Everyone wants to live in the home of his or her dreams, which leads many to have a home built for them rather than buying one that already exists. While going this route is exciting and allows you to make your family’s dreams a reality, it’s best to take first things first — before the builder even starts on the foundation, you need to decide on a home plan.
The weather is warmer, the flowers are in full bloom and you can hear Kenny Chesney singing “summertime is finally here” from your neighbor’s back porch — ah, sweet summertime. Now it’s time to grab your towels and sunscreen and head to the LakeHouse, the newest amenity at RiverLights, to relax and soak up the Southern sun.
If you’ve ever been to the beach, chances are you’ve spent some time digging or looking for seashells and shark teeth. Did you know there’s actually a name for what you’re doing? It’s called beachcombing. Beachcombing is the act of searching the sand for nautical treasures. It’s a popular pastime for beach fanatics, so if you have a hunt that yields few treasures, you’re in luck, the tides change all day, sweeping the sand with new goodies to be discovered.
For the 31st time since its creation in 1986, the Wilmington-Cape Fear Home Builders Association (WCFHBA) will be showcasing 84 of the area’s finest homes in the annual Parade of Homes. Builder members of the WCFHBA compete year after year for the titles of gold, silver, and bronze in their respective category. Homes are categorized based on price range and are judged based on interior and exterior features, quality of materials, and craftsmanship.
