Don’t miss the next series of open houses for the Beachtown community.  All homes and townhomes currently on the market will be open for tours between 2:00 and 4:00 on April 3, 10 and 17th.

Well, we are down to final punch list items.  It is hard to believe this home will be 100% done in just days and this build adventure will be over. 

The house really looks great, particularly with new professionally designed landscaping plan. 

As is our approach to the entire build, we specifically selected plants that would be low maintenance but still look great.  We also added great landscaping details like a stone path to the ground floor living and shower area.  Rather than just going w/ small shrubs, we also planted a variety of palms that provide some much needed visual and height differentiation and interest.

With the landscaping we also had a multi-zone professional sprinkler system installed.  The only hose you’ll need is for washing down your fishing gear!

The Beachtown Dream Home meets the Fortified...for safer living (R).


As I have documented in early posts,  this house is built to exceed the most stringent building codes.  Today we received our letter confirming that 810 Shiraz Passage (the Beachtown Dream Home) has earned the Fortified…for safer living(R) designation by the Institute for Business & Home Safety.      

I would never build or buy a home on the island that does not meet the requirements of this program.  I am extremely pleased and proud to have achieved it for the Beachtown Dream Home as this truly is the gold standard in quality construction.     

The Beachtown Dreamhome also received its Texas Windstorm Certification on 8/25/2010/
