Pebblebrooke Update: New Homes Galore


The Pebblebrooke neighborhood is developing right before our eyes. Here is what we have now and what is coming soon.

Today we are standing outside in Southwest Omaha in the Pebblebrooke subdivision, and it is really neat to see so many developed lots going up. Phase one of Pebblebrooke has about 75 lots with a number of homes being built, and phase two will have even more lots, around 120.


Pebblebrooke already has 75 lots, with another 120 coming in phase two.




If you are looking for a new home in Southwest Omaha, we would love for you to take a look at some of our model homes here in Pebblebrooke or in Arbor View. If you have any questions for us or want to book a showing, please feel free to give us a call or send us an email anytime. We look forward to hearing from you soon.

A Quick Preview of Our New Durham Model Home in Pebblebrook



Today we want to give you a sneak peek of our new Durham model home in Pebblebrook. Over the years, we’ve made a number of changes to the Durham floor plan, some of which you have probably seen. We plan on opening this home during the second week of June, and we invite you to come out to Pebblebrook to take a look at it then. In the meantime, to get a quick preview, watch our latest video.

How Do the Linear Fireplaces in Our Homes Work?


We’ve got some great tips for you today if you own one of our homes with a linear fireplace. Here’s a full demonstration of how everything works.

We’re back once again to talk about one of the great features in our homes: our linear fireplaces. We’ve got some tips and techniques for you to help keep things warm and safe in your home. With all of our brand-new fireplaces, we recommend a six- to eight-hour burn off period. After that, you'll want to disassemble the fireplace and clean the outer glass cover. To open the fireplace, you just lift up on the screen. There are tabs on each side that you can pull on to get the screen off. After the screen is off, you’ll want to unscrew the four pins in the frame of the fireplace and take that out. After the frame is out, you can clean that sooty glass. We recommend setting an old towel down underneath the frame and using an ammonia-free glass cleaner. If there is any soot buildup that you weren’t able to remove right away, a glass-top cooking cleaner works really well. Once the glass is clean, you simply lower it into the frame. Once it’s secure and sealed, pull those spring-loaded latches back. Then you can put the frame back in and re-insert the screws you took out earlier. You’ll notice that on the outside of the frame, there’s a battery pack velcroed underneath. In case of a power outage, you can use the batteries to ignite the fireplace. If the power is on, however, it’s a good idea to remove the batteries.


The gas shutoff valve is actually located in the utility room.




Finally, all you have to do is slide the glass cover back on the fireplace and flip the switch on the wall. You might see a bit of condensation, but it should go away in a few minutes. The gas shutoff for this unit isn’t located on the fireplace itself. It’s actually located downstairs in the utility room. It should be labeled “fireplace.” If the valve is straight up and down, it’s on. If you want to shut it off, simply turn the valve 90 degrees. If you have any questions for us about our fireplaces, your fireplace, or the features of our homes in general, don’t hesitate to give us a call or send us an email. We look forward to hearing from you soon.
