Fire Prevention | Protect Your Home and Family

It’s important to protect your family with properly placed and installed smoke alarms. Remember, smoke alarms are only designed to last 7-10 years. If yours are over 10 years old, it’s time to replace!

Help increase awareness in your community about the life-saving benefits of smoke alarms.

Fire prevention tips to protect your family.

Statistics to share

  • Three out of five home fire deaths result from fires in properties without working smoke alarms
  • More than one-third (37 percent) of home fire deaths result from fires in which no smoke alarms are present.
  • The risk of dying in a home fire is cut in half in homes with working smoke alarms.

Northwood Plan 209 | Rendering-to-Reality

The Northwood home plan 209 is under construction in Travelers Rest, SC! 

By: Echo Jones - Marketing Assistant

When I began my career at Donald Gardner Architects, I never dreamed that one day I would be building my own Gardner home. About two years ago my husband Bryon and I began looking for a house to purchase. Our wish list may have been a bit ambitious because nothing we found met our expectations. One night while out on a walk with our dog, Bryon said to me, “you know, you look at house plans all day, maybe we should build one”. The thought had never crossed my mind. Did I even want to build a house? It was an exciting and intimidating possibility.

I came to work the next day with a new perspective. If I were to pick a Gardner plan, which one would fit our needs? Our house search came up empty, mostly because we wanted 10+ acres of land and our home style is very contemporary (see mention of ambitious wish list above!). Building gave us the possibility to have both and it suddenly became very clear that yes, we did want to build a house.

We are excited to document our planning and home building process of The Northwood home plan in this personal “Rendering to Reality” series. Check back soon for updates!
