Sable Homes will feature its award-winning Bayberry model house in the 2016 Grand Rapids Fall Parade of Homes Oct. 7-22. The house, which features more than 2,200 square feet of finished living space, is located in the Paris Ridge development in Caledonia.

In June, the house swept the Home Builders Association of Greater Grand Rapids (HBAGGR) and Cosmopolitan Home Magazine’s Awards of Excellence for the $150,000-$200,000 home price class. A panel of more than 20 industry experts awarded the house with Best Kitchen, Best Floor Plan, Best Curb Appeal, and Best Interior Elements, following the 2016 Grand Rapids Spring Parade of Homes.

All Sable Homes are built with volatile organic compound (VOC) free paints and toxin free flooring glues. These advanced materials have been proven to reduce airborne toxins as the house and its materials age. In addition, Sable uses WhisperGreen fans for clean air exchange and ventilation and a VOC absorbing gypsum board drywall which reduces VOC levels in the air.

Sable Homes also uses eco-friendly Superior Walls Xi Foundation System insulation in basements, which increases a home’s energy rating. Sable’s entry into the Parade of Homes earned a Home Energy Rating System (HERS) 5+ star rating. This is the highest achievable rating on the HERS system and is only awarded to homes that are 30 percent more energy efficient than code.
