Whether your first impression of homebuilder Jeff Click comes from a Bricktown billboard, a click on his website or a stroll through one of his standout home designs, you know you’ve seen something different. Look a little deeper, though, and you’ll see it’s because this guy is coming from a whole different place. Click is known for contemporary interior designs, distinct exterior lines and his commitment to building homes that even critics must call exceptional. But behind it all is a man dedicated to understanding who he is and allowing that understanding to inform every dimension of his role as a builder. It started with his first home design 12 years ago. Whereas some builders “name their plans for whatever,” Click said, “I was looking for something with meaning to me, something not arbitrary.” It was his first home, the beginning step. He named it “Genesis.” He said he decided early on that “how I build and market homes would be influenced by my faith” — and not just during Christmas season. From Genesis he added new plans, also naming them for books of the Bible: Luke, Romans, Chronicle, Psalm and Daniel, to name a few. It just felt right. “This is who I am. It’s how I was raised,” he

said. Today, Click is using about 20 biblical names for his layouts. Some, including Genesis, have been retired, Click said, but others come online to take their place. In the case of Jeff Click Homes’ latest offering — the “Urbana” series — the plans’ names have been chosen from more subtle biblical references. Plans in the Urbana line, which has smaller footprints with an emphasis on energy efficiency and more moderate price points, have Greek, Hebrew and Latin names that resonate deeply with Click, a graduate of Oklahoma Baptist University and an active member of Lifechurch.tv. Neuma (from Greek “pneuma” for spirit or breath) is a 1,465-square-foot plan that sells in the mid-$150,000s. Cielo (“heaven” or “skies,” Latinate), at 1,579 square feet, starts just under $160,000. Shalom (Hebrew for “peace”) spans 1,670 square feet and starts just under $170,000. Kyrie (Greek, from “Kyrie eleison,” that is, “God with us” or “God have mercy on us”) is a 1,598-square-foot design that starts at $159,876. Trinity (from the Latin “trinitas” for the concept that God exists as three persons in one divine being), at 1,643 square feet, starts in the low-$180,000s. Click, who was a telecommunications ma-

Choose carefully if opting for a townhouse A couple in their mid-20s found the perfect starter home for their lifestyle. The place they picked wasn’t the classic detached house with a large yard. Rather, it was a brand-new townhouse with 10-foot ceilings and loaded with amenities. “Like lots of homebuyers in their 20s, they were drawn to the tennis courts, big pool and party house this community offered,” said Tom Early, the real estate broker who represented the couple in their recent purchase. But several decades’ worth of experience has Early predicting that after this young couple has their first baby, they’ll want to buy a house with more space to stretch out. “A townhouse is often the perfect choice for people from their mid-20s to

early 30s who don’t yet have kids and aren’t yet focused on a neighborhood with a playground,” said Early, former president of the National Association of Exclusive Buyer Agents. Though choosing a townhouse means losing out on some of the benefits that come from a detached home, like a large yard for gardening, you’ll be compensated in other ways. You’ll likely have a landscaped common area that others keep up. Plus, you’ll probably be free of exterior maintenance for your own

postage-sized grounds. Selecting a townhouse also means you’ll get more square feet of living space for the money. Indeed, Early estimates that a typical townhouse costs 25 to 30 percent less per square foot than does a detached house with a yard. Here are a few tips for those interested in buying a townhouse: Don’t sacrifice a good location when you buy. It can be tiring to hear that location should beat all other factors when it comes to the selection of real estate. But this principle remains true, said Eric Tyson, a personal finance expert and co-author of “Home Buying for Dummies.” Tyson urges you to look for a neighborhood served by high-quality public schools, even if you have

no plans for children. Also, he encourages you to seek a community with easy access to such popular amenities as movie theaters and fine dining. In addition, look for an area near well-rated public transportation. Seek out a townhouse with an expansive interior. These days, most homebuyers strongly favor an open, airy, bright house. But many townhouses, especially older ones, have relatively few windows and are narrow from side to side and deep from the front door to the back, Early said. “To get a more open feeling, try to find a townhouse that’s wider than average. Also, look for one where the rooms are square rather than rectangular and one with largerthan-average windows.

