Tim O’Brien Homes Goes for The Green at 2014 Parade Of Homes

July 31, 2014

Tim O’Brien Homes, Inc., a semi-custom, single-family homebuilder with offices in Milwaukee and Madison, will welcome visitors to its 2014 Parade of Homes model and encourage them to “go for the green” and earn a chance to win tickets to the 2015 PGA Championship at Whistling Straits in Kohler, Wis.

Done in conjunction with Kohler Co., Tim O’Brien Homes will feature a putting green in the model home’s lower level. Parade of Homes attendees who make a putt or a chip in the Kohler toilet will be registered to win a pair of tickets to the 2015 PGA Championship and other Kohler prizes, including a Kohler dual-flush toilet; Nightlight Kohler’s lighted toilet seats; a Kohler cooler and umbrella; and a Tim O’Brien Homes golf basket – 10 prizes in all. The display area will also feature a variety of Kohler products, including the WaterSense®, touchless toilet technology in the Cimarron® toilet, and other energy-efficient products.

“We are excited to partner with Kohler Co. on what we know will be an exciting attraction for our Parade of Home model,” said Tim O’Brien, president of Tim O’Brien Homes. “In addition to this contest, visitors will be able to learn more about our company’s commitment to ‘green’ building with displays showcasing our energy-efficient details.”

The Monterey, a two-story French country style home named by Tim O’Brien Homes Facebook fans, is located in the Pewaukee neighborhood of Victoria Station. The 2014 Parade of Homes entry is nearly 2,500 square feet, with 13 total rooms, including four bedrooms, two-and-a-half baths, a two-story foyer, and a three-car garage.

The home’s exterior features carriage-style garage doors, shake siding, decorative windows with accented shutters, and a dramatic roof flair over the foyer. The interior offers an open concept design, including a gourmet kitchen, a great room with a vaulted ceiling and a raised hearth with stone detail, WaterSense® plumbing fixtures, and an elegant master bedroom suite.

In addition to the putting green, the lower level will have Tim O’Brien Homes green features, with members of the construction team available to answer questions regarding the “behind-the-wall” energy-efficient products incorporated into the project. There will also be a solar display that highlights how each Tim O’Brien Home is built roughed-in for solar.
