Split Rail Farm Farragut’s new residential farmstead community

armstead Developments, LLC partners, Daniel Burton and Matthew Varney, are bullish on their new residential development in Farragut that will be talked about for many years to come, the way people talk about Sequoyah Hills in Knoxville. New roads, curbs and over a mile of greenway walking trails are nearing final completion with large wider home sites for new custom homes. Over 200 tons of hand-picked stone boulders from the Tennessee Mountains are being used in the front entry landscape and throughout the development green spaces. These enhancements add to the rustic environmental ambiance of Split Rail Farm, a new residential farmstead community, located off Everett Road in Farragut featuring only 48 home sites just minutes from Turkey Creek. “We are creating communities that are one with nature and allow families, friends and neighbors to gather together and enjoy green spaces, organic gardens, fruit orchards and the Farm Barn. Split Rail Farm is different because it’s not just any neighborhood … it’s a lifestyle community that will be very active and healthy and that’s what makes us unique. We feel it will be very well received in Farragut,” said Varney enthusiastically. Varney who grew up in Farragut said he and Burton are “taking a truly organic approach to real estate development with the premise that less is more and green is good.” He emphasizes that Split Rail Farm will be unlike any other community. “We want to be the first green community in Knox County that can lead by example with less density, nice custom designed homes and showcase green technologies like solar energy and

F

rain water capture to support and sustain the neighborhood amenities. Working with our partner TDS Telecom we will also be providing very fast fiber-to-the-home internet/wireless and digital television connectivity,” said Burton. “Dan and I are focused on quality and doing things the right way the first time. Architectural design style of the homes will be consistent with ‘French Country’ and ‘English Farmhouse’ that has a ‘Southern Casual’ feel using brick, stone, timbers and porches. We are nearing completion of our design guidelines / codes, covenants and restrictions that will govern our unique community concept while also protecting and preserving property values long term for our property buyers and future homeowners,” explained Varney. The developers have been working closely with Daryl Johnson and his firm, Johnson Architecture, Inc. in the design of the community Farm Barn and design specifications to establish quality of residential life that will also preserve and protect the natural environment of the property and enhance homeowner’s lives. Imagine enjoying quiet country living, meeting your neighbors in an upscale but unpretentious environment at the community Farm Barn where you can grill, enjoy family gatherings, watch sports, and entertain friends in a park like setting. In addition, you can experience the pleasure of watching wild life like deer, turkeys, birds and more amid dense hardwood forests from porches, yards and along the walking trails that meander through Split Rail Farm … a place to call home.

Perhaps you’ve heard about Jahn’s reputation as a conscientious agent, passionate about real estate and her clients. Jahn became an agent in 2009 when the economy was slowing. She uses a three-step premise: Ready, Set, Sell. First step is to help her prospective clients understand the market. Second: help clients stage the home properly for sale and guide them regarding content for ads. The next step: sell the property. But, that isn’t the last they hear from Jahn. She makes a point of checking in with them in the next year to see how things are going because they are “family.” “I offer professional, personal hands on care from start to finish. I feel you listen first and take time to review second. Take the time necessary. That is what sets me apart,” says Jahn, a wife, mom and Air Force veteran who has almost 17 years experience in property management and the real estate industry. Wayne Wilson, an East Tennessee home inspector says, “Tracye is probably one of the best realtors I’ve dealt with. She keeps her clients well informed. She’s personally attached and treats them like family. I appreciate the honesty and diligence she shows toward her customers.” One of Jahn’s clients, Suzette Laporte-Ayo said, “She was fabulous and I’m a tough customer!

How to choose a

comfortable chair Start with the Comfort test:

• Are the height and width of the chair right for you? • Is the ottoman positioned in the right place to give you maximum leg support? • Does the chair move with you as you shift positions? • Does the gliding movement smoothly adjust to your weight? • Does the chair provide good lumbar support in all positions? • Is your head supported comfortably as you lie down and read or watch TV? Can you adjust the headrest so that it lies flat when you recline? • Does the back of the chair recline sufficiently for you? • Does the chair feel stable? • Are you aware of how your whole body relaxes? Relax your body – free your mind!

Quality: Find out about the materials used to make the chair and if the chair has a warranty. Price: Consider the cost of the chair over its expected lifespan rather than the initial purchase price. Contributed by Arnwine's Home Furnishings

