Stan Malaske's company, SWM & Sons Custom Homes, has four homes in spring festival

That field constitutes a fairly broad swath, with homes under construction from Norman to Edmond, in Newcastle, in Shawnee and around central Oklahoma.

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.
