PRESIDENT’S NOTE

Welcome to the 2016 Parade of Homes™

W

elcome to the 2016 Parade of Homes™! We are so pleased to be able to bring you our 61st annual event, and we hope to exceed all expectations.

walk, jog, bike and bird-watch in a Hill Country setting that is truly spectacular. A fun Treehouse Park, dramatic overlook trails, and community garden will keep residents connected to the land.

The annual Parade of Homes™ is the premier place to stroll through the halls of some of the finest custom homes, built by leading custom home builders from the Greater Austin region. Visitors are invited to explore each home and discover the variety of fantastic features, technology, trends and styles infused into each home. We are confident you will be inspired to apply some of what you find in your own home building and remodeling projects.

With your visit to Caliterra for the Parade of Homes™ or as a potential resident, located just minutes from downtown Dripping Springs, we know you will fall in love with the small-town charm. Approximately 20 miles from the vibrant city of Austin, Caliterra offers a great escape from the city into Texas Hill Country life. So when you attend the Parade of Homes™, you won’t want to miss out on exploring the entire development.

Four awe-inspiring, expansive luxury homes are on display here in the Caliterra development in Dripping Springs, an oasis in the Texas Hill Country nestled along the natural beauty of Onion Creek.

We hope you enjoy your visit to the 2016 Parade of Homes™ and recognize all the hard work, attention to detail and overall passion that are an integral part of these beautiful homes.

This year’s Parade features high-quality HBA member luxury builders such as Arbogast Custom Homes, Lake Travis Builders, Sterling Custom Homes and Sommerfeld Construction. These homes are situated in the Wildwood gated neighborhood within beautiful Caliterra—a gorgeous, master-planned community set along the rambling Onion Creek, a great place to fish, picnic, or just relax. Almost half of this amazing new home community will be filled with parks, trails and green spaces that will not be developed. Residents will be able to stretch their legs,

Sincerely,

Designing Central Texas AUSTIN METRO AREA CARVES OUT UNIQUE & TIMELESS STYLE By Riki Markowitz

O

ver the past several years the country has been taken with all types of interior design television shows, reality competitions, and some truly amazing websites, too. Judging by these criteria, you might assume that everyone is on the same page when it comes to decorating trends, right? Well, not so fast. It turns out that many metro areas have a pretty unique look. Here in Central Texas, for instance – from Round Rock in the north to Dripping Springs down south and communities from east to west, too – there’s a specific design element that experts refer to as Texas Hill Country, or Hill Country Design. The look is calm, the color palette is unobtrusive, the style is traditional. Trends tend to develop as a result of a region’s unique landscape and dominant natural features. Everything from popular color combinations to in-demand materials used in and outside the home develops from a connection to the area’s geography – like mountains or the sea. Seasons also play a large role in home design. Depending on whether there are two main seasons like we have here in Central Texas, or four seasons, like

10

in New England, can determine, for example, what type of floors people choose. “There’s been a big transition away from super high gloss, shiny dark hardwood floors, toward more of a matte or oil finish,” says Chelsea Kloss, owner of Chelsea + Remy.

DESIGN So not only does Texas Hill Country have a distinctive design aesthetic, but you will see that this look was born from several elements. Homes in Austin are dressed to draw attention to the rocky and jagged landscape surrounding the city, and a distinctive color palette grew out of a desire to live in harmony with a nearly yearlong blazing sun. Finally, even the way we design and allocate social spaces in our homes is linked directly to Texans’ traditional southwestern friendliness and charm. Hill Country Design is a trend that might be copied, but can’t be replicated.

COLORS My clients ask for colors that aren’t colors. They’re chameleon colors. It could look green in some light, gray in another light,” says Chris Browarski,

2016 Parade of Homes™ October 28 ~ November 13 • ParadeofHomesAustin.com

owner of CCB Designs. “These noncolors are more popular than blues, reds, and browns.” Kloss says this palette can be described as “hugging the fence.” Things aren’t just silver or gold anymore; now it’s pewter, champagne, or rose gold. “Sometimes they look one way in the morning light and a completely different color later in the day,” says Kloss. It’s almost as if Central Texans have decided that the ordinary colors that you find in homes across the country are too typical. Raquel Skrobarczyk, the lead interior designer at Heather Scott Home + Design, says that the reason she rarely uses deep, saturated colors is because of the boiling Central Texas climate. “It’s so hot here. Having a cool color scheme makes you feel cooler.”

