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.

Core Homes Makes It Easy


Selling and buying a home can be a stressful time. At Core Homes we want to make the process easy for you. We have our own real estate agent, Lynda Baker, who will help you sell your home from the start. Lynda has years of experience and makes the process of selling your home easy and enjoyable. We also offer a list of preferred lenders who we have been working with for over 15 years. Our lenders are extremely familiar with the new home building process and want to make this time as easy as they can for you too.

At Core Homes we love to work closely with our homebuyers to make sure we build them the quality home of their dreams. We understand everything that goes into building a new home and we are here to walk you through the steps.

At our sales office we handle everything from contract to closing. During the building period our homebuyers come in to select all the items we use when building their home, including siding, flooring, countertops, cabinets and more! While your home is under construction we have our superintendent walk you through your home twice. First is our pre-drywall walk, this is to walk through your home in order for you to see the framing, electric, and plumbing before dry wall is installed. Then your final walk happens a week before your home closes. This allows you to walk through your finished house and make sure everything is the way you wanted. At Core Homes we want our homebuyer to be a part of the new home building process. Our sales office is always available to answer your questions.
