MOORE — The 2014 Southwest Showcase of Homes continues this weekend with a smaller-than-usual, 24-home lineup that includes two project homes built to benefit local charities.
The Southwest Showcase — co-presented by the Moore Home Builders Association and Southwest Home Builders Association — shows new homes, open free to the public, from 1 to 7 p.m. daily through Sunday.
For Brandon Waller, owner of Affinity Homes, building this year’s project home for the Moore association was an opportunity to showcase his building style in an addition he personally developed — while benefiting worthy causes in the region.
The Moore project home, 1812 NE 27 Terrace in the Siena Ridge addition, is a three-bedroom, two-bath, 1,756-square-foot cottage with an inviting, covered front porch and patio and roomy storage inside a three-car garage.
The heart of the house is an open kitchen-living-dining area complete with a fireplace and upgraded fixtures and finishes surrounding a central kitchen island.
The master suite is situated in privacy just off the family area, with an ample bedroom and an open, light and luxurious-feeling master bath.
In addition to two smaller bedrooms, a flex room at the front of the house can serve as a study or possibly an additional bedroom.
The house carries an Energy Star certification, with weather-sealing technologies from Home Energy Solutions.
Of the $203,900 listing price, Waller said he hopes to see as much as $30,000 contributed to the Moore builders association’s charitable beneficiaries, which in the past have included the Cleveland County Red Cross, the Food for Kids Backpack Program and scholarships for homebuilding-related study at Moore Norman Technology Center, among others.
Siena Ridge, situated near NE 27 and Bryant Avenue, is sold out in its first two phases, Waller said.
Waller, a Lawton native who serves as first vice president of the Moore Home Builders Association, was first exposed to construction through his father, a general contractor.
“I started pushing a broom at homebuilding sites when I was 5,” Waller said.
In 2004, after working as a supervisor for other large local builders, Waller started Waller Homes, the company that today is known as Affinity Homes.
