Paul DiGiorgio Masterfully Designs Homearama – Jagoe Homes Architecture and Planning

paul digiorgioMany Jagoe Homes begin as an idea, a dream even, but all Jagoe Homes that were built in the past eight years have started as a blank page on Paul DiGiorgio’s desk. Paul is the in-house architect and the Vice President of Architecture at Jagoe Homes, and has been for just over eight years. When asked how he got started in his career, Paul explains that, “in elementary school I would design houses for fun while my friends were drawing tanks and trucks. By the time I was in sixth grade, I knew I wanted to be an architect.”

Paul DiGiorgio and his team are the masterminds behind our 2018 Homearama home in Fisherville, KY. Paul states that, “this home really required all of our departments in Jagoe Homes to hone in on the criteria presented to us.  Being our first Homearama home, we needed to make sure everything that we put into it was going to be successful. We wanted to be cost-conscious, so we asked ourselves if a buyer would be willing to pay for that every time we introduced a new material or product. As for the design of the home, we started with an analysis of the lot characteristics and features to know where the best views would be so that we could position our home for the best possible outcome. From there we determined who the potential buyer could be and what they would want in their home.”

Ask anyone who works for Jagoe Homes, and they will agree that putting together a project like this truly takes an army. Throughout Paul DiGiorgio’s career, and his 20 plus years of designing for home builders, he has been involved with homes with a wide price range – from homes with the smallest possible footprint and budget, all the way to open-ended budgets that goes well into the millions. For Paul, “listening is the first step to creating thoughtful design that exceeds expectation.”

What is the Architectural Style of this home?

The architectural style of this home is sometimes referred to as Mountain, because it looks rustic with its dark, natural tones and utilizes stone and several Craftsman-inspired elements.

What is your favorite part about this home?

I tend to get passionate about the work I do, so this house has several things that would be my favorite! I really love the porch size and position with its flared stone sides, and how it leads into the upper gable with its window nestled between the roof lines for a quaint sitting area upstairs. Our designer, Jonathan Carter, who masterfully details these plans to be built, has the same favorite feature inside the home. Our attention immediately goes to the dining room where the wood beam ceiling ascends to a high cathedral with lots of windows that frame a fantastic view.

What challenges did you face with this project?

I think the biggest challenge I faced was not really knowing what the other builders would do. When I design a new home, I want to know what our competition is doing and then compare that to what we are doing so I can design something that has unique features for the size and the price. Since this was our first Homearama, we referred back to previous events and thought about how our home should look based on all the great things we’ve seen year after year.

What was your process in designing this home? Can it be replicated?

One of the key things that made me excited to join the Jagoe Homes team was seeing the process we use and the tools to facilitate a good process. These steps were very important to the ownership and were already in place.  We strive to have all of the information online for potential buyers to be able to build their own homes in our communities on an actual lot. Our website and the data we publish makes it very transparent as to what the home would cost and how you can Personalize & Price a Jagoe Home with all the selections in our system.  Even a buyer who wants to build on their own land can see the base price of a home and then customize it using our system to see what everything costs.

paul digiorgio

How is this home built Energy Smart?

The standards that we set for ourselves are much higher then what the standard building code says they have to be. I’ve heard it said that building code is just a passing grade, which could generally be a ’D’ grade. We could never be satisfied with that, nor should our customers.  We have truly put our money where our mouth is by offering incentive programs centered around energy costs because we go to great extents to design and build our homes the best way possible. Making sure the mechanical trades have the best possible layouts for what they need to provide and then using the right products to facilitate those designs are all happening on paper before we even think to offer the home for sale. When all those components come together correctly, like the position and location of the furnace with its duct work, the ability to get lighting where you need it while not interfering with the plumber and HV AC components,  all have to be communicated so the home owner can experience the comfort of living in an Energy Smart home.

What future Jagoe Homes projects are you most excited for?

We are fortunate to always have new developments that we’re getting into, so I’m always excited to see how our product competes and if we need to design something new for our buyers. I’m hoping Homerama leads to custom home buyers wanting to experience what a lifestyle is like in a Jagoe Home. We have tried several different home styles besides Craftsman, Mountain, Tudor and even Victorian, but I’m most looking forward to introducing farmhouse style elevations very soon! After that we could see something more like modern style elevations.

Additional comments from Paul DiGiorgio:

When you see a finished product like our Homearama home, you can bet our team is excited in having put our best effort into it.  From your first impression standing at the curb and then experiencing the plan as you walk through it, to the furnishings and the trendy design touches, an entire team of staff members that comprises every aspect of the home building industry has come together to make it happen.  There’s too many people to list, but our team has been one of the best working experiences I’ve had in this industry. They are passionate professionals who are so good at what they do. It often amazes me at how much we accomplish together, and we are all thankful in being fortunate enough to have the opportunity to participate in Homearama this year.

