Savvy Builders Evolve to Address Changing Needs

CLICK TO OEPN THE DIGITAL ISSUE OF BUILDING SAVVY

Brett and Kara Phillips were a perfect choice to tie into this issue’s theme of industry evolution. Their forward-thinking mentality has opened new doors in a changing world that are synergistic and attention-garnering, serving to promote their locally based homebuilding business, High Street Homes, and expand its notoriety far beyond our locale.

Even when it seems like there is endless demand, builders and remodelers must never lose sight of their need to stay on top of buyer preference and expectations. Both our Focus Section on home exteriors and our Savvy Special Report on homebuyer preferences can provide ideas and inspiration.

Our theme of evolution to address changing needs continues with our Building Savvy Bottom Line article, recapping of how far the fenestration industry has come in terms of thermal insulation, solar heat control, reduced energy costs, advanced structural strength, improved safety, better sound insulation and reduced maintenance. No longer can windows and doors be called the weak link in a building envelope!

We are also honored to feature Larry Cole, whom Beverly first interviewed for a story that published back in 1994, just after the legendary #63 retired from the Dallas Cowboys to focus on his homebuilding industry career. Now as the author of “Living the Dream on America’s Team,” Larry’s recently released book is a memoir of his life both on and off the field.

While we know that many of you enjoy our Savvy Trucks & Toys columns just because you are car buffs, another reason for including this column in a home building industry publication lies in the fact that it is often telling to compare two industries that tend to mirror one another as far as trends
are concerned.
