While a lot of homeowners started gardening due to the pandemic, a survey found that 86 percent of its participants actually planned to continue gardening.

So what if you’re just starting your garden? It can be fun, but also overwhelming if you don’t know what to plant. Luckily, we’re here to help you out. Oklahoma is home to several well-known garden influencers, including Linda Vater and Dee Nash. (And lifestyle maven Martha Stewart was recently in town and bought Eastern Redbud trees at the Stringer Nursery in Tulsa.) 

Our landscaper, Andy Zupan, offers his recommendations for plants that are easy to grow and do well in our Oklahoma climate! (Not every plant loves our clay soil and hot dry temps.) He’s included a mix of annuals and perennials, and a stunning variety of colors and textures. Any or all of these would make a great addition to any garden.

Read on to learn the best plants for your Oklahoma Garden.

 

1. Lamb’s Ear

 

Lamb’s ear, or Stachys, is a great perennial — especially if you have a bright & sunny yard. While it can thrive in the sun, it does better with afternoon shade during the hotter months. If your yard is prone to deer and rabbits, it will also hold up well against them. This plant’s flowers are soft and elongated, with silvery-gray foliage that resembles a lamb’s ear. It blooms light purple in summer, and it looks beautiful when paired with brighter annuals.

 

2. Coleus

 

With so many varieties, finding a coleus variation that fits your preference is easy to do. It is drought-tolerant and can handle bright amounts of light during hot summers. Since there are so many kinds of coleus, it pairs well with a lot of different plants, but looks especially great with native prairie plants

 

3. Lantana 

 

Lantana plants have a unique vine-like sprawling appearance from woody branches, making them popular to grow in outdoor hanging baskets or as ground covers. Lantana is known for its rounded clusters of small, brightly colored flowers that may be yellow, orange, white, red, pink, blue, or purple. Although they may act like a vine, they are classified by botanists as shrubs and are often used as border shrubs and as ground cover in areas with full sunshine in warm climates. Lantana plants like full sun and thrive in well-draining soil. 

 

4. Hosta

 

Hostas are a perfect option for shady gardens. Whether in-ground or in a container, these plants are tolerant of shaded areas but tend to prefer slightly sunny gardens whenever it is grown. It can be difficult to start from a seed, so it’s best to purchase them as a started plant or to acquire them as a cutting. Patience is also key with Hostas, as it can take up to three years for the plants to grow fully.

 

5. Daylilies

 

Daylilies are great for planting first thing in the spring or fall. Remember, however, to not plant them newly during the summer, as the hot temperatures on a developing root system can lead to root rot. Perfect for growing in full sun conditions, daylilies require at least weekly watering during dry spells; they prefer to live in moist conditions. But during the rainy season, you won’t have to water them yourself.

Ready to Get Started With Your Oklahoma Garden?

 

Now that we’ve gone over what’s best for your Oklahoma Garden, are you ready to get started? All the plants we’ve talked about are going to grow wonderfully in your yard, and they’re likely to attract butterflies and other types of wildlife.

If you’re moving into a new home, now is a great time to start planning your landscaping. Luckily, Beacon Homes can help you out! Contact us today to get started.



Beacon Homes provides a choice of professionally-curated interior design collections for every home we build, but sometimes the best trends are the ones embraced first by our customers. We love keeping track of the features, finishes, and styles that resonate with our buyers, because it helps us put together looks that they and future customers will enjoy even more. Here’s Chelsea Harper, Beacon Homes’ in-house designer, on the top-requested design trends from buyers so far in 2022!

Ceiling Beams in Rich Wood Tones 

Rustic yet elegant, exposed ceiling beams lend a sense of drama and strength to any room. Though decorative beams come in many styles and finishes, our homeowners are leaning more toward the elegant rather than the rustic. The sleek and modern look of maple has been a favorite finish that continues its reign into 2022.

Dark Painted Walls

Dark walls are an entire mood this season, and our customers can’t get enough. They’ve been painting accent walls and even entire rooms — like a powder bath or study — a deep, moody color like Sherwin Williams’ Iron Ore. This is also the color I painted the powder bath in our new model and it’s getting really great feedback from prospects.

Oversized Subway Tile 

White subway tile as a kitchen backsplash or shower surround is a classic choice because it looks great in any home with any design style. To add an interesting twist but still maintain that timeless appeal, our homeowners have been choosing 3″x12″ or 4″x16″ tile rather than the standard 3″x6″ size. The result is an elevated look that still allows their quartz countertops and wood cabinetry to shine. 

