Spring is here at Dunnavant Square !

Along with everything getting greener and fuller by the day, we have all kinds of birds singing and flying about. In less than 5 minutes, I counted 16 birds in the wetland behind our model home.

Speaking of getting greener, Dunnavant Square is the greenest community Thornton Homes has built. From the hardy shake shingles on the exterior to the extra R38 insulation in the attic, there are numerous green features and building practices that are environmentally friendly. If you want to support businesses that are working to protect the environment and save money at the same time, Thornton homes is one to put on you list.

For you, that means a better built home for less money. The lumber waste that is created from the building process is ground up on site and used as mulch around the property. That is only the beginning, Energy Star appliances, tank less hot water heater, heat pump, low flow faucets, just to mention a few products used in the homes here at Dunnavant Square.

The 5 plus acres of wetlands around the property, that the birds just love, will always be protected. So you will have the pleasure and delight of listening to the birds sing and frogs croke, for years to come. Here in the middle of all this nature are sidewalks with street lights that lead to stores and restaurants. Who said you can't have it all?
Come on out.... experience our community and the relaxed lifestyle it provides. See for yourself!
Open 10-5 Mon-Fir 1-5 Sat-Sun or Call me for an appointment to set a time that best suites you. Sarah McNeill 240-0137
