The beloved architectural style known as Craftsman has undeniably British roots, yet it’s unmistakably American, from Oregon to Alabama to Illinois. Might that explain its enduring appeal?
Outshining the Competition
Builders invited prospects on their interest list to preview their new gated community via a unique invitation.
Builders at St. Johns Forest, a Taylor Woodrow community in Jacksonville, Fla., invited prospects on their interest list to preview their new gated community, St. Johns Forest, via a unique invitation. Dubbed a "Muddy Boots" event to highlight the under-construction conditions, the invitations arrived in a box of shoe polish. The box was printed with the declaration: "After a party like this, everything else will look a little dull."
Morrison Homes, David Weekley Homes, Richard R. Dostie - A Toll Brothers Co., and ICI Homes showcased the 435 acres that will be home to 500 families. Attendees received complimentary shoe shines. Twenty-eight guests reserved home sites during the event.
