Home from the Heart Results


2009 Home from the Heart

The results are in! The Heartville is Associated Designs 2009 Home from the Heart Survey plan. This year ranch-style reigned. Green building features with advanced insulation also topped the list. Great rooms favored over formal living spaces. The desire for fireplaces and woodstoves continue to decline, close to 100% from the results 10 years ago. We appreciate everyone who participated in this annual tradition.

Watch Construction of the Camas House Plan

As mentioned last month, we are privileged to profile the construction of the Camas design. This is the first home for our clients who are really enjoying the process and working with their contractor from Gansen Construction. Each week we post photographs of the progress made on the home plan blog, and the home is going up fast! If you have constructed or are working on completing one of our home plans, we'd love to profile your project as well. Simply email your photographs to blog@associateddesigns.com. Check out the "Completed Home Plans" on the blog. We've featured photos of homes completed by Steven W. Johnson Construction, Inc., Regal Custom Homes, Castro Construction, and we'd love to profile yours too.
