Turn Hallmark Homes Group’s New Homes in Montgomery County Into Your Favorite Fun Time Destination

Categories: New Homes in Montgomery County | Posted: March 31, 2019

At Hallmark Homes Group, we understand that your home is more than just a place where you sleep and eat. It’s your family’s base of operations, the place where your days begin and the place where you retreat after a hard day in the outside world. It’s the place where you build memories and where you feel safe. And, it’s the place where you, your family, and your friends can kick your feet up and unwind.

As Hallmark Homes Group continues building new homes in Montgomery County, we’re ready to make sure your next house is everything you want it to be. That means going beyond a comfortable living room, a state-of-the-art kitchen, and spacious bedrooms. When you’re wandering through our inviting, energy-efficient homes, consider putting your finishing touches into a space that can become whatever you want for you and your family.

It’s time to meet your new basement.

The Hallmark Advantage

A lot of builders offer options when it comes to the design of your new home, but few pursue customization with the same gusto as Hallmark Homes Group. From adding rooms to moving walls, Hallmark will do whatever you need to ensure that you get your dream home.

Hallmark applies that free-flowing ethos to every room in your home. Change the flooring, the trim, paint color, appliances, and any of a number of luxurious options carefully chosen to let you build the home of your dreams.

Apart from the rest of the house, the basement is an area that is indeed a blank slate. That’s why Hallmark Homes Group provides so many customizable options for finishing your basement. It’s time to get creative and turn your basement into an epicenter for family activity.

Play Room

Anyone who’s working on building a family, understands that no matter their interests, kids need a place to explore, enjoy, learn, and — most of all — spread out. Turn your basement into a place where your children can do just that.

Add a desk for studies, a kid-sized couch, and TV so they can have an entertainment space all their own, and leave plenty of wide-open space for your kids to run, jump, and get out some of that excess energy.

Exercise Room

Keep the whole family healthy and fit with a dedicated workout space. Invest in an elliptical machine, a set of weights, or any of several options that will keep your family moving without having to leave the house.

Hang a wall-to-ceiling mirror (or two), add some motivational posters to get your blood pumping, and you’ll have turned yournew Montgomery County homebasement into a truly enviable personal gym.

Game Room

Whether your gaming passion is air hockey, pinball, old school arcade games, billiards, or a tantalizing combination, a basement game room can be the perfect place to show off your competitive side.

Imagine walls lined with old video game posters or playbills for famous rock concerts. Throw in a few overstuffed chairs or a comfy couch for those people waiting their turn (or simply spectating), and you’ve got a bona fide recipe for fun.

Dark Room

Access your visual side with a little bit of help from your very own dark room. Anyone can snap a quick photo on a cell phone, but real art (and the best memories) are captured on old-fashioned film. With a little bit of work, your basement can be turned into a combination development studio/gallery in a breeze.

In addition to a small room for developing and hanging your works of art, imagine eggshell white walls lined with your own stunning work in all shapes and sizes. Some comfortable sofas, a bookcase, or perhaps a chess set can turn your at-home photo gallery into a serene space for the whole family.

Home Theater

There’s no need to pay huge sums, stand in line, and then crowd in next to a stranger when you can turn one of Hallmark’s new Montgomery County homesinto the most inviting theater in town.

Exchange stiff theater seats for a couple of luxurious chairs, install a movie-style popcorn popper, add a built-in surround sound system and a knob to dim the lights. The sky is the limit when it comes to building your dream basement.

Hobby Shop

Thinking of learning to paint? Want to try your hand at craft brewing? Have you always wanted to try woodworking? There’s nothing to motivate you into sticking with a new hobby like a dedicated space in your home.

Your personal hobby shop doesn’t need to look like a professional studio, either. Novice artists and craftspeople can hang finished products on the wall. Amateur brewers can find neon signs to line the walls, and it’s never a bad idea to include a home bar for sampling sessions.

Library

Have you spent a lifetime accruing a vast collection of cherished books? Line the basement walls of your new Montgomery County homewith all your most treasured publications. There’s bound to be more than enough space to showcase your current collection and build into the future.

You can fill the rest of the space with prime lounging furniture or maybe a few desks to help a bright, young mind study for the next big exam.

You Don’t Have to Choose

There’s no need to commit to just one look for your finished basement. Our team of experts at Hallmark Homes Group is happy to work with you from square one to turn your basement into a place where your family can truly thrive.

If you are itching to get started on finding your dream home, join us this month during our spring sales event and choose from any of Hallmark’s fabulous communities to receive an included finished basement! You deserve to love every single inch of your new home. Visit the Hallmark Homes Group website today and let’s get to work building your future.

New Homes Enable Savings and Conservation through Energy Certified Features

Categories: Hallmark Homes Group, New Homes in Bucks County, New Homes in Montgomery County | Posted: February 15, 2019

Energy efficiency is a growing concern among homebuyers — inspiring quality builders to build homes that conserve power, save money and benefit the environment.

