Lighting Lingo You Should Know When Building a New Home

Affecting both the aesthetics and functionality of a space, most people can agree that lighting is a very important part of the home building process. Today, there are many factors that go into creating the perfect lighting plan that fits your lifestyle.

With the right “lighting lingo” (courtesy of our friends at Progress Lighting), you can make wise, informed decisions for lighting your home beautifully and efficiently.

Types of Fixtures:
•    Luminaire: Light fixture, including the lamp (bulb).

Lighting Types

 

Light Sources:
•    Light Emitting Diodes (LED): LEDs are semiconductor devices that produce visible light when an electrical current passes through them. Generally speaking, LEDs are more efficient, durable, versatile and longer lasting than traditional light sources.

•    Compact Fluorescent Lamp (CFL): CFLs are fluorescent light bulbs that have been compressed into the size of a standard-issue incandescent bulb. Modern CFLs typically last at least six times as long and use around a quarter of the power of an equivalent incandescent lamp.

Light Measurements:

•    Lumen: The most common measure of light output. Lumens measure the amount of light produced by a bulb. The more lumens in a light bulb, the brighter the light.

•    Watt: A measure of electric power (not how bright a light is). The rate at which electric energy is transferred by an electric circuit.

•    Efficacy: A measure of how much light a source produces for every watt of power it consumes. Expressed in lumens per watt.

•    Color Rendering Index (CRI): A unit of measure that defines how well colors are rendered. The CRI means better color rendering, or less color shift. CRIs in the range of 75-100 are considered excellent. An incandescent lamp operates at 100 CRI.

•    Correlated Color Temperature (CCT): Color appearance is communicated using correlated color temperature (CCT) on the Kelvin (K) scale. For most interior lighting applications, warm-white (2700K to 3000K) is preferred.

Beazer is proud to partner with Progress Lighting to offer a variety of these lighting options to buyers.  Be sure to take this quick guide as a cheat-sheet when you sit down with your design consultant at the Beazer Design Studio to select your finish options.  To learn more about new home lighting, visit www.progresslighting.com, or connect with Progress Lighting on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Houzz.

Personalize Your Living Spaces To Meet Your Needs…at No Additional Cost

One major perk to buying a brand new home versus a preexisting home is the ability to personalize. For most builders this means adding rooms or additional structures, selecting light fixtures, backsplashes, additional décor finishes, and more, for an additional fee. For Beazer Homes, it  means the freedom to choose how you want to live in your new home with our no cost floor plan options.

Our Choice Plans allow new home buyers the flexibility to choose from multiple home layout options, offering you the ability to reallocate your new home’s space for the kitchen, master bath, and additional areas based on the needs of your family, at no additional cost.Beazer Homes Choice Plans

Beazer Homes understands that not everyone utilizes space in their home the same way. Perhaps you’re the chef of the house, the one who will do a majority of the cooking. If that’s the case, it may be easier for you to have a kitchen that allows for your oven, stove top, and refrigerator to be located relatively close to each other, making it simple to access everything you need to complete the perfect home cooked meal. On the other hand, you may have multiple cooks in the house, or entertain often. In this case, you might prefer a larger kitchen island, with your appliances a bit more spread out so that multiple cooks can have their own zone. Whatever the case, Beazer gives you the choice to pick how you want to live in your kitchen, and select the layout that fits your needs at no additional cost.

This same concept applies to your master bath. Do you have to wake up hours before your significant other? If so, you may prefer a master bathroom with the closet attached, allowing you to get ready in a designated area, away from the bedroom, so that your partner can continue to sleep peacefully. We like to call this our “Marriage Saver” option! But, if the two of you wake up and get ready at the same time, you can opt for the closet to be located off the bedroom, opposed to the master bathroom, giving you more space throughout the room for two people to get ready at the same time.