Invite more natural light into your home A dark home can be dreary and drain residents' energy levels rather quickly. Natural light has the power to make a person feel more energized, and it also can buoy spirits. Increasing natural sunlight in a home reduces reliance on interior lighting. This reduces energy bills and lowers the home's carbon footprint. Natural light also can help people in a home feel happier and more content. Exposure to more light can alleviate fatigue, loss of interest and sad or anxious feelings. Homeowners looking to increase the natural light in their homes, be it for medical or aesthetic reasons, can do so in a variety of ways. • Keep the drapes open. Opening blinds and curtains as far as they will go allows as much light to shine in without having to do major home renovations or spend any money at all. Homeowners concerned about privacy can install a window film that allows viewing from the inside only. • Clean the windows. Dirty windows obstruct sunlight from entering the home. Spend a free day cleaning the windows so that they'll let ample light in. • Install seamless or low-profile windows and doors. Seamless sliding doors enable a large amount of light to enter the home. Such doors can replace an entire wall to brighten up a dark area of a home. • Take inventory of dark spots. A room may be dark because it simply does not have a layout conducive to brightness. Is a wall blocking light from reaching a portion of the room? Think about changing the room's layout or even making structural changes to improve light distribution. The addition of a small window on a south- or west-facing wall can greatly improve natural light. Using mirrors can also reflect light where it is needed. • Invest in skylights or solar tubes. Skylights and solar tubes enable light to enter a home from above. Skylights are larger and require considerably more work to install, while solar tubes are more low-profile and can be put into rooms that do not abut the roofline, such as those obstructed by attic space. The tubular cylinders are installed between the roof and the ceiling and carry light through a reflective tube to the room below. Diffusers on tubular daylighting devices scatter the rays so the light doesn't cast harsh shadows, and UV filters can help protect furniture from discoloring. • Trim shrubs and trees. If trees and bushes are blocking light from entering your home, trim them to enable dappled light to come through. Deciduous trees that will naturally lose their leaves come autumn can be planted on sunny areas of the property. This way in the summer months they will shade the house and keep it cooler, while in winter more sun will stream in when the leaves are shed. • Create a three-season room. Make a spot in the home where sun will be at a premium. A solarium or greenhouse attached to the home can be a warm and sunny spot. 28 S EPTEMBE R 2 0 1 3 A PLAC E C ALLE D HO M E | FA L L

Today, LCUB serves almost 80,000 customers of combined utility services in a three county service region with 138 employees. Littleton said his job as general manager is easier because “we have some of the best people in the valley working here.” LCUB’s service centers in Lenoir City, Farragut and Cedar Bluff are open Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. For information or directions please call 865-986-6591 or visit www.lcub.com.

Fall home

improvement ome improvement projects can add value to a home and do-it-yourselfers know the sweat-equity that goes into such projects can give homeowners a greater sense of pride in their homes. But no two home improvement projects are the same, and homeowners should know that certain projects are best tackled during certain times of the year. Fall is a great season to work on your house, as the weather is often at its most agreeable once the summer heat has gone and before winter weather arrives. The following are a handful of fall-friendly home improvement projects for homeowners looking to improve their homes. Roof repair Whether you're repairing or replacing the roof, fall is a great time of year to dust off the ladder and get some work done on your roof for a variety of reasons. First and foremost, fall is ideal for roof work because you won't have to be up on the roof with the summer heat bearing down on you. This can make the project move along more quickly, which is especially beneficial if you are paying laborers to work on the roof. The fewer hours workers are fixing your roof, the less you will be paying in labor costs. In addition, fixing up the roof in the fall ensures those winter storms, be it rain or snow, won't find their way into your home via leaks. A leaky roof in winter is hard to fix, as the roof surface could be treacherous in the winter and winter winds can make it dangerous to be up on the roof at all. Addressing leaks in the fall can prevent damage to your home's interior, which can mount up if a leaky roof is not addressed until the following spring. Window work When the weather outside gets frightful, poorly insulated windows can allow cold air into the home. That often has a trickle-down effect on finances, forcing you to turn up the thermostat in an attempt to offset the cold air pouring into the home. Whether you need your windows replaced or simply need to patch up any leaks, a proactive approach to leaky or older windows in the fall can save you from unnecessarily

H

high heating bills come the winter. Addressing leaky windows also makes a home more comfortable for its inhabitants. Fall is the ideal time to address a home's windows because the temperature outside tends to be pleasant. This means you likely won't have to make much of an effort to offset the elements, and open windows in the fall won't make your home's interior very hot or cold like they might if you were to tackle the project during the summer or winter. Fixing the floors Wood flooring is a hot commodity for many homeowners. But not all flooring can be added to a home at any time of year. That's because certain types of flooring employ adhesives that need temperatures inside the home to be within a certain range, and that range is often within 70o to 80o F, which makes fall a great time to install such floors. Colder temperatures can make it difficult for the flooring to dry and bond, which will prove problematic down the road. What's more, many people entertain friends and family come late fall and into the holiday season, and it can be difficult to do so if you are busy installing new flooring. Painting projects Painting is another home improvement project that seems tailor-made for fall. A fresh coat of paint or a new color scheme around the house can give a home an entirely new look and feel. But paint can be pungent and the aromas may last if it's applied at a time of year when it can't dry while the windows are wide open. Paint fumes inside a home can make the home uninhabitable, but painting at a time of year like the fall, when you can keep the windows open during and after the project, can help air the home out. But interior painting isn't the only painting project homeowners can tackle in the fall. Many exterior paints are temperature-sensitive and need the temperature outside to be above 40o F. Paint that freezes won't dry properly, and homeowners might be left with a costly and unsightly mistake on their hands. Fall temperatures tend to be amenable to both interior and exterior painting projects, just be sure to check the weather forecast before making your first brush stroke.
