South Carolina Division recognized at 2019 PRISM Awards!

South Carolina Division recognized at 2019 PRISM Awards!

Congratulations to our South Carolina Division for receiving a ”Best Single-Family Home” award at the 2019 PRISM Awards on November 1st!  The PRISM awards, hosted by The Charleston Home Builder’s Association recognizes “excellence in the field of sales, marketing, construction, and the promotion of new homes.”

We are excited for our Magnolia design to be named as one of the best built homes in the Charleston area.

This stunning floor plan boasts almost 2400 square feet of beautiful trim details including elongated wainscoting in the dining room, custom-built lockers, and wood shelving in the spacious master closet.  The master up configuration features 3 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, a formal dining room, screened porch, flex/rec space and a 2-car garage!  However, its special features are what makes it truly stand out from the pond and “natural space” views, eco-select green features (The Magnolia has a 55 HERS Score offering your family the opportunity for lower utility bills and better indoor air quality), open stairway detail with large windows allowing for natural light, and an over-sized slider leading to the screened porch.   All entries were judged on curb appeal, functionality of floor plan, exterior and interior design, use of interior space, special design features, and construction technique/materials.

Almost two years ago, Homes By Dickerson decided to venture into the Charleston area, a completely new market for this high-performance, custom home builder.  Partnering with the developer Newland Communities, Homes By Dickerson introduced its custom-designed plans to the thriving Nexton neighborhood and has been diligently working on promoting its quality of materials chosen, craftsmanship, exceptional customer service and attention to detail.  We are honored by this award and look forward to many more years of building and growing in the Charleston market.

Another great year for Parade of Homes!

Another great year for Parade of Homes!

That’s a wrap!  The 2019 Parade of Homes Season has officially ended and Homes By Dickerson is very proud of the hard work and dedication put in by our team as well as our accomplishments!  First and foremost, we built 9 spectacular Parade Homes this year and showcased 8 of those on the tour.  All of which were original designs (both in layout and aesthetic details), high-performance, and beautifully crafted.  Then we increased our marketing efforts to ensure that our visitors had the best experience possible.  Next, we were recognized at both the Durham/Orange/Chatham and Raleigh-Wake Parade Galas with the following wins:

Last but not least you can now view our Moss Hill Townhome in Crystal Lake which features beautiful views, low-maintenance living and all of the custom trim details of a Homes By Dickerson single-family home.

Finally, we have already sold 4 of those 9 homes and looking forward to helping others find The Home of Their Life in one of our move-in ready 2019 Parade Homes!  Of course, we also have other move-in ready homes across The Triangle that you can call The Home of Your Life today!

Homes By Dickerson celebrates 10 Years of Building High-Performance Homes!

Homes By Dickerson celebrates 10 Years of Building High-Performance Homes!

Homes By Dickerson celebrates 10 years of building high-performance homes!

Click here to view our new high-performance video!

A decade ago, we made a very important decision as a building company-a decision which changed how we build each of our custom homes.  We wanted to differentiate ourselves from the competition but most importantly, we wanted to provide higher-performing homes for our clients and for the environment.  So, we got to work.  We researched vendors and programs, studied qualifications, earned certifications, and became an expert in our field-all with the intention of benefitting those who have chosen to become Homes By Dickerson homeowners.

Over the last 10 years, we have continued to embrace high-performance green building, earning us recognition as a 2018 National Green Building Standard (NGBS) Green Partner of Excellence, 2018 Major Achievements in Marketing Excellence (MAME) Best Green Home award winner, and a 2018 Market Leader Award from Energy Star (just to name a few!).

Homes By Dickerson is also honored to be a leading high-performance builder with the most single-family homes certified to the NGBS in the country*. As stewards of our client’s investment, we are dedicated to providing quality homes that offer savings, health, comfort, and sustainability. Building to the NGBS standard requires more than checking a box for energy standards, it means that our homes are designed and constructed to meet a minimum number of criteria in water efficiency, home site design, sustainable materials, indoor air quality, and homeowner education to achieve certification.  As Jon Showalter, Homes By Dickerson COO, mentions in our new high-performance video, we just do not know how to build any other way.

