Window Treatments - Why Custom?

Custom window treatments can truly be the finishing touch

to a beautiful room – as well as provide much-needed privacy

and light control. Rather than thinking of window treatments

as something that will ‘cover’ your window, consider how

they will enhance your windows by framing your view to the

outside and providing added texture and color to your space.

In the complex world of custom window coverings, there

are virtually thousands of fabrics and design choices available

to today’s homeowners. Selection of just the right fabric

and style are so important in conveying your design personality.

In addition, quality custom window treatments are

crafted by skilled workrooms. They are luxuriously full, have

weighted hems, will fit your windows perfectly, and perhaps

most important, will be fabricated with the most appropriate

lining. Professional installation by a seasoned pro ensures

that the final product ends up just as it was envisioned. As

always, working together with your professional designer will

help make the process of adding beautiful and functional

window treatments to your home smooth and easy.

WELCOME LETTER

Life starts all over

again when it gets

crisp in the fall.

— F. Scott Fitzgerald

Fall is by far my favorite time of the year. It is the season for all of our

senses. We see a colorful palette of reds, oranges, yellows and browns

all around us. The taste of pumpkin spice finds its way into our coffees,

breads, cookies—even beers. We hear the sound of leaves crunching

under our feet, and we smell wood burning in nearby pits as we wrap

up in our favorite soft blanket.

It’s the season when we squeeze all the outdoor time we can into our

days. We go to football games, we invite family and friends over for an

evening under the stars. So, with company in mind, this issue shows a

way to make your home more inviting by creating a welcoming pathway

leading to the front of your home on page 44.

And if it’s time for a more stylish focal point in your back yard turn to

page 56 for new fire pit ideas. Plus, get inspired with home decor items

celebrating the colors of fall on page 14.

There’s a lot of activity in the fall, and for home and garden enthusiasts,

Dayton will kick off its 2022 Homearama Touring Edition presented

by CenterPoint Energy on Friday, September 9.

As for me this fall, I’ll be spending as many evenings and weekends as

possible making s’mores and memories with my grandchildren.

Thanks for reading.

a perfect

FIT

The sunroom, and much of the home, was designed for easy access to outdoor living.

Bright, open

one-floor living

designed to suit

empty nesters’

lifestyle

BY KAREN BRADNER

PHOTOS BY KELLY ANN PHOTOGRAPHY

So many of us worry about resale when

making decisions about our homes. We

spend, possibly, too much time thinking

about how many bedrooms the next owners

might want, what color selections are

neutral enough, or whether dining rooms

will be in or out when it’s time to sell.

But that wasn’t the case when Rick

and Tonia Donnini built their new home.

The choices they made were based on

exactly what would serve their needs. As

a result, their 3,000-square-foot, twobedroom,

one-floor home reflects their

lifestyle beautifully. ➻

housetrends magazine 2022 19

describes her clients’ style as

“modern, warm, and casual

with a bit of flair.” 2 This liveedge

table and bench work

well in the home’s more

casual eating area. 3 A partial

wall with a two-sided fireplace

provides a subtle separation

between the open great room

area and the sunroom.

20 housetrends.com


WANTING TO SIMPLIFY

The decision to forego a basement

was an easy one for the couple. “We

didn’t care about cheap space, we

wanted simple,” says Rick.

The couple’s previous 6,000-squarefoot

house had a pool outside and a

walkout basement. “After our kids

left, we mainly lived on one floor,”

Tonia says. “We hardly ever went

downstairs—not to use the pool

table, the bar or the theater.”

And as far as the two bedrooms

go…the original floor plans called for

a third bedroom, but the decision was

made to turn that into a sunroom/

sitting area. There is a spacious guest

room with an ensuite bath available

for overnight company. But one of

the couple’s sons, Ryan, lives just a

mile or so away with his wife Kelsey

and their children, three-year-old Ava

and two-year-old Collin. The couple’s

other son, Connor, lives in Atlanta

with his wife Madison, who has family

in the Centerville area, so they have

options when it comes to accommodations.