ACCENTS In recent years, Central Texans have also decided that a single type of finish – for everything from knobs to door pulls and light fixtures – is boring. “Everything’s got a little twist of a different color to make it more unique – it’s rare that everything matches,” says Browarski, even in the same room.


The design style embraced here is industrial crossed with modern, says Kloss. She believes this comes from something deeper in our DNA. “I’m a Texas girl born and raised and I’m proud of my state, but that doesn’t mean I want to run around in cowgirl boots and ride my horse everyday,” she explains. “The industrial/modern movement allows us to reconnect with our rustic side without a ‘yippee-kaiyay,’ ranch-hand style design.”

selves a favor because they’re creating an environment that’s more self-sustainable,” say Kloss, an awardwinning designer whose work has been featured in the Home Builders Association’s Parade of Homes in 2012 and 2015. One thing all of the designers we interviewed have indepenRaquel Skrobarczyk, Lead Interior Designer, Heather Scott Home & Design dently suggested is that Central Photo Credit: Ryann Ford Photography Texans are concerned first and Houzz and Apartment Therapy, is foremost with living in a classic, timealso very well known in the local less, but not-too-trendy home.

At heart, people here are versatile, cheerful, and friendly. Why Browarski, whose dressing in an wouldn’t we want our homes to reflect East Austin Farmhouse was featured that? on popular home design websites

All the designers we spoke with said that reclaimed industrial elements and barn wood are really popular in this region. Today, it wouldn’t be unusual to see barn doors or reclaimed barn wood accents in a modern home. “It’s one way people feel comfortable about embracing an aspect of rustic design,” says Kloss.

GREEN DESIGN Designing your home in a way that is environmentally friendly and preserves energy is a concept that emerged several years ago. But not everyone is necessarily interested in spending extra money at the outset just to increase water usage efficiency or improve interior air quality. At the same time, Central Texans are embracing certain design elements that just happen to improve energy efficiency, like using lighter colors and reducing the number of light fixtures – and light bulbs – around the home. This is especially true over the past decade when cost of real estate started increasing with no end in site. Today, buyers are getting less space for more money and are looking for ways to reign in costs without compromising comfort and appearances.

The whitewashed look is popular in the kitchen, where designers recommend lighter and brighter surfaces, including countertops, cabinets, and walls. Because light from the sun bounces off of white surfaces better, there’s not as much need for additional light fixtures. “Even if people aren’t thinking they’re making green decisions when selecting those types of finishes, they’re doing them-

nspiration for this one-of-a-kind Santa Barbara style

barrel ceilings compliment the modest clean lines and soft

home comes from a variety of sources: the adobe and

tones of the house. In line with Benjamin Moore’s 2016

colonial buildings of Monterey California; late forms of

color of the year “Simply White”, the exterior stucco façade

Moorish architecture; medieval Spanish and Italian church

radiates with a warm white tone offset with the red tile roof

architecture; Ultra-Baroque design of colonial Spain and Portugal; and Italian Romanesque and Renaissance revival elements. The Santa Barbara style is distinctly Mediterranean, and the spirit of Santa Barbara is epitomized in its Spanish Revival architecture. Spanish Colonial Revival is a catalog of styles, unified by the use of arches, courtyards, form and mass, tile roofs, all derived from the Mediterranean world. The purity of the Santa Barbara style flows seamlessly into the home’s interior finish detail. Finishes are simple yet re-

and the ebony bronze windows to create the perfect exterior finish contrast. The heart of the home is the open and inviting great room. The plan includes a distinctive chef’s kitchen featuring professional grade appliances and a stained wood vent hood. The master retreat provides a master bath that rivals the finest spas which includes a free standing tub with exposed brushed brass hardware. Additional unique features include an oversized utility room with a hand crafted barn

fined. Natural light floods every corridor of the house ac-

sliding door system, and LED lighting throughout. The

centuating unique features such as the use of weathered and

house also incorporates state-of-the-art audio, video, light-

aged wood beams. Tall ceilings create a sense of grandeur

ing, shade, communications, and control equipment allow-

and mass. Extensive use of arches, domes, groin vaults, and

ing for cutting edge seamless home automation.

