Don’t Buy Gifts, Buy Experiences

1121740_christmas_gifts_2.jpg
The season for giving is here and I thought you might want to reconsider your list. Recently we experienced blessed fellowship in the yard with nature and specifically with leaves. The type of experience that creates strained backs, wobbly ladders, high gutters and IcyHot patches. Reality tells me this experience couldn’t possibly be an enduring family memory of significant value. This experience is more a fall ritual that has met its expiration date. Not the type of experience that is easily replaced with that of a snow shovel. Nor the type of experience that leads to family unity. There is more to life than these.

Santa buys a new luxury home in Richmond!

Santa Claus is buying a new home in Richmond VA. Of all the wonderful choices available, he looked at many luxury homes in Richmond before choosing the Boone Homes neighborhood of Coach Homes of Kinloch. I can just picture Santa sitting in his beautiful new study, feet propped up on the desk eating cookies and looking over his list – checking it twice. With the spaciousness of a Boone Home, there is plenty of room for the elves, and Mrs. Clause is divinely happy in her new state of the art kitchen. The no maintenance community means that Santa won’t even have to shovel the driveway to get the sled out for Christmas Eve. Now that thought really makes Santa smile, living at the North Pole has made Santa really appreciate No Maintenance Living. The elves appreciate it too — you don’t think Santa shoveled the drive alone do you?

Rainy Play Date Solution

Rain does not make a very good day for a play date. Slides are wet, swings are wet, not to mention all that mud. Hiding in a pavilion waiting for the rain to pass is no fun at all. What if there was another solution?

Some things are Timeless … Boone Homes

The-Barcroft-300x183.jpg (1)
I was so excited when I went in a store at the mall with my teen-age daughter a few days ago, and saw the clothing from the 80’s was back in style. Isn’t it amazing how styles change, and people scramble to make sure they are keeping up. Imagine the whole “Miami Vice” look coming back — brings a little tear to your eye doesn’t it? While leg warmers, parachute pants, and other great things may be back in style for a little while, some things like a little black dress or a strand of pearls are timeless and never go out of style. It is the same with new luxury homes in Richmond by Boone Homes, our homes are built to be timeless. Our styles and designs are created to look as good in 10, 20 or even 30 years as they do now. That is an important thing to consider when making an investment in a home. Whether you plan to stay in your new home forever, or re-sell in ten years, it is important that it stay in “style”.

Designed with Tradition in Mind…Your Tradition

One of the most beautiful times of the year is fall. While the heat of the summer melds into the history books with the pint sized Jedi and pixies of Halloween, the crisp clean air of fall evokes traditions. Traditions that have been in incubation all year hatch in the kitchen surrounded by miniature sugar elves covered in powder sugar and dotted with multi-colored sprinkles. What a great time for nut covered candied apples, laced top apple pie and sugar cookies angels adorned with frosting. The kitchen certainly does enhance the memories of a well-executed tradition.

Your New Home: Merely Shelter? Or Magical Faire?

Everyone needs a safe resting place to hide from snow, rain and heat. The need for shelter is one of the most basic needs of humanity. But what about a place where family can trade care, stress, appointments, and business for a conversation immersed in comfort and privacy? Does a place like that exist? Magic does happen…I’d like to say it does for those who purchase Richmond new homes from Boone Homes.

Too much time is spent maintaining a schedule.

When is there ever just a time for me? Not enough time to decompress, sleep in, pamper…or simply hide. What if? You know, what if home was designed as a fortified castle in which to retreat, draw up the moat and disappear?

When you are out driving around looking for Roanoke new homes, you might be completely surprised by a totally different style of home. It’s not the typical Colonials you expect to see in neighborhoods like Hampshire, The Groves or Roselawn Homes at Stone Manor. The style is Arts & Crafts, also known as Craftsman. It originated in the late 1800’s to show that simplicity could be just as beautiful as ornate, and it is not limited to just architecture but also encompasses interior design. The style has evolved over the years in different regions of the country. Boone Homes has made a commitment to not only offer Arts & Crafts style on the exterior, but to carry the style throughout the home.