Amelia Laster Puts the Finishing Touches on Homearama

Amelia Laster Puts the Finishing Touches on Homearama: Our Design and Merchandising Manager Gives Tips & Details on The Jefferson’s Interior Design

Amelia Laster, our Design and Merchandising manager completes the finishing touches on Jagoe Homes’ Homearama entry. The luxurious Jefferson Craftsman home is masterfully designed for family living and ultimate entertaining. You can tour this home at Catalpa Farms, a Conservation Community in Fisherville, Kentucky, located just east of Louisville, Kentucky. The Builder Industry Association of Louisville hosts this annual event to showcase custom built new homes at a single site. Each home is fully-furnished, landscaped and features the latest in building trends, technology and interior design.

While about 30,000 people attend the event each year, some of the most common questions are, “where did you get that table,” or, “how much was that sofa,” or, “where can I find that countertop?” Jagoe Homes’ 2018 Homearama home features a multitude of innovations such as an abundance of oversized windows, a floor to ceiling linear tile Plazmafire fireplace and cathedral ceiling with wood beam detail, just to name a few.

Much of the awe this home radiates comes from its construction, but it’s beautifully capped off by Amelia Laster’s interior design details. “With every Jagoe Model Home, I sit down with our VP of Product, Lindsey Hughes, and we discuss the demographic of our buyer in that area,” Amelia states. “I do research on current interior design trends and then play a matching game and select those trends that will grab the attention of the buyer we are targeting. Not long ago I did a Facebook poll with three different trends and paid attention to the age group and life stage that selected each trend. That helped tremendously because THEY told me what they wanted to see.”

During the process, Amelia says that once I have an interior design scheme in mind, she works with the VP of Product, Lindsey Hughes, and the VP of Architecture, Paul DiGiorgio, to finalize the floor plan, features and color selections based on the overall design scheme. “For example,” Amelia details, “for our Homearama home we wanted to be on trend with an open, modern and airy floor plan featuring an amazing kitchen, entertaining space and an Owner’s Suite that would WOW. Navy has been a strong color for the last few years, and it has stayed on top because of its ability to work in any design. By pairing it with black and white and adding touches of chrome, wood and leather, we were able to make the home feel modern and fresh. The use of tufting and nail head details in the upholstered furniture added traditional touches that bring the design to the transitional side of modern, broadening the appeal.

Amelia on her favorite places to shop: “I’m a Trade Partner with several companies and can purchase at wholesale, so I buy from all over. I do 90% of my shopping online because it aids me in planning out the home. I also use Pinterest to create design boards. I always try to Pin a clickable link that homeowners can purchase through if they see something in one of our homes they would like to have for themselves. If I need some retail therapy, you’ll find me at HomeGoods, TJ Maxx, Target, and Marshalls. With each home, I like to add touches that represent the community, so I’ll seek out local artisans and boutiques to purchase those items.”

IBS 2018: New Products from Our Vendors from the International Builders Show

IBS 2018: New Products from Our Vendors at the International Builders Show in Orlando

The International Builders Show (IBS) is a world-wind for Jagoe Homes employees. With three days of non-stop education, show floor time, and networking, we are excited to share with you some of the new products that several of our vendors debuted at the convention from January 9th – 11th in Orlando, Florida.

Sherwin Williams – Indoor Paint

Sherwin Williams has made color-matching smarter with the ColorSnap Match smart device app, which pairs with a specially-designed ColorSnap Match paint color matching device. IBS attendees saw that the ColorSnap Match use can press the paint color matching device directly against a paint swatch or solid color of any kind to transfer an image of that color directly to the app. The app will precisely identify a Sherwin-Williams paint color, provide a palette of similar colors, or identify a Sherwin-Williams color that closely resembles the color that the device has picked up. With so many similar paint colors, this will be an easy way for all of our home buyers to choose colors with confidence.

Formica – Laminate Countertops

Formica continues to impress us with their innovations in laminate. This is not your grandmother’s countertop! Formica Corporation debuted the Quartz Composite, inspired by the look of traditional quartz, which is a much more expensive countertop material like granite. Created from concrete and recycled glass, Formica’s Quartz Composite patterns include medium to fine-fill background particulates and a blue-gray river-like vein. The composite’s Artisan finish offers a smooth, slightly glossy surface that brings out the details of the pattern. Formica also showed off its Magnetic Laminate – perfect for any kids room, where you can place this product on a wall. This is ideal for communication and display for a strong magnetic effect that can be written on with chalks or special board markers.

