LIFE | STYLE November 2020

  |  November 19, 2020

During Halloween we saw a variety of creative ways to celebrate … including a haunted field that provided a safe, fun, and novel way to experience the holiday (and share treats!) while maintaining social distancing. As we prepare to move into winter and the holiday season, we are thinking of ways to refresh a home […]

We at Gulick Group wish you a Happy Holiday Season, and a prosperous 2019!

Fresh Ideas for the Holidays and Beyond

  |  November 13, 2020

As we enter November, the holidays—and winter—are fast approaching. This year, many families may need an extra dash of creativity as holiday travel is curtailed, and winter weather puts a chill on outdoor activities that have been a respite from too much home time indoors. Fortunately, it’s a great time of year for easy home-refresh […]

The Contemporary Tudor

  |  November 11, 2020

“Classic” Tudor style was an early twentieth century adaptation of key features of 15th and 16th century British homes. The hallmarks of this traditional style are a steeply pitched roof (often slate) with multiple overlapping front gables; tall windows with multiple rectangular or diamond-shaped panes; and an upper façade typically embellished with stucco and faux […]

The leaves are falling, temperatures cooling, and Halloween is just around the corner! Things in the homebuilding industry are booming, with the accompanying challenges (material and labor cost increases and delays), but it is great to have a robust, healthy market. Folks in the mortgage industry are even busier than builders, as it seems like […]

Stunning from the Street, Your Portfolio Home

  |  October 13, 2020

Some prospective homeowners are concerned that a portfolio home will look just like every other home built from the same portfolio design. In fact, the same essential design can look dramatically different and evoke different styles by varying the exterior color, finishes, and easily- modified design features. For example, it’s relatively simple to use a […]

Kitchen Islands

  |  October 01, 2020

Kitchens are the heart of the home. From cooking and entertaining, to family meals and homework, the kitchen is where everyone gathers. The two most prominent design statements in the Kitchen are the appliances and the island. For many years, islands came in shapes, sometimes with multiple tiers and even table attachments. Today’s islands are […]

The Summer housing market has been very active locally and nationally despite COVID-19. Homes are selling quickly and there is very little standing inventory. We just sold our last house at Summer Creek and have already sold the first two inventory homes we began at Park Grove. Kids are back in school, and many of […]

Heating

  |  September 10, 2020

Whether you’re building  or buying a new home or considering heating upgrades, there are three primary factors:  your energy source, how heat is generated/distributed, and how well your home retains heat. A healthy home environment requires circulation of fresh air—so maintaining a comfortable temperature is a balancing act between conserving energy and avoiding drafts and […]

Multi-use Living Areas

  |  September 02, 2020

Over the past few months, work, school, and recreation have shifted back to our homes, reminding us just how varied our needs and activities are. Thinking through the many functions your home supports is a smart way to approach planning and outfitting multi-use living areas—whether you’re buying a new home, remodeling, refurnishing, or adjusting to […]

LIFE | STYLE August 2020

  |  August 18, 2020

Summer is almost over, kids will be “heading back” to school next month… and it looks like most schools are doing only distance learning for the time being. COVID seems to be changing the way people think about and use their homes, and combined with historically low interest rates, that has made for a very […]