Noted interior designer Bunny Williams believes a home should be for living in, not just looking at. In her new book, “Bunny Williams’ Scrapbook for Living,” she shares her ideas for making a home not just beautiful, but welcoming, comfortable and functional. Williams takes readers room by room through a typical house and offers tips and suggestions for each space. The tips are quick to read and are accompanied by photos by Amy Archer to illustrate the points. “Bunny Williams’ Scrapbook for Living” is published by Stewart, Tabori & Chang and sells for $60 in hardcover.

However, remember that big windows typically translate to higher energy costs,” he said. Avoid a townhouse community where residents don’t seem to get along. Those bound together in a well-run townhouse community’s residents’ association set aside money for major expenses, like the replacement of a roof or renovation of a pool house. Otherwise, everyone living in the community could be hit with a special assessment, which can mean a large addition to your monthly condo fee. “The last thing you want is to live in a community where everyone is squabbling over minor issues or large ones,” he said.

Faith: Concepts rooted in Scripture FROM PAGE 1F

jor, said he began to discover his acumen as a designer and project manager in college, where he founded a software company as an undergraduate. Outsourcing much of the coding and development work, Click focused on the design of the interface, marketing and product packaging. That same visual sense — the one he feeds today by devouring “tons of design magazines and blogs,” where he gleans ideas to solve problems and introduce variety into the homes he builds — was sparked at an early age. A baseball fanatic as a child, Click found himself confined indoors between games to minimize his exposure to sweltering Oklahoma summer afternoons. “I started doing crafts and painting” to fill those hours, Click recalled. Today the mitt is retired, but the crafting and painting have famously bloomed. Click’s faith has led him not only to select Scripture-rooted names for his homes, but it has given him the courage to strike out in a design direction that is at times counter to the Oklahoma City mainstream. Like one of his business heroes, Apple CEO Steve Jobs, who Click said “never focus-groups anything,” Click, too, has built his reputation on the faith that “people don’t know what they want till they see it.” “When buyers find me,” Click said, and they bond, as they often do, over the biblical name of a design, “I feel that’s God working in my life, and I want to acknowledge that however I can.”

Floor plans have divine references Since 1998 Jeff Click has been naming his home designs for biblical references: books of the Bible, characters or concepts, and sometimes even specific verses. His company, Jeff Click Homes, offers floor plans with these biblical names:

Five laser measurers go the distance in test I hate to admit that I’ve been around construction since old-growth trees were just trees, and during all that time I’ve been using a conventional tape measure. I tried a firstgeneration laser distance measurer several years back, and found it far too inconsistent and inaccurate to be of much use. So when I undertook a recent review and comparison of five different laser distance measurers, it was with a bit of intimidation for the long learning curve and low hopes for the results. I was wrong on both counts. All of the laser distance measurers tested (someone could come up with a less cumbersome name) were given the same basic tests, and were compared against the same conventional tape measure. Each one was perfectly accurate, and they all gave exactly the same readings. All five had pretty similar basic features. Besides the obvious ability to measure, each one has the ability to store, add to, and subtract from the measurements you’re taking. Each one also has the ability to do mathematical calculations for you as you go. In one mode you can measure the length and then the width of an area, and the unit will give you the square footage. In another mode, you can also measure the height and it will calculate cubic footage. Another function is the ability to calculate measurements of areas

Paul Bianchina HANDY @ HOME you can’t see directly, such as the height of a tall building. All the units except the Dewalt had this feature. A backlit screen for lowlight situations is another common feature, and all of the units except the Bosch included that. All included a protective belt holster, of which the Craftsman and the Dewalt seemed the easiest to use. Dewalt and Bosch also include a handy wrist lanyard. Dewalt and Craftsman get kudos for the non-blister-pack packaging, and Ryobi gets a demerit for their instructions that come on one huge sheet of paper like a foldout road map. From there, it’s a matter of accuracy and a couple of other important features, which you can see in the individual reviews. They’re listed below in order of retail price. At the end of the day, my tape measure still has a home. But given the speed, features and consistent accuracy of these tools, it’s definitely time to make room in the toolbox for a laser as well.

