Jagoe Homes is a Proud Sponsor of the 2018 Evansville HydroFest & GP-20 Hydroplane
Evansville HydroFest will Roar on the River again this Labor Day weekend on the Ohio Riverfront in Downtown Evansville, Indiana. Jagoe Homes is a proud sponsor of the event, where it will host the American Power Boat Association’s Eastern Divisional Championships for 14 classes of Inboard Boats during the 3-day event, Friday, August 31st – Sunday, September 2nd.
In addition to being a sponsor in 2018, Jagoe Homes was also a sponsor in Evansville HydroFest’s inaugural year in 2017. The event attracted a total of 53 teams in 10 different classes, including 1 Litre Y Hydroplanes, National Modified Hydroplanes NMH, and Grand Prix Hydroplanes GP. Hurricane Harvey caused inclement weather and river conditions requiring many adjustments to the racing schedule, but the fans and race teams unanimously declared the event a great success. For 2018, a comparable number of teams are expected from throughout North American including Canada.
Admission cost for Evansville HydroFest is $10 total for the 2 days of racing. 12 and under are free. The wristbands are still on sale at all six Schnucks Evansville/Newburgh locations, and additional sales locations at the Evansville Museum and SWIRCA.
2 PM – 5 :20 PM – Championship Heats for All Classes
6 PM – River Open
We are also very proud sponsors of the Gp-20 Blown Income Racing Team! The GP-20 is owned by retired United States Navy officer, Larry Linn of Olympia, Washington-based Blown Income Racing, and is driven by Ed “Bobble Ed” Preston.

Paul DiGiorgio Masterfully Designs Homearama – Jagoe Homes Architecture and Planning
Many 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.
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.

Their Grand Opening Weekend will be October 18th – 20th, 2018!
Well, no offense to HBAK, but we think that Lindsey broke the mold for a sales manager. Lindsey brings a fresh look on management, while still technically learning how to be a leader. When she took on this position within Jagoe Homes, she knew that she was going to have to forge her own path. She, along with her soon-to-be husband, Brent Vorst, who is in charge of Jagoe Homes’ Land Acquisitions, took the plunge and moved to Louisville in the Summer of 2016.
Currently, we have a Model Home in Glenmary Commons, a garden home community located off of Bardstown Road that offers maintenance-free living at its finest. Soon we will also add another community, Brook Stone Estates to the Louisville market. Of course, Jagoe Homes also offers the option to build your new home where you want.
This year will be Jagoe Homes’ first year in Homerama, in Catalpa Farms, where we will be featuring one our our new Luxury Home plans. This annual tour takes you through dream homes in one of the city’s newest developments, carefully planned to provide the feel of living with nature while enjoying the latest in home design and technology.
The HBAK articles goes on to explain that Lindsey, “is among the fourth generation of her family to work for the company. She grew up immersed in home building, hanging out on job sites, and sketching out floor plans. She’s also lived in several Jagoe-built homes.” Lindsey has her bachelor’s degree from Transylvania University in Lexington, and went on to get her masters degree in Urban Planning from UCLA.
Lindsey and Brent will admit to you that they enjoyed their time in California. However, they unanimously agree that it was not their favorite place to live. They found their way back home to Kentucky. “In Los Angeles, she saw the impact a lot of affordable housing can have firsthand. She’s since watched the problem spread across the country. ‘That is something that drove me back to Jagoe [Homes],’ she said. ‘We build in a lot of different price points, and many of our customers are first-time home buyers. I think it’s important to provide that first home for people to start investing… I definitely had a lot of idealistic dreams about urban planning, and I have been trying to figure out how to mesh those with the real-world realities of sales and marketing.'”
Let me just tell you, from a true insiders perspective of Lindsey, she’s a truly remarkable person. She’s kind, and hopeful and her laugh is simply contagious – and this is just to coworkers and family! Imagine how she is to a complete stranger! The term “over and beyond” envelopes her drive for success and happiness, not necessarily for herself, but for those complete strangers that show up at her model home, eager to purchase a new Jagoe home for themselves.
That’s probably why Lindsey and her team are seeing such success in Glenmary Commons. Everyone they encounter, whether they purchase a home or not, at the very least leaves with a smile. Hopefully, you’re the next one to have the pleasure of meeting Lindsey Jagoe.

