Spring Cleaning Done? Now’s the Time for Fun.

You don’t need another blog about how to make the tedious but necessary parts of spring cleaning more bearable.

Sure, it may be a good idea to wash your windows, dust from floor to ceiling and scrub the grout between your bathroom tiles. But let’s just assume you’ve already done those things and let’s skip ahead to the fun parts.

Here are a few of our favorite tips for revitalizing your home in time for the beautiful spring and summer weather:

Brighten Your Rooms
Add a splash of color by picking up some new throw pillows. Think beach colors. Use fresh-cut flowers to create centerpieces for your kitchen island or the coffee table in the family room.

Liven Up Your Library
Your bookcase can be much more than just rows of reading material. Get creative. Stack some books vertically and some horizontally. Turn a few of your favorite covers facing out. Leave spaces here and there to drop in a family photo or heirloom.

Organize with Style
Re-think the places that are chronically cluttered. Does mail pile up on the counter? Consider about adding a sorting rack. Bags and shoes strewn everywhere? Cube storage units can be stylish and versatile. They make a world of difference.

Bring Your Outdoor Spaces Back to Life
Make sure your porch, deck or patio is ready for all those beautiful warm weather evenings that await. Organize the furniture around a central focus point to make socializing more natural. Fill some strategically placed planters with greenery and flowers for pops of color. The feeling of relaxation is instant.

Of course, if you want to skip the spring cleaning and go straight to the good stuff, stop by a Brookfield community today and check out our wide selection of Move-In-Now Homes. They’re already built and all ready for you to add your unique style.

Join Us for a Model Grand Opening at Oakview Village in Glen Burnie

We’ve been telling everyone for months now about Oakview Village, our new luxury townhome community. We’ve been bragging on our new 3-level garage townhome designs and the clean, solar energy in every home, thanks to our partnership with SolarCity.

Now you can see why we’re so excited. Come out to Glen Burnie and check out our new Redwood Model Grand Opening. The doors are open from 11am to 5pm.

You’ll love the open design, the large kitchen and the relaxing owner’s suite. You can’t beat the price, either. You can be in your new home for as low as $1,401 per month (after tax savings) with no down payment and closing costs paid.

Oakview Village is the perfect location, right off of MD-100, close to Baltimore, Annapolis, D.C. and everything in between. It’s in the center of all the places you want to be, but it’s so new, it’s not showing up on Google Maps yet. So here’s how you get there:

From I-95, take Exit 43A and merge onto MD-100 East toward Glen Burnie. Take Exit 15 and turn left onto Oakwood Road. Oakview Village is just before Plymouth Lane on the left.

See you this weekend.

Brookfield Residential Goes High-Tech in Building an Ultra-Efficient Concept Home

FAIRFAX, Va. — At a glance, the new home on the corner doesn’t look out of the ordinary.

It’s stylish and contemporary, similar to the other model homes in Brookfield Residential’s Avendale planned community in Northern Virginia. You wouldn’t guess that within those walls an experiment is underway that could reshape the future of homebuilding.

Walk up the steps and through the front door of Brookfield Residential’s PureBlue Home and you’ll find yourself inside a cutting-edge concept home, a place where the latest energy-efficient technologies are tested and where a plan is being developed to pinpoint the most effective features and make them available to the everyday homebuyer.

The goal is to learn whether building sustainable homes can be a sustainable business model for a large-scale homebuilder like Brookfield Residential. So far, the company is encouraged by the results.

“The PureBlue Home is more than a model home. It’s a test lab,” said Mark Gregas, the project’s director of information technology. “Having a real home where you can implement that technology is critical because then we can say as a homebuilder that we know this technology works. We know this technology adds value for our customer. That’s something we want to provide.”

A CLOSER LOOK

It won’t hit you right away. You won’t notice that the exterior walls are not stud-framed but rather ultra-efficient structural insulated panels. You may not guess that the fresh air isn’t coming from an open window, but instead from the advanced HVAC system designed to constantly circulate clean, fresh air, while still using less energy.