Remodel

VS

New Home

PROS & CONS By Riki Markowitz

T

ouring a slate of brand new homes is enough to get your pulse racing, especially at a time when you’re contemplating either moving or remodeling. It’s been a longtime trend in home construction to push the envelope and feature the newest technologies and upgrades in the home building industry, especially at annual events like Parade of Homes. It’s a great place to get ideas for remodeling your existing home, or, if your family is ready to upgrade, take the plunge and move into one of these beautifully designed houses. Determining whether to buy a new home or remodel your existing home is not an easy decision, though. “There’s just no single right answer for everyone,” says Bill McHugh, owner at Tier1 Group and a Master Certified Green Professional (CGP). “The best thing I can do is take off my sales cap and focus on how can I help people.” Determining the right decision for you takes some homework.

32

Here are some of the pros and cons you can consider:

CITY SLICKER OR SUBURBANITE? Buying a newly built home often means a move to the suburbs, which offers a number of benefits. Take this year’s Parade of Homes in Dripping Springs at Caliterra, for example. This master-planned community is located on Onion Creek. Nearly half of the community is reserved for undeveloped land and open green space, like parks and trails. It’s close to a private marina, wineries, and a country club. Dripping Springs ISD is a top ranked school in Texas. In fact, a lot of the new builds around Austin are in areas just like Dripping Springs, including Round Rock, Leander, Cedar Park, and Buda, to name a few. New Home Pros: Moving to any one of these fast-growing communities is a great decision if you like nice views, good schools, plus the savings

2016 Parade of Homes™ October 28 ~ November 13 • ParadeofHomesAustin.com

you will see on your taxes and getting more home for your money. Like Dripping Springs, many areas where new homes are going up are also getting similar master-plan community treatment, with nearby mixed-use shopping plazas, new health facilities, and in some cases, new schools, too. These neighborhoods may be on Austin’s doorstep, but thanks to increasing city traffic and the ongoing population explosion, there’s a pressing incentive to make these communities completely self sustaining. Remodel Pros: If the city still plays an important role in your work and social life, suddenly finding yourself commuting several dozen miles per day from your new home in Round Rock could be infuriating. Jeremy Martin, of Richer & Martin, and a 2015 Custom Builder of the Year, says that while today’s new homes are larger and have lot of modern amenities compared to older houses, not everyone needs so much extra space or even wants modern upgrades offered with new houses.


There are lots of people living outside of Austin-proper who opt to remodel rather than buy new. If you have substantial equity in your home, you can leverage that to help pay for upgrades. Remodeling is also a good option for those who are not particularly interested in buying a new home but are ready for an upgrade in a few rooms or even housewide.

at Spring Builders in Austin, when someone is stuck on whether to buy a new home or remodel their existing home, he or she should ask, “How adaptable is my home for my family’s future needs?” By choosing to remodel, you can provide your senior parents with space and safety features that best suits their increasing needs, for example. An older house can be altered so that a family – no matter how conventional or not – can live in a way that’s convenient and comfortable for everyone.

DO YOU LIKE MODERN UPGRADES?

Remodel Cons: Depending on the amount of space you’re working with and your existing home’s layout, a remodeling job like this can be costly.

Homes debuting in 2016 are more energy efficient than ever and have more Wi-Fi programmable safety features inside and outside the home.

New Home Pros: Today’s new homes are typically larger. So there’s leeway for redesigning if you need an extra suite or a second full-kitchen for an adult child or in-law. Private entrances and specialized bathrooms, for example, may not be standard features for a new home, but you can pay for these upgrades.

