Jagoe Farmhouse Style

Farmhouse Style – Is It for YOU?

The Jagoe Homes Design Team created brand new, modern Farmhouse elevations for our homeowners in 2019 & 2020! This is one style we can’t seem to get enough of lately.

  • The modern Farmhouse style is popular simply because it is nostalgic. Many of us have warm memories of our time on the family farm, while others of us wish we had a family farm to visit. This style harkens back to the simplicity of country living, which out having to give up any of the modern features, comfort or styles we’ve come to love!
  • Essentially, it is a perfect blend of both worlds. It’s part contemporary, part modern, part industrial, and part traditional. The architectural elements are decor things like white woodwork, board and batten siding and black industrial elements.
  • There is no one right way to do this style, and that is one reason why it is so appealing.
  • Farmhouse style is versatile. It can mix well with other  home styles, so it can easily be incorporated into existing neighborhoods.
  • These elevations offer clean lines, crisp exteriors with decorative vinyl and stone accents, drawing on that simple, elegant look.

Standard or Craftsman | Jagoe Homes

Standard or Craftsman – Which is the best Jagoe Home style for you?

Many of our new customers want to know the difference between a Standard Jagoe Home and a Craftsman Jagoe Home.

Our Online Advisor Team’s most frequently asked question on this topic is – what is the difference in the price? Allow our V.P. of Architecture, Paul DiGiorgio, to elaborate…

  • 9′ ceilings are included in all Craftsman plans.
  • Craftsman ceilings are all flat, while the Standard ceilings have vaulted or cathedral ceilings.
  • Staggered kitchen cabinets are also included in all Craftsman plans. This allows for much taller cabinets, and therefore much more cabinet space. Some homeowners prefer straight-lay cabinets to the staggered, or the increasingly popular 42″ wall cabinets, which are only available with the 9′ ceilings.
  • Windows in a Standard Jagoe Home come with the classic 3′ x 5′ with traditional grill pattern. Craftsman windows have a 4-lite grill pattern and are much larger in size.
  • The exterior of the Standard vs the Craftsman is probably the most obvious difference. Standard exteriors are mostly brick and monotone. Craftsman exteriors offer diversity with a pleasing mixture of siding, brick and stone. Details such as tapered columns and brackets, board and batten and shake siding allow Jagoe Homeowners to play with their own personal style!

A few of our more popular plans offering both styles include the Norwegian, Summit, Cumberland and Patriot. Select a community you would like to build or purchase your new Jagoe Home in, then select the plan and style you desire.

Which do you prefer – Standard or Craftsman?

2020 Trends in Interior Design

2020 Trends in Interior Design – Amelia Laster, AKBD

The 2020 International Builders Show (IBS) allowed Jagoe Homes’ Design & Merchandising Manager, Amelia Laster, AKBD, to zero in on 2020 trends. With new Model Homes coming soon, Amelia got an exclusive look on new and fresh ideas in home design.