So, a third bedroom and a basement

are what they didn’t include

in their plans. Here is what they did

include:

Let’s start in the back yard. To

call it a yard is a bit of a misnomer.

While there is a generous strip of

grass back there, an expansive 17-by-

40-foot pool dominates the space.

An outdoor kitchen stands off to

the side, ready to serve up friends

and family and a four-hole putting

green is placed on the other side of a

small slope. Both Rick and Tonia are

avid golfers, and this space is used to

perfect their game as well as introduce

their young grandchildren to the

sport. ➻

If we didn’t light things properly,

you couldn’t really appreciate them.

Out here, a high-tech sound system

which includes nine directional speakers

and a subwoofer was designed

and installed by Troy Hanson and

the team at Hanson Audio Video.

The speakers are positioned so that

neighbors can’t hear the couple’s

music or television. Troy says the

goal of the system is to “cover the

area with extreme saturation to prevent

hot spots or fading.” Speakers

are placed around the pool area so

that the sound cascades toward the

back of the house, rather than having

speakers mounted on the back of the

house and cascading out toward the

neighbors.

“We’ve had friends pull up to the

house for a party and think we weren’t

home,” Rick says. “They couldn’t hear

the music until they made it back to

the pool.”

ONE FLOOR LIVING

While the activity often centers on

the backyard attractions—the pool is

heated and often used from April to

November—the inside of the home is

designed for easy living as well.

“Everything is laid out exactly the

way we wanted it,” Tonia says.

The Donninis worked with interior

designer Diane Hanson to finalize

the layout of the home, the material

selections, and the furnishings.

“Diane is a godsend We have been

working with her for over 30 years,”

Rick says. “She was a great influence.

She helped us filter through our decisions

to integrate them into the overall

design…which ultimately saved us

money.”

One challenge for the designer was

to take a space that was big and open

1

2

24 housetrends.com


and make it inviting. Area rugs, furniture groupings,

artwork and lighting were carefully selected and placed

to create smaller spaces within the larger space. And,

since the main living areas are exposed to each other,

Diane says it was important to select complementary

light fixtures.

“Lighting is a very important part of the process. If a

room is not properly lighted, it doesn’t come off as well

as it could,” she says. “Rick and Tonia have a lot of great

art and beautiful furnishings. If we didn’t light things

properly, you couldn’t really appreciate them.”

TVs, lighting, streaming services, garage doors, music,

locks and much more are controlled via a Control4

System installed by Hanson Audio Video. This system,

Troy says, “controls the entire house with one simple,

kindergarten-level app.” ➻

Luxury vinyl plank flooring handles kitchen spills—and grandchildren’s wet feet—with ease.

INDIVIDUAL TOUCHES

There are a few areas in the home that garnered a bit of

extra attention from certain members of the team. For

example, when it came to the kitchen’s design, Tonia

points to her husband and says, “That’s all him.”

Rick, who is the cook in the family, wanted space to

prep on both sides of the sink. “I’m not walking all across

the kitchen. Everything is within easy reach,” he says. “It’s

a perfect blend of function and design.”

Nearby is a beautiful live-edge elm table handmade by

Ron and Tom Dement of New Life Forestry of Ohio. The

bench has frosted epoxy-filled inclusions in its edges to

add both comfort and style.

Farther along the back of the home stands a half wall

with the see-through fireplace that separates the sunroom

from the main living areas. The wall was Tonia’s

idea and got a stamp of approval from Diane. A large,

walk-in closet off this room houses a collection of toys

for the grandkids. Weekend sleepovers with “TT” and

“Poppy” are a regular occurrence.

“We love having them here. Grandkids are the best,”

Tonia says. “They want to be in the pool all the time.”

And should they need to run from the pool into the

house to grab a snack or use the restroom, luxury vinyl

planking on the floors aren’t bothered by the water.

Other low maintenance, kid-friendly features include

assorted leather chairs, sofas and ottomans the couple

purchased from Bova. “If someone spills something, it

wipes up,” Tonia says. “Bova has amazing furniture that

lasts forever.”

