Heading into the new year, many people feel obligated to make personal resolutions. At the same time, though, the personal resolutions we make are often left by the curb after the first few weeks. At McCall Homes, we definitely encourage setting personal resolutions. In the spirit of new beginnings, however, we also encourage focusing some of your new year resolutions on your home. In today’s blog post, we will be sharing some New Year’s resolutions that will help homeowners get the most out of their home.
Make The Most of Your Floor Plan
Whether you are purchasing a new home or have lived in your home for a few years now, the New Year is the perfect time for a fresh start. Shake things up with your floor plan — rearrange furniture, optimize each room for better use of space, and think of ways you can make the most of each area in your home. If your home has a modern, open floor plan, you will be surprised at how much flexibility you have. Even if you make a few minor changes, making the most of your home’s floor plan can improve your mood and create space that encourages productivity.
At McCall Homes, our new homes in Billings, MT come in a wide range of floor plans to meet the needs of one’s unique wants, needs, lifestyle, and budget. In fact, we have many available floor plans under $300k! If you are looking to buy a home, our home buying specialists can help you find the best floor plan for your needs so that you can make the most out of it this upcoming year!
Spend More Time Outside
In addition to getting in exercising more, many people make the resolution to spend more time outside. According to a study, spending time outside has significant and wide-ranging health benefits, such as decreased risk type II diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and stress, to name a few. That’s more than enough to convince us to spend more time outside. An easy way to spend more fun in the sun while you are at home is to have a nice backyard space. Whether you add simple patio furniture or a complete outdoor living space, you will be more likely to spend some time in your backyard than if the space was empty and boring.
At McCall Homes, the lots in our new home community, Annafeld, come standard with a yard that is 45 wide x 100 deep; some lots are designed to accommodate larger backyards at 120 feet deep. While they are smaller, there are plenty of ways to make the most of your backyard!
Become More Energy Efficient
When people think about making their home eco-friendly, their mind often goes to adding solar panels to the roof. However, there are many, less-expensive ways to make your home more energy efficient. Being mindful of the energy you use every day is a great start, whether it’s turning off lights, turning down the thermostat, or checking to make sure windows and doors are properly sealed. Additionally, exceptional insulation and energy-efficient windows can lead to extraordinary savings.
At McCall Homes, the new homes in our Annafeld living community are built with Owens Corning ComfortBuilt technology. This not only makes for eco-friendly homes, but it will help protect the value of your home, protect against air filtration, and moisture intrusion to help keep energy costs low.
