California Dreaming

A few weeks ago, when the low here in North Carolina was 6° and the high was 21°, Paige, Brian, Greg and I were all fortunate enough to be visiting sunny California. Now in California, the low was 60° and the daily high 75° -- not too shabby! Luckily, now we are in the 70s or else you would have stopped reading this immediately. So why were we across the country? We were on a fact finding mission of sorts, seeing homes and gathering information about some of the latest building trends.... Full Post >

International Home Builders Show

The International home builder’s show was HUGE this year – a good sign for the economic rebound!  The most common theme revolved around 3 words – kitchens and baths.  Quartz is in, stainless steel appliances are still in and faucets/fixtures come in at least 8 different finishes.  Grey is the color of choice and lighting options are incredible.  Energy efficiency still remains a big player and overall low maintenance “green” products are a must.  After 20+ miles of walking, Paige...

The Planning of a New Neighborhood

For Fitch Creations, Inc., creating a new neighborhood has never been simply a matter of knocking down trees. Years of thought and careful planning take place before any land is disturbed or tree removed. The main consideration is to preserve the beauty and integrity of the land while at the same time, establishing a place where people can live in and enjoy their natural surroundings. Would it be easier to clear cut the trees and level the land? Sure, but as anyone who lives or visits... Full Post >

The Newest Home Building Trends

What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas – not this time! This year’s International Home Builder's Show was combined with the Industry’s Kitchen and Bath show and the combination made for an exciting and educational experience. It was great to see what styles will be hot this year -- think gray! We saw all the new appliances, faucets, counter tops, and the list goes on and on. The wood-look porcelain tile was one of the best new products we saw. Often a big design dilemma for folks... Full Post >

Rutherford is Shaping Up

The Certain Teed cedar shake polymer exterior is finally far enough along at Rutherford Close to get a real feel for the end result (it’s a new color so we’ve been anxiously waiting) and, it’s awesome! The soft gray has a lot of depth which offsets the white trim perfectly. It’s not quite finished, but if you haven’t driven by yet, put it on your next outing and see for yourself! - Laura, Real Estate Manager Full Post >

Down to the Final Touches

Our first home in Rutherford Close is moving closer to completion! Sheetrock and trim are up and painted, and the kitchen and bathroom cabinetry has been installed. Our first Rutherford Close home should be finished within the next few weeks. This unit has beautiful views of rolling Beltie pastures. Call us to schedule a look! - Greg, VP Fitch Creations, Inc.

Window Shopping

During the summer, RB and I decided it was time to do some window shopping for our new houses. I set up a few appointments with vendors, the first one being with Atrium Windows. Atrium Windows started over 60 years ago in North Carolina and their regional office is in Welcome, NC. We were impressed with the quality (still tilt- wash and low e) and with the emphasis on customer service. Each individual window has its own identification code label on the window. If someone calls in with a... Full Post >
