In honor of Father’s Day, we’ve curated a collection of outdoor living spaces, gamerooms and media rooms that are sure to be dad approved. As we celebrate Father’s Day, we tip our hats to all dads – especially the incredible fathers who have maintained and grown our family-owned company.
For more than 90 years, the commitment to provide a top-level product to our homeowners across all Drees locations has never wavered, a company value instilled by founder Theodore Drees in 1928. Not only did Theodore lay the foundation of a strong mission, vision and values that Drees Homes still stands by today, but he also began the legacy of a phenomenal group of homebuilding fathers that have since pushed the company from humble beginnings to new heights.
Throughout the years, Drees has been proud to build custom homes for thousands of fathers that share those same character traits of hard work, resilience, flexibility and perseverance that this company was built on. Those traits, especially on Father’s Day, should be celebrated with living spaces that dads love to come home to.
Brilliant Backyard Retreats
Drees’ outdoor living areas are sure to check off the boxes of any father’s wish list. Whether it’s the screened-in porch like the Branford in Raleigh’s Averette Ridge (top left), the multi-level magnificence of the Crestwood in Cincinnati’s Crooked Tree Preserve (bottom left) or the waterside lounge space of Eagle Landing’s Durbin II in Jacksonville (bottom middle), dad will have plenty of space to kick his feet up, relax by the fire or just take in the scenery of a starlit evening. And for fathers that love to do yard work, may we suggest aiming your zero-turn towards the five-acre home sites of Sudley Farm (top right) in Centreville, Virginia.
Marvelous Media Rooms
The growing popularity of a media room and gameroom is surely a move being led by Drees dads. Customized spaces with large televisions, projector screens and comfortable seating are becoming staples in Drees homes across the nation. Media rooms and gamerooms give dad the ultimate space to relax, catch a ballgame or watch a movie with the family. Popular media rooms can be found in the Lynmar II at Travisso in Austin, TX (top right), the Lauren II at Woodtrace in Houston, TX (bottom left) and the Elmsdale at Traditions in Nashville, TN (bottom right).
And with DreeSmart Technology, a state-of-the-art cabling system eliminates Wi-Fi dead spots, so your streaming services are crystal clear. Dad has the flexibility to control a number of things from the comfort of his smartphone, including adjusting the room temperature, controlling the lighting and locking the front door.
Relaxing Recreation Rooms
The most versatile space of a Drees home comes in many shapes and forms, yet has something for everyone, especially fathers. The finished lower recreation area, upper level gameroom, sunroom or bonus room really adds a comfortable, resourceful space to your already stunning abode. Featuring customized wet bars, wall accents, televisions and game options, your dad will be happy to kick off his shoes after a long day and relax in one of these rooms. The Vanderburgh in Cincinnati’s Heritage at Elliott Farm (top left), the Colton at Nashville’s Scale’s Farmstead (middle right) and the Palmetto at Jacksonville’s TrailMark (bottom left) are all diverse spaces that have been proven popular by many Drees dads.
From our Drees family to yours, happy Father’s Day!
Dads – thank you for providing us with the support, devotion and sacrifices it takes to be a great father. We hope your day is spent in the comfortable and relaxing spaces of your Drees home with your loved ones. Happy Father’s Day!
