Neighborhoods and Communities

Colbyco Homes considers Sustainability in neighborhoods and communities in every project we do.

The quality products and services that Colbyco Homes provides is only the tip of what lies below Our thoughts also include the neighborhoods and communities we work in.

Communities are built from sustainable neighborhoods and sustainable neighborhoods are built one improvement at a time. When a neighborhood starts to look like people care a new life is created in the area. Yards get tended and houses get a fresh coating of paint and a new roof.

When the inside of a home gets an update or a remodel it makes the family feel proud of what they have created. When people have pride in their homes, they invite the neighbors and friends to stop by. When this happens everyone meets everyone and a new sustainable community is formed.

Creating a neighborhood where people stay and raise their kids and then rock their grand children on the front porch is what Colbyco Homes envisions for the people we build homes and renovate for.

With a sustainable community we all have more support

and we are exposed to people with services we need or people that need our services. We can share rides and have play dates with the kids, all of this makes us feel more connected. It’s all about helping each other in order to live in the neighborhoods and communities that we choose to live in and to stay there because of the bonds that have been formed.

Their are many people living in many cities all over the country

Some people love where they live while others would prefer to live somewhere else. What makes a place desirable to People?

There are people that want to work, and then come home and wait for the next day.

Then there are those who like to live and have friends over to homes where they entertain, they like to live in real neighborhoods.Screen shot 2015-01-29 at 4.09.32 PM

A neighborhood is considered a group of houses in an area of the city but it is so much more than that. It’s about the older gentleman who walks his dog every day and stops at the fence to chat.

It’s about the kids that play basketball at the curb or the Mom watching her kids ride their bikes on the front walk.

When you see these sorts of things going on you have more than a group of houses, you have a true neighborhood.

ColbyCo Homes believes that when people show pride in their homes, they feel better about themselves. When that happens they want to help more people to do the same thing. It’s people helping people find solutions that make life better and more enjoyable, helping each other with ideas and doing them together.

When houses look better on the outside they create a cared for atmosphere, and that is what a neighborhood is all about, Caring! Caring about your neighbors and whether their kids got off the bus. It’s caring about how your house looks and if the lawn is mowed.

A neighborhood is full of neighborly people whom keep their eye out for each other.

This provides a safe environment for everyone! You need not fear going on vacation because the neighbors are keeping a watch, you need not worry about the kids playing outside and play dates are easier to find.

Coffee? Sure! It also matters what the inside of our home looks like, sometimes an update like a fresh coat of paint is just what you need to feel like throwing a neighborhood BBQ. It could be that your home needs a “bit” more than just some fresh paint. Everyone gets to the point of needing a little update, let’s face it, if you are going to cook, an updated kitchen will make everything taste better!

At Colbyco Homes we believe in creating Communities.

We also believe that communities are built in areas where neighborhoods have strong neighborly ties. Neighborhoods where people know their neighbors and have an interest in their lives. These types of neighborhoods when brought together make sustainable communities.

How does Colbyco help in forming lasting communities?

We make sure that we stay true to the neighborhoods where we build and renovate. We know what it’s like for the home buyer that moves into a home that the rest of the neighborhood thinks doesn’t belong. We make sure that our building practices are sustainable, we don’t tear down something that can be fixed. We examine the neighborhood to make sure that what we build ADDS value and does not take away from the neighborhood.

It is not enough to fix a house up and then move on, we make sure that the homes we build and renovate are set up for success with the quality materials we use and our very own building team that does things the way we think they should be done.

CheersColbyco is helping to Build communities of people in neighborhoods where everybody knows each other. Where pride of ownership shows and most importantly, a neighborhood where kids can safely play in their front yards and sidewalks. A place where chalk drawings are commonplace and Communities that feel like the American Dreams is Alive and Thriving.