New Home Pros: You will get a slew of design and engineering improvements in a new house. You’ll see instant savings on your energy bills and will feel safer with improved security features. The bottom line is that if you’re one of those people who must have the newest gadgets as soon as they hit shelves, then you’re also going to love moving into a new home brimming with all the newest upgrades. When buying a new home, you should always ask your builder about discounts on upgrades.

IS CONVENIENCE IMPORTANT TO YOU? Buying a new home and remodeling both have their own unique advantages and disadvantages when it comes to convenience. Are you frustrated by hours of paperwork? Do you mind packing up all of your belongings and moving them to a new house? How would you cope with a construction crew in your home for several months?

Remodel Pros: A new house may be brimming with all the bells and whistles, but if you just want a few well-designed tweaks and alterations, there’s no need to schedule a mover for that.

DO YOU HAVE A MULTIGENERATIONAL HOUSEHOLD?

New Home Pros: To purchase a new home, you apply for financing and receive approval. Filling out and organizing the paperwork can be confusing and time consuming, but in the end, the entire process takes a few hours of your time (over the course of several weeks).

Pew released a study that reveals new ways Americans are living. For the first time in more than a century, grown adult children are more likely to remain living with their parents than moving in with a spouse or partner. AARP reported a nearly 14 percent increase in seniors living with their adult children.

Remodel Cons: Remodeling even just one room in your house can take weeks. Strangers will be in and out and it can take several more months before your privacy and stability are restored. “It’s important to make sure clients are honest with themselves

Remodel Pros: According to Alex Pettitt, a Graduate Master Builder

when it comes to remodeling. It can be invasive, disruptive, and put stress on relationships,” says McHugh,

YOU HAVE A BUDGET Very few new homebuyers or remodelers have an unlimited budget. However, it’s spectacularly easy, and tempting, to over-spend. New Home Pros: You can actually get a tremendous value by purchasing a Parade home. According to Pettitt, “because of the publicity, a lot of suppliers and vendors are willing to give discounts on their products and upgrades.” Also, many builders offer deals on inventory homes or upgrade incentives on those that are preconstruction. Your dollar can go a lot further than you may think. Remodel Pros: When you choose to remodel your home, you may not come across a lot of discounts, but you also won’t find yourself in a “supermarket checkout line” scenario like you can when buying a new home. Meaning, you won’t be inundated by vendors offering to add a little of this and a little of that. Instead, you get and pay for exactly what you need. Remodel Cons: Of course, lots of folks who choose to remodel do go over budget. If you’re an impulse buyer in your day-to-day life, you have the potential to be swayed to purchase higher quality woods or tiles and other modern upgrades.

HOW TO MAKE A MOVE OR REMODEL WORK BEST FOR YOU The amount of paperwork involved in buying a new house can be overwhelming, but with the right team behind you – including your broker, mortgage and title agents -- the process can run like a well-oiled machine. If you decide to remodel, the right contractor will make sure the job runs smoothly, too. Getting referrals and

If you’re still unsure about whether to buy a new house or to remodel, it’s a perfectly normal concern. All of the experts we spoke with say they sometimes feel like a family counselor because it’s part of their job to discuss clients’ most personal lifestyle preferences, from how cool you like the bedroom to how often you have company over. “We need to a have a lot of conversations to figure out what you want,” says Pettitt. Some people describe moving and remodeling as traumatizing and personally destabilizing. “But at the end of the day,” says Pettitt, “no matter which way you go, you still feel like you’re in a new home.”

