Spring is Closer than you Think
It may not be time to get out the garden tools just yet, but this past weekend’s weather gave Grand Rapids homeowners a taste, or a tease, of the spring weather to come. Even though the comfortable temperatures and light winds hid any evidence that we are only half-way through the West Michigan winter, it’s not that unrealistic to start planning for spring.
If you are thinking about building a new home in 2018, it’s a great time to start getting a look around the Eastbrook Homes communities and the available plots in each. With so little snow on the ground, it’s possible to walk the sidewalks, and even the lots, in each community and get a feel for the neighborhood.
The Eastbrook Homes team would also love the opportunity to show you what we can do for you. Come to one of our events and let us give you a tour, or just sit and chat about the available designs and options we have to match your plans. If the weather continues its current trends you might even be able to sit on the back porch and talk over coffee.
If you are a homeowner who has already purchased from Eastbrook Homes, it’s almost time to start thinking about spring cleaning, gardening, and maintenance. West Michigan’s winter storms have been known to throw a curveball, or maybe a snowball, into the mix before February’s done but winter will be over before you know it.
As we get closer to spring, keep an eye out for some maintenance and other suggestions here on the Eastbrook Homes blog. We’d like to share some Springtime tips and tricks, such as remembering to turn your humidifier back up as the cold, dry air moves out for the season. To prevent damage from the moisture that can form on the inside of your windows in the cold weather you may have turned your humidifier down as low as 10 percent. As warm air moves back in it’s best to return the setting to the 35 to 40 percent range as recommended in your homeowner’s guide.
There are other things to consider too, such as getting your sprinkler system in shape and uncovering the plants and trees in your landscaping. Please check back for information on these items and more as the ice begins to melt. Please contact us at Eastbrook Homes if you wish to discuss the construction of your new home, or if you have questions about your new Eastbrook Homes construction.
Either way, we’d love to help you get ready for spring!
