Shea Homes® was honored with four Houston’s Best PRISM awards on Saturday, October 7th at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in Houston. The highly-coveted PRISM Awards are presented annually to recognize excellence in all areas of the Houston home building industry.

Shea Homes won the following awards:

In addition to these four awards, Shea Homes was also a finalist in twelve additional categories for best product and merchandising. Shea Homes was also one of three builders who were finalists for the overall Grand Award for the Year.

“It is such an honor to receive this recognition from our peers,” said Shea Homes Houston Vice President of Sales and Marketing Amer Syed. “These plans were carefully designed specifically for Houston and we take a lot of time and care in crafting homes that offer great comfort and value to home owners.”

Shea Homes opened operations in Houston in 2014 and while new to the Houston market, is one of the largest privately-owned home builders in the country having closed more than 100,000 homes nationwide. In Houston, Shea Homes is currently building in The Woodlands, Cane Island in Katy, Meridiana in the Pearland area, Vivace at Harmony and Laurel Glen in Spring, and Sienna Plantation in Missouri City.

The Greater Houston Builders Association (GHBA) Houston’s Best PRISM Awards are an annual event designed to recognize excellence within Houston’s homebuilding industry and to support their efforts. This event is directed by the GHBA Sales and Marketing Council, and numerous volunteers from GHBA member companies. There were nearly 1000 formal-attired guests on-hand to celebrate the finalists and winners.

6 Affordable Home Gym Ideas

by Shea Homes on July 18, 2017

By Jesse Silkoff

A home gym may be great for your fitness routine, but it can be a real drain on your wallet. A dumbbell and plate weight set costs between $300 to $1000 alone, plus another $100 or so for a weight bench. Want to add cardio to your workout? Plan on factoring in another $300 to $5000 for a treadmill. However, your body is generally pretty ignorant of your financial situation—and it needs to be worked out regardless of what’s on your bank statement. Having a gym at home makes the whole process that much simpler: no drive to make, no bag to pack, no communal showers to negotiate. Plus, you never have to wait in line for a free treadmill or feel weird about working out in front of strangers!

At-Home Gym

But exercising at home doesn’t need to be a luxury reserved exclusively for those with a lot of expendable cash. With some workout smarts, you can have the whole thing set up in a matter of weeks—without emptying out your kid’s college fund first. Here are some of the best tips we’ve seen from practical-minded fitness addicts for a home workout station that’s affordable enough for almost any financial situation. [read more…]

One Big Secret to Energy Cost Savings

by Shea Homes Arizona on July 7, 2017

Energy Star CertifiedAs a family homebuilder, we strive to be a leader in innovation, customer care and overall, in enhancing lives so that families can wake up and start their days in a safe, comfortable living environment. Throughout the year in the desert, and especially in the summer months as temperatures begin to rise to new heights, comfort comes in the form of cool AC & energy efficient homes that don’t break the bank when the electric bill comes in.

That is why we partner with Energy Star®, a joint program of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy. The program’s mission is to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and other pollutants. They also work to make it easy for consumers to identify and purchase energy-efficient products that offer savings on monthly energy bills—all of this without sacrificing the performance and desired features of the appliances or the comfort of the consumer.

ENERGY STAR certified new homes are said to offer better energy efficiency and performance compared to other homes, making them a better value for today and a better investment for tomorrow.
