Signs of fall

In Calgary, there’s a few things that herald the changing of the seasons — the end of summer and beginning of fall. The leaves start to change colour. The kids are back in school. Days are shorter, nights are longer. And the Home + Interior Design Show is in town.

On September 17 to 20 the BMO Centre in Stampede Park will play host to more than 200 exhibitors and thousands of show attendees as the annual Home + Interior Design Show takes over centre stage on the local design, home improvement and renovation scene. In addition to the wide variety of products and services on display, expert speakers — including headliner Mag Ruffman — will share their wisdom. New Home Living is even sponsoring a special ‘staycation’ display at the show.

For many homeowners, improving their home means making it more energy efficient. In this, our fall ‘green edition’, we provide readers with some ‘news you can use’ in the form of some real-world information on easy ways to help reduce your home’s environmental footprint. From building green, to buying Energy Star approved appliances, installing low flow plumbing fixtures, using environmentally friendly cleaning products — and even attending Calgary’s EcoLiving Fair — you’ll find it all in our September edition.

You’ll also find some fantastic new homes from some rock-solid builders, starting with our cover feature on Crossley Custom Homes. From Okotoks to High River, you can tell Crossley has been there by the trail of satisfied customers. Also profiled are Stepper Homes’ 2,958-square-foot, SAM Award-nominated, Cascade model in Heritage Hills in Cochrane; and the latest single-family offering from New Casa that’s as green as it is gorgeous. However, you can’t visit this one — because it’s since been sold!

And, lest we be guilty of bias against one of our own line of products, we introduce the newest tools in selling new homes in Calgary — Source Media Group’s online and mobile advertising solutions.

At New Home Living, we have seen the future. It’s green, and it’s on Source Mobile.
