Enjoy the Best of Outdoor Living in a New Shea Home

by Shea Homes Arizona on February 17, 2017

 

It’s February in Arizona! While much of the country is buried under snow, we’re gearing up for some fun in the sun. When you live in a state that has some of the best weather in the country (most of the year, anyway), it makes perfect sense to choose a home designed to take full advantage of outdoor living. Here are a few of the latest popular new home features that let homeowners enjoy Arizona living to the fullest.

Courtyards
CourtyardsCourtyards add expanded living space, give your family more room to spread out, and provide multiple entertaining spaces for kids and adults. With the right furniture, a fireplace and maybe a stocked bar, you’ll find plenty of reasons to enjoy the great outdoors year-round.

Casitas, Ramadas and Cabanas
Casitas, Ramadas, CabanasIf you like to entertain, casitas, ramadas and cabanas are great ways to transform your backyard into the ideal party spot. Throw in a flat-screen TV or two, and you can alternate between watching the big game and cooling off with a dip in the pool.

2017 New Year’s Resolutions for Your Home

by Shea Homes Arizona on January 13, 2017

New Year's Resolutions for Your HomeNow that the chaos of the holidays is over, many of us are hungry for change and a fresh start. A new year is the perfect place to implement new habits & routines to live the life you have always wanted and to reach the goals that you have set. These new habits usually include healthy eating and more exercise, but we would argue that home improvement and care is just as important (your home is where you do most of your living after all!). As you take a look at the coming year with a fresh set of eyes, here are a few New Year’s resolutions for your home: 

Remove Excess

Put your house on a diet by getting rid of the junk! Schedule a day to take a good, hard look at all of the things you own, recall the last time you used them, the likelihood that you will use them within the next six months and the value that they bring to your life and your home. If you find items that haven’t been used in ages, that you aren’t likely to use in the near future and that don’t serve a specific purpose in your life or home, put them in a pile and let them go. This practice is simple, yet life-changing when you experience the mental space that is cleared up by simply decluttering.
