2018 Parade of Homes

Come visit our team at the 2018 Parade of Homes! Starting this weekend, this year's event will be a scattered site Parade with 12 homes located around Summit & Portage Counties. Our home is in the development of King's Ridge in Green. Stay tuned later this week for a sneak peek of our entry.

SEMINAR & OPEN HOUSE – Saturday, 10/21

Please join Scott Strayer, President of Helen Scott Custom Builders, at the Green Branch Library on Saturday, October 21st, from 9:30-11:00 a.m.  He, along with a few other presenters, will be speaking at a FREE seminar regarding new construction.  This will be a great opportunity to hear some of your local industry experts discuss the nuts and bolts that will help you navigate the home building process.

Also, feel free to join Scott after the seminar to view a recently completed custom home!  That’s right – our next OPEN HOUSE will also be taking place on Saturday, October 21st, from 1:00-4:00 pm.  This property is conveniently located just a short drive from the library at 471 Amberly Drive, Uniontown, OH  44685.  This 2,300 square foot ranch (pictured below) features an open floor plan with 3 bedrooms, a formal dining room, a partially finished basement, and 2 car garage. The owners incorporated many features in this home, including a barrier-free entry at front door, stepless entry into the shower, and oversized doorways, to maximize accessibility.  There are also many custom finishes throughout to help set this home apart!  

We hope to see you this Saturday at one or both of these great events!

April Showers

 The old rhyme, “April Showers Bring May Flowers”, certainly isn’t uncommon this time of year.  For us, however, the saying doesn’t only ring true for fresh blooms.  In fact, we most often associate it with new foundations, framework, and drywall (much less appealing, right?).  For many builders, Spring never fails to be a busy time of year – albeit a very messy time of year.  After all, not only do April showers bring May flowers, but they also bring a lot of mud to our jobsites!  That's why we'd like to invite you to visit any of our homes under construction for a "Muddy Boots Tour"!
