Introducing The Mayberry

By Megan Honeysett, in Branch Out

The Mayberry  - Elevation B
We are proud to introduce the newest floor plan to the Schell Brothers’ line up, the Mayberry. This floor plan includes up to five bedrooms, a versatile flex room, and a spacious kitchen that opens to the great room and dining area. The design features a vaulted ceiling and picture windows, which create a bright open feeling in your main living space.
The Mayberry is designed similar to one of most popular floor plans, the Mulberry. Offering numerous structural selections that allow you to personalize the floor plan, you can make it your own.
If you love to entertain, you may want to consider adding the wet bar option in the great room. Want to “wow” your guests? You should check out our brand new furniture vanity collection that many homeowners are adding to their powder rooms and luxury baths.
The dedicated mud room is one of our new favorite selections, providing a separate place in your home to drop your keys, kick off your flip flops, and sort through the mail without a the reminder of the dirty pile of clothes in your laundry room.
The Mayberry floor plan is a result of valuable feedback from our customers and for that reason we expect it to become one of our most popular floor plans. Fortunately, the home is available in many of our communities and fits on most size and shaped homesites.
Interested in a personal tour of the Mayberry before it’s built? You can stop by The Coffee House, located at 18 Rehoboth Avenue, and take advantage of our newest technology that allows you to take a 3D virtual tour of the Mayberry and other popular floor plans. We can’t wait to hear what you think of our newest plan.

Difference in the Details – MERV 14 Air Filters

By Megan Honeysett, in All Communities

Did you know the Environmental Protection Agency ranks indoor air quality one of the greatest but least recognized risks to public health?
Most existing, and even some new homes, contain materials that emit harmful chemical pollutants. At Schell Brothers, we take this risk very seriously and have included numerous features and construction techniques in our homes to ensure a healthy environment for our homeowners and their families.
‘Cold weather makes you sick’ is the number one health myth during the winter season.  But actually, germs are what make us sick and air filters remove these yucky germs from the air. That’s why at Schell Brothers we install advanced filters in our homes.
Pop Quiz! What does MERV stand for? Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value or MERV is a number from 1 to 16 that is relative to an air filters efficiency (the size of it’s hole in the filter that allows the air to pass through).
A typical residential filter is less than MERV 5 and unlike your golf score, the higher the score the better. We use MERV 14 air filters, which are rated high enough to be used in hospitals! So take a deep breath and relax. We’re committed to helping you and your family breathe easier.

Difference in the Details discusses the advanced building techniques Schell Brother uses in order to build our homes. Each post will feature a new element of our Schellter Advanced Building Science and how we use smart technology to provide you with the ultimate high performance home.
