a letter from the president

homearama® 2011 executive Director Dan Dressman Chairman of the Board Josh Blatt President Rex Gordon Vice President/Treasurer Carolyn Rolfes Secretary John Ballantyne

Welcome to Foxborough and HOMEARAMA® 2011, our 49th edition of America’s Premier Home Show! Foxborough, a community designed by Cobblestone Development and The Drees Company, is the perfect location for the 49th HOMEARAMA®. We are proud to host this show in West Chester, one of Ohio’s most thriving townships. Foxborough straddles one of the highest points in Butler County providing sweeping vistas of the countryside and the alluring, evening lights of downtown. Another plus is that the community is located in Butler County’s much-sought after Lakota School District, one of the state’s highest performing school systems. HOMEARAMA® has a rich tradition in the region and this year’s show is no exception. You will experience quality craftsmanship, trendsetting designs and decorating and some other “wow factors” that are always part of the HOMEARAMA® experience. Each of the homes will have a featured bedroom designed with a budget of $2,500. Material sheets are available listing the item, price and source so that you can recreate the same bedroom in your own home. Our HomeZone tent provides a one-stop venue for attendees to check out a variety of home products and services at the show. Many of these vendors offer exclusive show discounts and prize drawings. Be sure to complete the Peoples’ Choice entry form and drop it in the collection box at the show entrance. Vote for your favorite rooms and the overall best home. A cash prize will be awarded to one lucky participant. Thanks for being a part of this year’s show.

Welcome

to the show!

Photo by Ron Kolb, HOMEARAMA® 2007

The HOMEARAMA® tradition lives on at the 49th show The HOMEARAMA® practice of bringing together a great group of homes that make a statement is once again at hand for this year’s show. The five offerings, ranging in price from $672,000 to $1,000,000, evoke thoughts of Europe, the Arts and Crafts movement, Northern inspirations and more that are sure to please even the most refined viewers. The convenient West Chester Township location is also a bonus feature this year. “These familyfriendly homes are based in the family-friendly community of Foxborough,” says Dan Dressman, executive director of the Home Builders Association. New faces and old favorites come together to create dynamic spaces that will be remembered and perhaps duplicated for years to come. The five formidable builders who are represented, along with their architects/design planners, interior designers and landscapers, showcase their fascinating design elements on a practical scale. The latest trends in technology, bathrooms, kitchens and liv-

12

ing spaces are married to the idea of mixing family time with entertaining. Rooms flow into one another, master suites are relaxing retreats and home offices have never been lovelier. “HOMEARAMA® offers you the opportunity to not only see the latest trends in home design and decorating, but also learn why buying a new home continues to represent an excellent value. Today’s new homes offer more energy-saving features than ever before, and with low interest rates and attractive pricing, there’s never been a better time to buy,” says David G. Drees of Zaring Premier Homes. Many talented people have been working around the clock to pull together just the right finishing touches for HOMEARAMA® 2011 at Foxborough. So have fun, gather great ideas and be inspired. Enjoy the show!

West Chester’s accessibility, location and quality of life is a huge

factor in its fast and tremendous growth. In 2010 CNN/MONEY Magazine ranked West Chester as the 32nd Best Place to Live in America. The story behind West Chester West Chester is a community of more than 60,000 residents and more than 3,000 businesses conveniently located along the I-75 corridor between Cincinnati and Dayton. One of the first settlers was Joseph McMaken. McMaken was born in Cumberland County, PA in 1755, and applied for land in West Chester on July 4, 1791. The community remained known as Union Township for more than 100 years until June 28, 2000 when Union Township became known as  West Chester Township, to reflect the identity of the area. West Chester is approximately 18 miles north of Cincinnati. Its history is connected to the beer industry having been home to the Muhlhausers, the Moerleins and other beer baron families. It’s also home today to prestigious residents including Speaker of the House John Boehner. West Chester’s accessibility, location and quality of life is a huge factor in its fast and tremendous growth.

New Brunswick

Zaring Premier Homes • 513-874-3534 • www.zaring.com The New Brunswick features three levels of living with a finished basement. The New Brunswick plan’s namesake comes from our northern neighbors—the Canadian coastal province of the same name and channels some northern inspiration. A delicate balance of modern and traditional can be seen in the entry. Informal areas of the kitchen, morning room, and gathering room take advantage of the exterior outdoor setting with expansive glass throughout the back. The family foyer provides a functional drop zone for coats, shopping bags and backpacks when entering from the garage. A first floor guest room could easily be converted to a home office offering flexible uses. Upstairs, the owner’s retreat bath and sleeping area are separated by a formal alcove, the spa bath to the left and the bedroom with double tray ceiling to the right. Featuring 5,493 square feet, the New Brunswick is expected to sell for $973,000.