Pat Boone buys vacation home on ocean liner BY LAUREN BEALE Los Angeles Times

Entertainer Pat Boone has purchased a vacation home on the residential ocean liner the Utopia. Expected to launch in 2013, the ship will journey around the globe and stop at events such as the Cannes Film Festival in France, the Formula 1 Monaco Grand Prix and the Melbourne Cup horse race in Australia. “Everyone in my family is thrilled about having future family reunions on the Utopia and traveling the world without leaving our home on the sea,” said Boone, a Beverly Hills resident. The 199 residences range from 1,453 to 6,100 square feet and are priced from $3.9 million to $25 million. The listing price for a unit similar to the one Boone purchased is $4 million. The exact purchase price was not disclosed. Buyers own a 70-year right to use the residence, much like a land lease. Fees are about 4.5 percent of purchase price annually. Boone’s 1,453-square-foot unit can be configured as a one-bedroom with a study/media /guest room or as a two-bedroom home with a third room for a library or office. It has a living room and a terrace with an ocean view. The unit is fully furnished, including multimedia equipment, flatware and linens. Boone, 76, enjoyed his heyday as a pop singer in the ’50s and ’60s and had his own variety show. Among his hit songs were “Love Letters in the Sand,” “April Love” and “Moody River.” His leading man work included “Journey to the Center of the Earth” (1959) and “State Fair” (1962). He was inducted into the Gospel Music Hall of Fame in 2003. MCCLATCHY-TRIBUNE INFORMATION SERVICES

cludes a multifunction digital level that I didn’t review. The laser measuring tool itself is the largest of the five, and the only one to place some of the operating buttons on the front and some on the side. It has a mode button that allows you to choose to measure from the bottom of the unit or from the top. Measures up to 150 feet, with an accuracy of 3/16 inch. Operates on two AA batteries. Dewalt Laser Distance Measurer (Model DW030P, $129.99): This is probably the most rugged of the group, with a tough but comfortable casing rated for a 6foot drop. It also has a large and easy-to-use belt loop case. The buttons are large and well grouped. Unfortunately it only reads from the bottom of the unit and it doesn’t have an extension rod like the next three units do, which limits its usefulness to some degree. Measures up to 100 feet, with an accuracy of 1/8 inch. Operates on two AAA batteries. Ryobi Tek4 Professional Laser Distance Measure (Model #RP4010, $149): Part of Ryobi’s Tek4 group of tools that use a small 4-volt rechargeable lithium ion battery. It’s a very well-designed tool with a lot of features for the professional and home user alike. There’s a tab at the bottom that flips down 90 degrees to hook over a counter or table edge for accurate reference point measuring. The tab then

flips straight out so the unit fits into a tight corner when measuring diagonals. A mode button tells the unit to measure from the top, the bottom, or the tip of the extended tab. The Tek 4 will measure distances up to 195 feet with an accuracy of 1/16 of an inch and offers about 2,000 measurements per charge. Includes the battery and charger. Bosch Laser Distance Measurer (Model GLR225, $158): Bosch’s unit had the smallest profile, and is still packed with features, including seven different measuring modes. It was also the only one with a universal female screw fitting on the bottom so you can attach it to a tripod. It has a retractable extension pin at the bottom instead of a tab, for placing the unit into tight corners. The Bosch has four different measuring reference point choices: measuring from the bottom, the top, the end of the extension pin, and the center point, where the tripod socket mount is located. This unit operates on four AAA batteries, with a life of approximately 30,000 individual measurements. Measures up to 230 feet, with an accuracy of 1/16 of an inch. Milwaukee Laser Distance Meter (Model 2280-20, $179): Compact, solid and easy to use, the Milwaukee has all the features you’re likely to need, especially for the professional user. It has a flip-down tab for

