Help Gary Make a Wish Come True

Gary Grambley, Sterling Custom Homes’ sales director, will soon pound the pavement to better the lives of children with life-threatening diseases. He will participate in the San Antonio Rock & Roll Marathon as a platform to raise money for the Make-A-Wish Foundation® of Central and South Texas.

The Make-A-Wish Foundation® of Central and South Texas is also near and dear to the hearts of his employer, Sterling Custom Homes. The Austin luxury real estate builder is showing its support for Grambley and the foundation by pledging to match Grambley’s fundraising efforts up to $2,500.

Sterling Custom Homes also donated to the foundation earlier this year. The builder gave $1 per new Facebook “Like” from its fan page (http://www.facebook.com/sterlingcustomhomes), up to 300 new fans.

Since 1980, the Make-A-Wish Foundation® (http://www.wish.org/) has been enhancing the lives of children suffering from life-threatening medical conditions through the granting of wishes. The Foundation is composed of nearly 25,000 volunteers, enabling the non-profit to grant a wish every 40 minutes.

Grambley’s goal is to raise $5,000, the amount of money it takes to grant one child a wish. “Training for a marathon is a long, difficult endeavor,” said Grambley. “Knowing that my efforts will benefit a child in need will provide me with an added incentive when I hit the road for the 16, 18 and 20 plus mile training runs.”

Sterling Custom Homes Develops Unique Driveway Application

Sterling Custom Homes has been dedicated to developing and refining its custom home processes for more than 20 years. The attention to detail put forth by the Austin home builder has most recently led to a new technique that gives driveways a beautiful and unified finishing touch.

“So many times it doesn’t cost any more to implement a change like the driveway/garage apron improvement,” said Vick Pope, vice president of construction at Sterling Custom Homes. “It only requires the desire to constantly improve, and the mindset that never accepts things as the way they’ve always been done.”

In other methods of construction, driveway material is poured only to the exterior of the garage apron. leaving an exposed joint where the driveway meets this foundation. The driveway and foundation are often made with two different finishes, which throws off the driveway’s continuity. This exposed joint is seen when the garage door is closed.

Sterling Custom Homes’ new and improved process leaves garages and driveways with a seamless flow from the driveway to the foundation of the Austin luxury real estate.

During this process, the builder drops the foundation at the garage apron and allows the finished layer of driveway material to end where the garage door meets the concrete. This method gives the two a seamless flow and a professionally finished look.

Sterling Custom Homes understands the importance that new home buyers place on detail, and demonstrates the level of care it takes to design custom homes to suit individuals’ needs. The builder offers design solutions for all buyers from site selection all the way down to details like driveway construction.