A View from the Top of Downtown Living – a True Resident’s Perspective
There’s nothing quite like living in Downtown Owensboro. It’s everything that I love – the people, the hustle and bustle, the parks, the events, the nightlife and the restaurants. It’s a beautiful thing to be able to walk twenty feet to your front door after having a few at the local watering hole after work. Life is just simpler walking to church or your friends house or, in the most ideal circumstance, even your job. Who doesn’t need that little bit of extra exercise on a warm, sunny day on a stroll down by the river or playing with your children at the park? That’s probably why I couldn’t imagine myself living outside of this downtown setting.
City and country living are not as opposite as you think. In fact, I believe Downtown Owensboro blends the best of both worlds. What do you envision when you think of quaint suburban life? Pleasant neighborhood parks almost always come to mind. For some, this contrasts with their vision of city life as living in a concrete jungle. Owensboro is home to the world-renowned Smothers Park on the riverfront, which displays a couple infamous concrete trees that actually double as a handicapped access bridge on the playground. There is something for everyone to do downtown – take a look around the next time you’re there!
You can also get a bit of country tranquility from living and working at higher altitudes. Downtown Owensboro is vibrant and offers continuous action and movement. While most of the time this is exciting and enjoyable, we all seek a retreat to spend time alone or in a quiet place. Taller buildings allow you to rise above the din – literally, taking solace in a home above the street level.
If you do happen to find yourself becoming a city dweller, try to remember how enticing your downtown home is for friends and family to visit. Rather than lamenting another trip to the sleepy suburbs, those closest to you can’t wait to come back! Once they arrive, you’ll have endless opportunities to show them new corners of the Owensboro you love. From aforementioned parks to the famed International Bluegrass Museum and unique shopping experiences, the downtown life puts you in the heart of it all.
Sure, I enjoy the weekend getaway to the country side or the lake just as much as anyone else, but it’s the excitement of Downtown Owensboro that I like to call home. It’s here that I walk my dog, I take my nieces and nephews to play at the park, I walk to dinner with my family, I entertain business associates at the restaurant around the corner, I visit with friends on the riverfront and often just visit with myself and my labrador as I watch the barges tug by.
I have a lot of skeptics who ask me why in the world I would want to live in Downtown Owensboro, and maybe I can’t convince everyone, but I have certainly convinced many who are tired of mowing their front yard. I have friends that visit from Nashville and Lexington and the like. I take them onto our rooftop during the Air Show to watch the jets fly overhead, and their eyes widen. I take them down to Friday After 5 for free summer concerts, and they dance. I make them stand in line for twenty minutes to get a chicken that’s been barbecued for five hours at BBQ Fest, and they get back in line for more. “I like it here,” they say.
No offense to my big-city buddies, but the reason they like it in Downtown Owensboro so much is because they get a more intimate taste of what they experience in their own city every day. You get to live in a downtown setting without the traffic or the crime or anxious feeling of getting somewhere that’s really close quickly and safely. There’s your feel-good feeling you were looking for. Now you feel home in downtown.
Now you too can experience what I love so much about Downtown Owensboro: Where Everything Happens! At Parkside 100, Jagoe Homes brings our reputation from award-winning design, experience, and quality homes to this historic elegant setting. Located at 100 Allen Street, the condominium suites offer beautiful architectural features such as wood-clad windows, hardwood floors, high ceilings, and a spacious, open-concept layout that’s perfect for any family. Modern features also adorn the homes with gourmet kitchens, embellished with beautiful granite countertops, travertine backslashes, custom cabinetry and premier luxury appliances.
Move Up to the Luxury Suites at Parkside 100 and Enjoy Carefree Living in Downtown Owensboro!
