While you tour our homes, keep in mind…

All Jagoe Homes are built Energy Smart, meaning that they help save the environment and SAVE MONEY!  Having a home that is energy efficient eliminates drafty doors and windows, along with poor insulation and inefficient heating and cooling systems, which ultimately leads to energy loss.  We work closely with RESNET (Residential Energy Services Network) to achieve high ratings from the organization.  The lower a home scores on RESNET’s HERS (Home Energy Rating) Index, the more energy efficient the home is.  A standard new home that is built to meet the current Energy Conservation Code will score a HERS Index rating of 100, while our new Jagoe homes score an average of 64.

My Personal Jagoe Home Story: Week 17

My Personal Jagoe Home Story: Week 17

MY HOME IS COMPLETE! A member of our Quality Control Team, Daniel, completed my Home Orientation on April 25th in Bluegrass Commons in Owensboro, Kentucky.

At the Home Orientation, a Jagoe Care Representative will conduct a detailed demonstration of the home’s operation and a review of the owner’s maintenance responsibilities and warranties.  The orientation is also another opportunity for Jagoe Homes to confirm with the homeowner that the home has been delivered with all construction work completed and selections installed as requested.  This was my opportunity to identify possible cosmetic defects on cabinets, countertops and other things that are susceptible to damage after closing.  After closing, there is no way to tell if cosmetic damage was caused during the construction process or was the result of damage incurred during the moving process.  Jagoe Homes goal is to complete all items noted at the New Home Orientation prior to close of escrow.  Generally, most are completed before homeowners move in.  If there are any outstanding items when the closing date arrives Jagoe Homes coordinates completion of the work in much the same way a warranty request would be handled.

After I close on my home, my contact for warranty issues is Cheryl, our Customer Service Administrator.

Jagoe Homes commitment to Customer Satisfaction continues after closing by offering a full-time Customer Service and Warranty Department. Service requests can be submitted online, by email at cheryl.judd@jagoehomes.com, or by phone 800-264-4663.

Another important step in the building process that comes before closing is a Blower Door Test.

Simply put, a Blower Door Test is a  fan-and-pressure-based test performed by a certified rater to measure the “leakiness” of a home. Every new Jagoe Home receives a Blower Door Test. It is required for the home to meet the energy code through the performance method.

home story

After the Blower Door Test is completed, the certified rater will submit the results to their Home Energy Rating System (HERS) Provider. The rater then registers the home with RESNET. An energy packet is supplied to the rater, who then delivers it to Jagoe Homes. Then, Jagoe Homes will finally hand off to the homeowner.

This packet has relevant information specific to that home and should be kept with the warranty info. My home received a score of 62. The lower a home scores on RESNET’S HERS (Home Energy Rating) Index, the more energy efficient it is. A standard new home that’s built to meet the current Energy Conservation Code will score a HERS Index of 100. New Energy Smart, Jagoe Homes score an average of 64, making them at least 36 percent more efficient than a standard new home and at least 66 percent more efficient than a used home.

It is highly recommended that all homeowners keep and maintain this packet. The RESNET value may be represented in an appraisal, and positively effect mortgage values and rates in the future. In fact, it is already affecting appraisals and mortgages in some coastal states, and working its way inward. This could help the homeowner when they sell their home in the future, or even refinance when the high performance value is more universally and officially recognized on government documents.

home storyAll Jagoe Homes are backed by a 2-10 Home Buyers Warranty!

With the purchase of your new home, you receive a copy of the structural home warranty contract. The contract explains what is covered as well as a maintenance booklet to give you tips on how to care for your home. In addition, the warranty is fully-transferable, which increases the resale value of your home.

What is covered in the 2-10 Home Buyers Warranty?

  • 10 full years of structural defect coverage for load-bearing components.
  • 2 full years of systems surety coverage against defects in wiring, piping, and ductwork in electrical, plumbing, heating, cooling, ventilating, and mechanical systems.
  • 1 full year of surety coverage against defects in workmanship and materials
It is important to remember to keep your finances in order right before closing.

My lender, which is also Jagoe Homes’ preferred lender, FBC Mortgage, and my loan officer were FANTASTIC at keeping in contact with me. It was hard for me not to go out and purchase furniture (decorating is my favorite), but I resisted temptation before my closing!

Finally, we CLOSED! Now for the big move…

From start to finish, my home took 119 days to build.

My Personal Jagoe Home Story: Week 15

In just two weeks… I’ll be CLOSING on my brand new, Energy Smart Jagoe Home! I can’t believe it! It has really crept up on me! I’ve got around 15 boxes packed up in my apartment at the moment. I’m already planning to take my area rugs to the cleaners for a deep clean, and I even ordered a new one for my owner’s suite from Overstock! That’s the ONLY piece of furniture that I’ve ordered for my new home. I’m very careful not to spend too much before my closing day.

I’ve also been calling around to get quotes for fencing from a few companies. We decided to go with a trusted landscaper who has done a lot of work in Jagoe Homes’ communities over the years, Yellowbanks Lawn & Landscape. In my deeds and restrictions for Bluegrass Commons in Owensboro, it states that my particular home site (one of several, but not all by any means) is required to have a 4′ black iron fence, as opposed to a tall, wooden or vinyl privacy fence.

