Questions to Ask Your Builder

Categories: Buying a New Home, Home Buying | Posted: June 20, 2018

McGuinn-Ask Builder
Building a new home is exciting, especially when you partner with the right homebuilder. If you’ve never had to make this choice, here are some questions to ask your builder.

How long does it take to build a home?

The answer will depend on the builder’s ability to navigate such issues as weather conditions and efficiency with the construction team. Discuss the entire homebuilding process and determine roughly how long each step will take once you choose the lot and homesite.

Will you build on my lot?

Some homebuilders only work with land in their communities. If you own land or have property in mind, it’s important to find a builder who is willing and able to build there. McGuinn Homes welcomes the opportunity to build your home, your way, on your lot.

Are you licensed and insured?

Don’t even consider a builder who lacks either the correct licensing or insurance. Without having proof of both, you risk working with someone who doesn’t follow safe and ethical practices.

Do I need to secure a construction loan?

Ask any prospective builder about financing a new construction home before you make a commitment. McGuinn Homes works with lenders who understand the process of building a home. Once you are pre-approved for the total cost of the home (including the lot), you only need to provide earnest money (a deposit) to start the construction. When the home is completed, the remainder will be handled through your mortgage at closing.

Will you use the plans I provide?

Using someone else’s plans is a risky proposition for a builder. There may be issues with the plans that aren’t immediately apparent, which means you’re responsible for the cost of fixing any problems that arise from faulty plans. Choose from the builder’s selection of plans and discuss the changes you’d like—making sure they are doable and within your budget—before proceeding with the purchase.

Do you guarantee your work?

A reputable builder offers a warranty on the structure, so ask for a copy of the builder’s warranty. McGuinn Homes, for example, offers a one-year warranty from the date of closing. We do a detailed walk-through with you to make sure you’re satisfied before taking ownership. If necessary, we make warranty repairs after 30 days and 90 days, and then at 11 months, before the warranty expires. Our tradespeople (electrical, mechanical, HVAC) also guarantee their work, and all appliances, flooring, and systems are covered by the manufacturer’s warranty.

How often do I get construction updates? And can I visit the site while my home is being built?

You will have a McGuinn Homes representative who provides weekly progress reports and is available to answer your questions. You can visit the worksite but, for your safety and our schedule, we ask that you call in advance and arrange a time so that our crew can stay on task.

What kind of energy efficient features do you include?

Energy efficiency adds lasting value to your home, so be sure your builder is knowledgeable on the processes and materials, and includes them in your home. McGuinn is proud to share our eco-friendly approach to building a home that conserves energy, provides a comfortable environment, and saves you money.

The Best Lakes in the Columbia Area

Categories: Columbia, Lake Murray, SC, Uncategorized | Posted: June 12, 2018

McGuinn Homes-Columbia lakes
Get ready for a lake escape. With summer temperatures here, there’s nothing like a trip to the waterfront to cool off. If you live in our region (or one of our McGuinn Homes communities), you have plenty of choices. Just pick a direction and head to one of the best lakes in the Columbia area for swimming, fishing, boating, or your water sport of choice.

Lake Murray

Like Columbia itself, Lake Murray is situated in the heart of South Carolina. This 48,000-acre, man-made lake earned the nickname of “The Jewel of South Carolina”. As one of the best fishing spots near Columbia, Lake Murray is a gem for catching largemouth bass and striped bass (Bassmasters holds its annual tournament here). This lake has also produced the state record-holders for white perch, white catfish, white crappie, and white bass.

Want more than fishing? Lake Murray is surrounded with beaches, parks, campgrounds, and recreation areas. Whether you own a boat or rent one at the lake, you can set sail from one of the marinas or many boat launches. With 620 miles of shoreline, you’ll also discover an endless variety of dining, shopping, entertainment, and attractions to occupy your time here. Come for a day or plan to stay awhile.

Lake Wateree

Formed almost a century ago, Lake Wateree is one of the oldest man-made reservoirs in South Carolina. The lake is located about 30 miles northeast of Columbia and consists of 13,000 acres. You’ll discover great bass fishing here, among others, but the area is also home to a wide variety of wildlife, including a bird refuge. You can experience every type of water sport here, plus find your perfect camping spot—right on the lake or a bit more secluded. Lake Wateree State Park provides 13,800 acres of outdoor fun, including hiking trails to get closer to nature.

Lakeside Living in a McGuinn Homes Community

There’s no better way to get the most enjoyment from the best lakes in the Columbia area than to live here. McGuinn Homes builds energy-efficient homes and townhomes in scenic locations throughout this region, including our lakefront communities of Crystal Cove, Forty Love, Harbor Watch, Pintail Point, Spence Plantation, Sterling Lake, and Centennial at Lake Carolina. If you have your own property, we can build on your lot. Are you ready to move now? Look at our selection of move-in ready homes.