Outside, the plants are all trees, shrubs and perennials,

with no annuals in the bunch. The couple wanted low

maintenance landscaping—there is no mulch anywhere.

26 housetrends.com


TIMING IS EVERYTHING

Fortunately, construction on the

home wrapped up in December of

2019, so the pandemic did not negatively

impact the process. In fact,

the Donninis are incredibly positive

about their new home and the whole

experience.

The builder, Associate Construction,

was excellent to work with.

“Every single contractor was top

notch,” Rick says. “We would work

with them all again.”

But for the distant future, the couple

has no plans of moving anywhere

else. Thanks to the wide-open floor

plan, this home will accommodate

aging-in-place beautifully. Plus, they

are fans of the Greater Dayton lifestyle.

Rick, who is originally from New

Mexico says, “A lot of people don’t

know how good they have it here.

It’s relatively inexpensive and there’s

not a lot of traffic. The people here

are decent, laid back. We love the

Midwest!”

Tonia’s office is tucked away in a more private area off the entry.

Homeowner purchases childhood

home, upgrades to adult kitchen

BY SARAH J. DILLS | PHOTOS BY TIFFANY SCHULTZ

Before

Who doesn’t dream of going back to visit their childhood home? To walk into

that bedroom, that feels so much smaller as an adult, where so many big

dreams were conjured. For Emily Henry, she not only got to visit her childhood

home: she got the chance to buy it.

“It was never the plan for us to buy this place, but it just worked out this

way,” Emily says.

As much as Emily may enjoy the nostalgia of raising her own three daughters

with her husband, Scott, in her childhood home in Montgomery; the reality of

the space left much to be desired… especially in the kitchen… homeschooling…

during a pandemic. ➻

30 housetrends.com


After: The window arrangement was reconfigured on the sink wall for a more unified look.

housetrends magazine 2022 31


TIGHT QUARTERS

The Henrys had been thinking about

renovating their kitchen for a while.

“We got into COVID and were really

stuck in that space all together,”

Emily remembers with a laugh.

“Three young girls—nine-year-old

twins and a seven-year-old—trying

to do virtual learning really sped up

our plans.”

The Henrys knew they needed

to work with someone who could

manage their project. “My husband

and I both work, we have our kids,

and I coach at Orangetheory on the

side,” Emily says. “I had a co-worker

who had worked with Neal’s Design

Remodel. She told me all the ways

they went above and beyond every

expectation, so I knew they would do

the same for us.”

SO LONG SOFFITS

Emily had one inspirational picture

of a kitchen when she went to meet

Neal’s designer Jodi Smith for the

first time. “What I wanted was a

massive island,” Emily describes. “I

wanted to be able to bake cookies, roll

dough, get flour everywhere. I wanted

to be able to seat a lot of people

around the island with no other table

in our kitchen. When we entertain,

that is where everyone hangs out.”

The kitchen was small, dark, and

the soffits made the space seem

smaller than it was. “They were

awful,” Emily admits. “I hated them.”

Emily knew she wanted to get rid of

the soffit and have cabinets go to the

ceiling but admits that everything

else was Smith and the team at Neal’s.

“What stood out the most when I

met them was that they talked a lot

about their family,” Smith remembers.

“Their existing space was not

functional, so we wanted to make

sure everything we created had function

as the focus.” ➻

“We had a much smaller, two-part sink

so I love, love, love the big sink.”

-Emily

housetrends magazine 2022 33


OPEN WIDE

The goal of opening the kitchen was achieved by making the wall between the living room

and kitchen much smaller. The wall between the kitchen and the formal dining room was

removed. The back wall of the kitchen was pushed out and made flush with the existing

breakfast nook wall. In the process, an awkward, under-cabinet window was removed. “Gosh,

that was so 1990,” Emily says.

It was replaced with three windows creating a visual centerpiece to the feature wall of the

kitchen over the farmhouse sink. “The Henrys wanted an apron-front fireclay sink,” Smith

says. “Emily made that specific request because her research showed it would be the most

durable.”

