Hayden Homes Largest Kennewick Community Set to Sell Out

Bridgewater Park Community Logo- NEWBridgewater Park is the largest new home community that Hayden Homes built in beautiful Kennewick, Washington.  With only 2 homes remaining, the community is set to sell out by June of 2016 thanks to a committed team of  Construction & Community Managers and over 150 Happy Hayden Homeowners.

Opened in 2011 and developed by Hayden Homes, this convenient and affordable new home community was the largest of many for Hayden Homes in the Kennewick, Washington area. The community is located in a desirable part of West Kennewick off Clearwater and Utah nestled within a conveniently located, highly desirable neighborhood, with easy access to shopping, and the freeway.

In October 2014, one of the homes in Bridgewater Park was dedicated to a FIRST STORY FAMILY! First Story’s dedication in Kennewick was received by Kenneth & Jolene Smith and their two kiddos. They were referred to us by their Realtor, who recognized the family’s need for an affordable housing opportunity after they realized they were outgrowing their current rental home in Burbank, and weren’t sure Kenny’s income would afford them a new home.  The Smith’s home marked the 50th home built by First Story which was established by Hayden Homes in 1998.

An affordable place to call home, Bridgewater Park provides its homeowners prime location in the flourishing city of Kennewick.

Congratulations to all!

Opened in 2014 and developed by Hayden Homes, this convenient and affordable new home community was the first of many for Hayden Homes in the Medford area. The community is located on Compton Way and is nestled within a beautifully kept, well-established neighborhood, with easy access to shopping and the freeway.

They were referred to us by the Jackson County Housing Authority where they had just spent 2 years completing their self-sufficiency & home buyer programs. Both of their families live in Southern Oregon…the grandparents were at the dedication. The boys all love to play baseball, but one of the son’s has an eye disease which has caused him to lose his sight. His brothers watch out for him; they are a close bunch.

An affordable place to call home, this community provides its homeowners plenty of space for picnics and other fun activities.

Congratulations to all!

Hayden Homes Dream Backyard Giveaway: Let the Designing Begin!

Follow the Labelle’s Backyard Transformation

The $25,000 dream backyard planning is officially underway! Hayden Homes CEO Dennis Murphy visited our Corbin Crossing community in Hayden, Idaho, Sunday, Dec. 6, to sit down with the lucky winner, Tyler Labelle and his wife Paula, to bounce around some initial ideas.

Dream Backyard
CEO, Dennis Murphy and the Labelle’s Designing their Dream Backyard!

Since moving into their new Hayden Home earlier this year, the Labelles have not yet done any landscaping in their back yard, leaving basically a blank slate to work with. On their backyard wish list is a barbecue island with pizza oven, covered patio and trellis, play structure for their two young children, patio heaters to keep warm during the cool North Idaho springs and summer evenings, and a garden shed.

Dennis jotted down their ideas, as well as some suggestions    of his own, including landscape lighting and patio pavers, and penciled out a preliminary sketch of the Labelles’ soon-to-be dream backyard. Now, as the Labelles finalize their ideas and plans, it’s a waiting game for spring to come!

In the meantime, Dennis left Tyler and Paula with a couple of his favorite landscaping books on Pacific Northwest gardens to help the lucky winners choose some beautiful shrubs and plants to help their back yard come alive.

The Labelle's Backyard Before
The Labelle’s Backyard Before.

Stay tuned for this spring, when we anxiously watch as the Labelles’ back yard transforms into their dream
come true!

We will be sharing images throughout makeover through the Labelle’s first party in their new backyard.
Follow us as this yard become the stuff of dreams!

Tyler Labelle wins the $25,000 Dream Backyard Giveaway!

Tyler Labelle thought he was meeting his parents as they shopped for a new home in his Hayden Homes neighborhood, Corbin Crossing. Instead he was surprised by an entourage of people, balloons, cheers and champagne as Hayden Homes announced him winner of the $25,000 Dream Backyard Giveaway.

Labelle’s name was drawn from among thousands who entered at Hayden Homes’ neighborhoods and on the company website throughout the summer. The Post Falls native purchased a home from Hayden Homes in Corbin Crossing in July. His parents helped Hayden Homes plan the surprise presentation by telling Tyler they were interested in visiting the model home and making an appointment.

“That’s a lot of money and this whole thing is very surreal,” said Tyler Labelle after being stunned with the good news. His wife, Paula, already has great ideas for their dream backyard space.

The Labelle’s will work with Hayden Homes Chief Executive Officer Dennis Murphy to design their outdoor space beginning with a meeting next month. “It will be a fun process helping them define their dream. It could be anything from a super-sized play area for the kids, to a gazebo, seating area and kitchen,” said Murphy. Plans will progress through the winter so crews can begin work on the Dream Backyard next spring.

Tyler Labelle is a Post Falls native and veteran of the United States Air Force who served an active tour of duty in Afghanistan in 2011. He and his wife have two young children. Labelle is now employed as a CAD designer. In addition to being a busy employee, father and husband –he is continuing his education.