My loan officer and underwriter from FBC Mortgage have been in more contact with me these past two weeks. This is because they need to do a soft pull from my credit before my closing date to make sure I’ve been in line with my spending habits and that I’ve been keeping up with my other payments and bills. They are also checking to make sure that I’ve applied for home owner’s insurance, which you need just like you do car insurance!

On the construction side… I am getting all of the “bells & whistles” and finishing touches put into my home!

My granite countertops [Precision Stoneworks] finally were installed as well as my sinks! The large, ceramic sink in my kitchen is by Blanco. These types of larger, single-bowl sinks are becoming increasingly popular among Jagoe Home buyers. I ALMOST didn’t go with granite in my owner’s bath. Marble countertops in the bathrooms come standard with the Summit Craftsman plan, but I still used them in my secondary bath to cut back on costs, and I like the white, matte marble with the Umber cabinets [Arisokraft].

As you can see, all of my recessed lighting is also finished! I decided to cap off where my kitchen pendent lighting would normally go. I will purchase those at a later date. My coach lights [Kichler] are also installed on the exterior of my home. My plumbing fixtures were installed the following week. All of my plumbing fixtures are by Delta Faucets – Kitchen: Essa Single Handle Pull Down, #9113 DST in Chrome; Bathrooms: Ashlyn faucets #2564, and Ashlyn tub/shower faucets, #T17764 in Chrome.

All of my doors, trim and walls have been painted [Sherwin Williams in Extra White].

The concrete driveway and the extended patio off of my covered patio was also installed! That’s a true sign that closing day is quickly approaching!

Since the driveway was installed, we finally let our dog, Hank, come check out his new back yard. We have always lived in apartments, so this is the first time he will have his own yard!

A drywall quality inspection was done during Week 15. The final quality inspection and Blower Door Test to insure Energy Efficiency will come right before my Home Orientation!

After those inspections are complete, and all parties are satisfied… it’s time to CLOSE!

It’s been just over two months since Week 1 of my home building process.  Last week, drywall was completed, and the first coat of paint was applied. This week, crews are installing my exterior vinyl, interior floor laminate and interior wood trim and doors. After that, it gets really fun, for me at least, when tile work begins, and my granite countertops are installed in the kitchen and owner’s bath!

So, this is what the interior of the kitchen and living area looked like after the first coat of paint:

Then things got serious. Just a few days later, the floor was installed, the cabinets were finished, AND they even started on my tile shower…

There were some Personalized Options that I really wanted in my home in Owensboro.

I’m obsessed with interior design. It’s so much more than colors and furniture. Amelia Laster, AKBD, Jagoe Homes’ Design & Merchandising Manager, does a fantastic job on our Model Homes! You can view all of our Model Homes on our Pinterest Page and pin ideas to your own board. You can also follow our Design Owensboro Facebook Page for fun polls, ideas and shared content from other design pages. If you’re a more visual person, or enjoy an interactive experience, you can even take Video Tours and Virtual Tours of Jagoe Home plans!

Before I started building this home in Bluegrass Commons, I was set on a gray pallet on the exterior. As you can see, my exterior selections reflect a brown pallet.

I completely changed my mind because I love the brick that I selected [Brampton Brick in Monroe], and when I decided to go with the brown colored mortar, that sealed the deal for me. I love it and think it looks great! As for the interior, I’ve been a fan of stark, white walls since I saw our 2018 Homearama Home. I own a lot of colorful artwork, so the white walls [Sherwin Williams in Extra White] will be a nice background for my paintings. I also decided that I did not want any carpet in my home, so I just went with the wood-look vinyl throughout. The vinyl [ArmorCore in Steel Wool] looks really nice, is easy to replace if damaged and is scratch resistant from my large dog. This is also an area that I chose to SAVE money on options.

Where I chose to spend more money on options was in my kitchen and owner’s bath! I splurged on granite countertops [Precision Stoneworks, 3 cm granite in Uba Tuba], black slate appliances [GE Appliances], subway tile backsplash [Emser Tile in 3″ X 16″ in white with black grout], Blanco kitchen sink, floating shelves and an extended kitchen island where I wanted to add an extra drawer for a trash can. I cannot tell you how excited I am to have a trash can in my island, since my home plan [Summit Craftsman] doesn’t have a large pantry to keep another one in. I also installed quiet-close drawers in the kitchen and owner’s bath and went with a tile shower instead of a tub/shower stall in the owner’s bath, as well as granite countertops and a double bowl vanity. My kitchen is DEFINITELY my favorite room in my home!

Other aspects of my home that I decided to add options such as; double-hung windows [Sun Windows], widened doors in a few areas, extended concrete patio off of the covered patio and extra storage space in the garage with pull-down stairs. Double-hung windows differ from single-hung in that they offer the homeowner the ability to open each sash, rather than just the bottom sash. This allows for better airflow and ventilation. The ability to open and tilt each sash makes cleaning easier, too. The widened, 3′ doors [Masonite, 5 panel] make the seemingly “tight” spaces in the home feel more open, specifically the garage-to-home door, laundry room door, and owner’s suite door.  This will especially be handy when moving in!  The 10′ extra concrete addition will allow more space for outdoor lounging and grilling, and the extra storage space in the garage will be useful for storing Holiday decorations and boxes of old t-shirts that I just didn’t have the heart to give away.