The homeowners opted for an electric range instead of gas because they admittedly don’t

cook enough to make the investment. “We did invest in a Sub-Zero fridge,” Emily says. “And I

did want a double oven since I frequently host Thanksgiving. It was always a challenge. We’d

be stuffing things in toaster ovens.”

A built-in Sub-Zero refrigerator blends in beautifully on a wall of cabinetry near the oversized island with seating for six.

Before

After: As the Henrys built out into their back yard, they

wanted to expand the outdoor living space to fit a fire pit.

“We wanted a space that

we can get eight chairs

around the fire pit so our

neighbors and friends could

enjoy it with us.” -Emily

BACK TO SCHOOL

The family set up a little kitchen station

in their basement. “I joked that I felt like I

was back in college,” Emily recalls. “If you

ran the toaster oven and the microwave

at the same time, you’d trip the circuit.

“It was a little like living in a construction

zone, but it was cool to see progress.

The kids loved coming home from school

every day and wanted to see what had

happened while they were gone.

“It was so worth it to us though to

make this investment now, because we

know we’ll be in this house for 20-plus

years.” ➻

housetrends magazine 2022 35


ROOM TO GROW

Scott and Emily are excited to see

their girls grow in this new space

and watch them hangout with their

friends.

“We don’t feel like we’re on top of

each other,” Emily says. “Mornings

are still nuts, but the kids have more

autonomy. And Scott and I spend a

lot more time in there, having a glass

of wine after the kids go to bed.

“We really enjoyed working with

Neal’s. The communication was very

clear. One of the drawings had missed

that one of the girl’s bedroom windows

would become obstructed by

the addition, so they moved her window

at their own expense. They did

it on their own dime because they

missed it. That speaks to the value of

what they provide.”

dirty work

While the Henrys were tackling their kitchen renovation, they

decided to get their dream laundry and mud rooms too.

“We run the laundry like four times a day,” Emily says. “So that

was the biggest investment for me. I went with the LG front loader.

I spent three years on the laundry division of P&G. I probably know

more than any normal person should about washing machines.”

Emily has a system for how she likes to do laundry, so she found

a basket system on Pinterest she liked. And she didn’t want to do

laundry in the formal dining room anymore, so she wanted a place

where she could fold and sort all in one.

The mudroom is where the original laundry room was, so the

team at Neal’s built the addition to include the laundry room.

“The Henrys wanted a place for the girls to plug in their iPads,

hang up their coats…plus, the parents wanted those things too,”

Jodi Smith, designer at Neal’s says. “So, when they come in the door,

their stuff is left by the door.”

WALK

this way

BY KAREN BRADNER

It’s a space that gets an incredible amount of use, but not usually a great

deal of attention. Guests come and go on this, packages get delivered

via this route, and landscaping often follows its borders.

We’re talking about your front walkway. It just might be time to step

away from that straight line of poured concrete and follow a path with

a bit more personality. Creating a warm, welcoming entrance to the

front of your home not only adds a good deal of curb appeal—it also

gives your resale value a boost.

Stroll through the following pages and see which of these options

best suits the style of your home. ➻

46 housetrends.com


CONCRETE

If you want to stick with concrete,

this is a versatile material that offers

plenty of options.

Want to keep it simple? Consider a

curvier path and add a bit of non-slip

texture with a “broom” finish. Or add

a bit of zing with stamping and dying.

The result can look like brick, slate,

flagstone, wood planks and more.

“If you are updating an old

front walkway, widening

it to four feet and adding

curves makes it much more

functional and appealing.”

—Lisa Herd, Snyder Brick & Block

PRO: Concrete requires less maintenance

than stone, tile or brick.

CON: Concrete must include joints

to allow for expansion and contraction

due to temperature changes.

Price range for installed concrete:

Broom finish $12-$15/sq. ft.

Stamped $18-$22/sq. ft.

CONCRETE PAVERS

Pavers are typically stones made of

dyed concrete and are available in

many shapes, sizes and colors. They

are placed on a foundation composed

of compacted gravel topped with an

inch or so of sand. Edging—sometimes

metal, but more commonly

plastic—is often used to keep the

pavers in place. Lately, a “concrete

toe” edge is becoming a new trend.