Light Wood Floors 

When it comes to flooring, a majority of our customers are choosing light wood or wood-look ceramic tiles. This is a modern, fresh, natural look that pairs well with the dark accent paint that many people are using. Lighter floors make a space feel larger and more open by reflecting the light, and they also allow beautiful furniture or decor to stand out. 

Built-In Workspaces

Many of our customers have found themselves working from home lately, so there is a definite need to incorporate a home office into their new space. Even if they were not able to dedicate an entire room to a home office, they creatively added built-in desks and storage for work zones or study spaces. Working from home is a reality for many these days, and our customers are making sure their homes make it easier.

Glam Light Fixtures

For many of our customers, the concept of “home” is now multidimensional. It’s the place where they eat and sleep, but also where they enjoy more elegant experiences, too. Dramatic light fixtures in the kitchen and dining room enhance the ambiance. We’re seeing lots of champagne bronze mixed with other finishes like matte black or brushed nickel to create a “wow” factor.

Unprecedented demand for new homes is impacting everything from materials to timelines, but home building is moving forward

Since 2003, Beacon Homes has been committed to building homes with the utmost quality, excellence, and integrity for families in our community. We lead with exceptional customer service and industry innovation that give our homeowners an experience that exceeds their expectations. Above all else, we value your trust in us. That’s why we wanted to share exactly what’s happening in the housing market today and how it’s impacting home building, so that you feel prepared and confident, and we can move forward with building your dream home together!

Supply and Demand

Over the last 14 months, the housing industry has been dramatically impacted by pandemic-related events. While housing has been, and continues to be, a bright spot in the nation’s economy, we are now facing unique challenges that impact everything from product availability and costs to building timelines.

The dynamic at the base of all the current challenges is a textbook case of supply and demand. There is an incredible demand for new homes right now, and not enough supply of materials to build them as quickly as the market wants. This has led to increased costs and extended build times.

The rising cost of lumber has been the most news-worthy event in the housing industry. About 80% of the lumber used in U.S. home construction is imported from Canada. Many lumber mills, both in Canada and the U.S., were forced to shut down in 2020 due to health concerns.

At the same time, an unprecedented combination of factors – including record low interest rates, newly remote employees and virtually-schooled children needing more space, and the general desire for people to change their living situations during the pandemic – led to a surge in demand for new housing and home renovations, all of which require lumber and building materials.

High demand and low supply drove costs up exponentially. Lumber prices have risen 250% from last April and continue to climb. Today, suppliers are trying to catch up amid new health regulations, but there simply isn’t enough lumber yet to meet demand, or the cost is prohibitive for builders, and timelines for new homes are being pushed out longer than usual.

Lumber is only one example. Product delays and suspensions are affecting everything from concrete, cabinets, and appliances to paint, sheetrock, and sealants. Nearly every line item in a home’s budget has been impacted.

The Impact on New Homes and Homebuyers

Homes are more expensive to build. The cost to build a new home has increased substantially because materials are scarce and more expensive. The National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) has estimated that, based on a $350,000 home, the cost has increased by $24,000 based on lumber alone. That number shifts depending on the size of the home.

Builders must substitute products and finishes. In order to keep a new construction home on schedule, builders must make on-the-spot decisions when they are notified that a product is no longer available. As a result, they may not be able to guarantee certain brand names or colors of products. In some cases, they may not be able to provide the product at all.

Build timelines are longer than usual. Builders are doing everything they can to stay on schedule for builds that have already started. However, product substitutions with little or no notice can cause significant changes to the building process for future homes and lead times can become unpredictable. In general, building timelines have increased by about two months.

Builders are making hard decisions and finding solutions. Rather than face the uncertainty of supply costs and product availability, some builders are pausing sales until they can provide buyers with a definite cost and/or build time. Many builders have turned to wait lists or lotteries to manage interest. At Beacon Homes, we are offering a set number of slots to build a home each month. This allows us to keep an even flow of materials and labor which helps keep our schedules and costs in check. And for move-in ready homes, we’re waiting for framing materials to be purchased so we can give accurate pricing. The goal is to avoid any further delays by including only products and materials that are immediately available, in order to build homes faster and help meet consumer demand.

Looking Forward

NAHB is taking steps to mitigate the lumber shortage by urging Congress to work with domestic mills to increase production and end tariffs on Canadian lumber shipments into the U.S. As demand for suburban housing cools a bit and material suppliers have an opportunity to catch up, the entire housing industry should stabilize. We’re confident that home building — along with its positive economic impacts like job creation and tax generation — will stabilize soon.