Amelia’s Top 5, 2020 Trends from IBS:
  • Mixing Neutrals: “It’s not just about gray anymore.” Amelia claims, “you’ll see warmer neutrals mixed with gray.” Neutrals are a calming and easy way to decorate any room. You should choose EITHER a warm or a cool tone, but not both. Warm undertones will be slightly green or yellow, while cool undertones will be a bit pink or blue. Many of our homeowners choose Light French Gray by Sherwin Williams for their interior paint. For a pleasing neutral exterior, many homeowners go with Driftwood or Country Beige by Exterior Portfolio.
    2020 trends
  • Biophilia: Let the outside in! The biophilia hypothesis suggests that humans possess an innate tendency to seek connections with nature and other forms of life. Thus, with this 2020 trend, “we will see a lot more plants and organic movement in accent pieces,” says Amelia. Being on top of this trend could be as simple as bringing in a couple house plants, growing your own herbs in your kitchen or selecting a more tropical wallpaper. There are many plants that love the shade, such as ivy, venus fly traps or cacti.
    2020 trends
  • Wallpaper: “We are still seeing a lot of geometric design in wallpapers, but florals are increasing in popularity,” states Amelia on this 2020 Trend. Peel and stick wallpaper is a favorite of hers to use. It’s easy to apply and looks fantastic! Some floral wallpaper may have a larger design, while others are more dainty. Some may be more bold with color, while others are neutral. Wallpaper can be fun and inviting when used correctly and in the right spaces. Target has many options to choose from when you are ready to choose a peel and stick wallpaper.
    2020 trends3
  • Patterned Backsplashes: Amelia saw SEVERAL of these on the IBS Show Floor! These patterns can be geometric, organic or a stamped pattern. A simple herringbone can be accomplished with subway tile, or a busier mosaic tile can liven up a space. Some tile may be as elegant and simple as a hexagonal, white tile. Backsplashes that also incorporate some mirror aspects give them a special depth, like this one from Daltile.
    2020 trends
  • Earth Tones: “But not necessarily brown… ” Amelia clarifies. “Blues, greens and clay colors are really popular right now, and can create interesting, earthy tones.” Even deep reds and tans can bring instant coziness to a room, while cool blues and grays can be reminiscent of the outdoors, making a soothing atmosphere. Pairing these earth tones with a neutral creates a wonderful palette. Oranges and greens together also create a more modern feel because of the striking juxtaposition. The Sherwin Williams 2020 Color Mix Palette reflects these earth tones perfectly! Amelia used some tones from this palette in our 2018 Homearama home in Louisville, KY, which you can see in the photo of the living room below. Take a Virtual Tour of our 2018 Homearama home!

2019 Jagoe Homes Year in Review

2019 Jagoe Homes Year in Review

We had an explosive year at Jagoe Homes in 2019 and are expecting even more from 2020. We want to share with you what we believe are huge successes, accomplishments and milestones that we met as a home builder. We have overcome obstacles, found areas to develop and strengthen, and established priorities.

What brings us the most joy year in and year out, is the fact that we are able to build new Jagoe Homes for families in Louisville, Western Kentucky and Southern Indiana. From families visiting our Model Homes or setting appointments for a first-time visit, and for each step throughout their journey to new home ownership, for all of us at Jagoe Homes, this is a humbling and wonderful experience.

We appreciate our employees who work day in and day out to help Jagoe Homes reach goals to make our company the best it can possibly be. We also want to thank the realtor community, our preferred lender, FBC Mortgage, trade partners and affiliates.

Jagoe Homes introduced a new, interactive Design Tool!

Our future homeowners can now Design their new Jagoe Home using our Interactive Online Design Tool! We were very excited to give our customers a way to visualize what their new Jagoe Home will look like once the exterior is completed. Additionally, it allows them to click on features of a home that are not included in the base home plan. For example, if a customer wanted to add a fireplace, covered patio or drop zone in the family entry, this is easily visualized by clicking through the options that are available for that home plan. Start designing your new Jagoe Home online!

 

Jagoe Homes is awarded with the Foundation Builder Award and the Platinum Builder Award from 2-10 Home Buyers Warranty!

Jagoe Homes attended the International Builders Show in Las Vegas.

The International Builders Show (IBS) is a world-wind for Jagoe Homes employees. This year we were able to take all upper management and the marketing team. IBS is an important part of our year. We find extreme value in the education it provides from our industry’s top-ranking trainers and professionals, and the elaborate showcasing of new products from our vendors. This is where we met with Rendering House, the company that powers our new Interactive Design Tool!

We opened 10 New Communities & New Sections of Existing Communities.

With the closing of The Vinings Subdivision in Bowling Green, Kentucky, Jagoe Homes opened its new community, Magnolia Hills! At the Grand Release Event, we sold eight home sites to now Jagoe Homeowners. Magnolia Hills was a cool project for our Design & merchandising Manager, Amelia Laster, because she was able to Reuse & Redesign with a lot of the furniture from The Vinings!