America's finest homes are being built on our foundations. Maybe it's because Superior Walls is the leader in residential precast foundation systems. Maybe it's because our highstrength concrete walls are created in a factory-controlled environment with built-in insulation. Or maybe homeowners just like warm, dry basements. Whatever the reason, more new homes are resting on Superior Walls foundations.

Builders, interior designers and architects’ top picks for their most memorable concepts and spaces By Alice P. Drake

Like choosing a favorite color, ice cream flavor or type of music, sometimes it feels like there is no decision tougher to make. So naturally we asked this year’s HOMEARAMA® builders, architects and interior designers to tackle those hard choices by asking them: What is the interesting/unique aspect (or WOW feature) of your home? After much mulling over, they came to their own conclusions and some of their answers are as different as black or white, chocolate or vanilla and classical or country, while others picked the same selection without hesitation. Here are the spaces that this talented group thinks you will sing your praises about for days, even years, to come.

The home office with workshop is a highlight of the Manchester, according to architects Ken Bowerman and Darren Myers. The homeowner can do office work and assembly work in two adjoining spaces, which are located in close proximity to a half bathroom. Also, the secondary entrance allows for easy access for business clientele.

Eating Area Architect Mark Dierkers believes the half-court basketball court in the lower level is definitely a highlight in the Collina Bella Casa. He also includes the vaulted, arched ceiling in the den and theKitchen walk-in master shower as features not to be missed. Great Room Builder Jim Daniels agrees that the lower level isxa21’1” real 21’3” stunner with a billiards table, bar, media and cards area that overlook the half-basketball court. “The lower level Bedroom 4 will not only be an entertainer’s but will be a big 14’6” xdream, 14’ Bonus Room hit with sports fans,” says Daniels. 15’5” x 14’6” The design team of Amy Holt, Sara Berninger and Jill Foyer Holt Koch note the lower level and master bath as great features, but also include the custom gourmet kitchen Dining Room as 12’3” x 11’8” a feature you will not want to miss.

The two-sided circular fireplace in the lower level, which accents the gaming and media areas, is what interior designer Jill Neverovich finds to be one of the exciting features of the New Brunswick. She adds that another room in the home that is eye-catching is the classic kitchen. The space offers a built-in service/china hutch, complete cabinet pantry wall, illuminated accent cabinets, granite backsplash and modern appliances.

Out with the

Old, In with the

New?

With so many housing options available in this buyerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s market, here is some help in determining what is best for you By alice P. Drake Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the age-old question: Should you buy new construction or go with something that has been around for a few decades? Sentimentality might draw you towards the old colonial-style home that you grew up in, while something with a more contemporary flair that offers the trendiest bells and whistles might catch your eye. When it comes to home buying, one size definitely does not fit all. If you are in the joyous throes of parenthood, you probably are most likely leaning towards a single-family detached home, rather than a downtown condo. The big issue now is to decide whether you want a brand-new home that no one else has lived in or an existing home with some history, character and charm. Both selections have their pluses and minuses, and understanding how each home choice differs is crucial to finding the one that completes the picture for your particular lifestyle. Nowadays, many new homes are built in communities with a unified style that offer enhanced amenities, such as a clubhouse, pool, playground, tennis courts and more. These subdivisions continued >

It’s not easy being green A brief summary to understanding what it means to be “green.” What is green building? Green building is the practice of building more sustainable, healthier, and more energy efficient buildings. There is no one single way to build a green building. There are many ways for homebuilders to go green and many programs available to certify homes as being green built.

What goes into a green home? Green homes incorporate environmental considerations and resource efficiency into every step of the building and development process to minimize environmental impact. The design, construction, and operation of a home must focus on energy and water efficiency, resource efficient building design and materials, indoor environmental quality, and must take the home’s overall impact on the environment into account. However, many of the processes and technologies that go into a green home happen behind the scenes and behind the walls.

What can a home buyer look for in a green building? —Energy-efficient features —Water-efficient features —Resource-efficient features —Indoor air quality features —Third party verifications through nationally accredited programs Here are some links to nationally accredited green building programs. These third party certifications are practiced by many of our local homebuilders. Please search the individual websites to find a green builder in your area: The National Association of Home Builders (www.nahb.org) is bringing green to the mainstream with the NAHB National Green Building Program (NAHB Green) for all home builders and remodelers. The technologies and practices required to build a green home to NAHB green criteria will result in lower costs to operate the home. Explore this site to get started. Energystar™ (www.energystar.gov) is a green program run by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Products in more than 50 categories (including newly constructed homes) are eligible for the ENERGY STAR certification. They use less energy, save money, and help protect the environment. To earn the ENERGY STAR, a home must be at least 15% more energy efficient than homes built to the 2004 International Residential Code (IRC), and include additional energy-saving features that typically make them 20-30% more efficient than standard homes. The U.S. Green Building Council (www.usgbc.org) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit community of leaders working to make green buildings available to everyone within a generation. Their Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating System™ encourages and accelerates global adoption of sustainable green building and development practices.

offer anywhere from a small amount of homes on a culde-sac, to hundreds of homes from a handful of builders. These homes will have to be constructed to the latest building codes, and will most likely be both energy efficient, or “green” (see sidebar) and more expensive than older homes of a similar size.