It’s still a great time, though, to commit to building a new home because interest rates remain so low.  We recommend taking these three steps so that you are prepared and ready to act when you find the home for you:

  • Understand price increases – so that you are educated on the reason your new home costs what it does, and you are prepared and comfortable with making a deposit.
  • Get pre-approved – so that you can act fast when the home you want becomes available. 
  • Join interest lists – so that you are the first to be notified when communities release more homesites for sale.

At Beacon Homes, our team takes great care daily to minimize the obstacles the home building industry is facing, and to keep construction on track for our customers.  We will continue to problem solve to ensure our homeowners receive the quality home and first-rate customer service Beacon Homes is known for.

If you are considering making a move to Oklahoma City or Tulsa, we still have a few available homes, but we recommend that you act quickly! For more information, or to schedule an appointment, please contact Cori at 405-358-8615.



Congratulations! You’ve just purchased your new home, and you’re so excited about moving in. This home is probably much more spacious than your last one, and now you’ve got so many new and interesting spaces to decorate. But let’s also be honest, you just bought a new house, and maybe some much-needed furniture, and your decorating budget has… dwindled.

We’ve got some fantastic news – making a new house feel like home doesn’t have to cost much. In fact, there’s a good chance you’ve already got lots of things you can use to create that warm, comfortable, inviting feeling we all appreciate in a family home.

The key is to decorate your home with items that invoke a memory, are part of a story, or that you personally find beautiful. We all scroll home design accounts on social media to feel inspired, but those are model homes, and the price tag can be staggering. Your home doesn’t have to look like a model in order to feel like home. It just has to reflect you and your family’s personality and style. Here are a few ways to do that on a dime.

How to Personalize Your New Home

1) Make it Personal

Model homes and designer Instagram accounts feature gorgeous, high-end artwork. But for many people, spending thousands of dollars on original art just isn’t realistic. Even reproductions can be pricey. The one thing you do likely have in abundance is photos on your phone. These are the perfect reflections of your family and should be framed and hung!

Look for casual and candid pictures, rather than overly posed ones. The hardest part is often remembering to get them OUT of your phone. An easy trick is to use an app like Shutterstock to order inexpensive prints. A service like Level Frames will even frame the photos for you and ship them straight to your door.

Photos aren’t the only personal items you can frame. A beautiful handwritten note from a loved one, a series of postcards, or even a recipe written in your grandmother’s handwriting make for beautiful and meaningful displays of art.

Kids’ drawings and paintings are also fantastic items to frame. Take their best work off of the refrigerator and hang them in a series in your child’s bedroom or playroom – they are the perfect colorful complement to youth décor.

One last tip to make your home feel more personal is to display your travel memorabilia or collections. Whether you collect coffee mugs, shot glasses, silver spoons, or snow globes in every city you visit, reserve a shelf or two in the house to display them. They’ll remind you of your travels and be a great conversation starter when friends come to visit.

2) Dress Up Your Windows

Though the minimalist design look is in right now, with barely anything more than blinds to cover a window, curtains and drapes instantly create a warmer, more pulled-together space.

Window coverings can be expensive, but we have a hack that only costs a few dollars. Hang cotton tablecloths as curtains. Yes, you read that right! We promise that guests will never know the difference. Shop your favorite big box retailer for the longest tablecloths you can find – usually 108 inches, or 9 feet. Pick up some curtain rings with clips that match the finishes in your home, and hang those tablecloths from a curtain rod! The result is a lightweight, modern-looking, exquisitely long curtain that, if hung at the correct height, will pool slightly at the bottom, creating an effortless, elegant window dressing.

3) Plants, Please!

Some people think interior design is hard, but the easiest and least expensive trick in the book is just adding plants! Don’t overthink it – just head to your local nursery and choose a few that catch your attention. Re-pot them if necessary, then use them to fill spaces in your home that need a little extra attention. You can cluster small plants on a shelf for a modern look, or fill an empty corner with a towering tree. Some of our favorite plants that do well indoors are monsteras, pathos, fiddle leaf figs, succulents, bamboo, spider plants, snake plants, and majesty palms.

Though plants are inexpensive compared to other types of décor, you can save here, too – just take a look around your property. If your new home is landscaped with mature roses, hydrangeas, or even just beautiful long grasses or slender tree branches – clip a few and put them in water in an elegant clear vase. Your home will be instantly transformed.