hooking over edges, and it flips down again for fitting into corners. The measuring reference mode allows selection of bottom, top and end-tab measuring points. The case has rugged rubber over-molding for extra protection. The Milwaukee is also light and easy to handle, and offers all the necessary measuring modes, including area, volume, indirect measure-

ments, and more. The Milwaukee laser measurer operates off two AAA batteries, with a life of about 5,000 measurements. The range for this unit is 200 feet, with an accuracy of 1/ 16 of an inch.

Credit score alert on way for loan seekers WASHINGTON — Home mortgage shoppers should see an unexpected addition to the application paper blitz starting Jan. 1: a mandatory alert on how their credit scores might affect the rate quote and terms they receive from their lender. The new disclosure represents the end product of a congressional effort dating to 2003 to make the crucial role played by credit scores in loan pricing more intelligible to consumers, and to alert applicants when information in their credit bureau files triggers higher rates or adverse terms. Lenders will be required to provide the alert before applicants commit to accept mortgage offers, thereby allowing some consumers to double-think their decisions, order copies of credit reports and look for inaccuracies or outdated information. Though federal regulators have given banks several ways to make the mandatory disclosure, the one most mortgage applicants are likely to see includes: The specific credit score, including the source and the date it was pulled, that was used by the lender to arrive at a decision on the rate quote. How the applicant’s score ranks against other consumers’ scores. The key negative credit-file factors that affected the applicant’s score, such as the number of late payments, inquiries by the consumer seeking new credit accounts, and excessive use of the credit accounts already available to the consumer. A reminder that applicants have the legal right to dispute any inaccuracies in their credit files. Contact information for obtaining free annual credit reports — one each from Equifax, Experian and TransUnion, the three national bureaus. A description of credit-scoring methodology. Ted Dreyer, a senior attorney with Wolters Kluwer Financial Services, an adviser to lenders based in Minneapolis, said the new forms “will certainly (be) another piece of paper” and that “some people’s

eyes will glaze over.” But properly used, he said, they “will be a valuable source of information” for people with negative data, whether accurate or erroneous, buried in their national credit bureau files. Consumers should be especially alert to the connection between credit files and mortgage rate quotes, according to proponents of the new disclosure, because the hard economic jolts of the past four years — unemployment, high delinquency rates, home foreclosures and short sales — have depressed the credit scores of millions of people. At the same time, most mortgage lenders have steadily ratcheted up their underwriting standards and credit score requirements for good rates — or even the minimum score needed to qualify for any quote at all. Not everyone is as opti-

mistic as Dreyer. Consumer advocates who successfully pressed for the disclosure in 2003 say the final form taking effect Jan. 1 doesn’t come close to what was intended: a personalized red flag from the lender to the applicant that negative credit-file data had caused the rate quote to be significantly higher than it otherwise would have been. The concept was to encourage a borrower who received the warning to consider putting the brakes on the deal until he or she had a chance to check out what exactly in the files was causing the problem. Only applicants who were being quoted disadvantageous, higher rates by the lender’s risk-based pricing system using credit scores would receive the notice, rather than 100 percent of all applicants. Ed Mierzwinski, consumer program director of the U.S. Public Interest Research Group, said next year’s form amounts to “just another disappointing generic disclosure” whose effectiveness will be limited by the fact it’s a handout to everybody. Mierzwinski is especially

critical of the two federal agencies responsible for crafting the final product: the Federal Reserve and the Federal Trade Commission. Both, he said, “choked the life out of this promising consumer reform” during a protracted seven-year deliberation process. Terry W. Clemans, executive director of the National Credit Reporting Association, whose members

specialize in preparing credit data and scores for mortgage lenders, said the final disclosure form “seems to be a very watered-down version of the intent of Congress back in 2003.” But Evan Hendricks, author of the “Credit Scores and Credit Reports” and editor of Privacy Times, a newsletter that focuses on consumer credit issues,

said he prefers to look for the positive in the new disclosures. Though “it’s a step — a baby step — in the right direction,” he said in an interview, “anything that reminds people about their credit score and how their lender is using it will be better than nothing.” E-mail Kenneth Harney at kenharney@earthlink.net.

