JUNE 12-28, 2015

The 2015 Homearama Touring Edition presented by Vectren will kick off on Friday, June 12 and showcase homes and communities throughout the Miami Valley. The featured HBA of Dayton Builders and Developers are pleased to present these new homes for the first - and possibly only - time. Many of the homes have already been sold so this will be the only chance for the public to view.

While touring Homearama houses, attendees will have an opportunity to participate in seminars offered by Deceuninck, Grandma's Gardens and local designer Debbie Sykes. Deceuninck's Clubhouse Decking will provide information on the advantages of low maintenance outdoor living, Grandma's Gardens will showcase landscaping options and Debbie Sykes will host "It's All About Color." Guests are encouraged to ask questions of the experts.

Guests can purchase tickets for $12 at local Krogers stores, online at DaytonHomearama.com or by downloading the free Dayton Homearama Touring Edition mobile app with their smartphone. The Dayton Homearama app is available through the iTunes store or Google Play. Walk ups without tickets will be charged $14 at the doors of Homearama homes; all guests over the age of five years must have a ticket to enter.

The Homearama Touring Edition ticket is good for one visit to each Homearama house and a repeat visit to two guest-selected Homearama homes. The tickets will also allow entry to Dayton Dwell: A Celebration of Home from June 19-21 at the historic Hook Estate. Dayton Dwell will feature Heritage Ohio's Old House Fair and the Tiny House Jamboree. Over the course of the three days Dayton Dwell will feature live demonstrations and tours with home preservation seminars, vendors with products or services and the historic home and grounds of the Hook Estate. The Tiny House Jamboree will feature professional Tiny House builders who will camp their homes at the Hook Estate and open their doors for tiny tours. Many of the Tiny House builders will also speak throughout the weekend about the ins and outs of living small.

In addition to sixteen amazing Homearama homes to tour and the festivities of Dayton Dwell: A Celebration of Home, for the first time, the Dayton Homearama will feature the People's Choice Awards presented by 84 Lumber and ticket purchasers are encouraged to vote for their favorites. Attendees can vote for homes in six different categories using the Dayton Homearama Touring Edition mobile app or online at DaytonHomearama.com. The winners of the People's Choice Awards presented by 84 Lumber will be announced in July by the Home Builders Association of Dayton and 84 Lumber and presented to the Builders with the most votes.

Please contact the Home Builders Association of Dayton at 937.298.2900, ext. 1 to purchase bulk orders of tickets for a discounted price.


HBA of Dayton Announces Leadership Departure

(12/23/14) Walt Hibner has announced his upcoming departure as the Executive Director of the Home Builders Association of Dayton.  Walt has been the Executive Director since May of 2007, leading the organization through some of the most challenging times in the history of the home building industry.  

The HBA of Dayton Board of Directors has assembled an Executive Director Search Committee and is currently reviewing applications and scheduling final interviews.


BRENTWOOD BUILDERS, INC. is a full service building company, providing both renovation and new construction. We are primarily involved in construction management and design/build. With either approach, our function is the same, working with our clients as a team member to provide organization and site supervision for the complete project. Our specific goal on each project is three fold: to complete the project on time, on budget, and according to specifications.

The company was established in 1979 and incorporated in April, 1990. Early in the 1980s, president and founder. M. Joseph Harkleroad, became increasingly convinced that a construction management format would be more beneficial to clients, and was more consistent with his vision of serving them. As a natural outgrowth of the type of projects in which we are involved, we have established and are actively developing three divisions within the company: commercial, residential and remodeling. Each division has project managers knowledgeable of the particular requirements of that division.

Over the years, Brentwood has grown from the vision of one individual to include a team of skilled, knowledgeable, experienced personnel who can manage a wide diversity of construction projects. What hasn't changed over the quarter century of its existence is Brentwood's commitment to ensuring its clients receive a top quality product for the best value, and the commitment to delighting the client with the process as well as the product.

Brentwood has become known for our ability to deliver projects that are both diverse and complex in nature. Since 1979, we have assisted clients with a wide range of projects including commercial, residential and institutional, as well as campus development.