If you happened to be born without a green thumb, we’ve got you covered! You can still enjoy the look of greenery by incorporating faux plants into your décor. These are not the plastic-looking, painfully obvious fake plants of yesteryear. Today’s artificials are incredibly textured and life-like, and add that same fresh, airy look to any home.

Your new home doesn’t have to look Instagram-perfect. In fact, we think that adding personal touches and creative design ideas makes it better than perfect – it makes it yours. And that’s the most beautiful home there is.

There’s no better time than the beginning of a new year to give your home a “mini makeover.” As you look ahead to 2021, think about the areas of your home that you’d like to spruce up a little (or a lot)! From two-tone kitchen cabinets to the Pantone colors of the year, there are so many fun trends to try out in your favorite spaces. Take a look at a few of our top home design trends for 2021.

Home Interior Design Trends

Two-Tone Cabinets: When it comes to your kitchen cabinetry, two is better than one! We love the eye-catching look of upper and lower cabinets in two different colors, and the best part is that you have a variety of unique combinations to try. Whether you enjoy soft, light colors like white and powder blue, or a “farmhouse chic” look with black and gold, you’re bound to find the perfect color scheme to reflect your style.

Statement Headboards: Nothing says “relaxation” quite like a beautifully designed bedroom. And nothing completes a well-rounded look than a statement headboard for the bed. This year, it’s all about vibrant, lively headboards that become a focal point in the room. From tufted and nailhead styles, to geometric patterns and bright colors, the options are endless. Plus, you can paint an accent wall behind it to complement the look!

Indoor houseplants next to a window in a beautifully designed home or flat interior.

House Plants: If you love the calming, natural aura of house plants, situate them throughout your favorite spaces, like your kitchen, bedroom, or living room. This is an easy way to spruce up your home without having to make a big adjustment. Try herbs, peace lilies, English ivy, pothos, Chinese evergreens, and more to brighten up your rooms. You can also add pops of color and personality with unique planters.

Grandmillennial: Yes, you read “grandmillennial” right! This up-and-coming style is all about comfort, and incorporating the “homey” decor pieces you might find in your grandparents’ home into modern spaces. The grandmillennial trend includes things like floral wallpaper, rattan coffee tables, antique paintings, scalloped lampshades, delicate china, crocheted throws, and more. Get creative and see what feels right!

Pantone trend color of the Year 2021 Illuminating yellow and Ultimate Grey. Texture of old neutral gray paper background, macro. Modern backdrop with geometric shape.

Ultimate Gray and Illuminating (Yellow): Every year, Pantone announces a “color of the year” that embodies a unique message. For 2021, they chose Pantone 17-5104 Ultimate Gray and Pantone 13-0647 Illuminating (yellow), two uplifting colors that convey strength and hopefulness. These soft, modern hues work beautifully together (and apart) in any space; try using them as wall colors, in furniture accessories, throughout table displays, and more. Pantone’s yearly colors provide endless opportunities to give your home the fresh, contemporary vibe you’re looking for in the new year. And you don’t have to stop there — take a look at the unique shades that major paint companies have chosen to highlight this year!

Best of all, when you decide to build a new home in Oklahoma with us, you’ll get to choose from 8 themed design packages that set the tone for your home, from “Modern Farmhouse” with a fresh gray and white palette to “The Mix” with strong accent colors and fun patterns for your fixtures, tile, cabinetry, and beyond.

From all of us at Beacon Homes, we hope you have a fun time sprucing up your home in 2021!

Movie magic. Who says you can’t experience the joy of a movie theater at home? Whether with friends or by yourself, get comfortable with classic movie-theater candy and popcorn — and hit the lights!

  • Windmill Point: Want a cozy, personal space for some peace and quiet? Cut the pantry in half and use the back corner as a pocket office or make use of your spacious upstairs loft!
  • Charlotte: The compact flex space in this plan is perfect to use as a peaceful, private office nook, a workout room (it fits your Peloton perfectly!), and more.
  • London: An optional pocket office can be used however you wish, from a small gallery to a wine room. The study can also open up to the master suite, which would be a great place to exercise.
  • Charleston: This beautiful home has the unique option to turn the master patio into interior space (that can be partially enclosed). Fun fact: we once built a “catio”… extra space for the homeowner’s cat! 