The “Vital Communities” concept is meeting the demands of active homebuyers For thousands of homebuyers, total wellness has become a way of life. That is why Freehold Communities created the Vital Communities™ concept. The Austin area has two such masterplanned residential developments, Headwaters in Dripping Springs and Orchard Ridge in Liberty Hill. Home buyers across generations are moving away from the traditional golf course community and are in search of master-planned communities that offer unique amenities, such as miles of nature trails, open spaces, neighborhood parks, playgrounds, resort-style pools, and, in the Headwaters community, a stargazing park near Texas Hill Country creeks. Vital Communities™ include organized events that promote physical activities like hiking, biking and yoga. The large, well-equipped fitness centers feature exercise rooms and workout areas

as well as cardio and muscle-building equipment with organized classes that will help residents meet their personal fitness goals. Both developments have a Lifestyle Director who plans year-round programs and activities for all residents. The long list of features and amenities is offered to provide ongoing opportunities for residents to pursue their favorite fitness passion, enjoy healthy living as a family and, most importantly, as a community. Other goals include connectivity – Wi-Fi and other tools that bridge the gap between neighbor and community – and environmental stewardship that preserves natural resources and makes the most of the land. Located about 30 minutes southwest of downtown Austin at the headwaters of Little Barton and Barton Creeks,

construction began in the Headwaters community in September. Home and lot sizes in phase one vary with prices ranging from the $300s to more than $700s. Builders selected for Headwaters are David Weekley Homes, Drees Custom Homes and Trendmaker Homes. About 15 miles from northwest Austin, Orchard Ridge features homes from 1,700 sq. ft. up to more than 3,300 sq. ft. built by Dream Finders Homes and Buffington Homes. Prices range from the low $200s to the $400s. As with all Vital Communities™ created by Freehold Communities, Headwaters and Orchard Ridge follow architectural and landscaping guidelines that protect and enhance property values. New homes in both communities are now pre-selling. For more information visit www.liveheadwaters. com and www.liveorchardridge.com.

– House Hunting

IN CENTRAL TEXAS,

Economics favor

NEW HOMES WHEN ALL EXPENSES ARE CONSIDERED By Wes Wigginton

W

hen you’re in the market for a home, there are dozens of decisions and considerations to take into account. Location, school districts, budget, distance from work, neighborhood selection, proximity to retail and overall quality of life are just a few factors one must consider as they plunge into one of the largest purchase decisions they’ll make in their lifetime. Many aspiring homebuyers start with a focus on cost. The costs of buying (or building) a home vary widely depending on a variety of factors. And if you’re already on a tight budget, the price of a home is often the number one consideration. But the price tag is just the starting point when you consider how all of the other budgetary line items related to living in that home will impact your monthly budget. For example, factor in things like property tax payments, homeowners insurance,

46

utilities, the cost of repairs and maintenance, and even the amount of gas you must purchase for your car to get to and from work, and many will hear the proverbial cash register, cha-ching in their heads. The traditional school of thought when considering the purchase of a home is that buying a resale home is much more cost effective than buying a new home. In many cities across Texas and the Nation, this is true. Take Dallas, for example, where the median price of a new home is a whopping 46 percent higher than the median price of a resale home there. However, in the Greater Austin area, the price difference is almost insignificant. In fact, at a recent housing forecast event hosted by the HBA of Greater Austin, Tim Sullivan of Meyers Research LLC confirmed that the median cost of a new home in this region is $274,000. Compare that to the median price of an existing home of $262,000 and you’ll see that the difference in the price tag is just

2016 Parade of Homes™ October 28 ~ November 13 • ParadeofHomesAustin.com

$12,000 or 5 percent. While $12,000 is nothing to sneeze at, once you factor in some of the cost savings that you will enjoy with a new home, you’ll quickly see that “increase” shrink to numbers that are, in many cases, barely noticeable month-to-month. These cost savings will come from lower electric bills from having a new, energy efficient home, lower maintenance costs (not to mention the warranty offered by many home builders), and manageable lawn maintenance installations. Another not-so-obvious benefit to purchasing a new home over an existing one is related to the extremely tight inventory level in our six-county region. According to experts, we have less than a three month’s supply of homes for sale in the Austin-Round Rock Metropolitan Statistical Area. In a world where a minimum of six month’s supply is considered balanced, this shortage leads to bidding wars between prospective buyers. Stories of resale homes selling the first day a Realtor


lists the home in the MLS and at prices well above asking price are all too common. In some cases, Realtors are selling homes before they even hit the MLS simply by “word of mouth.” When you buy a new home, you can say “bye-bye” to bidding wars. You can rest assured that when you walk into a new home community, the on-site sales agent will be glad to work with you to ensure you get the home you want without the back-and-forth, nail-biting experience that comes with competing with other homebuyers in the region. Much like walking into a retail store and buying an item “off the shelf”, you can skip the stress of waiting for your Realtor to call you as you sit wondering whether a seller will accept your offer.

