September Sub Luv Winner… DRUM ROLL!



Congrats to our September Sub Luv Winner…

Mario Barcelo

Mario Barcelo, Boise Concrete

Mario Barcelo with Boise Concrete is always spot on, he communicates very well.  If I need him, there isn’t any questions or excuses. He gets it done and with a great attitude. He appreciates us just as much as we value him. When Mario has an emergency that may delay him from getting to me, he calls to let me know before I call him. He goes to warranty calls on homes he didn’t even do and never complains. Best way to say it, Boise Concrete is an example everyone should follow.”  

– Craig Hatcher, CBH Homes Superintendent

A ‘swipe right’ for Boise!

We LOVE lists!

Who doesn’t?! To do lists, wish lists, grocery lists, the Most ‘Swiped Right’ College Campus lists…


Did you have to read that last one a couple times? Okay – if you don’t know what Tinder is, you might not get the ‘swipe right’ reference. No, this isn’t a blog about a Dating App. We won’t even go into the details of Tinder besides that a picture pops up on your phone, if you like it you swipe right, if you don’t, left! Pretty easy stuff.

Alright, where are we going with this? Huffington Post recently came out with the Top 25 Most ‘Swiped Right’ College Campuses, According to Tinder and guess what campus made the Top 10 for females… The one and only – BOISE STATE!!

Boise State University hit #7 of Campuses with Most Swiped Right Females!

Can we get a…


Yes there may be some speculation on the men to women ratio influencing the stats – but shoot, let us have our fun! Besides, any list wouldn’t change our feelings about Boise having some VERY beautiful ladies.

Maybe this makes you want to live in Boise… maybe if you’re a single male! It still makes you laugh a little though!

BSU #7

<3 one of those Boise (yes, I’m biased) State Females

It’s time to start packing – quick tips for a hassle free move.

Screen Shot 2015-08-20 at 3.39.21 PM

It’s time to start packing! 

Moving to a shiny, new, awesome CBH home is a big deal and we want to make it as seamless as possible. You’re been through our sales process, you’ve toured the Design Studio, you’ve been patiently waiting, and NOW the time has arrived for you to pack up and move into your dream home.

Housecall came up with a great list of tips for making your move easier and we could not wait another moment to share it with you. While we’ve condensed it down for you, click here to swing over and check out the full details.

  1. Find Freebies by searching craigslist or for moving boxes or containers to help your packing needs
  2. Pack your belongings with the unpacking mindset – pack the kitchen first and unpack the bedroom first, leaving the kitchen for last.
  3. Use color duct tape to color code boxes depending on the room they go to for each unpacking.
  4. Keep your clothes on hangers and cover with a black garage bag to save having to re-hang clothes
  5. Keep your mattresses clean by covering in older fitted sheets
  6. Wrap small-scale furniture in heavy duty plastic wrap vs. emptying all the drawers
  7. Tape screws and other smaller parts to furniture to the bottom of big pieces in ziplock bags
  8. Use socks to fill dead space in boxes (like breakables) to prevent damage
  9. Even out the weight in the moving truck with big, heavy items on both sides
  10. Be aware of gravity and place furniture with drawers toward the side to prevent spilling, and use tie-downs when necessary

That’s the quick scoop on just 10 easy ways to make packing and moving hassle-free.

We’re so excited for you to join the CBH family. If you have any other tips and tricks to share, swing over to our social media pages and tell us your favorite packing tip!

The Good Attitude Addendum


Happiness is not the absence of problems,


Do you wake up everyday,

and love what you do?

We do. And we want you to enjoy it just as much as we do! Which is why when we found this… we HAD, and we mean HAD to implement it into our contracts. A HUGE thanks to Garman Homes for sharing this with us!

Here we go – we want our home buyers to have the BEST buying experience and feel that in order for this to happen, CBH and our home buyers need to follow the Good Attitude Addendum. What’s that you ask? Here’s the sweet, short, all the good stuff version:

  1. HAVE A GOOD ATTITUDE. The end. We insist that employees, vendors, everyone we come in contact with have a good attitude.
  2. Expect for the unknown. We’ve built thousands of homes, yet things will happen that no one can anticipate. If we all bring a good attitude, the unknowns are more bearable.
  3. Expect to make decisions quickly. We’re on a 5-6 month build schedule. Yes, we’ll ask you to pick all your interior selections at one appointment. Trust yourself, you have good taste – you picked us for goodness sakes!
  4. If it’s not on your plans or in your paperwork, it won’t be in your house. If you mentioned it, posted it on Facebook, told the Pope – it doesn’t count unless it makes it into your paperwork, plans and you autograph it. So make the time to review these items carefully.
  5. Good communication is essential. Don’t assume we know what you’re thinking and NEVER apologize for asking questions. We want to know, just be gentle, our work is very personal to us.
  6. Mistakes are going to happen – prep now. Even if your paperwork and plans are 100% complete and accurate, mistakes happen and happen all the time. We DO promise to be honest and sincere and to work things out together. Remember we’re all on the same team!
  7. A good attitude is all it takes to get to the bottom of most problems. Believe in us, we believe in you.

Won’t you join us?

Join us in the process of a happy building experience?

Join us in making dreams come true?

With the right attitude, anything is possible.

Happy BUyers
