Is there a better feeling than opening your front door on a swampy Southern summer day and stepping into a cool foyer? What about spending a toasty winter evening curled up on the couch, no fire needed, watching a movie as the winter winds whip away outside? Well, meet the unsung hero of your new home’s cozy winter evenings and cool summer days: spray foam insulation.

Since the earliest days of Southern history, well-to-do residents of towns like Savannah and Augusta have left their downtown homes in the summer months to retreat to the cooler, less crowded highlands or hills. They would escape the sticky, humid cloud and flock to the trendy, higher ground.

In the past few years, the city of Pooler has become the new go-to place people are flocking to. What once was a little town serving as a convenient junction of major interstates and home to some of the region’s largest businesses has completely reinvented itself as the new “it” place to relocate to.


The Buckfield community is a peaceful, family oriented community nestled in the Georgia countryside. Tree-lined sidewalks criss-cross the neighborhood and charming street lamps ensure darkness won’t hinder a neighbor hood game of kickball. While the area itself is quaint, the homes are well-priced (starting from the $150’s), sit on large lots, and are extremely energy efficient, giving Buckfield residents extra spending money for the many nearby shopping centers. The Buckfield community offers the best of the countryside without having to give up the convenience of proximity to your favorite place to dine and shop.

Buying Your First Home Should Be Fun

Tuesday February 10, 2015

For many of us, a new home is the biggest purchase we will make in our lifetime. Well, unless that Gulfstream Jet works out. With that in mind, when you come to us as a first-time homebuyer, our goal is to make building your new home FUN. You can paint the walls whatever color you want, garden if you’d like, put up a basketball hoop for the kids; it’s your home! Building your new home becomes fun when you work with a team you can trust, who respects you, and who answers your questions open and honestly.
Don’t look for a new house. That may seem like odd advice coming from a homebuilding and real estate company, but we have your best interest in mind. At Lamar Smith Signature Homes, we tell people to never buy a house, when you can invest in a new home that provides the type of lifestyle your family has always dreamed about.

What Homebuyers Want

Thursday November 13, 2014

The most recent Home Design Trends survey from the American Institute of Architects shows even more proof of the housing market’s continuing uptown. The annual survey analyzed new home construction mid 2014 and the results showed that homebuyers are voicing their want for added non-essentials in their new homes.

Kitchen & Bath Trends

Thursday October 16, 2014

Two of the most notable home décor trends throughout 2014 have been the amped-up transformation of two rooms that used to serve functional purposes into luxurious spaces: the kitchen and the bath. The kitchen now is seen as an open, social hub for entertaining and a family to gather. While all bathrooms in the home have upped the anty on an important space to define your homes overall feel, the master bath has become one of the most elegant and artistic rooms in the home.