 

We know that high-performance, green building does not resonate with everyone.  Let’s face it-there is a lot of technical jargon that is not very sexy and it does not give you the cheapest per square footage cost.  What it does give you is quality and peace of mind.  The bottom line is that when you purchase a Homes By Dickerson home you are getting more than just a custom design from an incredibly talented team of individuals.  You are in fact purchasing a home that can save you money on your monthly utility bills, provide better air quality for your family, and is kinder to our environment.

We hope that our decision 10 years ago to build only high-performance homes will make your decision easier today to build The Home of Your Life with Homes By Dickerson!

To learn more about how our homes are built or to inquire about how you can build your high-performance green home with Homes By Dickerson, please contact us at 919-917-3132 or Whitney@HomesByDickerson.com

Final Opportunity in Haywood!
It is hard to believe that there is only one opportunity remaining in this beautiful enclave of Homes By Dickerson custom homes!  It seems like only yesterday that our team was introduced to this piece of land perfectly located off Glenwood Avenue in Raleigh.   As we walked the site and considered both the challenges and rewards, we envisioned a neighborhood which would exude southern charm by offering an unique and stunning entrance, one of the most beautiful streetscapes imaginable, and an array of custom designs with the highest attention to quality and craftsmanship.

Now, there is but one move-in ready home left for you to make  “The Home of YOUR Life!”


 






 

The History of Haywood
In just shy of three short years, Haywood has gone under development, had a spectacular Grand Opening, featured the 2015 Duke Progress Energy home, won multiple Parade of Home and MAME distinctions, and was chosen to host the 2016 HGTV Smart Home!  Needless to say, this community has had its share of accolades and has been a shining star for the duration.  Here are a few highlights:

Another Wake County Parade of Homes for the Books!

Another Wake County Parade of Homes for the Books!

Every year The Homes By Dickerson team spends countless months, long days into long nights, making sure that Parade of Homes accurately represents the best of our talents, the best of our resources, and the best of our passions.  Our reasoning is clear: We want our buyers to know that we can make their dreams a reality.  We want our homeowners to walk through the rooms we have built for them,  envisioning their life held within those very walls.  We want to continue researching, brainstorming, perfecting, designing, and building the best custom, high-performance homes available.  Parade of Homes allows us to do just that.  At the end of the day, it is not about the awards or the accolades within our industry-though we are honored to receive them.  We are just excited to take a breath, enjoy the moment, and start planning our showstoppers for 2019.  Here is to another fantastic Parade of Homes and to some incredible results from the Wake County and Durham/Orange/Chatham Parade of Homes Galas with all 8 of our 2018 Parade Homes winning an award!

Homes By Dickerson once again named Best of the Best in Chapel Hill!

Homes By Dickerson once again named Best of the Best in Chapel Hill!

Homes By Dickerson is proud to announce that we were once again named Best of the Best in Chapel Hill!  Specifically Best of the Best Construction Builder by Chapel Hill Magazine for our work in Briar Chapel.  We could not be more pleased with this honor as we strive to build the best custom, high-performance homes in The Triangle area.  The August edition of the Best of the Best in Chapel Hill by Chapel Hill Magazine touted four area home builders in this category as the best that Chapel Hill has to offer its residents and we are excited to be a part of this elite group.

Briar Chapel is the Triangle’s largest green community located in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. Homes By Dickerson offers an array of high-performance, green-certified, single-family homes in this planned community, starting from the $300s-$750s. We have a portfolio of plans to choose from that you can customize and tailor to fit your lifestyle and needs! Briar Chapel is a unique community that blends in with its natural surroundings. Amenities abound here with approximately 900 acres of preserved open space that incorporates 24 miles of walking trails, parks, community gardens and dog parks. The Briar Club is a great spot to unwind with neighbors and friends, attend community events, or fit in a quick workout or group fitness class. With two saltwater swimming pools, a splash pad for the little ones, two water slides and picnic pavilions, you don’t have to look far for lots to do! Briar Chapel even has a full-time activities director on staff who coordinates a number of interest groups and events for all ages to enjoy!