Other Beazer Homes Choice Plans include selecting an upstairs loft space versus an additional bedroom. Or, opting for a formal dining room or a study.*

Here at Beazer Homes we know that not everyone lives the same way. Therefore, we provide our home buyers the ability to live differently from their neighbors, and to select the new home floor plan that’s right for their family. That means more choices, without compromising your budget! Search now for a new Beazer home near you, and be sure to ask a New Home Counselor about the Choice Plans in the community you’re interest in.

*Disclaimer:  Images/pictures may not be representative of the plans/homes available in your area.  Paid options and choice options are different.  Paid options cost and choice options are no additional cost.  Inquire with community for all available options.

Beazer Homes Division Presidents Bike To Support Multiple Sclerosis

Over 35 years ago, The Executive Director of the Minnesota Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, Will Munger, and his then-10-year-old son decided to ride their bikes from Duluth, Minnesota to Minneapolis. The novice riders were unable to complete the 150-mile ride in one day and had to spend one night in Hinckley, about halfway between the two cities. When he and his son completed their ride and arrived in Minneapolis, Will thought that if he and his son could complete 150 miles in two days, others could too. Years later, in 1980, 200 cyclists duplicated Will’s original ride in the first Bike MS ride and raised over $30,000 for the Minnesota Chapter. Today, Bike MS is a series of 100 cycling events held across the country – at least one ride in every state. The rides vary in length – from as little as 3 miles in one day, to 250 miles over a five day period.

Beazer Homes is proud to stand behind Bruce Craig, Division President of Beazer Homes – Houston, and Troy Radelat, Division President of Beazer Homes – Dallas as they prepare for the BP MS 150 ride in April. The BP MS 150 is between 160 and 180 miles, and is the largest Bike MS event in the country with an average of 13,000 cyclists and 3,500 volunteers. This isn’t Bruce and Troy’s 1st rodeo! Troy has been a bike enthusiast since his teenage years, but has actively been riding for the past seven years. Bruce began riding during the summer of 2014. He participated in his first “organized” ride with Troy in August last year. They rode in the “Hotter’N Hell Hundred,” which takes place in Wichita Falls in northern Texas.

More about Bruce…

Bruce was initially drawn to the MS150 based on the lure of such a challenging, long-distance ride. “As I’ve learned more about MS and the many people that it impacts, I have been shocked to discover how debilitating and far reaching this disease truly is.  As I have been trying to raise money, friends and co-workers have shared their stories with me about how this disease has impacted them in some way.  For some it’s people in their family; for a couple of others, I’ve come to learn that they actually have MS.  So it’s turned out to be a win-win.  I get to ride a challenging distance with a good friend of mine (yep, Troy!), and raise money for a good cause at the same time.” If you would like to learn more about Bruce or support his efforts, we invite you to visit his page.

More about Troy…

Troy was similarly intrigued by the challenge of the event, with deeper ties and draws to the MS150. “First, I had some medical issues occur with a close member of my family that caused my wife and me to spend considerable time in the hospital.  I was amazed at the dedication of the hospital staff including the nurses, doctors, staff, etc.  It became clear to me that modern medicine and the people who have charged themselves with delivering it on a daily basis are nothing short of a miracle.

“The second and equally important thing that occurred by pure chance was that I met with an existing Beazer homeowner in the Dallas Fort Worth area to review some requests on their home that we are constructing for them.  I learned that the customer has MS and we spent time talking about the disease and how it has affected his life.  He has such a positive outlook about the reality of his situation that I was incredibly impressed and immediately knew that I wanted to do something to help.” If you would like to learn more about Troy or support his efforts, we invite you to visit his page.

We will be keeping up with Bruce and Troy on their journey to the BP MS150, therefore check back soon for an update and interesting insights about their training progress.

Baby Proofing Your Brand New Home

baby decorCongratulations, there’s a baby on the way! Now that you’re expecting, it’s time to get prepared for your little bundle of joy. One important step is to ensure your home will be safe before the baby arrives because they’ll be moving around before you know it.