PRO: Due to its multiple seams, a

paver walkway can flex during freeze

and thaw cycles without cracking.

CON: Weeds can sprout up between

pavers. Use a polymeric sand in the

joints to deter weeds.

Price range of materials only:

$2.50-$13/sq. ft.

Rock installed by Hicon. Photo by Ross Van Pelt

housetrends magazine 2022 47


CLAY PAVERS

Always a classic choice, brick pavers

introduce a level of old-world charm.

Solid clay paving bricks are hardfired

in kilns at high temperatures to

fuse the clay particles for maximum

strength. This hard-firing creates rich

colors that are resistant to ultraviolet

light, which often causes artificially

colored concrete pavers to fade. Brick

pavers can be placed on a more flexible

sand base or a concrete base with

cement joints.

PRO: A clay paver surface is stainresistant.

CON: Shapes and sizes are limited.

They are typically in the shape of a

4x8 rectangular brick, but do come

in a few other sizes.

Price range for materials only:

$3.75-$12/sq.ft.

FLAGSTONE

Flagstone is a hard, flat stone usually

made of sandstone bound together

by minerals like silica, calcite, or iron

ore. It is known for its rich texture

in a broad range of colors—

browns, grays, golds, and blues. It’s

a great choice for a more rustic look,

and it preserves a green and earthy

element in your landscaped area.

PRO: Neutral flagstones blend

in and become part of landscapes.

CON: Flagstone installed in sand

will keep shifting if the sand is not

leveled and stable. That is not the

case when it’s set in concrete.

Price range for materials only:

$10-$15/sq.ft.

BLUESTONE

A type of flagstone, bluestone is a very popular

choice for midwestern homes. Colors are typically

in the gray/blue range but can vary widely—from

a purplish hue to tones of brown—

depending on the geographic source of the stone.

Use rectangular stones for a more formal look.

Irregular shapes offer a more casual appeal.

PRO: Bluestone’s steely blues and grays are striking

whether it’s cloudy, raining, snowing, or sunny.

CON: Bluestone absorbs more sunlight than

lighter stones making it especially hot during

sunny summer days.

Price range for materials only: $10-$15/sq.ft.

MIDWEST STONES

By choosing a natural stone that is indigenous

to our region, you will know it will hold up to

the weather conditions in this area. Limestone,

which has a uniform texture and color, is quarried

from Ohio and Indiana. Sandstone, which

offers a variation in color and texture, tends to

be quarried from the eastern counties in Ohio.

PRO: These stones usually look more natural

than manufactured stones.

CON: Natural stone has color variations,

so you might not get an exact match to your

sample piece.

Price range for materials only: $9-$18/sq.ft.

Brown Sandstone and landscaping by The Site Group. Photo by Daniel Feldkamp

housetrends magazine 2022 49


STEPPING STONES

For an informal option, you can

place stepping stones within gravel.

Irregular fieldstone, bluestone or

limestone in pieces no smaller than

18” work great. Be sure to use an edge

restraint such as steel edging, cobblestone

curbing, or other material to

prevent the gravel from spreading

into the surrounding landscape.

“Adding a natural stone walkway is a

beautiful way to increase curb appeal

using a material that will last

the life of the home.”

—Jon Smiley, Stone Center

PRO: This is one of the more inexpensive

options.

CON. You need to use a geotextile

weed barrier below the gravel to prevent

plant growth.

Price range for materials only:

$10-$15/sq.ft.

GRANITE, QUARTZITE AND MARBLE

Mined from locations around the globe, these natural stones typically

are used as pavers.

Granite is durable, non-slip and scratch resistant. It’s a reliable

paving choice for walkways due to its earthy and textured finish.

Granite is porous and should be sealed to avoid possible staining

and moisture damage.

Created from pure quartz sandstone, Quartzite is an extremely

hard stone that makes it ideal for outdoor applications.

Marble, a rigid metamorphic rock, is among the most durable

and highest-quality materials used for outdoor applications.

PRO: All these stones are extremely hard and durable.

