Add a Little Fall to your New Home

It’s time to kiss the summer weather goodbye and say hello to the brisk air and gorgeous colors of autumn.

If you’re looking to extend your porch-sitting season a bit longer or spice up your welcome mat for guests at your new home, keep reading for some fun, easy ideas to decorate your stoop, porch, or garden this fall.

• Add color! Simple pops of autumn color make for a great touch. Pick up some seasonally-perfect mums for a container or a throw pillow for an outdoor chair or couch. Looking for a creative way to showcase the flowers? Try placing them inside of a red vintage wagon.

• Layer with haystacks, crates, and baskets and add cornstalks and tall urn garden containers for height.

• Decorate with pumpkins, gourds, pinecones, and scarecrows. Mixing and matching pumpkins of all shapes, sizes, and colors add a nice rustic feel.

• Carving your address or street number into one of the pumpkins on your stoop brings a personalized and clever extra.

• Have an outdoor table? Top it with a bowl full of pinecones, leaves, pumpkins, apples, or whichever fall favorites you’d like. Ornamental cabbage or flowering kale also make for a nice centerpiece.

• An autumn wreath on your front door and a seasonally-perfect welcome mat offer a warm greeting to family and guests.

• Keep a blanket handy. If you’re someone who plans to enjoy this season on your front stoop or on a piece of outdoor furniture, you’ll want that homemade quilt or something cozy nice and close.

Our New Community: Channahon – Historical Beginnings – “The Meeting of the Waters”

woods-of-aux-sable-entry
Woods of Aux Sable entry

Channahon, Illinois is a village located in the Grundy and Will counties with a population of 12,700. It is located at the convergence of the Des Plaines and Kankakee rivers, where they form the Illinois River. The Illinois and Michigan Canal (including several locks) run through most of the village, where it is fed by the water of the DuPage River.

 

 

Originally, the Potawatomie Indians inhabited this area naming it Channanon which means “meeting of the waters”.

 

In 1962, the area was incorporated as the village of Channahon.  Major development began in the 1970’s as the village’s proximity to interstate highways resulted in industrial growth with numerous refineries and production plants.  The industrial growth was followed by many support businesses such as freight hauling companies and residential development.

 

Area Interests:

  • Channahon Park District offers an array of opportunities for recreation and self-development.
  • The Arrowhead Community Center offers racquetball courts, a fitness center and a pre-school program.
  • The Tomahawk Aquatic Center features a six-lane pool connected to a zero-depth edge pool and a spray/play area for small children, a sand volleyball court and a concession area.
  • Channahon State Park is a monument to the Illinois and Michigan Canal Locks and Dam and the head of the I & M Canal State Trail.  In addition to picturesque scenery, the park features bike and hiking trails, fishing and picnic areas.

 

Core Homes is now building homes in the Woods of Aux Sable community in Channahon.  For information on these homes call 815-439-9000 or visit our website at homesbycore.com and learn how we can make your dream of home ownership come true.
