Happy Thanksgiving from Us to You

We are surrounded by simple and abundant blessings often overlooked and taken for granted:  So cheers to good health, family and friends, love and everlasting happiness.

Wishing you a belated Happy Thanksgiving  from us to you.

Oh and couldn't help myself in sharing---a little kid humor---kids say the darndest things---but speak such truth :)

Happy Home.  Happy Life.


Home-A-Rama 2014 Participation Introduction

Wendy and Jeff are thrilled to announce Heartwood Custom Homes  participation in the 2014 Home-A-Rama,  in Westfield’s premier custom home community, Brookside.  We’ll be busy at work this winter creating our dream home to share with the public in early  June 2014.  Save the date--

Brookside, is a charmed community, conveniently located on 161st just east of Carey Road just minutes from shopping, recreation, recognized golf courses and Westfield Washington Schools.  Proudly , Westfield High School has been identified as one of the most outstanding schools in the country.

By popular demand BAGI, Builder Association Greater Indiana,  has brought back this event – a great gage of the economic recovery in Central Indiana.  We entered the last and final Luxury Home-A-Rama - 2008 October in the Willows of Zionsville. Perhaps you remember our home? It won a number of awards including:  Best of Show, Best Curb Appeal, Best Interior Design, Best Lower Level, Best Outdoor Living, and Best Master Suite.

This year we enter with an exciting twist – as we have sold the home to a lovely family who will collaborate with us on the journey.  We are a great fit – in fact our paths have crossed over the years – initially through our other building company – The Old Town Design Group and our interior design firm, Everything Home.  So off we go, the dig is underway and we’re busy making framing decisions, elevation tweaks, and layouts.   Selections will start soon.

We plan to share posts of our progress throughout – so follow our blog as the  Heartwood Custom Homes project is revealed. 

As always--- if you find yourself searching for a great location, great design, great quality, and a home as unique as you are please call to schedule your free consultation today!