Getting Your Outdoor Space Ready for Summer

Categories: Homeowner tips | Posted: June 5, 2018

Outdoor space for summerMemorial Day weekend kicked off the unofficial start of summer. The official date is coming fast, along with the end of the school year. If you have kids, they’ll have more time to spend in the yard, and you’re probably planning some outdoor entertaining while the weather is sunny and inviting. McGuinn Homes has some tips for getting your outdoor space ready for summer.

Start with a really good outdoor clean-up. Approach your outdoor décor the same as you would for your interior decorating. You can’t design a room that doesn’t present a clean canvas. If you haven’t already raked up the yard and garden beds, start now. Pick up any debris. Remove dead foliage from the gardens. Gather up all the yard art, pots, and lawn furniture, and scrub them.

Get colorful. There’s nothing as inviting in an outdoor space as vibrant colors. Your furniture, flowers, pots, and décor should present a summer palette—from coastal coolness to tropical brights. Invest in new pillows and cushions to perk up your outdoor furniture. Add an outdoor area rug to pull it all together. You can also purchase Adirondack chairs in a full spectrum of colors for lawn seating.

Make your gardens portable. Container gardens let you enjoy the natural beauty and color of summer plants wherever you’d like. Large or small, these gardens fill in lonely areas and brighten up your deck, front porch, and patio. Be sure to choose plants that will thrive in the amount of sunlight where you’ll place the garden. And get creative with the containers. Repurpose an old wheelbarrow with a fresh coat of paint and fill it with your favorite summer flowers. Line the drawers of a chest or dresser with plastic, add holes for drainage, and you have a unique container garden!

Define your yard with a pergola. These structures provide the framework for an open-air living space. Perfect for an outdoor kitchen or seating area (or both), a pergola adds definition, and with so many choices of materials, you can go for any look you want—rustic, natural, or contemporary. Place a canopy on top and string lights so you can enjoy this relaxing outdoor living space day or night, and in just about any weather.

Install a water feature. The flowing water adds life to your outdoor space. A waterfall, fountain, or pond can be as simple or complex as you’d like.

Don’t forget the porch. The front of your home creates the first impression for your guests. Give it a summer makeover with new décor. Pressure wash the porch and walkway. Apply a fresh coat of paint to the front door. Place one of your creative container gardens by the entrance.

As a local homebuilder, McGuinn Homess loves summers in the Columbia, South Carolina, area—where endless choices for outdoor recreation are so close. We build ccommunities of energy-efficient, new townhomes and single-family homes, as well as building on your lot. Explore the many lifestyle options we present and browse our current selection of move-in ready, new construction homes and townhomes.

Have a safe and happy summer! We hope to see you soon.

Advantages of the Townhouse Lifestyle

Categories: Columbia, Energy Efficient | Posted: May 22, 2018

perks of townhome living

Owning a home should provide more gratification and satisfaction than obligation. McGuinn Homes believes your home should fit you and your lifestyle perfectly. When it doesn’t, you need to think about making a change. For people who are thinking of downsizing from a single-family home or upsizing from a condo or rental, the advantages of the townhouse lifestyle are worth a look.

The spaciousness you’re used to.

A townhome provides two (or more) levels of living space. You still enjoy the comfort that comes with having a full-sized kitchen, living area and bedrooms, with spacious closets and spa-like bathrooms. You can choose a townhome with the bedrooms upstairs or a first-floor master suite, a great option for aging in place.

The privacy you want.

With a townhome, you have no upstairs neighbors—a distinct advantage for people who want more privacy than a condo can offer. McGuinn Homes designs and builds our townhomes to afford the solitude of living in a single-family home, including a fully fenced-in backyard.

The safety and security you need.

In a townhome community, you’ll get to know your neighbors. You’ll see them coming and going, meet up at the clubhouse or pool, or chat with them as you’re taking a walk around the neighborhood. This familiarity presents a sense of safety and security, knowing that others are keeping an eye on the community activity. When someone is ill or needs help, you can count on someone close by to pitch in. If you need to be gone for a period of time, it’s easy to find a friendly neighbor who can check in on your home, water the plants, and make sure nothing suspicious is left unnoticed.

Without the maintenance you don’t want.

Owning a home comes with chores like exterior maintenance—taking care of the lawn and landscape, cleaning out the gutters, repairing roof shingles, and painting the exterior. Wouldn’t it be nice to leave that responsibility to someone else? With a townhome, you own the land your home is on, but your exterior maintenance is included in your monthly HOA fee. You don’t need to spend your valuable time on these chores or maintain and store the mower and tools to handle it all.

