Winter Snow Tips

As the snow begins to build up it is a good idea to keep your Winter home maintenance up! Below are a few helpful tips in preparing for more snow.


  • Remove snow from your gutters. Great tools to aid in this process can be found at Tum A Lum Lumber to prevent ice damming.
  • Make sure all of your hoses are disconnected and no outside water is connected or on.
  • Keep all of your condensation lines and HVAC equipment free of snow and prevent freezing. Any lines that freeze can prevent the unit from working.
  • It is a good idea to remove snow 5-8′ around your house so when it melts the water is not building up around your foundation.
  • It is also a good idea to remove snow around fire hydrants. If ever needed it is important emergency personnel can find it quickly.
  • If you have a shallow pitch roof it is important with large accumulations of snow to remove snow to prevent extra weight as well as ice damming.
  • Keep some supplies handy if you need to lay low for a few days.

We hope you all enjoy the snow and have a safe and fun time with your families!

Gilbert Neighborhood Update

The eight lot neighborhood, with differing home styles by Muddy River Design, is taking shape and families are moving into finished homes.  Cameron and Curtis Homes’ Team are proud of this neighborhood!  We want to bring to our industry and community an energy efficient neighborhood with classic looking homes with lots of built-in character. Homes that are sustainable as well as beautiful!  

Each home has an energy rating from the Energy Trust of Oregon upon completion.  This rating will stay with the home as a rating on it’s energy standard.  We use energy sustaining building techniques as well as products that set these family homes up for success.  

In conjunction with a livable and sustainable home is the unique design of every home, we have a craftsman, traditional, farmhouse, prairie, foursquare style homes.  As you pass through the street each home stands alone as a special and vibrant part of the neighborhood.  There is one lot left!

Follow the process more closely by following up on Instagram.  Look-up #gilberthomesHR to see the whole journey!

Energy Trust of Oregon Visits!

Thank you Energy Trust Oregon for touring two of our homes in our Gilbert Neighborhood, Hood River, Oregon. The Gilbert Neighborhood homes are special, all designed to be energy efficient and have an EPS score.  The EPS score is a way of measuring how energy efficient is the home. The houses in Gilbert make-up the first neighborhood in Hood River, Oregon to to all have an EPS rating! If you haven’t heard of the Energy Trust of Oregon, head to their website to learn more about their mission of helping homeowners and the building industry work towards being more “green” or energy efficient or even net-zero.  There are many ways Curtis Homes builds mindfully and energy conscious. Some techniques are hidden once the home is finished, and some of the methods are visible in daily use of the finished home.  Two examples, are wrapping a home in an outer insulation called a thermo sheathing, which gets siding on top of it, but works hard for the home keeping in warmth or cold AC air. In contrast to the unseen energy updates, inside the whole house is fitted with LED lighting on dimmers and a plethora of well placed windows for natural light.  

To learn more ask Curtis Homes about helping your home be more energy efficient!
