For builder, this Homearama house is the Cherry on top

All American Homearama wouldn't be the same without veteran builder Chip Iuliano of ABT Custom Homes of Suffolk.

"Some might call me crazy," Iuliano said. "I think these shows are great."

Iuliano's work has been featured in more than 20 Homearama houses since 1992. He has chaired the event twice and won more Critics' Choice and People's Choice awards than any other builder in Hampton Roads.

He was also president of Tidewater Builders Association in 2004.

"I guess you can say I love doing this," he said. "It's a great way to stay connected to what people want and need."

This year is no exception. Iuliano's house, The Cherry Blossom, is No. 3 on the tour. It offers the usual ABT touches, he said, including multimedia gadgets and environmentally friendly features. The home is 3,380 square feet with five bedrooms, 3 1/2 baths and a screening room.

The Made In America House by Vintage Homes

Homearama builder goes for all-American materials

T.E. Jones knelt and grabbed the open box of drywall screws, printed with the words "Made in America" next to an image of a rippling Stars and Stripes.

The homebuilder paid roughly $235 for the box - nearly $200 more than he would spend on a typical box of screws from China.

Throughout the Chesapeake house a few weeks ago, windows, water pipes and drywall all had labels touting that they were domestically made.

To support U.S. manufacturers, Jones is the latest among homebuilders across the country trying to build a house solely with domestically made products. His house will be featured in the next Homearama, the Tidewater Builders Association's semiannual showcase of new dwellings. This one will be held in June at the Culpepper Landing community.

For Jones, who's been in the business for five years, the building process has never been so painstaking. He said he's had to completely rethink how he puts together a home.

By Staci Dennis

A few decades ago, a parcel of land in the heart of Chesapeake's Deep Creek was Tim Culpepper's childhood playground.

As a young boy, he explored the area that butted up against the Great Dismal Swamp. He spen t his summers hunting, fishing, camping and riding his bike through some of the 488 acres that his family owned.

"In the summer, we would pick watermelons and cantaloupe to sell," said Culpepper, who graduated from Deep Creek High School in 1989. "It seemed like there was always something to do on the farm."

Tucked away about two miles south of Interstate 64 in Deep Creek, developers have begun work on a community aimed at the current sweet spot of the new homes market: price-conscious buyers.

Culpepper Landing, a 488-acre project of Robinson Development Group between the edges of the Great Dismal Swamp and its canal, has homes with prices that start at about $234,000 for a 1,400-square-foot rowhouse and go up to a little more than $500,000.

The strategy seems to be working. So far this year sales and interest have been strong at the community, said Tim Culpepper, vice president of Robinson Development.
