We at LifeStyle Homes would like to take a moment to say THANK YOU to our customers and community for a wonderful 2016. As we wrap up this year, we reflect on a year filled with lots of company highs.

In 2016, we handed keys to many homeowners eager to start a new chapter with their families. We also were filled with a great sense of pride as numerous new and longtime Brevard and Indian River residents put their trust in us to build their dream homes. As we roll into 2017, we can’t wait to deliver these homes to their new owners and welcome these families into ours.

Giving back to our community has also been a theme of 2016. The success of this year allowed us to relaunch “Education Renovation,” a program near and dear to LifeStyle Homes. Education Renovation was created by our founders in the ’90s to reward local school teachers. Although the housing market crash forced LifeStyle to discontinue the program, today’s booming market allowed for its relaunch this past August. Since then, we’ve delivered much-needed classroom tools to some awesome teachers in our community.

LifeStyle also signed on to build one of the eight cottages for Nana’s House gated community in West Melbourne. The cottage, expected to be completed in a few months, will offer shelter and a loving home for Brevard’s needy, abused, and abandoned children.

We’ve also entered the gates of a few new communities and opened doors to new model homes. From south to north, in 2016 we expanded our journey into Indian River by launching our Monterey model in Vero Beach’s 4 Lakes subdivision. We began selling lots in Wesley Groves, a brand-new West Melbourne neighborhood. And we revealed our stunning St. Thomas model home in the much-anticipated community of Seville in Viera.

And to cap it all off, LifeStyle was lucky enough to stick a few new feathers in our cap as the recipient of some awesome awards. Our co-founder, Larry Hufford, accepted a 2016 Housing Innovation Award by the U.S. Department of Energy in Dallas. LifeStyle also walked with numerous awards—including top honors for our Santa Cruz model in Vero Beach’s Huntington Place—in the Spring Treasure Coast Parade of Homes, as well as took home a Platinum award in the HBCA’s Fall Parade of Homes for our Seville model.

With all that said, we once again want to say thank you to everyone for another great year. We hope to continue this momentum into 2017 and beyond. From everyone at LifeStyle, have a safe and happy new year!
