5 Fun Ideas for Your Flex Room

by Shea Homes Arizona on November 2, 2018

 

At Shea Homes® Arizona, our design team spends months, sometimes years, meticulously crafting our homes to tailor each floorplan to specific lifestyles. But no matter how much planning and heart goes into each design, the most important thing is that your home feels uniquely you.

That’s where the flex room comes in.

Flex rooms are designed to be flexible. You might see it on the floorplan labeled ‘flex’, or ‘optional space’, but they all amount to the same thing: your space to do with what you please. This is your chance to create a space that you love to return to, that will wow your guests when you give them a tour.

Here are five of our favorite flex rooms, curated to give you some inspiration for the spaces that will add the perfect pop of personality to your new home.

1. A Hobby Room
Hobby RoomYou can finally have a space dedicated purely to your passion. Whether you are an artist, a fitness enthusiast, or a collector, flex rooms provide a special area in your home that is solely dedicated to your favorite hobby.

2. An Office or Study Area
Home OfficeLet’s face it, no one truly leaves all of their work at the office. By turning a flex space into a home office or library, you will have a place where you can focus when you need to work late to meet a deadline or decide to work from home for the day. When you are not using it, the kids can use the space as a study area!

3. An Entertainment Room
Game RoomTurn your flex room into a space dedicated to having fun! Make your home the perfect place for entertaining by creating your own game table room, or a private movie theater. By having a separate entertainment space, you won’t have to worry about disturbing the rest of the family when you break during a game of table tennis, or when you want to watch an action movie late at night. On top of that, your home will quickly become the gathering place for all your friends!

Eat, Drink, and Be Merry While Raising Funds to End Cancer

by Shea Homes Arizona on October 19, 2018

Shea Homes Road to 50K - Light the Night for LLS Giveback DaysSome people use their illustrious degrees and decades of painstaking research to find a cure for cancer. Others fundraise for cancer care and research through walks and marathons. On three days over the next month, you can join the effort to end cancer just by going out to lunch or dinner with Shea’s “Giveback Days”.

Join Shea Homes® Arizona on our mission to raise $50,000 for Light the Night, all to benefit the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS). This series of fundraisers culminates in powerful, nationwide walks as one million survivors with their family and friends will join together to illuminate what is often the darkest time in a person’s life.

Three different Valley restaurants will host “Giveback Days” over the next month, each donating a portion of the day’s proceeds to the Light the Night fundraiser – so bring friends, family, and colleagues to lunch, dinner, or happy hour, and score some delicious food and drink while raising money for cancer care and research. The Shea team and our partners will be at both Bourbon Jacks and Dos Gringos, injecting extra doses of fun into the atmosphere with free giveaways, 50/50 raffles, and silent auctions – if you’re a sports fan, you absolutely won’t want to miss some of these items up for bid! Or buy a football square for your favorite team, and if you pick the lucky numbers, not only will you be raising money for Light the Night, but you’ll win some dough yourself.

Food, fun, and fundraising for a great cause; what’s not to love?

October 26 – Bourbon Jacks (11 West Boston Street, Chandler, Arizona 85225) Local and family owned Bourbon Jacks Bar and Grill blends traditional country with contemporary appeal, boasting a fresh innovative menu, extensive drink selection with over 200 Bourbons and Whiskies on the menu, and an exciting atmosphere with live country music!

November 2 – Dos Gringos If you’re into tacos, drinks, parties, patios, and having a blast with your friends playing oversized games, this is the spot for you. The menu is filled with a mix of traditional and innovative fare, like the can’t-miss SuperCheesyGooeyChimichanga, which is the tastiest carnitas and jalapeno cream cheese burrito you’ll ever have. Come by, play some games, grab a bite, and fight back against cancer!

Mesa location at 1958 S. Greenfield Rd. Mesa, AZ 85206

Tempe location at 8000 S. Priest Rd. Tempe, AZ 85284

Chandler location at 1361 N. Alma School Rd. Chandler, AZ 85224

November 14 – Rita’s of Chandler (2975 E Ocotillo Rd, Chandler, AZ 85249) The only thing that could make frozen custard any better is eating it for a good cause. Rita’s frozen custard is carefully made in small batches to maximize quality and freshness, making it dangerously delicious. And that’s a good thing! The more you eat, the more you raise, so bring the kids and let loose!

Three days, three fabulous restaurants. Come to one, come to them all – everything you do moves us closer to our $50,000 goal, and could help save the life of one of the 1.3 million Americans afflicted by blood cancer.

Want to go the extra mile? Invite your friends, family, and co-workers to register, fundraise, and walk at the Light the Night event at the Phoenix Municipal Stadium at 5:00 p.m. on November 17. To learn more or to make a donation, visit: http://bit.ly/2KEpePT