And some really great ways to spend your free time.

Townhome communities are more than a collection of homes. You will likely have common areas that enhance the neighborhood, like a swimming pool, fitness center, and playground. Hampton Forest’s clubhouse also includes a poolside cabana, outdoor fireplace, and a 16-seat theater room with a surround-sound, wide-screen television.

At McGuinn Homes, we build homes for people at every stage of their life. Our energy-efficient townhomes at Hampton Forest in Columbia, South Carolina, are a popular choice for everyone from working professionals, first-time homeowners, and young families to empty nesters and active adults. We currently have new townhomes for sale at Hampton Forest, so contact McGuinn Homes to begin exploring the advantages of owning a townhome.

How to Reduce Your Energy Bills

Categories: Energy Efficient | Posted: May 9, 2018

cutting home energy costs

Saving energy isn’t a new “trend”. Homeowners have been focused on cutting energy costs for a long time, but environmental concerns have pushed it to an even bigger priority. Your home should also make an effort to contribute to the cause. McGuinn Homesenergy efficient homes are providing more energy-saving advantages to our homeowners. If you’re wondering how to reduce your energy bills, here are some of the tips we’ve found very useful.

Sweat the small stuff. Did you know that a 60-watt incandescent bulb uses about $2.20 in electricity per month, when used daily? Compare that to an LED bulb, which costs about 14 cents per month. Multiply those costs by the number of bulbs in your home. Even though LED bulbs are more expensive, they last longer and the energy savings will give you a solid return on your investment.

Purge the phantom. Did you know that many electrical appliances and electronics use energy even when they’re turned off? It’s called phantom power (also known as standby power and idle current). Your coffeemaker, printer, toaster, and phone or computer charger are still devouring energy when you’re not using them. This phantom energy accounts for about 10% of your total annual energy consumption. Your inkjet printer uses more than half as much energy when it’s turned off as when it’s on. A DVR uses about the same amount of energy as long as it’s plugged in, whether it’s on or not. If a power cord has a little black box, that’s a transformer that is always hungry for energy. Unplug the cords of anything not in use and check your electric bill after a month.

Get smarter with your technology. A smart thermostat lets you control the temperature in your home, even when you’re not there. By reducing the temperature even a few degrees while you’re sleeping or away, you can gain significant energy savings.

Stop wasting water. This is an obvious one, but still overlooked. The average household uses about 90 gallons of water daily. Most of it is flushed down the toilet and used in the shower. A low-flow toilet cuts the water usage almost in half, saving an average of 13,000 gallons of water per year. A water-saving showerhead saves even more. An ENERGY STAR dishwasher uses an average of 6 gallons per use, while a non-ENERGY STAR dishwasher uses about 16 gallons.

Switch to tankless. Your home’s water heater spends about three hours a day heating up the water for your household use. Even if you’re not running the water, the heater is still keeping your water warm. A tankless water heater doesn’t store water. It heats your water when you need it, giving you a steady flow of warm or hot water. If you’ve ever tried to fill a soaking tub with warm water, only to get halfway before you run out, you will appreciate the value of this on-demand, tankless water heater solution.

Give yourself a STAR. Major appliances, like your refrigerator, clothes washer, and dryer, account for a hefty portion of your monthly electric bill. When you invest in an ENERGY STAR product, you’ll see the estimated annual savings right on the tag. These appliances don’t compromise performance to reduce energy. They’re just smarter.

McGuinn Homes designs and builds every single-family home with the latest environmentally friendly technology, materials, methods, and products. Take a look at our “green features” and our energy-efficient homes and communities through the Columbia, South Carolina, area. Then talk to us to move to a home that’s as committed to energy savings as you are.

Creating an Easy Space for Outdoor Hosting

Categories: Homeowner tips | Posted: April 24, 2018

hosting guests outside

Look out your window to your backyard. Can you envision the fun you’re going to have there now that the beautiful South Carolina spring is here? Or are you just seeing a lot of work to do? Creating an easy space for outdoor hosting expands your living space and broadens your opportunities for family fun. McGuinn Homes has a lot of experience building new homes and communities throughout the Columbia area, and we’re happy to share some tips for converting your backyard into an exterior “room.”

 

Create a Floor Plan

Just like the interior of your home, your outdoor living space should be mapped out, creating zones for various activities. Consider it the ultimate in the open floor plan!

Your patio, of course, provides the foundation, but it doesn’t have to end there. If you have a small patio, don’t feel limited by this space. Your lawn is your carpet and by defining spaces here, just as you did in the open concept in your main living area, you bring order, function, and design to your outdoor living space.

