Spring Tour of Homes

Spring 15

Welcome to the Huntsville/Madison County Builders Association’s 29th annual Spring Tour of HomesSM. For those of you who attended for the first time we thank you, and hope to see you again.  For the thousands of you who attend year after year, we also thank you, and hope your experience this year was as good as years past. We are confident it was.

An array of housing types from single-family homes and patio homes to town homes will be featured in the TourSM with prices ranging from $199,900 to $1,250,000.  64 beautiful new homes will be on display throughout the Madison and Limestone County area offering a variety of life styles, floor plans and amenities.

Our local housing market continues to be strong overall. House values continue to increase, thereby, validating the fact that buying a home is the best long term investment you can make for you and your family. And with interest rates at all-time lows, the future of home ownership has never looked better.

April 18 – 19, 2015

Happy Pi Day!

home-three

Pi Day is celebrated on March 14th (3/14) around the world. Pi (Greek letter “π”) is the symbol used in mathematics to represent a constant — the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter — which is approximately 3.14159.

Pi has been calculated to over one trillion digits beyond its decimal point. As an irrational and transcendental number, it will continue infinitely without repetition or pattern. While only a handful of digits are needed for typical calculations, Pi’s infinite nature makes it a fun challenge to memorize, and to computationally calculate more and more digits.

2014 Maple Hill Cemetery Stroll

Don’t miss the pilgrimage to this year’s
Maple Hill Cemetery Stroll

On Sunday, October 12th, from 2 to 4:30 pm, you too can take the journey back in time to this sacred place. The Stroll is a North Alabama tradition, and for 18 years it has been bringing history alive in the oldest and largest municipal cemetery in continuous operation in the South.

Once again, there will be over 70 costumed actors depicting historic characters, as well as special exhibits and traditional music. Most of your favorite characters are returning, while others will be making their first appearance. Many of the exhibits will enhance some of the living history presentations, while others will highlight some of our recent restoration projects, including the beautiful wrought and cast iron fencing surrounding many of the burial plots. Again, old time melodies will fill the air as you stroll …