Your Space, Your Life

We know that no two homeowners are alike, so we designed each of our modern, stylish plans with the adaptable space you need. Design and decorate your open spaces however you want and need for now — and switch them up when you’re ready for something new. There’s no limit to what your home can become! 

As you look ahead to more space, more comfort, more everything, you can be sure that your highly functional Beacon home gives you more out of life. For more information about our beautiful homes throughout Edmond, please contact us at 405-358-8615. We can’t wait to get started!



When you trust us to build your new home in Edmond, the first-rate features that keep your family safe, comfortable, and happy are never optional — they’re standard. Our biggest passion is providing a home that’s built smart, built healthy, built to last, and we’re able to do that by including features that other builders may overlook or offer as options. 

Take a look at what’s included in every single Beacon home to ensure the happiest, healthiest experience for you and your family.

New Home Features 

Rinnai® tankless water heater. Energy efficient, money-saving, and always reliable — just as it should be.

Pella® windows. Every window in our homes meets or exceeds ENERGY STAR® standards. (And Pella is known as a leader in technology and product innovation.)

R45 attic insulation. The attic can be the hottest place in a home… but not in any of ours. We use blown-in insulation beyond what is required by code to keep which keeps all of your conditioned spaces in your home cooler. 

Storm shelter. Protecting your family from dangerous weather should never be optional, which is why we give you a Storm Safe in-ground shelter for 6 to 8 people, located in the garage. 

Heavy-duty, full-extension drawer slides. Details matter, right down to the drawer glides. These operate so smoothly and quietly you’ll never even know they’re there. 

Outdoor fireplace. With your very own brick, wood-burning fireplace with a gas starter, you can add “cozy night under the stars” to your daily schedule. 

At Beacon Homes, superior quality is simply standard. That’s our guarantee. When you and your family are ready for a new place to call your own, you can be sure that a new home gives you more out of life — because it’s built with more of what you want and need.

At Beacon Homes, we believe that the place where you spend your days, grow with your family, and turn to for comfort and security should be built smart, built healthy, and built to last. That’s why we hold our living spaces to the highest standard — and ensure that they enhance every moment you spend at home.

From milestones and holidays to cozy weekend brunches and evening get-togethers, we want every experience to be memorable, big and small. With high-end technology and products, we’ve taken home to another level of innovation, and promise that you’ll always have peace of mind when you’re there. 

Built Smart

Intuitive and reliable, today’s best smart features and products are seamlessly integrated to make your home easier to maintain and safer to live in. A WiFi thermostat, smart oven, and z-wave switches make your home more convenient; a smart lock, smart doorbell, and smart security make your home safer; and a myQ garage, smart panel, and USB outlets make your home more intelligent.

Whether you’re at home or you’re away, you should have 24/7 peace of mind. Did you know that the smart door lock allows you to set temporary user codes for contractors, house cleaners, and family members to enter safely? Finally, you can keep watch on your home at all times — without the effort or worry. Contemporary, convenient, and cutting-edge technology does the work… so you can do the living and enjoy the savings you get from already having these features installed before you move in. 

Built Healthy

You already know there’s nothing more important than the health and wellness of you and your family. That’s why we prioritize eco-friendly features and products that guarantee your home is more durable, comfortable, and energy efficient, and always has the cleanest, healthiest air. 

With fresh air systems, a house wrap system, a Schluter® shower system, a direct-vent fireplace, and low-VOC paints, you can always rest easy knowing that your home cares just as much about you and your family’s health as you do. These high-quality features reduce the risk of harmful pollutants, keep your living space efficient and improve indoor air quality which is great for those who suffer from asthma and allergies. Our fresh air systems deliver clean filtered air by MERV filter, fresh air intake, and UV light killing bacteria in the air. You’ll sleep well every night (and enjoy every day) knowing your family is always being taken care with the cleanest, healthiest air possible. 

Built to Last

At Beacon Homes, building a high-quality living space that promises lasting happiness starts with a lot of thought and care. We create your home with only the best techniques and materials, so that what’s behind the walls is just as impressive as what’s in front of them.

A few of the many top-notch features we incorporate to guarantee a home that will last include a professionally engineered foundation, Energy Star® rated vinyl Pella windows, a vapor barrier to prevent mold and mildew, energy-saving LED lighting throughout the home, R-45 insulated duct work to prevent heat/cool loss, termite treatment, Rinnai tankless water heater, and so much more. Sit back, relax, and enjoy the incomparable comfort of home — it’s all yours.