We also opened Brook Stone Estates in Jeffersontown, Kentucky! This is a unique Jagoe Homes community in Louisville because it’s in the heart of J-Town and offers 1-Story & 2-Story homes with Basement options. We have sold several home sites in Brook Stones Estates with many remaining for other families in J-Town!

At the end of September, we hosted the Blevins Farm Grand Release Event, where 4 home sites were sold! The occasion launched home site sales for our newest community in Bowling Green, Kentucky. Blevins Farm, which features single-family homes, is located in the Three Springs Road Corridor. The new community reflects the beauty of T.J. and Georgia Blevins’ famed Hackney bred horses.  With home sites selling briskly at the well-attended Grand Release Event, the community’s remaining home sites will sell out soon!

Lastly on the brand, new communities front, we opened Lone Oak Village! Residents of Highview enjoy the balanced lifestyle the area offers: a peaceful community just minutes from all the exciting activities of Louisville. Highview itself is host to its own array of excellent shopping, dining, schools, and more! Jagoe Homes is proud to bring you Lone Oak Village, our newest Louisville community you’ll love to call home.

We also opened several new sections of existing communities…

Jagoe Homes participated and sponsored in community events!

2019 brought on another amazing year at Friday After 5 in Owensboro! Friday After 5 is Where the Weekend Begins! We enjoyed every Friday during the 16-week, free concert series on the Jagoe Homes Patio Stage at the RiverPark Center for family fun in Owensboro, Kentucky! This award-winning, summer-long festival celebrated its 23rd season with more than 60 bands and added another new event and venue to the Friday night party series.

We are BIG Bluegrass lovers, so we also enjoyed another year of sponsorship at ROMP! ROMP is a 4-day music festival celebrating the roots and branches of Bluegrass music. Hosted by the Bluegrass Music Museum & Hall of Fame, ROMP is held annually in Yellow Creek Park in Owensboro, Kentucky.

Jagoe Homes also participated in the 2019 Gaslight Festival in historic J-Town! The Gaslight Festival, presented by The Chamber Jeffersontown, brings an estimated 200,000 visitors to Jeffersontown every year. The festival now hosts a motorcycle rally, car show, golf scramble, 5K, parade, balloon glow, children’s playground, live entertainment and over 200 arts, crafts and commercial booths.

Of course, Jagoe Homes participated in Parade of Homes!

We kicked off 2019 withe the Spring Tour of Homes in Evansville & Newburgh. Sometime after that in May, we were a part of the Tour of New Homes, which is a free event that features new construction homes and new home communities throughout the Louisville area.

The main events for Parade of Homes occurs in June. Evansville & Newburgh kick off parade season with Chefs on Parade – a really neat event in which each of the seven participating Parade of Homes entries are paired with a local Chef who prepares their fine cuisine at a parade home! We opened SIX Jagoe Homes during the 2019 SIBA Parade of Homes!

Shortly after, we opened seven Jagoe Homes in the 2019 Owensboro Parade of Homes, presented by the Home Builders Association of Owensboro (HBAO)!

The Bowling Green Parade of Homes occurs a little later in September, and is presented by the Builders Association of South Central Kentucky. We opened two Jagoe Model Homes for this tour, including our brand-new Model Home in Magnolia Hills!

To close off the year, the Fall Tour of Homes in Owensboro and Evansville & Newburgh occurred at the end of October. Both parades were hosted on the same weekend. We opened several Jagoe Homes for the public to tour in the Homebuilders Association of Owensboro‘s Fall Tour and the SIBA Fall Tour of Homes.

We took home several awards in 2019!

In addition to the 2-10 Home Buyers Warranty awards, we also received…

We had an amazing first year with our Preferred Lender,  FBC Mortgage!

As our preferred lender, FBC Mortgage helped us to welcome many new Jagoe Homeowners in 2019! This is a wonderful partnership that we are excited to continue in 2020. Contact FBC Mortgage to get prequalified today, and in the meantime, read up on preparing your credit and down payment assistance.

2019 jagoe homes

We are looking forward to another FANTASTIC year at Jagoe Homes in 2020! Cheers to 2019!
