Not one to get comfortable with the status quo, Shea Homes is continually looking at new ways to meet the diverse needs of new homebuyers. Recently, Shea developed a one-of-its-kind floor plan concept, Shea3D™, and is proud to be breaking ground for these homes in the new community of Colliers Hill in Erie, Colorado. Visit this weekend to meet community representatives, learn all about life at Colliers Hill, and discover which of these Shea3D™ homes is the perfect fit for you.
Shea3D™: Dream, Design & Dwell
Priced from the $300s, Shea3D™ homes offer a new kind of versatility in homebuilding. Homebuyers are unique and what may be good home design for one buyer may not fit the needs of another. Shea is looking to remedy that with more options – options that fit how different families live. Each Shea3D™ plan, YourPlan™, has three distinctive main-floor lifestyle options from which to choose: entertainment, outdoor and kitchen. While each plan has a well-appointed cook with eat bar, open dine, and cozy watch, these spaces are arranged differently to create the lifestyle options of a flexible layout for entertaining, a layout that promotes a complete indoor-outdoor living experience, and a layout with a centralized kitchen.
The seven homes, including a ranch, in the two Shea3D™ series range in size from 1,925 to 2,835 square feet and offer two to five sleeps, plays, works, unfinished basements and 2-3 car parks. Contributing to the versatility of these lifestyle-oriented homes are additional room options allowing buyers to have the living spaces they desire most. Architecturally, these plans have beautifully designed traditional exteriors as well as interiors that incorporate sleek contemporary finishes. [read more…]

Hints of spring are in the air, what else is? Your home tends to experience a bit more traffic in the winter, and with that increased traffic comes more dust, dirt, and other allergens. You want to start spring fresh, so it’s time to clean the air in your home. Here are a few tips on how to do just that:
Deep clean your furniture:
-Couch cushions most likely only get removed when you’re on a search for a fallen remote, or a swallowed cell phone; but try giving these crevices a deep clean. Remove all your couch cushions and vacuum. Really get in there, try to reach every crevice, nook, and cranny. This will help to eliminate accumulated dust and dirt, plus who knows what hidden treasures you might find along the way.
-Take your cushion covers off and wash them according to the tags directions. If you have a leather sofa use a leather cleaning solution to get rid of any build up.
-Lift up your furniture, we know…the couch is heavy, but in our mission to eliminate dirt and dust this step is crucial. The spaces underneath furniture may be harboring dust and dirt fugitives, don’t let them linger.