You won’t notice a dozen other things. What you’ll see are beautifully designed spaces that immediately feel like home. But look closer and you’ll see that Brookfield Residential has left markers along your path from room to room. Each calls out some new technology being tested in the home.

“All the data we collect, we can compare it side by side to other models right next door— in the same neighborhood, same size, same scale,” said project manager Marc Dalessio. “We’ll be able to do a comparison to see how efficient this home actually is compared to a typically built product.”

Brookfield Residential is not a small niche builder. The company builds homes and communities in 11 major North American markets, including more than a dozen communities in Virginia, Maryland and Delaware. It’s no stranger to green building. It’s already built and learned from two previous concept homes, but The PureBlue Home, which opened to the public in March, is its most expansive effort yet.

SUSTAINABLE, INSIDE AND OUT

Solar panels harness the sun’s energy. The hybrid hot water heater and the advanced HVAC system conserve it. The structural insulated panel exterior walls—an insulating foam core sandwiched between two layers of structural board—are easy to install, airtight and should create 12 to 14 percent energy savings.

It’s all been carefully considered, and it all works together to maximize efficiency.

“We started from the very beginning,” said production manager Marc Dalessio. “We designed the pitch of the roof to be as efficient as possible for the solar panels to capture the sunlight. We then overhung the first- and second-floor windows so that in the summertime direct sunlight doesn’t come in and it gives us enough shade to lower the solar heat gain in the house.”

The sustainable effort extends outside the home as well, where Brookfield Residential also focused on building a home with minimal impact on the land surrounding it.

A greywater system and a Rainwater HOG storage system recycle both rainwater and household water to help reduce flooding, erosion and runoff, while minimizing the home’s reliance on public water. The landscaping uses native, low-water plants that are easily maintained with a drip irrigation system. 

“What makes this project unique is that the house itself is not just a standalone building,” said Dustin Dorph, the land development coordinator. “It’s actually an entire system that works with the climate, works with the interior of the building and all the different systems we have in place. It’s all integrated, and the end result is a much better home.”

BEST OF BOTH WORLDS

Energy-efficient living is not a revolutionary concept and new technology emerges every year to bring it closer to the mainstream. There are plenty of green homes out there, but truly sustainable energy efficiency has remained beyond the reach of homebuyers looking to raise their family in an affordable home in a traditional neighborhood.

Though they want to be good to the environment and they want to save money on utility bills, most homebuyers balk at the upfront costs of building an energy-efficient home or the lifestyle sacrifices required to reduce their reliance on the energy grid.

Brookfield Residential is looking to give its homebuyers the best of both worlds.

The PureBlue Home received a score of -1 on the industry’s standard Home Energy Rating System Index, meaning that the home is expected to generate more energy than it consumes. A new home built just five years ago averages a 103.

If even a fraction of these features can be integrated into a typical Brookfield Residential home, the project will be a success.

“We’re trying to create the next generation of homes,” said Robert Hubbell, president of the homebuilder’s Washington, D.C., division. “The PureBlue Home is our chance to prove that we can create our own energy. If we continue along this path, we can save our homebuyers thousands of dollars a year, and we can do it without asking them to sacrifice. We’ll actually make their lifestyle more comfortable and more enjoyable.”

Brookfield Residential’s PureBlue Concept Home Adds Efficiency Without Sacrificing Style

FAIRFAX, Va. — There’s no windmill in the front yard, no sod growing on the roof. The home doesn’t look like a spaceship and it’s not isolated on some distant mountainside.

Brookfield Residential’s PureBlue Home sits at the corner of a quiet cul-de-sac street inside the popular Avendale community in Northern Virginia. The home certainly catches your eye. The architecture is traditionally beautiful and the interior design is absolutely stunning. That’s enough to satisfy most home shoppers.

