Year in Review - 2017

Although 2017 was not without its challenges – labor shortages, increased cost of building materials, and lack of developed lots, to name a few – it still proved to be another great year for home-building! 

Although we sold our model home in early 2017, we were fortunate enough to finish 16 other custom homes throughout the year.  In the absence of having a model home to showcase our work to prospective customers, our clients generously allowed us to hold their homes open at the completion of construction.  This permitted us to invite new prospects to see first-hand examples of our work.  While the convenience of a single-site model home certainly had its advantages, this approach resulted in exceptional feedback from prospective customers.  It allowed potential clients to see a variety of floorplans, finishes, and more.  Due to the great response, we will be continuing to hold open houses in 2018 as we complete new custom homes.  In the meantime, if you didn’t have a chance to stop out to any of the properties we finished last year, feel free to click the photo below to browse the gallery for some snapshots of these beautiful homes!

2018 is already off to a great start!  The members of our team recently traveled to Orlando, Florida, to attend the International Builder Show.  The show features the newest industry trends and products, the latest industry reports, and offers a variety of educational sessions and networking events.  The IBS is something we look forward to year-after-year, and this year’s show did not disappoint!  It is evident that the construction industry is continuing to evolve at a fast pace, and we are fortunate that we were able to not only participate, but especially take away a wealth of knowledge from this year’s convention.  We look forward to using this information in the months ahead to not only better serve our clients, but also improve our business.

If the first few weeks of 2018 are any indication, then we are confident that it’s going to be another successful year for the industry!  We have some VERY exciting news on the horizon, so stay tuned to see what's coming next for HSCB!

That's a Wrap!

2016 proved to be another successful year for the HBA Parade of Homes with thousands in attendance over the course of the past two weekends!  It was an ideal occasion to visit 8 beautiful homes at the single-site location in Green, OH, or several other homes throughout Portage, Summit, and Medina Counties.  All of the homes featured the current trends in new construction and remodeling.
