We had an exciting and busy year in our communities this year! Here is an end-of-year wrap-up for each of our neighborhoods.

Lake Breeze

We are down to our last available home in Phase II. The beautiful, movie-in-ready home sits on top of a hill overlooking Phase III. It also has a large, flat backyard ready for play dates and BBQ’s. Down the road, Phase III got off to a bang in early 2022 and we now have 15 new homes in all stages of construction. All are available to purchase with lender incentives available to qualifying home buyers.
Then – in July – the good folks at St Jude approached us to be the Chattanooga St Jude Dream Home builder! What an honor! The 2023 Dream Home is nearly half-way completed on homesite #124. We can’t wait to invite everyone to tour the home in May and June.


Hawks Landing

Plans are in the making for launching Phase IV with larger home sites – some big enough for 3 car garages – in 2023. Stay tuned to for the latest information. Preliminary plat map should be coming soon!

Most Popular Core Home Plans for 2022

2022 year image for Dec blogAs the Christmas season is fully upon us, we – like other folks and companies – are taking a breath and looking back at 2022. It was quite the roller coaster ride for everyone – especially for those of us in the homebuilding industry!
What did we accomplish? How did we grow? And what do we want to improve on in 2023?


So – what were the most popular Core home plans in 2022?
Below are the top three, determined by which plan home buyers chose the most.
And the winners are…


Chattanooga home builder Core Homes Willow home plan imageThe Willow
3 bedrooms 3.5 baths
2,702 sq ft
Oversized Formal Dining and Breakfast Rooms, Flex Space, Bonus Room, Large Porches on front and rear
If your home tends to be the “destination” of friends and family vacations to our Scenic City or all of the kids are still at home and desperately need their own spaces – The Willow home plan beautifully serves as the heart and hub of your life.
The Willow plan was developed specifically for the Hawks Landing community. Look for it to be a home buyer favorite when we open Hawk’s Landing Phase IV in 2023.

3 bedrooms 2.5 baths
2,716 sq ft
Open Concept, Large Bonus Room, Walk-In-Closets
So much space – so many possibilities for a personalized, unique living space. Upstairs in the more private spaces or down in the hustle and bustle of the main living area – The Foxglove home plan lets you “breathe” no matter where you are in your home.
The classically appealing Foxglove plan can be built in Hawks Landing in Apison or Lake Breeze in Harrison. Since both of those communities have new phase either now selling or planned in the future, we’ll be seeing a lot more of The Foxglove!

LL4 Victoria Chattanooga home builder Core Homes home plan imageThe Victoria
3 bedrooms 3.5 baths
2,652 sq ft
Open Concept Main Living Area, Bonus Room, Home Office/Flex Space
The grand dame of Core Homes’ home plans! This is an original! If comfortable chic is your style – you need to take a look at The Victoria home plan. The Victoria is currently being built on Lost Lake home site #37 with a third car garage. It’s also being built on Lake Breeze home site #133. Both homes are available to purchase!

These are just three of the three dozen home plans available at Core Homes. Take a look at all of the plans we offer, and we’re sure you’ll find one that fits your dreams perfectly!