 

Design Your Outdoor Kitchen

Consider where you will put your outdoor kitchen, making sure it’s convenient to the back door. Even if your outdoor kitchen is fully equipped with cooking, refrigeration, and storage, you’ll likely go back and forth as you prepare and serve meals outside.

Your outdoor kitchen could be as simple as a grill or a larger space that’s as well-equipped as the kitchen inside your home. Incorporate a pizza oven, warming drawer, refrigerator, ice machine, sink, bar, island, and more. Add a durable countertop, like granite or quartz, and weather-proof cabinets. The more functions you add to your outdoor kitchen, the more time you can spend enjoying the activity outside.

 

Place a Pergola

Nothing defines an outdoor living space like a pergola. This structure of open beams creates boundaries and can be as large or cozy as you want. It’s ideal for a conversation area or space for your outdoor kitchen and dining. You can add a canopy for some protection from the elements. Finish it with lighting and décor to create a pergola as a truly inviting space for outdoor hosting.

 

Add Fire and Water

Whether you want to add warmth or the relaxing sensation of flowing water, consider adding a fire and water feature to your backyard living area. A fire pit with seating is a welcome place on a cool night. Or add a wood-burning fireplace to your patio and outdoor kitchen area. The water feature could be a fountain or cascading waterfall in your yard, accented with garden plants. You might want to add a koi pond for a tranquil accent.

Make these water and fire features as large or small as you’d like, as accents or focal points in your outdoor living space.

 

Please, Fence Me In

The family pets enjoy a free run outside, which is made safer when you have a fence. Fencing in your yard is also a smart idea for protecting your children and enhancing your privacy. You have a wide range of fence styles, so you can choose the one that blends well with the architecture of your home.

 

Your backyard can be a valuable part of your home if you invest in creating welcome spaces there. But if your yard and your home simply aren’t presenting the right fit for you and your family, look at McGuinn Homes. We build energy-efficient, single-family homes in communities with resort-style amenities in the most desirable neighborhoods around Columbia. Whether you’re considering a ranch-style home or two stories, we offer a broad variety of floor plans. Talk to us about personalizing a new home design for you, and let’s explore the choices in our communities or building on your land.

Anyone who lives in the Columbia, South Carolina, area knows the many benefits of making your home here. McGuinn Homes has been building energy-efficient homes and communities around Columbia for more than 30 years. We’ve seen the growth—and been part of it by providing quality homes and neighborhoods to people relocating to Columbia. Our communities offer a variety of choices, like lakeside living, cozy villas or executive homes, and resort-style amenities so you can feel like you’re on vacation all year ‘round. We’ve recently expanded our portfolio of new home designs, so grab a first look at our new floor plans now available in various McGuinn Homes communities.

We created the Maybank townhome to provide homeowners with the spaciousness of a single-family home and the low maintenance of a condo. This affordable, 1,200 square-foot floor plan combines the ease of an open floor plan on the main floor, with two, comfortably sized bedrooms on the second. The architecture reflects the popular Craftsman style, with eye-catching details that boost the curb appeal.

We’ve also added the Aiken to other McGuinn Homes’ communities, Forty Love (in Chapin) and Harbour Watch (Leesville). The Aiken presents 2,917 square feet of living space and eye-catching curb appeal. The flexible floor plan can incorporate three to five bedrooms and 2.5 to 3.5 baths. No matter which option you choose, the interior layout features an open concept, ample storage space, and a flex room.

The Cleveland floor plan is now available in Panorama Point (Lexington), Forty Love, and Spence Plantation (Lexington). This spacious luxury home boasts more than 3,100 square feet, with options for four or five bedrooms. The design offers a first-floor owner’s suite, flex room, and formal dining room, in addition to the expansive open floor plan.

The portfolio of floor plans for Harbour Watch has expanded, too. In addition to the Aiken, Harbour Watch homebuyers can now choose the Sharpton, Windstone, and Wilshire.

The Sharpton reflects the “right-size” lifestyle, blending style and luxury with the smart use of space. The 2,342 square-foot ranch is designed with three or four bedrooms, up to 3.5 baths, and a large kitchen in the open living area.

We added the Windstone to Harbour Watch because it’s the perfect complement to this community. The three-bedroom ranch offers a variety of options to personalize it for your needs and style preferences, like adding a second-floor bonus suite, enlarging the first-floor owner’s suite, or expanding the two-car garage.

The two-story Wilshire at Harbour Watch makes a distinctive first impression that carries on from the façade through the interior. McGuinn Homes has included either 4 or 5 bedrooms (your choice) and 3.5 baths in 2,835 square feet, as well as a first-floor office and second-floor loft.