CON: This category includes the most expensive options.

Price range for materials only: $18-$28/sq.ft.

Brick and Block Above Granite natural stone pavers.

TRAVERTINE

Travertine is also quarried from around

the world with the three most common

locations being Italy, Turkey, and Mexico.

Italian Travertine is what Rome’s Coliseum

is made of. Mexico’s Travertine is more

porous and does not hold up to frost.

Turkish Travertine is very common and, in

most instances, is less expensive than the

Italian. It holds up well in a freeze/thaw

climate.

PRO: Travertine doesn’t absorb heat like

many of the other materials listed.

CON: Qualities of Travertine differ considerably

depending on where the stones

are quarried.

Price range for materials only: $8-$15/sq.ft.

Paramount Landscaping. Photo by Ross Van Pelt

PORCELAIN TILE

Porcelain is a colorfast and low maintenance

option. Select an exterior grade

that is weather-resistant and not slippery.

Porcelain is a great choice for homeowners

who want to mimic the look of marble.

These tiles are also fired at higher kiln temperatures,

leading to harder, stronger and

more scratch-resistant tiles.

PRO: Porcelain is more durable than

ceramic tiles due to their increased density.

CON: Porcelain can be brittle and needs

to be installed on a completely flat surface

to avoid breakage.

Price range for materials only: $7-$14/sq.ft.

Paneria Porcelain Pavers from Hamilton Parker

“Stain resistant porcelain

pavers are a beautiful,

low-maintenance option

for high traffic outdoor

entertaining areas.”

—Britt Warren, Hamilton Parker

housetrends magazine 2022 51


CERAMIC TILE

Ceramic tiles are less dense and

more porous than porcelain. Be sure

to choose a tile rated for outdoor

use with an unglazed finish for a

rougher, less slippery surface. Their

density, compared to porcelain tiles,

makes them less water and stain

resistant, particularly if they’re

unglazed.

PRO: Ceramic tile is less expensive

than porcelain tile with a wider range

of colors and styles available.

CON: It’s also more porous, making

them more crack-prone and vulnerable

to stains.

Price range for materials only:

$3 -$12/sq.ft.

For the sake of comparison in this article,

price ranges were gathered from a variety

of vendors in August of 2022 and

do not include installation. When multiple

ranges were supplied, Housetrends

included the lowest price and the highest

price from the group.

These are rough estimates for comparison

purposes and will vary depending

on suppliers and locations. Also, delivery

costs are a variable when it comes to

pricing any of these materials.

TIPS TO

PREPARE

YOUR PATIO

FOR FALL

AND WINTER

Remove leaves, twigs, berries and

grass clippings. Keeping your pavers free

of organic debris is key to great looking

pavers year around. This organic material

decomposes leaving stains on the pavers

and sand joints. It can retain moisture

aiding in the germination of vegetation

and it becomes the food this vegetation

needs to thrive. This is especially important

during the fall season when the leaves are

dropping.

Once per week: Use a leaf blower and

thoroughly blow off your pavers during the

fall months. Once per month: Use a garden

hose nozzle set to a shower setting and rinse

off all of the pavers and sand joints.

We suggest not using snow shovels or

snow plows with metal blades to prevent

scarring of the paver. Snow blowers with

rubber paddles are our recommended

method for removing snow.

Can repairs be made in the Fall and

Winter season? There’s no time like the

Our sealing process also includes

with polymeric sand you can keep the

Professionally sealed pavers look

sealers designed to enhance the remaining

I had new pavers installed this year,

should I have them sealed before the

winter?

You should wait 60-90 days before sealing

your pavers to allow natural salts to

longer because the wear begins as soon as

they’re installed. Waiting until next spring/

summer is just fine.

you’re invited to

The Grandview Heights/

Marble Cliff Historical Society

Tour of Homes

Sunday, October 2, 2022 - 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.

Once every three years, you are invited to step inside some of the

most beautiful homes in Grandview Heights and Marble Cliff. This

year’s tour showcases six homes; five from the early 1900s and a

mid-century ranch. Here is a taste of what you will see:

• Two-story carriage house repurposed into a stunning guest suite.

