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 have been busy in our communities celebrating the end of summer with Ice Cream Socials as well as coming together and supporting our local schools with a back to school supply drive! The Reserve at Valencia and The Preserve at Parkside met within the last week. It is always amazing when you see a group of neighbors come together to rally around a cause!
At Landmark Fine Homes we consistently talk about how we don't just build homes but we build communities. When we say communities we don't just mean taking a piece of land and putting in streets, curbs, developing lots and adding amenities that everyone enjoys. Those are items that go into our thinking but we also have listened to our customers and heard what you wanted. The clubhouses, parks, pools and walking trails are all great but what you are wanting more than anything is a community where you can go out of town and not worry about leaving your home. A community where if someone becomes ill, the neighbors rally around that person and provide meals. A community where when you drive down the street you know the names of the people that live in the homes not just what kind of cars they drive.
Our focus this year is hosting community gatherings where that can happen. We have found as our world has become more high tech people are still craving high touch opportunities! If this is something you are wanting- talk with one of our New Home Consultants in The Springs at Greenleaf Trails, The Reserve at Valencia, The Preserve at Parkside, Carrington Lakes, Montoro Ridge, Little River Trails, Cascata Falls, or The Springs at Skyline. They would love to help you get into your new Landmark Fine Home.
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!
Community is what Landmark Fine Homes is all about.
In days gone by, communities were built by people getting to know who their neighbors are. With everyone living in such a high tech world we have listened to our customers and decided we wanted to make a change! We have decided not only to build great homes but really focus on building great communities.
"The Springs" product line is just that. We have created these communities where people can buy great homes that range from 1600-2300 square feet MOL. These homes maybe small in size but are loaded with custom details. Granite countertops, wood floors, rustic beams- you name it! The communities are gated and offer a community clubhouse with workout room, pool, ponds, walking trails and the best part - your yards are maintained!!! We want you to be able to enjoy your life and do the things you want to do, not worry about yard work. Never fear though, if yard work is your thing, you can spend as much time as you want creating flower beds and gardens in the back yard to maintain.
The Springs at Greenleaf Trails is the first community of this kind that Landmark Fine Homes put in located in Norman, Oklahoma. To get the community started, Soup Saturday's were formed. Once a month, people that were under contract to build and those that were considering the community would gather together at the model home and get to know each other. This quickly turned into everyone asking at the end of the gathering when the next one would be. At that point we knew this was something that was greatly needed! Since the first Soup Saturday begun everything from Cooking Classes, Painting Classes and Monthly Potlucks occur. Drive through this gated community in the evenings and you will see neighbors walking together and people sitting on their porches. Winter time you will find the "younger" people in the community shoveling drive ways for the "older" ones.
How could we just stop with the one community? There is no way we could! We are at the final stages of "Kicking off " The Springs at Skyline Trails which will be located in Mustang, Oklahoma. This gated community will offer the same community clubhouse with workout room, community pool, walking trails, pond and yards maintained. Monthly Gatherings? Absolutely!
Check out the Model Home that is almost complete!
The next community will be The Springs at Valencia located in Edmond is set to begin construction in the next several months. We are excited to have this same concept available in the Edmond Area!