Napoleon – Fireplaces

Napoleon launched two new electric fireplaces this year at IBS – Alluravision and CLEARion. CLEARion is the industry’s first see-through electrical fireplace. While some people still prefer a more traditional standard gas fireplace, this is quite an innovation! The 48-inch fireplace fits in a standard wall cavity and can heat both sides of a room separately with different temperatures, and can heat a room that is up to 800 square feet in size. It is all electric, so that means that this product can be installed with no gas lines or vent runs. It can be plugged into the wall or wired directly into an electrical system. Alluravision is a frameless electric fireplace that can be built in or wall mounted without the need for venting. Homeowners can change the speed, color, and display of the flames for added customization.

Kwikset – Door Locks

Kwikset is growing its line of smart locks through partnership with Amazon to work with the new Amazon Key technology. Amazon Key allows Prime members in 37 cities to receive in-home delivery and grant secure home access for guests using the Amazon Cloud Cam and a compatible smart lock. Kwikset offers two of the lock options available when purchasing the system– Kwikset SmartCode 914, a touchpad smart lock, and Kwikset Convert, a smart lock conversion kit that converts standard door hardware in rentals to a smart lock – to work exclusively with the Amazon Key In-Home Kit. Kwikset is also expanding the Kevo line of Bluetooth enabled touch-to-open smart locks with Kevo Contemporary, a new square-shape contemporary style for a modern aesthetic.

LP Building Products – Siding

LP Building Product’s Smartside group is a tall order! The new cedar texture vertical siding comes in lengths of up to 16 by 4 feet and also comes pre-printed. LP also introduced the Perfection shingle, which features cleaner lines and what a company official called a “modern classic look.”

Simpson Strong-Tie – Hurricane Clips

You may be wondering what this is, but Simpson Strong-Tie has made an impressive building innovation that one of our owner’s, Bill Jagoe, was especially excited about. Simpson Strong-Tie’s new Fascia-Fastening Solution is designed to securely fasten composite and PVC fascia boards while providing corrosion resistance. The two-part system consists of stainless steel fascia screws and a counterbore bit, which bores a hole that is wider than the shank of the screw. Designed for use with ½-inch to ¾-inch fascia boards, the Fascia-Fastening Solution accommodates expansion and contraction of installed boards to prevent material failures due to changing environmental conditions.

We are rolling out even MORE innovations for our team in addition to our vendor’s new products for 2018 – Stay Tuned!

Celebrate the Holidays with Jagoe Homes at 4200 during the Owensboro Symphony Tour of Homes

We are opening up our gorgeous Model Home in 4200 to the public during the 2017 Owensboro Symphony Tour of Homes! Each year, the Owensboro Symphony Christmas Tour of Homes showcases some of the region’s most stunning and exclusive homes. On Saturday, December 9th from 10 AM – 2 PM, guests are invited to tour each of these lovely homes. Our 4200 Model Home, which features the Pinot floorplan, was beautifully and personally decorated by our Design and Merchandising Manager, Amelia Laster, AKBD.

  • 4200 2017 owensboro symphony tour of homes owensboro kentucky
Special Thank You to Welborn Floral Company for our Stunning Exterior and Interior Greenery Decor!
Amelia Laster, AKBD, Jagoe Homes Design and Merchandising Manager

Amelia initially decorated our gorgeous 4200 Model with a predominantly black, white, gold, and gray pallet, so she “felt the Christmas decor needed to reflect personality of the home.” Of course, the family tree traditionally belongs in the living room, but how do you decorate a bedroom? Amelia says that, “it’s easy to bring holiday cheer to any bedroom by adding pillows that match your color scheme, filling vases or trays with ornaments and placing them on a nightstand or a dresser, or even replacing a focal piece on the wall with a wreath.”

Lights are sure to bring your home many “cheers”. If the commonly-used string of lights isn’t really your thing, light up the season with a brilliant array of paper luminaries. Line them up along your front walkway, or scatter them on your front porch for a bright, twinkling Christmas display that’s simple and affordable. A holiday wreath can also make a cheery entrance to any home. “A traditional greenery wreath with a simple red bow is absolutely my favorite,” Amelia claims. “I have long needle pine wreaths throughout my home. I’m also a big fan of red berry wreaths with ornament wreaths being a close third.”

