Family Carpentry

Colleen Owen, our Urban Farmer,  has done it yet again, she's turned something she found into an absolutely gorgeous addition to the agrihood. It's all about word-of-mouth, having a knack for knowing how to find precious materials that may be destined for the trash heap, skill and creativity. Oh, and her dad, Ralph, also played a major role with his talent in carpentry. Colleen's mom, Connie, was also there to offer support through her cooking skills, running those last minute errands for parts, and her sense of humor. Just a guess, but you're wanting to know what they made! Old ... Read more

Groundbreaking Lot 23

Why is breaking ground so fun? It means that the building is starting and there are so many possibilities! We have just broken ground on Lot 23, John Muir Loop.

Bonus Space

At Pringle Creek Community, there are many options for how to design your custom home. This freedom allows for you to have a den, shop, or flex space rather than a spare bedroom. Some of our residents  have fun with this idea and make spaces more tailored to their lifestyle. If you do mobile work, why not design a space that caters to your work flow? If you love carpentry, why not have an area solely dedicated to that practice? Same goes for a place to relax with friends for a poker night (or Apples to Apples night...). Having ... Read more