Bottom line, we encourage you to take a hard look at buying a new home. We think you’ll be pleasantly surprised by all of the benefits that come with it. For a list of new homes in the area, visit www.AustinHomeBuilders.com and select “find a new home” from the “Home Buyers” drop down menu.

– Water Conservation

Celebrate

NATIVE LANDSCAPES

WHILE SAVING WATER & DOLLARS By Naomi Bludworth

C

entral Texas is arguably one of the most beautiful places in Texas. Often referred to as “God’s Country,” those of us who live here recognize the gem that is the natural beauty we cherish. The stunning hill country, wide-open spaces, and multiple lakes, rivers and streams that converge together in Central Texas create a habitat for hundreds of species, some of which are endangered and found nowhere else in the world, while also affording us the opportunity to enjoy what nature has to offer. Combine the features nature provides us with the region’s leaders’ desire to preserve our natural resources and further promote a standard of living unlike many cities in Texas, and you’ll find that residents here can all agree that conservation of Central Texas’ most cherished natural treasures is of great importance. The availability of water is one of the most important conservation initiatives where we can focus our

54

efforts. Central Texas is prone to drought — in some cases, long periods of drought. While we’ve recently enjoyed a period of sustained rainfall and our area lakes and reservoirs are 100 percent full, if you’ve lived here long enough, you understand that like many things, the current weather pattern falls into the category of “easy come, easy go.” It will only be a matter of time when we will see lake levels once again drop to dangerous lows. With more than 100 people per day moving to the region, our water needs will only grow. It’s an inevitable clash between population growth and limited natural resources. Members of the Home Builders Association (HBA) of Greater Austin understand the role we all play in the story of water conservation. Home builders recognize the need for a change in the landscape site plan for the region. History has shown that a hodge-podge of individual, and often conflicting, rules created by various local government entities to address such issues often make complying

difficult, if not impossible; often with steep financial costs. We have the opportunity to affect positive changes in landscape behaviors that will help conserve our water resources for their intended purpose. Understanding that water is meant to protect our health is key to initiating this change. Dumping billions of gallons of treated water on landscapes makes no sense when we consider its expense and impact on the environment, not to mention that many times the application is wasteful. So how do we become part of the solution? How do we balance the water needs of our growing communities with the landscaping residents have come to expect? We can answer these questions by taking a look at the natural landscapes around us. The HBA of Greater Austin is encouraging its members and area residents to consider native landscaping methods and plants. Native landscape pallets are beautiful and when done correctly, can be maintained with less effort, use less water and save


thousands of dollars on homeowners’ water bills. Native plant selections offer homeowners more landscape options suited for Central Texas that are both visually pleasing and drought resistant. Landscaping with native plants promotes water conservation and can cause a paradigm shift in the area’s water consumption patterns — thereby better preparing the region for even more population growth. The HBA of Greater Austin’s “Sensible Landscaping Plan” contains a manual, several checklists and a host of resource materials. The manual was published in 2015 with the help of former HBA President Hank Smith of Texas Engineering Solutions, in collabo-

ration with the City of Austin, Lower Colorado River Authority, Coleman and Associates Landscape Architects, RVI Planning, and others. The manual includes information that will help both home builders and homeowners make the right decisions for installing the proper landscapes for the area while also continuing to offer aesthetically pleasing choices. You will find a summary of regulations and tips for success. The checklists provide step-by-step guidance to help you stay on track. The maintenance checklist will help

homeowners better understand their irrigation system, watering, sunlight requirements, and information to make their landscape a success. There are also landscaping design templates, irrigation regulations, and recommendations. Working together, we have the opportunity to make a significant impact on our environment and quality of life here in Central Texas. We invite you to take a serious look at this plan and make an effort to be a part of the solution.