If you are interested in a residential property that is designed to reduce utility costs, enhance personal comfort and contribute to sustainability — consider one of the many new Hallmark homes in Bucks County and Montgomery County.

This establish homebuilder has recently achieved a new level of excellence — every newly-built homes in these communities will be Energy Star Certified. This means that these homes can save you up to 30% on monthly bills — allowing you to add up your savings while cutting down on greenhouse gas emissions.

Going Beyond Efficiency

An Energy Star Certified Hallmark home meets or exceeds the efficiency requirements established by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Every energy-based facet of construction including thermal enclosure, insulation, temperature control, water management, lighting fixtures and household appliances are verified to be in compliance by an independent testing agency.

Now, you can move into a new home in Bucks Countyor Montgomery County that has been meticulously constructed and professionally verified to provide the best in comfortable cost-effective living.

Eliminate Air Loss

The thermal enclosure of a home is the overall airtightness of every window, door and fitting that is connected to the outside air. Together, the integrity of how these components are installed preserves the indoor climate regardless of outdoor temperature. During the various stages of construction in an energy efficient house, specific methods are used to achieve an airtight structure.

Segments of ductwork for heating and cooling are installed with faultless connections, while entry points for electrical and plumbing conduit are sealed tight. Plus, high-performance windows and doors are properly anchored and set with caulking. These specialized features have built-in thermal breaks which keep the temperature outside from being conducted to the building’s interior.

Get Third Party Verification

Once the sheetrock is hung onto the framing studs and painted over, it is difficult for a buyer to determine whether or not that wall contains the proper level of insulation. An Energy Star home is inspected during construction to ensure this, and tested upon finishing to confirm.

This dynamic is achieved with partnership with an independent Home Energy Rater. Hallmark is building new homes in Bucks County and Montgomery County that are tested and verified by Energy Star. In addition to walls, this step also monitors and verifies proper insulation in floor-based power outlets, arm-level light switches and electrical junction boxes.

Breathe Clean Air

The quality of indoor air in a home is determined by the caliber of heating and air conditioning units installed by the builder. Air conditioners and furnaces draw in air from outside, treat it accordingly and distribute it throughout a structure via ductwork.

High-efficiency heating and cooling units use advanced filters to remove elements such as dust, pollen, allergens and other pollutants before sending the air throughout the home.

These modern systems are highly efficient and feature reduced levels of noise and energy use while maintaining premium performance with extended warranty coverage. Energy Star tests, rates and approves top brands that are manufactured specifically for efficiency.

Then, these units are properly installed by trained HVAC (Heating Ventilation Air Conditioning) professionals according to best practices established by leading equipment manufacturers. The result is clean, refreshing air that is affordably maintained at optimum temperatures at all times.

Avoid Moisture Damage

An integral component of an energy efficient home is a comprehensive water protection system. Not only can water damage be caused by outdoor elements such as rain, snow and irrigation — it can also occur from within the house from poorly insulated plumbing pipes and improperly installed water heaters.

All new homes in Bucks County and Montgomery County built by Hallmark feature top moisture damage prevention ratings from Energy Star.

  • Protect from Within

This energy efficient step in the building process offers the peace of mind that comes from knowing that precipitation stays outside, and when it goes from the roofing shingles to the downspouts and finally into the yard, seepage is avoided into the below-ground walls or the foundation — because they have been treated with damp-proof coating.

  • Take Preventive Measures

As plumbing is being installed, each phase of the process includes inspections from an Energy Star professional to ensure that all couplings and plumbing fixtures are securely in place. To prevent broken pipes from freezing temperatures, all conduit below ground and in contact with exterior walls are checked for proper insulation.

Also, a state-of-the-art water heater with modern energy saving features will be approved and tested once installed.

Save Money on Lighting and Appliances

Efficiency-approved fixtures, bulbs and appliances offer immediate value through modern appeal and superior performance. These features also offer long-term benefits by requiring less energy to operate which translates to a reduced carbon footprint and greater savings on monthly bills.

You can customize your new home in Bucks Countywith elegance and style by choosing lights and appliances that speak to your personal sense of design.

  • Flip the Switch

Efficiency certified fixtures and bulbs use up to 90 percent less energy than their traditional counterparts. These components can last 15 times longer than incandescent models while emitting the same amount of light from units that are hum-free.

  • Get More, Use Less

Modernizing your home with Energy Star approved refrigerators, dishwashers, ceiling fans and laundry units allows you to enjoy appliances that outperform older models while reducing energy use by up to 50 percent.

Join the Modern Age

Houses designed to use less energy while providing a superior living experience are the choice for people looking to benefit the environment and save money. Contact us to learn more about moving into a newly customized, Energy Star Certified home.