To us, home is your base, your sanctuary, and your greatest source of comfort. We promise that your Beacon living space is built with your quality of life at the forefront — now and down the road. Because when it comes to you and your family, health, comfort, and happiness should be a constant in your home. Go ahead and experience your best days yet. You deserve it.

Take a look at a few of our ideas to celebrate the day of love in your home.

Romantic Stay at Home Valentine’s Day Ideas

Light the fire. It’s chilly outside, but it’s nice and warm inside your cozy Beacon home. Grab a bottle of wine and curl up under a fuzzy blanket together… there’s nothing more romantic than the embrace of your fireplace.

Dinner for two. With gourmet appliances, treating your sweetheart to a homemade meal is so easy. Enjoy wine and hors d’oeuvres at your kitchen island, then take the main course to your lovely dining room.

Spa day. Who says you have to leave your home to enjoy the spa? Pamper yourselves in your luxurious master bathroom with hot showers, a relaxing soak in the tub, or even simple face masks and massages.

Movie date. There’s nothing sweeter than sharing your favorite flick together. In your spacious living room, relive teenhood memories of dates at the movies with popcorn, chocolate, and a little hand holding.

Breakfast in bed. Wake up to a little extra love! Enjoy eggs, bagels, and coffee from the comfort of your cozy bed sheets. Prepare ahead of time with a bed tray table that holds everything with ease. 

Watch the game. Yes, even sports can be romantic. After all, you and your sweetheart know exactly what incredible teamwork means. Grab your favorite snacks, put the game on, and cheer like it’s the championship.

Happy hour. As the sun goes down, sit back and relax on your peaceful and private patio.. Light a fire in a fire pit or hang up a few string lights to add that “in-love glow.”

From all of us atBeacon Homes, we hope you enjoy Valentine’s Day in your beautiful living space! 



At Beacon Homes, we believe your home should reflect you inside and out — and while a used home has most of the “pieces,” they don’t necessarily fit together the way you want them to. You might ask yourself: Is there enough storage space? How old are the appliances? Do I have any flexibility for a home office, playroom, etc.?

This is where Beacon Homes comes in. With a squeaky clean new home as your canvas, as opposed to a used one that someone has already lived in, you get to experience superior quality while making it entirely your own. Take a look at the advantages of a new Beacon home vs. any used home you’ve seen before:

1. Brand New Systems. In a new Beacon home, plumbing, electric, heating, and cooling are all state-of-the-art and covered by a warranty. In a used home, you may face old or antiquated systems — and who wants to deal with the headache that comes with repairs, code concerns, and maintenance issues? In one of our spacious and luxurious homes, all of your systems are bright, shiny, and new.

2. Style and Design. Families today don’t live the same way families lived a decade ago. While a used home reflects the lifestyle of another family from another time, a brand new Beacon home speaks to you and your family today. With everything from modern, innovative floor plans to new systems and smart home features, we can design a new home that complements your unique lifestyle perfectly.

3. New Warranty. Unlike existing homes, new Beacon homes come with a 1-year limited warranty — but that’s not the only way we guarantee your peace of mind. In terms of your HVAC, we offer a 10-year warranty on parts and the compressor, a 20-year warranty on the heat exchanger once it’s registered at ICP.com, and a 1-year warranty on labor. We also offer a 10-year warranty on your hot water heater, and a lifetime warranty on your plumbing fixtures. Although our high-quality homes are built with the greatest care, you’re completely covered if a defect occurs. Finally, the absurd costs that come with repairs are a thing of the past.

4. Health and Wellness. While used homes were not built to current health standards, we ensure that every new Beacon home is built with thoughtful, eco-friendly choices that provide cleaner air, as well as make your home more durable, comfortable, and energy efficient.Say goodbye to dust, mold, and other pollutants with features like a direct vent fireplace, a Schluter®-Shower System, a MERV 13 filter, fresh air intake, and a UV light to kill bacteria in the air.

5. Smart Home Features. Today’s technological advances make your life easier and more convenient, and you deserve to have this kind of comfort right in your home. Adding new features to an old home would cost a fortune — but every new Beacon home comes fully equipped with the smart home features you know and love, like a WiFi thermostat, smart oven, smart lock, smart doorbell, smart garage door, and so much more.

Aside from saving you money in the long run (did you know that a used home often has double the insurance costs of a new home?), a brand new Beacon home in one of the best family-friendly neighborhoods will make the moments you spend in your home more enjoyable than you can imagine. At Beacon Homes, we say out with the old, in with the new… here’s to 2020!
