It is a three homes in one tour event, Saturday October 13 in Hood River! One of our finished home, and two of our homes in progress will be open for you to tour. Meet our project managers and builder Cameron Curtis, see a home in progress and the finished product. These three homes are sold, BUT we have two homes (see info below) for sale on the same street. Learn about the homes for sale and tour a house built by the Curtis Homes team!
It has been a full summer for Curtis Homes and the blog has taken a back seat to the fun! In addition to building homes our team volunteered to help build a park! A portion of every home sale we give back to the community. Building strong communities is so important!
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!
If you have been checking up on our “Homes for Sale” tab you have seen the four new homes we listed in Hood River, Oregon. A home plan that is the favorite of many families is the Olympia home plan by Alan Mascord. This home is being built in the neighborhood on the Heights of Hood River off of Sievercropp drive in the Mt. Vista neighborhood. The neighborhood is well-known for having a park in walking distance, views of the surrounding hills, great location, family-friendly and beautiful new homes!
Four homes are under construction and for sale. If you purchase your home early in the building process the finishes will be up to you! You can style the home you’d like.
It is January 2018, here at Curtis Homes we all couldn’t be more excited! Our team is working hard on a lot of building in Hood River, Bend Oregon and White Salmon Washington. An exciting project taking shape is the Gilbert Neighborhood in Hood River, Oregon.
This neighborhood is special to Curtis Homes! We will have a model home in the eight-lot subdivision and each home has been custom designed by Muddy River Design! The house exteriors will work together to create a cohesive design, while each a differing style. There will be a craftsman, prairie, farmhouse, traditional and mid-century style of home in the neighborhood. The goal is have each home be unique, while working together to create a beautiful neighborhood.
In effort to continue our commitment to building homes that will last and be a legacy for families to live in; we are now an Energy Trust of Oregon certified builder.
This is a home in the Mt. View neighborhood on the Heights of Hood River, Oregon. This is the first EPS Certified home in Hood River. We are using a blow in BIBS system to increase the R-Value in the walls and create a better air seal and tighter home. We also used advance framing techniques to reduce air leakage and increase efficiency. We will share more in the future about the mechanical unit and water heater that will set this home apart in the community. At Curtis Homes we strive be participating in building homes that will be sustainable and energy efficient.
Thad, Curtis Homes Project Manager, has been busy in the shop building a Little Free Library to put on Goose Way (off of May Street) in Hood River. There are many of these stand alone libraries in Hood River built by local High School students. These libraries promote reading, sharing and add character to our local neighborhoods. The idea is you take a book from the little library and replace it with a book of your own. Look for more pictures of the finished library on our Instagram or Facebook pages.
Many people are looking for ways to add efficiency to a space, while cutting back on “stuff”. To some people “stuff” means items that aren’t a need or unused items. These objects clutter-up our homes and lives!
Have you ever thought that to much furniture can add to the “stuff” problem or be the problem? Instead of buying furniture add built-ins to a home. Built-ins store the items a family will use everyday in a place that makes sense. Customizing built-ins for a room will mean there is no bulky furniture to put clutter on top off or break the flow of the space. The difference between a built-in and furniture, is that a built-in adds permanent value and character to a home! Think about how to use built-in shelves, a buffet or window seat to maximize a room’s space.