Baby proofing your home involves removing all potential dangers your baby may encounter. When it comes to getting your new Beazer home ready for baby, some steps are more difficult than others. Be sure you are prepared now so that you can relax once the baby arrives.

Importance of Baby Proofing Your New Homebaby proofing new home

You will be amazed at how much danger your baby is exposed to while in the comfort of your own home. The key to baby proofing is to make sure your baby is safe. However, oftentimes we don’t take into account that baby proofing your home also helps to ensure your baby is comfortable, and able to move around the house without having any accidents. As a parent, you will have peace of mind knowing your home is safe for your baby.

Important Areas To Consider When Baby Proofing

  • Bathroom: The best way to baby proof your bathroom would be to consistently keep the bathroom door closed. However, this may not always be possible as sometimes you are bound to forget. Therefore, take extra precautions by installing safety locks on all toilet lids to ensure that even if your precious baby finds a way into the bathroom he/she will not be able to access the toilet.
  • Electricity: Babies are naturally very curious and so it is not uncommon to find them poking their little fingers into electrical outlets. To prevent your baby from having a serious accident with electricity, cover all of your new home’s outlets.
  • Doors: Once your little one grows tall enough to reach the door knob and walk around on their own it becomes harder to keep an eye on them.  Be sure to put child proof covers over your new home’s door knobs so that your baby can’t escape into other rooms, or worse, go outside alone.
  • Glass: Your baby will love to crawl throughout the house, touching items along the way. Be sure all glass and ceramic knickknacks are displayed on shelves located high up, out of your baby’s reach.

What To Consider For House Hunting Success

The prospect of finding a new home is exciting, but the house hunting task should be approached with some degree of preparation.  Before you begin the search for the perfect property, take the time to define what it is you want in a home.  Here are some suggestions that will help to give your vision a little clarity, and ensure you use your time efficiently, only considering properties that are really a good fit for your needs.

Location Matters

One of the first points to address is what part of town you would like to call home.  Think about which neighborhoods would provide the range of features that you like.  Maybe that means being close to your favorite restaurants and shopping.  Or, would it be nice to live close enough to work that you can avoid the nightmare of rush hour traffic?  Perhaps you want the new home to be located within a certain school district or even close enough to the school so that your children can walk with ease.

Size and Layout

Choice PlansBefore you start house hunting, consider your family’s needs in terms of square footage for common areas like the living room, den, kitchen, and dining room.  These areas of your new home will likely be the main gathering places for the family, therefore it makes sense to ensure they are large enough for everyone and your furniture.

The general layout also matters. Perhaps you prefer an open floor plan with fewer walls making rooms feel larger. Consider how many bedrooms it would take for every family member to be comfortable. Do you need a guest room or in-law suite? Or maybe a loft? With Beazer’s Choice Plans you can personalize the kitchen, master-bath, and secondary areas based on how you want to live in them, for free!

Also think about the number of levels that will be best for you in the present and the future. If you’re an empty-nester looking to retire and live the rest of your life in your new dream home, you may want a house that is all one level. If it’s important for you that the living spaces be on the first floor, and the bedrooms on the second, make note of that for your home hunting checklist.

Nashville Back Porch

Outdoor Living

Not all of your concerns focus on what is happening inside the home.  Take the time to consider what you would like in terms of the yard.  Perhaps you like the idea of a smaller front yard that is mainly ornamental, and easy to keep up.  At the same time, you may want a larger back yard that has plenty of room for your kids and pets to play. If outdoor living is something that is important to you, be sure you’re hunting for houses that include a porch or a deck. Some homes even offer outdoor fireplaces or kitchens.

A new home is a major investment.  Take your time house hunting and decide exactly what you want in terms of location, size, and layout.  With some patience and planning, your next home can be your dream home! Read reviews by Beazer homeowners who did just that. Then, start the house hunting process on our website.
