Since joining the Lamar Smith family just two years ago, Senior Project Manager Del Crow has shown his passion, talent and leadership in a variety of ways. When coming to Lamar Smith Homes, Crow brought over twenty years of experience in the construction industry and several outstanding awards. Crow is just one member of the strong team that helps provide the leadership and decision-making that keeps Lamar Smith Homes the leading home building company in the greater Savannah area, as well as in Brunswick and Kingsland.
Showcasing an idyllic backdrop of woodlands, lakes, lagoons and natural trails with resort-style amenities, carefully crafted, energy-efficient homes and closeness to the most popular destinations in the Savannah area, The Woodland Villas at Southbridge is the perfect place to unwind and enjoy a full life. This master-planned, gated golf community offers residents privacy, a unique set of things to do and a true sense of home.

The garage is probably one of the most preferred stash places in your home. The attic is great, but it can be difficult to access. The basement is good, if you have one, but you might worry about dampness. Or you have a finished basement that’s already full.

Rather than continue to pack and stack boxes and bury items so deep that they are essentially lost, spend some time reorganizing your garage. Take back the space! Here are some de-cluttering and storage tips for garage organization.

We are excited to announce that we’re once again building new homes in two of Brunswick’s most popular communities, Carriage Gate Plantation and The Plantation at Golden Isles! New home buyers in Brunswick will have limited opportunities to purchase Lamar Smith homes in these two communities, as limited inventory homes are still available.

Carriage Gate Plantation

Carriage Gate Plantation is a beautiful gated community featuring lakes, lagoons and towering live oaks surrounding the homes, as well as preserved green space and buffers to enhance the community’s natural feel. This one-of-a-kind community also features an Architectural Review Committee, which allows for a unique yet cohesive community appearance while ensuring that all homes are built to the committee’s exacting standards.

What’s the best holiday present you could have? How about a new home! For a limited time, you can purchase a Lamar Smith quick delivery home and be in your new home just in time for the holidays.

Check out our available homes now, and then plan to stop by and see them soon – they won’t be available long!

For some people, changing colors in a room is like changing your hairstyle. It’s nice to try something different—and it’s easy enough to change back if you don’t like the result. For others, the prospect of switching is a scary proposition.

Painting a room is one of the most affordable ways to make a big change in your home. The only hard part can be the color choice. Looking at the array of paint chips in the store can be overwhelming. Before you head there, narrow down your choices.

Which is the best smart home assistant?

Saturday September 30, 2017

If your name is Alexa and you’re an actual person, you’re probably getting asked a lot more questions these days. ”Alexa, what time is it?” “Alexa, when is the next full moon?” “Alexa, how far is it to the nearest coffee shop?”

And you can thank Amazon for this annoyance.

Amazon launched the Echo in 2015 in the U.S. This cylindrical speaker connects to a voice-activated, computer-generated, smart home assistant named Alexa. Alexa is capable of answering questions (when properly phrased), playing music, acting as a timer or alarm clock, requesting an Uber ride, checking your calendar, making lists, reading audiobooks aloud, and reciting the news and weather updates. Of course, Alexa can also place your Amazon orders, too.

Energy efficiency is one of the top priorities for homeowners. No one wants to waste energy (or money) on a home, appliances, or systems when there are ways to avoid it.

You’ve probably seen many of the ratings systems and codes tossed around, but do you know what they mean? Here’s a quick guide to the most common energy efficiency ratings and how to interpret the scores.

HERS. The Home Energy Rating System (HERS) measures the energy efficiency of a home and assigns a performance score. This rating is based on the efficiency of a standard new home. A home that was built according to the 2004 International Energy Conservation Code receives a HERS score of 100.

Televisions keep getting bigger and “smarter”. Video streaming selections keep getting broader and better. Siri, Alexa, and Google make it easier than ever to find the movies and programs you want,

A home theater system is no longer a matter of enjoying the occasional movie in the comfort of your home. Today, it’s how people are experiencing entertainment—from sports to movies to everyday programs

So, if you’ve been wondering whether you should invest in expanding your viewing quality, the answer is, yes, you DO need a home theater system.

For the past few years, you might have been watching the real estate market with interest, but didn’t feel ready to make the leap from renter to homeowner. You can still take advantage of low interest rates.

Why are you hesitating?

Here are some telltale signs you might be more ready than you think.
