Spring Homearama 2010

//

Founders Pointe was the site of the Tidewater Builders Association’s (TBA’s) 2010 Spring Homearama. It was TBA’s 29th year of creating a Homearama in Hampton Roads, but it was the first year that TBA had a Spring show and the first year for Isle of Wight County to host a show. This multi-builder, one-site home show has become a regional attraction offering visitors the chance to see what’s new in home design, interior decorating, landscaping, energy efficiency, and more.

The home show featured eight custom homes ranging in price from the $400s to $700,000 and brought tens of thousands of visitors over the 16-day event. The gracious character of the homes were compatible with the architectural styles that are already found in Founders Pointe – with careful attention to detail and visual interest. These plans were made all the more attractive in the natural beauty that has been preserved at Founders Pointe. To view a site plan of the Homearama neighborhood, click here. If you missed this first-ever spring Homearama, you can still take a look at the builders, home elevations, and floorplans that were featured in this special show.
