Building Full Circle
Life is an interesting journey. You never know where it will take you. Such was the case for Cindy Cameron, a realtor licensed in Pennsylvania and New Jersey, and a longtime client of Webb Building Group, Inc.
Cindy first met Brian J. Webb in 1998. She was a salesperson and Brian was a builder for one of the nation’s largest homebuilders. “We worked on a community called Doylestown Station, which is located in Doylestown Township,” Cindy says.
Years went by, and in 2010, Cindy decided that her current Furlong development home no longer suited her needs. “My husband had passed away. Brian sent me a letter. He said that if there was anything he could ever do just call. At this point Brian and his brother Jim owned their own building firm, Webb Building Group.”
In 2011, Cindy saw that the townhome was still available. “I came in and bought the property as a realtor representing myself. It was in very poor condition. In today’s real estate market, the homes that are selling are the ones in mint condition. I am a single woman, and I knew that if I had to depend on a company doing the job right it had to be Webb Building Group. I picked up the phone, and said, “I am making the call.” Brian was on my doorstep the next day,” Cindy says.
Cindy had a challenge for Webb Building Group—to renovate the townhome within 30 days. She brought the designer plans and paint schemes—burnt oranges, beiges, and blues—from her custom Furlong home at Bridge Valley to recreate at the Doylestown Station property. “The Bruce hardwood floors were 2 ¼ inches wide, ¾ inches thick. I wanted to rip out the original floors because the owner had cats. Webb Building Group had to come in and disinfect the entire home to get the odor out. They convinced me not to take the floors out, but to sand them down and refinish them. I had never seen that done before. I selected the stain,” Cindy says.
Webb Building Group, Inc. made the 14-year-old home brand new. “All of the door knobs and lighting were changed. It was custom painted. Crown molding was installed in the living room. There is shadow boxing in the dining room and foyer. All of the carpeting was replaced. The kitchen island countertop was removed and replaced with a black granite top. It was extended so that I could put bar stools underneath. Pendant lighting was added above the island. The two bathrooms also were updated,” Cindy says.
“I love my master bath. It is my pride and joy. The shower was built out and made larger. I have a frameless shower door. There is new ceramic tile and flooring. We selected higher height cherry vanities that match my bedroom set. And there are mirrors and lighting above the granite countertops,” Cindy says.
On January 12, Cindy had a house warming get-together. “People saw my townhome and said that this is so much nicer than my previous home in Furlong. The realtor who listed the home could not believe the amazing transformation. Webb Building Group is a phenomenal. They offer the highest quality work,” Cindy says.
Joe Spallone of Webb Building Group’s media marketing office team recently conducted a video conference with Cindy Cameron about the project at her Doylestown Station home. Watch the video here. “It was an interesting evolution from 1998 to 2011. The amazing thing is that I sold this home that I am living in to the original owner. And the guy that built these homes ended up coming back and doing these renovations—Brian Webb and the expert team at Webb Building Group,” Cindy says.
“We just moved into our new house, and we love it. Four bedrooms, a finished basement with a bar, two and a half baths. The open floor plan downstairs—flowing from the living room to the breakfast area to the spacious kitchen that I love to cook in. And, of course, our covered front and back porches. It is awesome !.”
Those are the words of Buckingham Township resident Bob Molle. On September 29, 2011, Bob and his wife Loretta watched as their home of 18 years was destroyed by fire. The tragedy followed with months of dealing with overwhelming red tape. In late November, Jim and Brian J. Webb, Principals of Webb Building Group, Inc., met with the family to discuss rebuilding their colonial home and getting their lives back together.
“When we met with the Molles, their house had been sitting for months after the fire as it had not been demolished yet. Next door, the house that started the fire also sat, with a car burned out in the driveway. The neighborhood was so pleased that we were there to help,” says Jim Webb.
“We wanted to keep everything local. The Webb Building Group had come highly recommended. I sat down and met with the Webbs and knew right away they were the company we wanted. They were community guys. Their kids played locally in some of the same sports my kids played in,” says Bob Molle.
Webb Building Group, Inc. went through every detail with the Molles—securing permits, selecting materials, implementing a whole-house fire sprinkler system. Kenneth Stewart of Empowered Learning: Training & Safety Services filmed a documentary of the rebuilding, from the day after the fire to late July 2012 when the Molles finally moved in. This footage will be used for a firefighter training program on new home construction.
“This has been such a rewarding experience for our company. The Molles have been through so much. It is nice to see them get their life back together,” says Jim Webb.