As for sticking to a more traditional color palette, Amelia recommends a lot of red and green with touches of black. “This year,” she adds,” I included black and white buffalo check in my decor.” Another traditional pattern is not just for collared shirts – use a plaid theme for your Christmas decorations for an old-school take on holiday cheer. To avoid overloading on one pattern, don’t be afraid the mix and match plaids of varying sizes and scales. Start with a transparent plaid garland, and decorate with metallic, solid-colored ornaments.

 

Tickets are now on sale for the Owensboro Symphony Tour of Homes for $25 online advanced purchase, or at select retail outlets until December 8th. Tickets may also be purchased on the day of the event for $30 at First Presbyterian Church located at 1328 Griffith Avenue from 9:30 AM – 1:30 PM.

Jagoe Homes is proud to install Sun Windows in every home that we build.

Located in Owensboro, Sun Windows, Inc. is the exclusive manufacturer of SunClad™ Wood Windows and Doors and Sun Vinyl Windows. Being locally and family owned and operated, Sun’s history dates back to 1930 when Victor Anderson, Sr. developed a self-storing, wood storm window. In August of 1943 V. E. Anderson Windows and Doors moved to Owensboro, KY from Detroit, occupying the former F. A. Ames building. The first product line produced was the self-storing, wood storm window. Sun has almost 90 years of experience – they know how to build a window!

Sun products are designed to maximize energy-efficiency. The frame and sash materials are designed to combat the harsh effects of the weather so that Sun Windows and Doors will provide protection and energy-efficiency year after year. The insulated glass systems use the latest advances in energy performance technology. This includes new generation Low-E glass, Argon gas filled air spaces, and Duralite™, the most advanced warm-edge insulated glass spacer system available.

Sun products are also designed to prevent air infiltration around the opening sashes and panels when they are closed. This helps prevent energy loss and makes the home more comfortable. Sun products are top quality in the industry, competing with the the major industry brands.

Notable Features with every Sun Window:
  • Family owned with true lifetime warranty
  • Made with “virgin vinyl” – holds over time
  • Four-corner welding – provides a structurally sound window
  • Non-metallic spacer – energy efficient, less conductor of heat
  • Best Argon gas retention
  • Best Low-E glass

The entire Jagoe Homes Sales Team was fortunate enough to tour the Sun Windows factory on May 12th. The team met with John Anderson in Owensboro and was able to see up close and in person how every window is made for every Jagoe Home.

Make Your Home Pet Friendly

Pets are more than just animals. It’s important that homeowners with pets make their home pet friendly.

Our furry, feathered, and finned friends require time, attention, and a home that is just as safe and comfortable as it is for us. Most people don’t think about pets when they are building their new home, not even the pet owners themselves. Over half of all homes have pets living in them, but animals are still an afterthought when it comes to home design and improvements. Here are some things to consider for your pet through the design process.

7 Elements of a Perfect Family Entry – What They Are, and How to Best Utilize Them in Your Home.

Unlike the front entrance to your home, your family entry (formerly known as a mudroom) is your overly-used second entrances that you normally do not want guests to see.  They take a beating.  It’s one of those rooms that older homes do not have, and many of us pine for.  It is a hardworking space.  Even the smallest family entry is helpful and Efficient for keeping your home clean and organized.  Here are seven elements of the perfect family entry.

Coats, hats, scarves, backpacks – they all need somewhere to hang out.  If you do not currently have a family entry in your home, this is a good place to start small.  Try putting in multiple rows of hooks to maximize the usage of your wall space.

Bench

The next most important element of a family entry.  When you come home, what’s the first thing that you do?  You more than likely kick your shoes off.   A bench would allow you to do this with ease, especially with shoes that are harder to get off, like boots.  You can also store the sandals and tennis shoes that you use often underneath.  A boot tray next to it would help to condense the mess as well.

The ultimate family entry feature is a set of open cubbies.  Have one for each member of your family, so that everyone has their own storage space.  High storage would be more for seasonal items, while lower storage would be used for everyday necessities.

Closet

Even though a family entry is sort of like one giant closet, providing a designated closet in the room is great for out-of-season wares, sports equipment, utility storage, cleaning supplies, and miscellaneous items you would rather have out of sight.

Laundry rooms have moved out of the basement and into other more convenient areas of the home.  Adjacent and/or convenient to the family entry creates the perfect place for them.  It makes sense to quickly and easily throw dirty clothes and linens directly into the wash without dirtying up the rest of your home.

Sink

A utility sink is useful for gardening, cleaning up paint and crafts, or other messier duties that you do not want around your beautiful kitchen sink.

Durable and easy-to-clean is the most sensible flooring option for a family entry and laundry room.  Vinyl, hardwood, and tile are great options for the family entry, while vinyl and tile are most ideal for the laundry room.
