Now that the weather is warming and pollen season is over in Hampton Roads, the time is ripe to declutter and thoroughly clean your living spaces. Use our DIY checklist to make sure the job goes smoothly and efficiently—from entryways to interiors. Then sit back, relax, and say hello to summer!

Home as Your Home Base
by Brandon Simpson and Dan Lawson
Her home base – We have a friend who has worked out of her house for years. Her home office is on the second floor, in a large bonus room overlooking the backyard. She is accustomed to having the space to herself during the day. Now as more people are working from home, she has an office mate—her husband, who is telecommuting. Their kids are also home, taking their school classes online.
“Of course, no one planned for any of this,” she told us. “Every square inch of our house is being used. All I can say is, ‘Thank goodness for the bonus room!’”
How you use your home today is different. From teleworking and learning in place, to using outdoor areas for reflection and recreation, our abodes have become our safe, new “home base.”
Having a multi-functional floor plan with a bonus or “flex” room is serving families well. Providing homeowners with choice and flexibility, these rooms can become whatever you want them to be—a playroom, office, reading nook, or hobby room. It’s the chance to create a space you will enjoy using, while easing the stress of having multiple people living under one roof.
Ample outdoor space also has become important for those who want to “get away” in their own backyards.
Patios, porches, and deck space for dining and hanging out are in demand. More than ever, people have turned to gardening for both relaxation and growing their own produce. AB Homes is known for spacious home sites that can accommodate outdoor living, garden areas, and space for backyard camping or a swim in your own pool.
