Our New Home!

Our New Home!

Come See Us in Downtown Montgomery!

It was a bittersweet moment when we moved out of office suite at the Millennium Business Systems Building in Symmes Twp on a cold, winter day in January. It wasn’t exactly the smoothest move with losing our original mover five minutes before starting (shout out to All My Sons Moving Company for saving the day!) and then Drew Mannix, our skilled videographer, slipped and fell off the delivery truck! But, we figured it out, wiped Drew off and settled ourselves into our new home at 9361 Montgomery Rd Suite D in the heart of Montgomery!

Moving into a new office is a lot like moving into a new home…it takes a while to get settled. Especially, since Millennium had become home for so many years. It was the place where Build Cincinnati grew from just being my Dad, Bill, and I to a team of many! We had fantastic neighbors, our friends at First Title, and incredible landlords, the copier and printer Mavens at Millennium Business Systems.

Now, with over a month under our belt in our brand new digs here at Montgomery Commons, we are now excited to call ourselves Montgomery residents. Being located smack dab in the heart of downtown Montgomery, we’ve already been enjoying the new neighborhood by eating at European Cafe and Napa Kitchen and grabbing a drink or three at Z Wine Gallery. Hopefully you’ll see our sign next time you drive by on Montgomery Rd.

We’d love to see you! Take a look at us working hard in the office below! Or feel free to come see us or give us a call at 513.260.0424 !

Townhome Living Is On the Rise

Townhome Living Is On the Rise

With land prices going up across the board along with building costs, townhome living has become increasingly attractive to all sorts of buyers. Townhome living is nothing new as they’ve been around for decades, but recently, options are becoming more and more prevalent.

Now, it might be obvious, but what is a townhome? If you Wikipedia it, the history of a townhome is quite interesting considering why people often decide to live in a town home:

In the past, “a townhouse was the city residence of a noble or wealthy family, who would own one or more country houses in which they lived for much of the year. From the 18th century, landowners and their servants would move to a townhouse during the social season.”

It’s funny to see that even in the past, people we’re attracted to townhomes because of the social component. That couldn’t more true today. Since townhomes are typically vertical in nature with multiple floors of living, they tend to be clusters with many units in one complex. This can be very desirable when located around vibrant and bustling areas where buyers are looking to capitalize on their surroundings rather than focus on maintenance of their homes.

And, with pricing going up across the board and demand for living options near these walkable districts at an all time high, townhomes are becoming a great option when zoning allows. In the near future, we see townhomes and more dense units hitting the market in an effort to create more “affordable” or workforce housing options.

So, lets take a look at some of the top townhome projects in the works near in Cincinnati.

A Dummy’s Guide to Homearama in Cincinnati!

A Dummy’s Guide to Homearama in Cincinnati!

Homearama is days away and you should start getting excited because the homes are amazing! We know this first hand because we’ve been there over the past few months and have seen the home come together. We’re spending so much time there since we’re lucky enough to represent Sterling Homes with their #Woodburn show home.

So now that we’ve agreed that Homearama is worth the trip, there are a few things that you need to know to enjoy the show fully!

When is the show and what are the hours? Well, you’ll have no shortage of opportunity to get out there. The show runs from July 20th to August 5th and runs from 4-10pm Monday through Thursday and 12-10pm Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

Pro Tip: The best time to visit are the off hours when it’s the least busy. Typically, that’s around 4 pm on the weekdays or late afternoons or evenings on the weekends. 

Where is it? It’s up in Union Township…don’t know where that is? It’s basically where Mason meets Lebanon at Route 42 and Columbia Rd. For the best direction, CLICK HERE for the Google Map. It’ll get you right where you need to go!

Tickets: Buy Tickets before the show! We have access to tickets at a discounted rate if you come to us EARLY!! That means this week or early next so don’t dilly dally. If you want to save a few bucks, you can always go to Kroger or buy them on the cincybuilders.com website. Click here to buy tickets now or email us at [email protected] and we’ll get you set up!

What to look for? Besides coming to see me, the Build Cincinnati Team and of course, the Sterling Woodburn home, there are lots of cool things to see! Seriously though, the homes start at $1,100,000 purchase price and only go up so there are all kinds of incredible features you may only see on HGTV or at Homearama. Some of our favorite things that you’ll get to see are the tunnel between two homes, the comeback of brass, a multi-generation home (yes, that’s a real thing!) and mailboxes with fire coming out of them! Ok, that last one might be a stretch, but they do have a gas flame that’s an incredible touch to the community.

The Lebanon Train: Make a day out of Homearama by riding the Mason & Monroe Train. You can ride to the show and back with the kids as it’ll let you out just a couple hundred yards from the show. We’ll be taking our daughter on the train and to the show so we encourage you to join! For details, click here

The Entertainment: Come to the homes, but stay for the party. Almost every night there will be different types of entertainment! Click Here for a list of fun events going on at the show.

Next Year’s Homearama: Want to save some major money on your next custom home? Homearama is the place to do it with plenty of savings from vendors and suppliers. Reach out to Build Cincinnati today so we can share how to build in the new Kensington community on the edge of Mason and Symmes Township right near the Fields Ertel exit on I71.