Located right off of 15/501 in Chatham County, Briar Chapel is just minutes from Chapel Hill, Durham and Research Triangle Park. With I-64, I-54, and I-440 not far, it makes Briar Chapel a convenient place to call home to have the best of it all!

Another Exciting Round of Parade Awards for Homes By Dickerson!

Another Exciting Round of Parade Awards for Homes By Dickerson!

The Homes By Dickerson team is both honored and humbled by the recognition received at the 2017 Parade of Homes Awards!  After months of designing and building every detail of eight different parade homes across The Triangle, we are proud to bring home SIX Gold Awards, ONE Silver Award and a Perfect Score during the Durham/Orange/Chatham and Raleigh-Wake Parade of Home Galas!   Our streak started strong at the DOC Parade festivities held on October 3rd at the Carolina Inn in Chapel Hill where both of our Briar Chapel entries brought home the gold.  Our beautiful Covington Farmhouse design in Henderson Place, which competed in the same categories as our Briar Chapel Bristol, was awarded with a silver award as well!   The team carried this momentum until the following week when we attended the Raleigh-Wake event on October 9th at the fantastic Reynolds Coliseum on the NC State Campus.  Homes By Dickerson was beyond thrilled when four of their five homes in the Raleigh Parade Tour were announced as Gold Winners, one even achieving a perfect score by the judges! We know how hard every builder works to showcase their talent and their designs so we are extremely grateful for the attention placed on our custom homes.  It is due to the dedication and commitment from every member of the Homes By Dickerson family that we are able to accept these accolades.

First Stop on the HBD Parade Tour-The Fairfield in Sunset Bluffs!

First Stop on the HBD Parade Tour-The Fairfield in Sunset Bluffs!

If you have not been to this wonderfully-hidden jewel in Fuquay-Varina, add this as an entry in your “must-see” list.  Sunset Bluffs is a growing neighborhood in the southwestern part of Wake County bursting with single-family homes, tree-lined sidewalks, beautiful views and convenient amenities all in a tranquil setting.  Nestled among these wooded home sites is The Fairfield, a Sunset Bluffs Parade entry from Homes By Dickerson.  When you walk into this home, get ready to long for crisp autumn days, cozy blankets and a best-seller!  This clean farmhouse style is light and airy with rustic elements found throughout the plan starting with the naturally stained columns and dark green/gray siding on the exterior.  The kitchen has a variety of custom details from the “X” pattern in the woodwork (look specifically on the side of the island and on the barn doors leading to the pantry) to the hints of charcoal gray in the island.  Carefully-selected pendant lights draw your eye upward, above the island, where the unfinished wood shows off all of its character and texture.

010_ Kitchen

Features in the family room include a charming window seat, shiplap detail as the fireplace surround which extends to the ceiling and a mantle stained to match the hardwood flooring.  The built-in shelving that flank the fireplace are enhanced by transom windows which let in natural light.

013_ Living Room  005_Foyer

The lockers in the drop zone area proudly continue the rustic theme with a shiplap background and a floating beam to sit on which accurately matches the fireplace mantle.

020_ Owners Entry

Upstairs is the master suite which features a surprising tile, gorgeous concrete gray with a fleur-de-lis pattern reminiscent of 18th century architecture and design.  This tile, supporting the stand-alone clawfoot tub, is both a jaw dropper as well as a conversation starter!  It is that perfect texture and color which complements the hint of industrial inspiration found in the incredible fixtures as well as on the floating shelves located in the full basement!  This genre is accented by the spot-on decor where rustic meets elegance and then says “Hello” to natural hues and innovative design.

When I first saw this house, two words came to mind: simply inviting.  It is not hard to see this home with a family comfortably settling in and embracing the character it offers, nurturing it and making it their own.  If these images are speaking to you in the same way, reach out to us at 919-917-3132 or info@homesbydickerson.com to make The Fairfield in Sunset Bluffs “The Home of YOUR Life!” today!
