Is "Now" the Right Time to Build?

Have you been on the fence about whether or not “now” is the right time to build?  Okay, maybe not right now.  After all, we all know that the dreaded “s” word will be flooding our vocabularies soon enough.  Besides, if we’re being totally honest, Ohio winters aren’t typically an ideal time to start construction anyhow.  However, it’s never too early to be thinking spring – especially with SNOW and colder temps on the horizon (there, we already said it).

All joking aside, there are several things to take into consideration before making the commitment to take that kind of financial plunge.  Here are a few things you might want to be thinking about if you’ve been wondering if “now” really is the right time to build:

IT'S BACK!

The 2015 Parade of Homes will be held next month!  This year's multi-site Parade will include new homes, condominiums, and remodeling projects spread across Portage, Summit, Medina, and Stark Counties.

The Highlands of Barberton...COMING SOON!

Construction is underway at “The Highlands of Barberton”, and we are pleased to announce our participation in the project.  The city block, which was purchased from Barberton City Schools by Neighborhood Development Services (NDS), is located near Belleview and Oak Avenues and 25th and 26th Streets Northwest. 

2014 Envision Awards / Matt Meyer Receives "Golden Hammer Award"

Each year, the Home Builders Association and Professional Remodelers Council presents an awards program to recognize the finest in new construction and remodeling projects.  The 2014 Envision Awards, held this week, marked the 34th annual competition.  This year, Helen Scott Custom Builders, Inc. entered 4 homes in various categories.  Each of our entries took home 1st place awards in their categories.

Year in Review - 2014

If you’ve been reading our blog posts, you may have noticed that they’ve become fewer and farther between.  It is more likely than not because 2014 proved to be successful at keeping the Helen Scott Builders team on its toes!

Although the past year may have left little time to focus on anything other than the day-to-day (especially blogging), we always make time over the holidays to reflect on the many highlights throughout the year.

At this time last year, I had just been installed as President of the Home Builder’s Association serving Portage / Summit Counties. 

Home for the Holidays

Join us for a "Home for the Holidays" event this Sunday, November 9th, from 12 - 3 pm.  The event will feature 4 custom homes that were first opened to the public during the 2014 Parade of Homes - 3 out of the 4 are FOR SALE!  The builders and their real estate agents will be on-site to answer your questions as you tour these beautiful properties in the desirable neighborhood of King's Ridge in Green, Ohio.  The builders will also be offering holiday incentives to potential purchasers!  Refreshments will be provided at each of the homes.  We hope to see you there!

Excitement is "Building"

  It has been said that August is like the Sunday of Summer, and with Autumn full steam ahead, we hope you've all had a chance to take a minute to enjoy its final days.  We're less than a month away from the single-site Parade of Homes in Green, Ohio, and as mentioned above, excitement is definitely building!  

Just Completed!

  We've just completed another custom home in Barberton, Ohio! 

This 2,500 square foot home boasts 4 bedrooms with a 1st floor owner's suite.  The owners chose many custom finishes when designing their home from the great room with coffered ceiling and built-in cabinets to the kitchen with custom cabinets. 

The floor plan is open, and the overall design has a Craftsman feel to it.

BIG NEWS!

We've got some exciting news at HSCB!  This September, we will be participating in the 2014 Single-Site Parade of Homes!  The location is King's Ridge in Green, Ohio.  Last year, we entered a custom home in the Multi-Site, and were very pleased with the foot traffic (you can read about last year's entry here and here).  As business continues to grow, we are especially anxious to see what this year will bring!

This year's model, "The Verne", is well underway!  It is being built in loving memory of my grandfather, Verne Scott.  This 2,684 square foot home will showcase custom finishes and our team's quality craftsmanship throughout.  Since tours will not be available until it's completion later this Summer, be sure to stop back and check out our future blog posts to see how things are progressing!

There are a total of five entries at this year's Single-Site location, and will be several others participating in the Multi-Site.  The 2014 Parade will take place Friday through Sunday, September 12-14th, Tuesday, September 16th, and Friday through Sunday, September 19-21st. 

Stay tuned for future details...you won't want to miss it!