• Desk designed by George Nakishima, an innovator in 20th century furniture

design and a father of the American Studio Craft Movement.

• Traditional Four Square with modern owner’s suite and family room addition.

• Letter penned in the 1950s from a teenager to his home’s future owners.

• Renovated 1950s ranch built on the site of a former country club’s clubhouse.

• Ultra-modern, totally renovated Colonial with original art throughout.

A BIT ABOUT THE COMMUNITIES

Grandview Heights began to transition from farm and woodland to residential

use in the 1880s. The 1901 extension of a streetcar line from Columbus

led to rapid development and incorporation in 1906. The city’s rich history is

reflected in the national-register historic “Bank Block,” considered one of the

earliest regional shopping centers in the United States; a 1926 single-screen

movie theater; historically-renovated buildings and homes; a strong Italian

heritage; and the longest-continually-operating Victory Garden in the country.

One of the first suburbs of Columbus, Marble Cliff was incorporated as the

“Hamlet of Marble Cliff” in 1901. It took its name from the nearby Marble Cliff

Quarry Co. The village was a bucolic retreat for wealthy Columbus residents

who wanted to get away (and upwind) from the smelly industrial city. The first

country club in central Ohio was established in Marble Cliff and among the

community’s more famous residents was Samuel Prescott Bush, patriarch of

the Bush political dynasty.

ABOUT THE HOME

A local developer will begin building homes in

Trotwood designed to withstand tornadospeed

winds less than two miles from the path of the EF4

tornado that wreaked havoc on the community

earlier this year.

ABOUT THE BUILDER

The G.F. Bailey Company is a community of talented

professionals dedicated to Impact Investing

opportunities locally and nationally. We work

with investors seeking to identify opportunities

for socially responsible change and advancement

while also retaining capital. We focus on projects

that promote affordable housing, neighborhood

redevelopment & construction, environmental

concerns, and clean and healthy food production

& sustainability. G.F. Bailey was founded in 2017

by Timothy Forbess as an organization aimed at

helping single mothers attain affordable housing.

Inspired by the character, George Bailey from “A

Wonderful Life,” G.F. Bailey has developed into a

multidimensional Impact Investment firm.

G.F. Bailey began talks with Trotwood about the new

homes more than a year ago before the Memorial

Day tornadoes that damaged 4,434 properties in

Montgomery County and displaced as many as 1,100

households. But the design always included houses

able to withstand EF3 tornadoes, said Max Fuller

president of G.F. Bailey Build Group.

After the tornadoes, the developers added a safe

room that consists of extra steel reinforcement in

the frame of one of the interior rooms, he said. G.F.

Bailey learned about the “safe room” at a countysponsored

event following the tornadoes.

ABOUT THE BUILDER

At Tim Guilfoyle Custom homes our goal is

to provide our clients with a personalized

custom home building experience. We

take pride in our hands-on approach to

building and dedication to the highest

quality craftsmanship. Our luxury patio

home product at the Woods of Beavercreek

provides clients with a level of refinement not

typically found in a patio home. Outside “The

Woods,’’ our custom homes are available on

your lot, or in your neighborhood and within

your budget.

Rustic brick and stone combinations,

coupled with steeply pitched gables and bellshaped

eaves emphasize the Terraceview’s

English Cottage pedigree. In contrast to the

Terraceview’s old world exterior, its interior

boasts a transitional décor designed for

modern living. Cathedral ceilings with oversized

windows in the great room and kitchen area

provide ample natural light to the open concept

design. The split bedroom plan provides privacy

for our owner’s suite, accentuated by our luxury

owner’s bathroom, which has become a defining

feature of a Tim Guilfoyle-built custom home.

Taking advantage of the lot specific features,

the Terraceview also includes a basement

media room complete with a walkout and patio.

While located near The Woods of Beavercreek

clubhouse, pool and tennis courts, the

Terraceview’s side yard balcony and patio area

provide its owners with a

private grotto to escape a

busy social life or entertain

a small group of friends.