But you wouldn’t guess all that’s happening beneath the surface. You wouldn’t guess that you’re looking at an ultra-efficient, “net zero” energy concept home.

Much like the cutting-edge concept cars produced by automakers like BMW, The PureBlue Home is a showcase and an experiment, a test to see whether one homebuilder can help push an entire industry past the stigmas and stereotypes associated with modern green homes.

“We’ve set out to prove that you don’t have to sacrifice your style, your comfort or your way of life to live in an extraordinarily efficient home,” said Robert Hubbell, president of Brookfield Residential’s Washington, D.C., division. “The PureBlue Home is a real home, meant for everyday people. We think that’s how it should be, so this is an experiment to see if we can bring the latest technology to production homes.”

The PureBlue Home celebrated a successful Grand Opening in March, earning rave reviews from home shoppers and others in the real estate industry. It remains open to the public and visitors can stop in each room to see the lengths that Brookfield Residential has gone to maximize energy efficiency—from the solar panels to the healthy, high-efficiency HVAC system and the greywater system that captures and recycles rainwater.

But visitors can also see that those efforts have not infringed on the dynamic design Brookfield Residential has become known for.

“This is one of the most attractive homes we’ve ever built,” Marketing Manager Erin Smith said. “Throughout this project, we really put equal emphasis on sustainability and style.”

Brookfield Residential is no stranger to green homebuilding.

For a decade, the team has been experimenting and expanding its energy-efficient options. But Brookfield Residential is also a production homebuilder, with homes and communities in 11 major North American markets. Its Washington, D.C., division builds in more than a dozen communities in Virginia, Maryland and Delaware. They offer everything from townhomes to luxury estate homes.

Through its Brookfield Blue program, the homebuilder already boasts an expansive portfolio of efficient, sustainable options. The PureBlue Home is an effort to take it a step further. Rather than marketing and selling it as a complete package, Brookfield Residential hopes to pinpoint the most effective elements and make them available for a variety of home styles and floorplans through Brookfield Blue.

UNSEEN EFFICIENCY

To bring The PureBlue Home to life, Hubbell enlisted some of the division’s sharpest minds from a variety of fields and disciplines. Each brought a unique perspective and fresh ideas. The result is that many of the most innovative features are seamlessly integrated and almost imperceptible.

“The biggest compliment that we hear is when someone tours the home and they tell us, ‘This isn’t what I expected at all,’” Hubbell said. “That’s because we’re all trained to think that an energy-efficient home is supposed to look a certain way. It’s supposed to be weird, cold and impersonal. We have to get beyond that. I think this will be a big step in the right direction.”

The PureBlue Home is more like an exhibition of modern style —sleek and trendy yet cozy and comfortable. It feels like home, first and foremost. And, by the way, the bathrooms and appliances are designed to conserve water and energy. The air you’re breathing has been conditioned for the healthiest possible air quality.

The cabinets, the counters, the carpet, even the driveway and the landscaping, all of it is sustainable and eco-friendly.

“We really went above and beyond as far as trying new things,” Smith said. “As you walk around the home, inside and out, there’s a story behind everything you see. Everything was chosen for a reason, and it all works really well together.”

A BRIGHT FUTURE

Because PureBlue is a long-term experiment, the team won’t have the information it seeks next week or even next month. The answers will reveal themselves over time, but so far, they are optimistic.

“All the data we collect, we can compare it side by side to other models right next door— in the same neighborhood, same size, same scale,” said project manager Marc Dalessio. “We’ll be able to do a comparison to see how efficient this home actually is compared to a typically built product.”

Dalessio said The PureBlue Home scored an impressive -1 on the industry’s standard Home Energy Rating System Index, meaning that the home is expected to generate more energy than it consumes. A new home built just five years ago averages a 103. If even a fraction of these features can be integrated into a typical Brookfield Residential home, the project will be a success.

