Construction Resources partners with SOARD to bring hope to the Bode familySixteen year old Connor Bode is just like any other teenager. He grows taller and more handsome every day, wants to be more independent, is full of surprises and lights up every room with his contagious smile. However, Connor was diagnosed with Open-Lip Bilateral Schizencephaly at five months of age. This rare brain disorder, characterized by abnormal slits in the brain’s cerebral hemispheres, causes Connor to experience impaired hearing and vision, abnormal muscle tone, seizures, hydrocephaly and partial paralysis. Cerebral Palsy is another side effect of the disease, making his mobility and every day activities like showering even more difficult.

Despite this painful illness, Connor has an incredible support system that helps him reach his goals and exceed expectations. As an extension of that support system, we at Construction Resources are thrilled to partner again with Sunshine on a Ranney Day (SOARD), an Atlanta-based nonprofit that creates dream room and home makeovers for children with long-term illnesses.

Cambria at Parade of HomesConstruction Resources, an Atlanta based company that offers a variety of kitchen and bath products, is excited to announce that CR Home Alabama and its partner Ridgecrest Properties recently won a Gold award for their showcase home for the 2015 Birmingham Parade of Homes.

The luxury home is located in The Preserve master-planned community in Hoover. The 3,433 square foot, semi-custom home features four bedrooms and three baths. This marks the first time for Ridgecrest Properties to use Cambria in a Parade home and is the only Cambria-exclusive home in the entire Parade.

The 2015 Parade of Homes showcases beautiful homes, the latest new home features and the best in construction by the area’s top builders and construction professionals. The Parade takes place throughout the Birmingham Metropolitan area and is open to the public and free to tour.

CR Home is installing Cambria’s Torquay and Templeton designs in the home. An unassuming gray with tiny toffee-colored flecks, Templeton is both relaxed and rugged like the old stone cottages of Templeton Village. Torquay is an instant classic, offering a beautiful marble-like appearance that’s both posh and continental, much like this English Riviera town itself.

The Preserve, located in highly sought-after Hoover, is one of the South’s best-loved neighborhoods, with authentic southern Birmingham Parade of Homeshometown architecture, oversized sidewalks and porches to enjoy neighborly views, 250 acres of scenic trails through beautiful Alabama woodlands, parks and resort-style amenities.

CR Home Alabama has been rapidly growing, with expansions underway at its design center and operations facilities. In addition, all of the Construction Resources’ brands such as Cambria, Vetrazzo, Piedrafina and many more will be offered at this new location.
