THE JOY OF THE STRAWBERRY PATCH

ICON was proud to be the Presenting Sponsor of the 2020 Strawberry Season at Crossnore School and Children’s Home. With 22,000 berries, it was their longest season ever. The strawberry harvest continues to be a gift to our community year after year. We’re pleased to share their kind words: 

We were so thankful for our partnership with ICON Builders and their gracious financial support. As we learned well this year, farming has its risks – pests, uncooperative weather and, this year, a global pandemic. But with ICON Builder’s support, we were able to have a successful season. 

And they have high hopes for next year! Read the full article here.

RECIPES FOR A BEAUTIFUL KITCHEN

Designing a kitchen that’s equally functional and beautiful seems like a huge undertaking. But with a little help from design experts, it doesn’t have to be! Winston-Salem Monthly spoke with a few local designers, including our project and design coordinator, Katherine Yeager. Check out the article to learn more about her creative process!

BUILDING A BETTER COMMUNITY

We are proud of our very own Doug Johnson who has dedicated time to help City with Dwellings with a renovation project. This December, the Community First Center is moving to 520 North Spring Street. The expanded 4500 sq. ft. Center will serve as a warm and welcoming gathering space for people of diverse backgrounds – “from those experiencing homelessness, individuals recently housed, and those in the community who have never experienced homelessness.” Thank you, Doug, for helping with this project – one that will foster engagement, encourage a sense of belonging, and positively impact our community.

HOUZZ HELPS PLAN FOR THE HOLIDAYS!

Houzz published a holiday season planning guide, with some helpful tips and tricks to get your home ready for guests! Pictured first is owner Chuck Hicks’ festive back porch, a project that ICON completed to create additional space for entertaining.

When prepping your home for the holidays, make it cozy. The article recommends: “Arrange your furniture for entertaining and add seasonal touches to your living areas and porch. Make sure your fireplace is in good working order and you’re stocked with firewood.” We couldn’t agree more!

Warm earthy tones, an outdoor fireplace, and a brightly lit Christmas tree make us say, “tis the season.” We hope you feel inspired, and we hope this planning guide will serve as a great resource when hosting family and friends.

From your ICON Custom Builders family – Happy hosting, happy Thanksgiving, and Merry (early) Christmas!

KITCHEN OF THE WEEK BY ICON ON HOUZZ!
