home is soon to be a favorite as well! This 4/5 bedroom beauty is ready for someone to call it HOME. You will love the Grand Staircase as you enter that will lead you to the secondary bedrooms as well as a flex room that can either be a bedroom or a recreation room. A formal dining as well as a study also greet you when you enter the home.
The large open kitchen and great room will allow for entertaining any size party, with storage definitely not lacking in the kitchen. If built ins are your thing, you will not be disappointed. If you want to talk about not being disappointed- wait until you see the master retreat! Dreaming of going to spa can actually now happen every morning when you wake up and enter the master bath. A LARGE walk in shower with 2 heads and a soaker tub are ones that you will rarely see in a home. The large double vanities as well as the master closet that is separated with a barn door allow for lots of storage.
You will want to see this home in person! Our homes are open 1:00-6:00 Thursday- Monday or we are happy to make a appointment to show you another time if these times don't work.
Nothing makes us happier than to see people walk through our Model Home Doors, listen to what they want in their home and watch those dreams become a reality. Hands down this is the most important thing to Landmark Fine Homes. We recognize it is not just the brick and wood that goes into building a home but so much more. This is the setting where people do "Life" together-where memories are made, where people grow, where traditions are started and maintained. We LOVE being a part of this process for so many of our Home Owners. We will be featuring every Tuesday this month- Testimonial Tuesday. It is important to us that you hear from some of our Landmark Fine Homes Family of Homeowners how their experience went. This sweet family came to us and had those visions of what they wanted in their home. Hear what they have to say after being in their home for 4 months.
I wanted to send along a GIANT thank you to all of Landmark Fine Homes for building us the most wonderful house we could have possibly imagined! We have been in our house for about 4 months now and couldn't be happier.
This is our 3rd house we have bought new from a builder. This is the 1st time we were able to build one from the ground up. Our experience was just great. We could tell that we would be getting a much better product, in terms of quality and service and Landmark Fine Homes did not disappoint. We had nothing but a positive experience throughout the whole process.
I honestly believe our superintendent, Tim Carpenter, was a huge factor in providing that positive experience. He made it such an enjoyable process. We only had a couple of hiccups with our house and they were taken care of in a timely manner and correctly. He went above and beyond to make sure the house we wanted was what we moved into! And a little more than that. He offered great suggestions along the way on how to make the house even better or where we could save a few bucks. He KNOWS what he is doing.
We cannot thank Landmark enough for building such a beautiful home.
At Landmark Fine Homes we believe in custom building YOUR home and not OUR home. With that being said, we do notice trends that come and go. Is the latest trend what everyone wants in their home? Absolutely not! That is why we try to build Spec Homes that showcase several different styles.
Some of the latest trends are the Farmhouse Design Style. We know many people have started following the popular HGTV show- Fixer Upper. Chip and Joanna Gaines showcase weekly how they incorporate this style into their designs. Farmhouse Design has its own character and showcases simple organic items, light colors. simple lines and details. It showcases natural wood, fireplaces, beamed ceilings.
Farmhouse sinks have become popular as well. Our Carrington Lakes Model showcases several of these design qualities.
What design style are you currently liking?
