The celebration will include fun festivities for residents and prospective homebuyers such as live entertainment, food, and tours of AV Homes’ eight beautifully decorated model homes.
Visitors can check out the innovative, energy-saving model homes that feature Energy Star appliances, tankless water heater options, air sealing and gas service at range and dryer locations, LED lighting, blow-in blanket system insulation, and Environments for Living certification, which guarantees low-fixed costs for year-round heating and cooling.