In fact, the team has already heard so many compliments about the new floorplan that they are considering adding it to their home design collection. For now, though, the team is excited to watch as visitors tour the home and get a sense of everything the company is doing to build homes where energy efficiency and stylish comfort can co-exist.

“Innovation is in our DNA,” Hubbell said. “We’re always trying to make a better home—better for the environment and better for the family who lives in it. You shouldn’t have to choose one or the other. If you tour The PureBlue Home, you’ll see that Brookfield Residential is pushing past those preconceived limitations. And if I was looking for a new home, that’s the type of builder I’d want to work with.”

Brookfield Residential’s PureBlue Concept Home Blends Energy Efficiency with Healthy Living

FAIRFAX, Va. — What does it take to build a healthy home? And if you build one, can you do it again and again? Can you make it efficient and sustainable and accessible to the everyday homebuyer?

These were among the questions that Robert Hubbell, president of Brookfield Residential’s Washington, D.C., division, raised when he assembled a group of his sharpest, most forward-thinking team members.

There were no rules, he told them, no limitations. He challenged them to create something that would improve the way Brookfield Residential does business. He challenged them to innovate.

The result is The PureBlue Home.

It opened in March at the Avendale community in Northern Virginia. It’s described as a concept home, designed to explore the latest healthy, energy-efficient technologies and find out how they fit with the way homeowners want to live today, tomorrow and far beyond.

The team is testing new technology to improve air quality and fight the spread of germs, new products to take the stress out of household chores, and new systems to reduce the home’s impact on the environment.

“We’ve taken some of our best team members and given them the opportunity to be creative and take some risks, without any consequences of failure,” Hubbell said. “What they’ve come up with is a home that is designed to create the best experience for a family living there. It’s about energy efficiency and healthy living. It’s healthy for that family and healthy for the environment.”

The PureBlue Home is not unlike the concept cars that automakers produce each year, meant to test the latest innovations and show the public what is ultimately possible. It’s a proving ground and the takeaways from the project are expected to yield healthier, more efficient homes for all of Brookfield Residential’s homebuyers, sooner rather than later.

HEALTHY AND ACCESSIBLE

Brookfield Residential is not a small niche builder. The company builds homes and communities in 11 major North American markets, including more than a dozen communities in Virginia, Maryland and Delaware.

Building one healthy, sustainable home can certainly be done when money is no object. Making healthy features available and accessible to a wide swath of homebuyers? That’s the challenge.

“The PureBlue Home is more than a model home. It’s a test lab,” said Mark Gregas, director of information technology. “Having a real home where you can implement that technology is critical because then we can say as a homebuilder that we know this technology works. We know this technology adds value for our customer. That’s something we want to provide.”

It begins with the air you breathe.

Brookfield Residential is experimenting with an advanced HVAC system that not only knows how to maintain the right temperature but also the ideal air quality. It’s designed to constantly circulate clean, fresh air.

It’s about creating a healthy living environment.

The bathroom is where most germs congregate within a house. And that’s where Brookfield Residential is testing new technology to combat them. Start with the automatic flush toilet or the water-saving faucets that turn on or off with just the softest touch of a fingertip. They’re more sanitary and help keep the entire house cleaner by reducing the spread of germs.

“Thankfully, we’re well beyond the biggest problems of years gone by—lead paint, mold and asbestos,” said production manager Marc Dalessio. “But in the average home, there are still any number of elements at play that contribute to an unhealthy environment. We’re finding ways to get beyond them and make a home as healthy as possible.”

A GROWING OPTIMISM

Creating a healthy home also means building in a way that’s better for the environment. It’s not always noticeable at first glance, but Brookfield Residential has left nothing out.

The recycled fly ash foundation is more durable, requires less water and emits fewer global warming gases. The reflective, low-energy house wrap used during construction adds insulation and also deflects 97 percent of radiant heat year round. The carpet is made of recycled textile fibers. It produces less waste and the manufacturing process produces lower emissions.

