January 2007 | Issue 13

With working out at home more popular than ever, it should come as no surprise that the latest trend in new homes is home fitness centres. In our cover story, just in time for New Year’s resolutions, writer Sonya Procenko visits with personal fitness expert Tim Borys to see how he puts together a home gym.

In It’s About Choices… we look at some of the real-life decisions, options and upgrades that are part of the new home building process. This month we talk about windows and how this is one part of a home that not only looks nice and lets the sunshine in, but can conserve energy costs.

Each edition of New Home Living profiles a new community and a home builder. This time around we highlight the growing community of Westmount in Okotoks as well as the new Avi Concept series of homes in Silverado.

Our regular show home tour keeps us in the deep south this month, as we visit NuVista’s Chelsea model in Black Diamond; Sabal’s Scandinavian-inspired Arkitekt series of homes in Copperfield; and Excel’s family-friendly Princeton model in Bridlewest.

Other editorial departments such as the Designer’s Choice floor plan focus, Anita Tighe’s Decorating & Design column, Giving Back, and Around Town, can all be found in their usual place in the magazine. We’ve also covered a couple of news items in this edition: the Mayor’s town hall meetings on infrastructure spending and the announcement of finalists for the annual Canadian Home Builders Association awards (which includes several Calgary companies).