Does newer always mean better? Do those features equal a higher price tag in your mind? Exact options and materials will vary from house to house, and builder to builder, but take the time to write down and consider these thoughts in support of buying new when making your final decision. When it comes to new homes, you get the chance at contemporary styling, such as the always popular open concept living, with some flexibility in floor plans and materials during the design and construction. Repairs and maintenance will be lower due to the newness of the appliances, materials and more, and extended warranties will be offered. The idea that no one has lived in the house before may appeal to you, as the home will truly be a blank canvas for you to make your own, while homeowners associations will make sure the properties don’t become “too” unique, i.e., lawn ornaments will stay at a minimum. You can do hours and hours of research online to check out the builder you could be working with, or meet-

5/26/11 10:18:49 AM


ing face to face might just do the trick. Regardless of your chemistry with that particular person, you should also find out about the builder’s track record through references and sources such as the Home Builders Association, the Better Business Bureau and Angie’s List. If it is possible, it will be­hoove you to walk or drive around the new subdivision to get a feel for how full or empty it really is. This will also give you a chance to ask current homeowners in that community about the builder’s quality of work and whether or not contractual obligations were met. Even though a builder can show you a model home, remember that is not what you are buying. You will be seeing the crème de la crème of features (granite countertops, theater rooms, walk-in showers), but your budget may not be able to afford such luxuries. Above all, work with a real estate agent you trust! Whether you are buying new or older construction, the real estate agent is your advocate and is working for you and your best interest.

Does older also mean character? Obviously new construction is a popular choice; we would not be having a 2011 HOMEARAMA® home show if that was not the case. However, there are massive amounts of older homes on the market, with roughly 1 out of every

569 in foreclosure. Because of this, older construction is selling at rock-bottom rates, but that does not mean that buying a house at a low price upfront will mean a lower price in the long run. There are many surprises that might crop up with that older home that has generally gone untouched. Plumbing, electric, roofing, windows and foundation problems are big ticket items that will drain your savings account faster than you can deposit your paycheck. The pros of buying an older home may include lower or negotiable prices and an established neighborhood. Because the foreclosure rate is at an all-time high, the cons may include more maintenance, less-energy efficiency, outdated interiors (wallpaper, shag carpet, Harvest Gold appliances) and general unseemliness. Of course, the option exists to have the home inspected, from foundation to roof and everything in between. What it boils down to is location, budget and your needs. Don’t waste your money on someone’s forgotten headache unless you are willing to go in with eyes, and wallet, open. Also, don’t let the shiny brilliance of new construction seduce you into becoming house poor, or a foreclosure statistic. Approach your purchase using your head, not your heart, and realize this purchase is much more than about money, it is about your lifestyle.

Why buy new?

Top 10 answers to that oft-asked question

1. When you buy a new home you get exactly what you want. You won’t have to replace old carpet, countertops or aging appliances or roofs. You select the floor plan, appliances, window treatment and flooring.

2. New homes carry better warranties. 3. Today’s new homes can be wired to take full advan-

tage of the latest communication, security, home office and entertainment technologies.

4. New homes often sell at higher resale values than older homes. 5. Builders today are subject to more stringent disclosure standards than existing home sellers. 6. New homes are safer than older homes. They have the most up-to-date wiring and electrical components and have been constructed to meet today’s stringent building codes.

7. New homes are healthier because asbestos, lead, and

other hazardous materials are no longer used in new home building.

8. New homes are more energy efficient. Newer window technology, increased efficiency in heating and cooling systems, better insulation and better control of air infiltration are just a few of the things that make new homes far superior in energy efficiency than existing homes. New homes are twice as energy efficient as homes built prior to 1980.

9. Existing and/or older homes are more expensive to

maintain and require additional maintenance and upkeep vs. a brand new home or condominium.

10. New homes offer more updated floor plans, typically

featuring more storage, larger rooms and modern features.

Nancy Niehaus Koeninger of Hoffman and Albers Interiors says that for Jack H. Wieland Builders Inc.’s Manchester, she wanted to create a soothing, inspiring interior that translates the “New Traditional” style into a look that is a little stronger, a little brighter, and more defined. “The traditional architecture takes a 21st-century approach throughout the home with surprising organic elements,” she adds. “A classic wainscot molding is updated by using a staid nail head trim and linen walls.”