Outside the home, the landscaping includes native, low-water plants fed by a drip irrigation process. The Water Hog system captures and recycles rainwater to reduce flooding, erosion and runoff. It also means clean, healthy drinking water is available in case of emergencies.

“The uniqueness of this project is that the house itself is not just a standalone building,” Dustin Dorph, the project’s land development coordinator. “It’s actually an entire system that works with the climate, works with the interior of the building and all the different systems we have in place.”

Brookfield Residential will continue to test the effectiveness of the features included in the home, but team members are optimistic about the results. The home received a score of -1 on the industry’s standard Home Energy Rating System Index, meaning that it should create more energy than it consumes. A standard home built just five years ago scores a 103.

Equally important, visitors to the new home have been raving about the experience and asking about the various features. Though Brookfield Residential already offers a wide selection of healthy, efficient options within its Brookfield Blue program, The PureBlue Home is expected to lead to new options and ideas that will result in a better home environment throughout Brookfield Residential communities.

“There aren’t many homebuilders willing to dedicate the time and money to an experiment like this,” Hubbell said. “Over the years, we’ve learned that taking care of your homebuyers really is the best business model. A healthy home is a better home, and anyone who visits PureBlue knows that Brookfield Residential is working hard to build the healthiest homes out there.”

Brookfield Residential Builds a New Concept for the Future of Homebuilding

FAIRFAX, Va. — Automakers do it all the time.

BMW is known for its concept cars, the “future on four wheels” designs that get car lovers drooling over the possibilities.

But concept homes? Not something you see every day.

That’s what makes Brookfield Residential’s new PureBlue concept home so intriguing. Like BMW’s creations, The PureBlue Home at Avendale in Northern Virginia is not for sale. Rather, it’s an experiment aimed at re-imagining the future of a multi-billion-dollar industry, building better homes for the average family.

“We’re trying to create the next generation of homes and PureBlue is an effort to try to push us there,” said Robert Hubbell, president of Brookfield Residential’s Washington, D.C., division. “We challenged ourselves to come up with a new design that also is energy efficient, so that we can talk about a program where housing can sustain itself.”

THE TEST LAB

Brookfield Residential is no small custom niche builder.

It has more than 50 years of experience and builds homes and communities in 11 major North American markets. Its Washington, D.C., division builds in more than a dozen communities in Virginia, Maryland and Delaware. They offer everything from townhomes to luxury estate homes.

To bring The PureBlue Home initiative to fruition, Hubbell scoured his staff and assembled a diverse, ambitious, forward-thinking team. He gave them the freedom to take chances and risk failure on the path to innovation.

From the solar panels on the roof to the recycled fly ash cement foundation, everything was considered as Brookfield Residential sought out ways to make the home efficient, healthy and aesthetically beautiful.

“The PureBlue Home is more than a model home. It’s a test lab,” said Mark Gregas, director of information technology. “Having a real home where you can implement that technology is critical because then we can say as a homebuilder that we know this technology works. We know this technology adds value for our customer. That’s something we want to provide.”

SCORING A VICTORY

Marc Dalessio did a double take when the first score came in. The goal was a “net zero” home, and all along Dalessio, the production manager, suspected they’d be close. They’d put an incredible effort into seeking out and incorporating a wide range of energy-efficient features, as well as new building materials and construction methods.

The Home Energy Rating Index evaluation would tell them if they’d succeeded. A standard home built five years ago scores a 103 on the HERS scale. A score of 0 means the home is generating all the energy that it requires. PureBlue is expected to be even better than that.

“When I saw that we’d received a minus-1 HERS score, that was just an awesome moment,” he said. “This is an ongoing experiment, but it gives us confidence that we can provide an extraordinary level of efficiency without asking homebuyers to alter their lifestyles. We’re actually making their lives easier and more comfortable, while adding significant energy savings.”

