In all, Malaske said he expects to complete 45 homes in 2013. The increase from 2012, when he built 30, says a lot about the heat in the new-home market right now.
The bulk of the homes Malaske builds — and the four homes SWM & Sons has in the Parade of Homes Spring Festival — are centered in eastern Oklahoma County.
The company's model home, at 12005 Tuscany Ridge, is a 3,872-square-foot, four-bedroom home with 3 ½ baths and an upstairs game room.
The home opens into a vaulted foyer with adjacent study and formal dining rooms. The open flow from the living room into the kitchen creates a vast family space, custom cooking facilities and a bright, warm living area.
Two kids' bedrooms on the ground floor are linked Jack-and-Jill style by a spacious bathroom. The master suite, which opens to the patio and outdoor kitchen, adjoins a luxurious, custom bath and walk-in closets.
Upstairs is the fourth bedroom, a full bathroom and the game room. For maximum comfort, the attic includes a solar board finish to reduce summer temperatures by 30 to 40 degrees.
Three other SWM & Sons' other festival homes are:
• A 2,130-square foot, three bedroom/two bath layout at 10407 SE 23, already sold but shown as a model.
• A 2,800-square foot, three bedroom/two-and-a-half bath home at 13439 Prestwick Circle, offered at $332,900.
A 3,174-square foot, three bedroom/two-and-a-half bath home at 3900 Newburg Drive, listed at $377,900.
