Earth Day this year brings new meaning to our lives. As we all have been affected in significant ways by the pandemic covering all corners of the earth, we realize that HOME truly where the heart is. We are spending more time than ever in our homes as we seek shelter with those we love and hold most dear.
For Earth Day this year, we need to think all the more about how our homes affect our planet and how they affect our physical and mental health. I think we all realize that building energy-efficient homes that minimize our impact on our world is a good thing; it is something that we have been doing as a standard at Troxel Custom Homes for many years. But this year I think we are all starting to think about how healthy our HOME is for US! Our physical well being can be affected by heating and air-conditioning systems that ensure enough fresh air is being brought into the home – how is our air filtered and treated, what products are used and how might those affect air quality, and how is light treated (both natural and otherwise)? It’s also important to know how your home affects your mental health. Through the use of thoughtful design, careful product integration, and lifestyle consideration a home can become more than just shelter. It can actually become a refuge; a space that warmly embraces us, an environment that allows us to thrive, and a space that your family and friends recognize as special and uniquely yours. Your home can be the warm and embracing hug that we all wish we could experience more in these trying times.
If you are interested in exploring what that can look like either as a renovation to the home you have now, or a truly custom home built just for you, we are here to talk! The initial conversation where we listen to your dreams and introduce you to our process is free of charge!
The Case for Renovations (remodeling & additions):
a) Your home is dated, worn, or doesn’t meet your needs anymore … but you really like where you live – remodeling, and maybe an addition, with Troxel Custom Homes can bring your existing home up to date with your current and future lifestyle!
b) You are moving and have a specific area you want to be in, but just can’t find the right existing home – consider working with Troxel Custom Homes to show you what might be possible to renovate an existing home to meeting your expectation and desires.
The Case for a New Custom Home:
a) You are moving to an area where there just aren’t existing homes available but there is available land – Troxel Custom Homes will help you pick the right location and then help you bring your dream home to reality.
b) You want a home that will fit exactly what your lifestyle demands now and into the future – Troxel Custom Homes can help design and build that perfect home for you.
Whether you choose to renovate or to build, Troxel Custom Homes will work with you to balance your budget, the size/design of the project, and the specifications (finish details) to be sure that you can be happy for years to come in your new space.
Our local community school Waukazoo Elementary holds a Veteran’s Day Tribute each year, this was Brian’s 11th & final year attending at the invitation of his grand-daughters. All branches of service are proudly represented by these children and their families. To say it is a touching event …is putting it mildly.
We pause and pay tribute to America’s veterans, grateful for their service and sacrifice to protect and preserve the values of this great nation.
Troxel Custom Homes has been building custom designed and crafted homes in West Michigan for over 20 years.
A house is just a building until you bring a family into it… then you have a home.
Recently we had the opportunity to help Hope Pkgs. This wonderful organization provides first night necessities to children entering the foster care program.
Prior to the 2016 Lakeshore – Parade of Homes beginning, a private preview event was held to invited guests who toured and generously brought along donations. These items will enable Hope Pkgs. to continue to have the ability to prepare backpacks for new foster children of all ages.
We couldn’t agree more, a new backpack full of useful comfort items can help with sadness, confusion, and desperation in these uncomfortable situations. Thank you to our new homeowners and all who came to the event, your donations overflowed the collection area much to our delight!
The new technology of having a view from above via drone camera brings new light to what is happening in Holland.
While our town is celebrating Tulip Time, pictured from the air is Veldheer Tulip Gardens with a show of color in rows of beautiful full bloom tulips. Troxel Custom Homes likes flower too …but our passion for bringing a new home forth from the ground is this view of progress at our custom home construction site.