Brookfield Residential won’t be offering The PureBlue Home to the everyday buyer. That was never the intention. Instead, they’ll use the lessons learned from the project to expand their portfolio of features, providing additional options that can make all of their homes significantly more efficient.

EFFICIENT, SUSTAINABLE AND BEAUTIFUL

Among Dalessio’s favorite features are the structural insulated panels used for the exterior walls. SIPs, which replace typical stud wall construction, include an insulating foam core sandwiched between two layers of structural board. They’re easy to install, airtight and should create 12 to 14 percent energy savings.

The PureBlue Home also includes solar roof panels, a hybrid hot water heater and a high-efficiency HVAC system for added energy savings. The greywater system minimizes flooding, erosion and runoff, while reducing water usage. And the landscaping uses native, low-water plants that are easily maintained with a drip irrigation system.

“What makes this project unique is that the house itself is not just a standalone building,” said Dustin Dorph, the land development coordinator. “It’s actually an entire system that works with the climate, works with the interior of the building and all the different systems we have in place. It’s all integrated, and the end result is a much better home.”

Brookfield Residential even created the home’s interior design with sustainability in mind. The kitchen bartop was repurposed from a black walnut tree removed during community development. The team enlisted furniture artist Vicco Von Voss to turn it into a masterpiece.

“We really went above and beyond trying to look for new things,” Marketing Manager Erin Smith said. “You can walk through this home and everything truly has a story to tell.”

BUILDING SOMETHING BETTER

The PureBlue Home is ultimately designed to shape Brookfield Residential’s story. Part of the company’s core mission is to always innovate, whether within the homes they build or the communities they create.

Hubbell believes this experiment will pay dividends sooner rather than later. The PureBlue Home opened to the public in March. After a successful Grand Opening at Avendale, it’s seen a steady stream of visitors touring the home, stopping in every room to learn how each unique feature contributes something special to the project.

“If you go back to the automobile analogy, you’ll see concept cars that manufacturers build and what they learn from those concept cars goes into their new designs to make their cars more attractive, more efficient,” Hubbell said. “The same is true for us. Anyone who walks into this home sees something that catches their eye or captures their imagination. When they leave, they know that Brookfield Residential is an innovator and a Brookfield home can make their lives better.”

Work in Complete Comfort with a Perfectly Designed Home Office

It’s a wired world we’re living in. More and more, a home office is a necessity, rather than a luxury.

If you work from home regularly, or even just occasionally, then you know what a difference it makes to have a dedicated, comfortable place to get your work done. That’s why most Brookfield floorplans include a built-in study and other home designs feature flexible spaces that you can mold into your ideal home office.

You’re likely going to be spending long hours in your study, so it’ll be time well spent when you design it to maximize your productivity and creativity. Ask yourself these questions as you begin to plan your space:

What type of environment do you work best in?

Do you like bright colors, natural light and a scenic view? If so, choose bold colors and leave your windows wide open. Or maybe you need isolation to minimize distraction. You’ll want a door you can close and blinds to keep your mind from wandering outside the window.

Are you analog or digital? Or both?

If you need to hold hard copies in your hands, think about built-in bookshelves or a filing cabinet to hold all your important documents. But if you’re working completely from the cloud, you’ll have plenty of extra space to add a window seat or a couch, when you need a break from your desk chair.

What inspires you?

Decorate  your office with the things that motivate you to do your best work. Maybe it’s a few favorite photos of your family. Maybe it’s a favorite quote, framed and hung on the wall. Or a vase filled with bright, cheery flowers. Whatever you choose, always surround yourself with the things that create an environment of productivity.

What distracts you?

Sure a TV in your office sounds like a good idea, but is it? If you get sucked in to your favorite show, you’re probably not getting a lot of work done. So be sure to minimize your distractions so you can do your very best work.

As you search for design ideas, be sure to come out to a Brookfield community and tour our professionally designed model homes. You’ll find some great inspiration for your brand new home office.