THE $2,500 dESigNERS’ CHAllENgE Every HOMEARAMA® interior designer was asked to decorate one bedroom in each of their respective homes for under $2,500. Seem impossible? Well, for these creative professionals, a little challenge never hurt anyone, and their design savvy and knowledge came in handy. At every home, you will find a handout directing you to the challenge room and what materials were used to achieve this lofty goal, so you can recreate the same effect in your own home. 2011 homeArAmA®

Jill Neverovich describes the feel of Zaring Premier Homes’ New Brunswick as casual elegance, redefined. This merges traditional architectural features with modern design influences in furnishings and accents. “The style showcases the use of modern elements in a more traditional home and how harmonious the two styles can be,” she says.

Jenny Lynn Wynne of Thomasville Home Furnishings and Design Destination says that the inspiration for the Augusta by Justin Doyle Homes started with the homeowners. “The homeowners have lived and traveled extensively throughout Europe. Their dream home is an accumulation of their love for chateaus and castles. While having a strong admiration for old world architecture, they still wanted to incorporate American amenities and products. They have fused together global accents with American traditions.”

Whether you are freshening up your décor for the summer or staging your house for a quick sale, there are a couple of ways to give your space that extra “oomph” without breaking the bank. New window treatments add charm, faux painting or wallpaper add dimension, and window boxes and artwork add bursts of color to any home. here is some important information you will need to get started.

Window treatments Are you bored with the same old window treatments? Bright colors, funky patterns and organic materials offer exciting new ideas and options for the adventuresome spirit. Changing the window treatment in any room can instantly update the space and change the point of view. Remember to measure your windows and jot down that information before heading off to your local shop, so that you will have a perfect fit without wasting your time or money. To get you started, here is a short list of the types of window treatments available. 1. Cornices: A board usually covered with batting and fabric that sits on top of a window. 2. Lambrequins: A cornice with extensions that come down the side of the window. 3. Swags, cascades and jabots: A swag is a piece of fabric draped over a pole that runs across the top of the window.

Window boxes It is common practice to place window boxes under windows on homes, but they can be installed other places such as fences, railings and balconies. The key to hanging window boxes is to find the right box. The container should reflect the architectural style of the space while providing adequate function. Wooden window boxes make a great accent to country cottages while aging gracefully. From terra-cotta window boxes with intricate detailing, to woven baskets lined with moss, there is a window box suited for every home. Along with a variety of styles, window boxes come in an array of sizes. Window boxes tend to bring more balance to a space when they are slightly larger than the window.

Cascades and jabots are the legs that go down the side of the window and are always attached to the swag. 4. Valances: Fabric treatments similar to a cornice that cover up the top of a window. 5. Draperies and curtains: Draperies are pleated panels that are hung from a traverse rod or a decorative pole and rings. Curtains are generally stationary, although they can be adjusted with tiebacks. 6. Roman, balloon or cloud shades: These shades raise and lower by a system of rigged cords or a spring-loaded roller. They are attached to a covered mounting board that is attached either inside or outside the window trim.

Looking to change the mood of a room? You can pump up the volume with color, pattern and texture by choosing the right wall treatment for any room in your house. A bold paint color can brighten up a dull room, while a softer hue can add subtle warmth. The days of boring paisley and bad patterns are gone when it comes to wallpaper. Through more modern prints, wallpaper is a great option to keep a room current. Faux finish painting is one of the hottest trends in home décor in recent years. A faux finish can do so much for a space, such as create texture and depth, add a splash of color or elegance to an otherwise boring room, or simply create a mood. A few examples of faux finish choices are Leather, Marble, Suede, Clouds, Denim, Parchment, Silk, Linen and Brick. You can achieve the look of continued >

Artwork is also a diverse option that allows you to spend a couple, hundreds, or even millions of dollars on a piece that will give your walls a focal point. It is much easier to move a painting from wall to wall or room to room than it is to change the wall treatment when the mood strikes.

The Home Builders Asso­ ciations of Northern Kentucky and Greater Cincinnati are partnering to produce this scattered site show featuring remodeled homes in the TriState. The show will once again provide the public the opportu­ nity to see the talents of many different registered remodel­ ers. The Tour of Remodeled Homes provides participating remodelers the opportunity to showcase their ability to improve a home through a simple beautification project on up to the complete renova­ tion of an entire house. The Tour is perfect for any homeowner—from those wanting to just add dimension and square footage to a room, to those looking for a little added cabinet space, to the person planning the gourmet kitchen of their dreams. The public can see many products first hand, enjoy the colors and textures of the interiors, and visualize their own remod­ eled home. This show is the place to discover exciting new trends in home design, decora­ tion, and construction. For more information, call 513-851-6300 or 859-331-9500 or visit www.hbanky.com.
