Cultural Connections: Building Dreams with Capital Homes in Owasso

March 13, 2024

“A different language is a different view of life” — Federico Fellini.Owasso is a beautiful place that has grown tremendously, from undeveloped farms and prairies to wide streets with different stores and restaurants that make living here a unique adventure. When I first came to America a little over twenty years ago, I experienced a similar transformation. I spoke little English and was largely unfamiliar with many aspects of American culture. Time has passed, I can say without a doubt that Owasso is my home. I have my heart here, where my family and my dreams have become a reality in a place that is safe to have your kids growing up in excellent schools around people with positive values.There are so many things that I’ve learned in my seventeen years of working in customer service. New perspectives and a different language and culture have given me a great opportunity to provide for my family and help others explain situations and find solutions in their own language.I always tell people that I know more ways to say things in Spanish now than when I lived in Venezuela because during this journey, I have connected with so many people from different backgrounds and traditions that have only enriched my experience here. This is possible only because companies like Capital Homes have welcomed our voices to widen perspectives, empathize with others, and provide a better customer experience.Two years ago, my life changed, and we built our new home with Capital Homes. The experience was so easy and smooth. Their support in answering my questions and concerns on one of the most important investments one have was so remarkable that I spoke with my New Home Specialist and told him that I would love to come onboard to help others in the Hispanic community have that same experience when buying a house.Capital Homes has played an important part in the development of Owasso. I am thankful to have the privilege of working for a construction company that builds trust and makes beautiful houses where people create memories.- Isabel Vega-McCollum

Creating a Healthy Home Environment for Well-being: Tips & Tricks

March 5, 2024

As the saying goes, "home is where the heart is," but it's also where our health and well-being thrive. At Capital Homes, we understand the importance of creating a living space that promotes not just comfort and style, but also supports the health and happiness of the people living in it. Let's explore some key strategies for cultivating a healthy home environment that nurtures your well-being.Prioritize Indoor Air Quality: Indoor air quality can significantly impact our health, especially considering how much time we spend inside. Invest in high-quality air filters for your HVAC system, and consider incorporating indoor plants known for their air-purifying properties, such as peace lilies or bamboo plants. To find out more about which plants you might like, check out the link here for 20 of the best plants to use indoors. Proper ventilation is also crucial, so ensure your home has adequate airflow to prevent the buildup of indoor pollutants. When you buy or build with Capital Homes you'll find that all our homes are certified ENERGY STAR® meaning our homes provide a fresh-air system that controls the amount of outdoor air. Combining with a high-performance filter, this improves indoor air quality and reduces dust, pollen and other allergens. Read more by visiting Light: Incorporating natural light and elements of nature into your home can have a profound impact on your well-being. Maximize natural light by not covering up your windows but embracing the natural light that comes in. Also, try integrating natural materials, textures, and greenery into your home's interior design. Not only does this create a connection to the outdoors, but it also enhances your mood and is known to boost your productivity.Create Areas for Relaxation and Rest: Designate specific areas in your home for relaxation and calming activities. Whether it's a cozy reading nook by a window that brings in a lot of natural light or a bedroom with comfortable bedding and calming colors, having dedicated spaces for relaxation can help reduce stress and promote better sleep. And who doesn't agree with wanting more rest and better sleep?!Promote Physical Activity: Encourage physical activity within your home by designing spaces that inspire movement and exercise. Consider creating a home gym or workout area where you can easily engage in regular physical activities. Even simple additions like a yoga corner or a dance-friendly living room layout can make it easier to stay active and maintain a healthy lifestyle without having to leave the comfort of your home.Keep a Clean and Clutter-Free Environment:A cluttered and disorganized home can contribute to feelings of stress and anxiety. Make it a priority to keep your living spaces clean, tidy, and clutter-free. Implement storage solutions that help you stay organized and minimize clutter buildup. Regular cleaning routines not only maintain a visually appealing home but also contribute to a healthier indoor environment by reducing allergens and dust.At Capital Homes, we believe that your home should be your sanctuary that supports your overall well-being. By implementing these strategies for creating a healthy home environment, you can enhance the quality of life for you and your loved ones. If you're considering building a new home, we're here to help you create a home that promotes health, happiness, and harmony.
