Transform Your Outdoor Space for Summer

Summer is finally here! The warm weather and long days mean that we’ll all be spending more time outside and less time in our homes. You can utilize your home’s outdoor space in a number of ways. Here are a few ideas to inspire your party-perfect backyard!

  • The Owner’s Suite Balcony. Mid-Atlantic now offers the balcony as an option when building your home. It provides a great space to have your morning coffee, read a good book, or watch the kids play in the backyard. Check out the Owner’s Suite Balcony at The Villages of Savannah Modena model home!

  • A gathering table. Consider establishing a place for outdoor meals. A patio table and chairs will provide an ideal place to bring family and friends together to eat and socialize.
  • An outdoor fireplace. One of these will keep the party going after the sun goes down. The crackling fire brings warmth and great aroma while bringing family and friends together to celebrate longer days. Outdoor fireplaces are a great investment, because you will be able to use it well into the autumn season. There are several types of outdoor fireplaces available at a variety of price points.
  • Outdoor lighting. Set the mood outside your home with some fabulous outdoor lighting. Give your home a warm, welcoming look while assuring the safety of those walking about after dark. Solar-powered landscape lights are a great idea in the summer because of increased sun exposure during the day.

Make your Entryway Shine

What is the best way to downshift from a busy day or week?  Setting up an inspiring entryway to your home!  Embrace that easy, summery feeling the moment you step through the door by making a few adjustments to your entry.  Here are five ways to do just that.

  1. Set a relaxed, beachy tone. What is the first thing you’d love to see when you walk through the door?  Go ahead and pick something that represents the essence of summer to you and place it prominently in the entry.
  2. Keep summer essentials on display. You don’t have to hide all your beach gear in the closet.  Just the sight of it can conjure up memories of fun times spent with family and friends.  Keep a beach bag stocked with all of your essentials, from swimsuit to sunscreen, packed and ready by the door. After each trip to the beach, take the time to wash and repack everything, so you’ll be ready to go next time.
  3. Find stylish storage solutions. Of course there are things we all need easy access to that aren’t the most appealing to have on display.  Bring in some extra covered storage to load them up with the essentials.  You can even cover a basic round table with a floor-length cloth, and use the space underneath for storage.
  4. Lighten up a small space. Go for an airy feel in your entryway with an all-white color scheme. Lack of clutter is key here, so it helps to be vigilant about putting things away immediately.
  5. Give the stairs a bold new look. An entry that opens into a stairwell, like the Mid-Atlantic Builders Amherst model, gives you the opportunity to make a personal statement.  Line the area with photos or pops of your favorite color to give the area your own personal touch.

Memorial Day: A Time to Remember

Most people associate Memorial Day with the beginning of summer vacation, a day off of work, backyard barbecues and celebrations with family and friends. We must remember that Memorial Day is a special day to honor our veterans who served in the US Armed Forces. The holiday began after the Civil War, and was originally named “Decoration Day.” While initially founded to honor the soldiers who died in the Civil War, today Memorial Day honors all Americans who have served or died in military service.

From everyone at Mid-Atlantic Builders, enjoy your holiday weekend and take time to reflect on the brave sacrifices of our veterans and military families on Memorial Day.

New Mid-Atlantic Homeowners Saving Money with EnergySmart Homes

Mid-Atlantic homes are continuing to save new homeowners lots of money on their utility bills! Just last week, we received the news that our most recently constructed homes received HERS scores of 51 at The Villages of Savannah; 49, 50 and 52 at Beechtree; and 49 in Bethesda!

The HERS Index measures a home’s energy efficiency. HERS scores range from 130 (the least energy efficient home) to 25 (the most energy efficient home). Basically, the lower the HERS score number, the more energy efficient the home. Typical builders score between 85 and 100, efficient builders score between 65 and 85, and platinum standard builders score below 50 on the HERS index.

This new batch of low HERS scores equate to BIG savings for these new Mid-Atlantic homeowners. The Mid-Atlantic Builders Energy$mart program drastically lowers utility bill costs. Our homes are up to 80% more efficient than a 20-year old home, and 50% more efficient than a standard new home. And higher efficiency leads to lower monthly costs for you. Mid-Atlantic homeowners save up to 60% on their utility bills – just think of all the ways you could use the extra money you save!

To learn more about maximizing the savings and high efficiency associated with the Mid-Atlantic Energy$mart program, visit a Sales Center today!

The Architecture of Happiness

Fallingwater by Frank Lloyd Wright

Our built environment is a reflection of societal success. We are surrounded by both good and bad architecture. On one hand, bad architecture can leave us empty at best and saddened at worst. On the other hand, good architecture inspires and incites both happiness and joy. Well-designed places that people want to spend time in never lose their luster.

Architect Frank Lloyd Wright’s Fallingwater (pictured above) is a great example of happiness-inspiring architecture that has stood the test of time. Hailed by Time as Wright’s “most beautiful job,” Fallingwater promotes happiness by integrating architectural design and striking natural surroundings. Fallingwater achieves harmony between man and nature, offering feelings of peace and tranquility. Though it was designed in 1935, it still ranks on “best American architecture” and “places to visit before you die” lists.

What excites me most about Mid-Atlantic Builders is that we deliver architectural designs that promote happiness among our customers. From creative Chef’s Gourmet Kitchens, to relaxing Spa Baths, to entertaining Home Theaters, we offer thousands of designs and options that allow our customers to create their own version of architectural happiness. I welcome you to join us in our business of creating homes that will inspire your happiness.

Modena Model at The Villages of Savannah

Luxury, Style, Design, Personalized. That’s how we deliver happiness.

Mid-Atlantic Builders Celebrated as Featured Donor of the Week

Mid-Atlantic Builders philanthropy program has long been focused on housing-sponsored causes. For many years, we participated in the Fannie Mae Walk for the Homeless Campaign, which raises money and awareness for those without shelter. We are also very active in the Home Builders Care Foundation every year. Through the foundation, Mid-Atlantic captained the Home Builders Care Hearts and Homes for Youth project to repair a historic transitional boys’ home by bringing together business partners, employees and friends to work on the project. We built a model home with students of Prince George’s Foundation of Automotive & Construction Technology for Students (F.A.C.T.S), a non-profit Maryland corporation affiliated with the Prince George’s County School System. This program provides high school students with the opportunity to learn trade skills in carpentry, plumbing electrical, architectural drafting and landscape design.

Consistent with our history, I am proud to announce that Mid-Atlantic Builders is Home Builders Association of Maryland’s “Featured Donor of the Week!” The Home Builders Association of Maryland is a not-for-profit association founded in 1919 that provides governmental relations, educational opportunities and functions as a housing industry advocate and consumer resource. The Association is currently building and accepting donations for Maryland’s new home building and remodeling industry headquarters, the Maryland Center for Housing. The headquarters will also house the Building Industries Foundation, the Association’s charitable arm.

By promoting and encouraging the growth, strength and image of the building and housing industry, members of the Home Builders Association of Maryland produce, preserve and manage quality housing to meet the needs of the Maryland community. Mid-Atlantic is proud to be a member of the Home Builders Association of Maryland, and we look forward to the completion of its new headquarters!
