New Year Real Estate Trends

At Pringle Creek Community, we think in the long-term by focusing on our core values around nature, community, and innovation. Forbes writes about real estate forecast trends for 2018, and these trends we've been doing for years. You might call us experts. The first is that people are moving toward more Co-Living and Community Driven Spaces. We have Pringle Creek Designs like attached homes for co-living as well as capability to build ADUs (Accessory Dwelling Units).

Perfect

What does it mean to have a perfect home anyway? Well, some might say that custom building is about as close as you can come to getting your perfect home.

ICF Explained

At Pringle Creek Community, we are all about providing sustainable and innovative home options. When it comes to building, we’d like to re-introduce you to ICF. ICF stands for insulated concrete forms. It’s composed of concrete, expanded polystyrene (EPS), and metal support structures to secure the inside. When you see a home made out of ICF being constructed, it almost looks like a gigantic Lego project! What is EPS anyway? It almost sounds and looks like styrofoam, but it’s not!  EPS doesn’t release CFCs (chlorofluorocarbons) into the air, and can be re-used multiple times. You might remember hearing about the ...
