Hint of Fall


Today’s weather is simply perfect, fall is upon us and is gracing us this morning with a pleasantly cool refreshing breeze.

Ideal weather for the workers who are giving it their all on the 2012 Fall Homearama houses.

This year’s Homearama features 10 exquisite houses built by various builders.

Feature Homes:

  • The Globe, The Charity House to benefit the Global Friendship House at Old Dominion University, constructed by Strickland Homes. The Global Friendship House will be a dormitory that will serve the needs of international students and promote world understanding.
  • The EVMS Healthy House, The Charity House to benefit the Eastern Virginia Medical School Fund, which supports the school’s teaching, discovering and caring missions. The home is being constructed by L.R. Hill Custom Builders and will demonstrate to visitors how EVMS supports the health and wellbeing of the community.
  • Hampton Roads Magazine’s “Coastal Idea House” by Stephen Alexander Homes, will host cooking demonstrations, wine tastings and other activities, as well as feature items available from Hampton Roads Magazine advertisers.
  • The Norfolk House, built by Richardson Homes/Viridian Homes, will highlight the host city of Norfolk and its amenities
  • The Sister City House, built by Definitive Homes, will highlight the host city’s relationship with their sister city of Norfolk, England.
  • The Get Pink with Sentara House, built by ABT Custom Homes, will help to generate awareness of breast cancer prevention and survivorship.
  • Simple Elegance, from The New Economy House Series, built by DeBord Custom Homes, will showcase a cottage designed by Marianne Cusato. The smaller home design will merge traditions of the past with the housing trends of today.
