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.

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.

When you’re planning a home for both you and your pets, consider their particular needs. Think about whether you’re putting your door-dashing dog on a high-traffic street. Will your protective pup go postal on guests? How can you make your multi-story home comfortable for your elderly dog? What common household items are hazardous to pets and not humans?

Mudrooms – What Are They? 7 Elements of a Family Entry

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.

family entryHooks & Racks

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.


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.

family entryCubbies

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.


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.

family entryThe Laundry Room

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.


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.

family entryHard Surface Flooring

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.


Let the Light into Your Home

Lighting in your home can brighten or damper your mood according to room, natural light, windows and doors, and types of indoor and outdoor lighting. Let the light into your home with these simple tips!

Whether it is subtle or not, lighting makes a huge difference to any living space. It can take a room from dull and drab to bright and cheery, or it can add just enough softness to create a calm atmosphere. Lighting does more than add function to a room; it affects your mood. Have you ever noticed that when it has been rainy for a few days, your mood suffers? Then, on sunny days you tend to be more cheerful and energetic? This same concept translates to the home, where the lighting in each room can affect your mood.

The good news is, knowing that different kinds of lighting can help boost your spirits or unwind after a long day, there are things you can do with the right lighting equipment and lighting fixtures in each room to create a positive atmosphere in your home.

The Family Room

large-30-20160513The living room is where you gather as a family, where you visit with guests and where you enjoy entertainment. For many people, this is one of the most-used rooms in the home, so the lighting here is important.

You likely want a cheery yet homey atmosphere in your living room. A strong ceiling light and accent lights like floor lamps, smaller lamps and wall sconces can accomplish this. Keep in mind that there may be areas in your living room, like art, shelves or bookcases that you want to highlight, so these spaces may require recessed lighting that can be directed to highlight special features. If you watch television or like to kick back and relax in your living room, install lights with dimmers so you can adjust the brightness according to what is happening in the room.

Accent Wall Tips & Tricks

An accent wall can be a perfect way to break up a large room, to emphasize a particularly great architectural feature, or to instill a sense of the extraordinary in an otherwise completely ordinary space.  You want this space to generate a sense of personality to make a room and its features truly POP!  As an accent to a space, an accent wall provides an immediate draw. Choosing a wall that’s furthest from the room’s entrance to be the accent wall can be an unspoken invitation to “come in and make yourself comfortable.”

Homeowner Use & Maintenance Guidelines for Landscaping Your Sod Lawn

When it comes to getting a thick, healthy lawn, nothing beats grass sod for instant gratification.  It may cost more, and even double that if you would like someone else to install it, but lay it down right, and in a couple of weeks you have got a dense, well-established lawn that is naturally resistant to weeds, diseases, and pest infestations.  Sod is also very convenient because it may be installed in any season, weather permitting.