Check fixtures before converting fireplace DEAR BARRY: We have a gas log fireplace in our home and would like to have real wood fires. Would it be safe to remove the gas logs and burn real logs instead? Dave DEAR DAVE: Before making changes to your fireplace, you should determine the type of fixture that you have, as well as its internal condition. If it was originally built as a wood-burning fireplace and then converted to a gas log setup, it might be possible to return to solid-fuel use. This would depend on the extent of the conversion and the reason the conversion was made. For example, if the firebox or the damper assembly was altered, woodburning use may no longer be safe. If a metal flue liner was installed, the liner may not be suited for the high temperatures produced by solid fuel combustion. If the conversion was made because the firebox or the chimney was damaged, a return to wood combustion may not be possible without making costly repairs.

Barry Stone INSPECTOR’S IN THE HOUSE

It is also possible that the fixture was never intended for solid fuel. It may have been specifically manufactured as a gasburning appliance. If so, it should not be used with any fuel other than gas, no exceptions. Altering the intended use of a gas fireplace could damage the unit and cause a fire in your home. Before making any changes in the way your fireplace is used, have it thoroughly inspected by a certified chimney sweep to ensure that all such changes are safe and in full compliance with applicable requirements. Otherwise, your home itself could become a “fire-place.” DEAR BARRY: Five days after buying our home, the sewer backed up and ruined the new carpet and the drywall in our

The sellers’ Realtor now says that she knew there had been some plumbing problems and had advised the sellers to disclose it. What are our legal options? Leslie DEAR LESLIE: The Realtor for the sellers should have done more than advise the sellers to disclose. She should have made sure that the sellers’ disclosure statement contained that information. Furthermore, she should have included that information on her own disclosure form. Failure to do so was a significant breach of her responsibility as a professional Realtor. As for legal options, the answer varies from one state to another. You should consult an attorney for the answer to that question. To write to Barry Stone, go to www.housedetective.com.

Craftsman style reborn in neighborhood ARCHITECTURE | ORLANDO, FLA., COUPLE BUILD NEW HOME IN HISTORIC DISTRICT AFTER ORIGINAL HOME COULDN’T BE REMODELED BY JEAN PATTESON The Orlando Sentinel

ORLANDO, Fla. — The Craftsman-style home of Tom and Vivian Ward looks so authentic that passers-by assume it is a remodeled version of a house dating back to the early 20th century. Although the home sits in Orlando’s Lake Lawsona Historic District, where many of the homes do date from the Craftsman period (1905-1930), the Wards’ home is brand new. Only the distinctive newhome smell gives it away. Originally, the couple planned to remodel the old house that sat on the lot, six blocks east of downtown’s Lake Eola. Once they discovered it was too decrepit to be saved, they drew up plans for a replacement. “To blend with this neighborhood, we could have gone Mediterranean or Bungalow, but we had fallen in love with the Craftsman style,” Vivian Ward said. “It is so warm, inviting and comfortable. We’re very low-key and laid-back. It’s a perfect fit.” Working with architect David Runnels and builder Carlos Posada, both of Winter Park, Fla., they designed their dream retirement home — cozy enough for two, but able to accommodate visits from their extended family. It includes two large guest suites, a master suite, a wood-paneled study and a spacious, open upstairs. The large kitchen opens to a dining room with coffered ceiling and a family room with fireplace. Beyond is a tree-shaded back porch with summer kitchen. In trendy terms, it is a “multigenerational, aging-in-place home.” Because of its location in one of the city’s oldest neighborhoods, the style and scale of the home, as well as details such as
