Here at CBH Homes, we have a passion for reading, learning, growing and loving. Recently, one of our CBH team members and her sisters wrote an alphabet book about manners. They wanted all littles to know the importance of treating others with kindness, while learning to read. This book is called The Three Squirrels Alphabet Book about Manners!
Three Squirrels Book of Manners
CBH Homes loved the book SO much we decided to donate more than 5,000 books to local elementary schools that our CBH Homes feed in to!
We’ve had so much fun visiting our new friends! Our favorite quotes about manners from the kinders so far have been:
“Manners are being nice”
“Manners are helping someone”
“Manners are giving hugs”
“Manners are loving them”
We’re so grateful!
We are so grateful for opportunity to bring happiness to so many kiddo’s across the valley, and for Steph Sorenson, one of the authors of the book and CBH employee!
We have delivered to 1,022 elementary school Kindergartners so far, so we have roughly 4,000 to go!!

We can’t wait to keep you updated on our squirrely journey.

We absolutely love the spookiest month of the year. With pumpkins, bonfires, cider, fall puns and a new home, who could not be happy?
WAIT… how rude – we forgot to introduce ourselves.
It’s CeCe, Kaitlyn and Arie here, we are too cute to spook.. 😉
This week, we jumped in our cars, played our CBH Spooky playlist (have a listen here) and hit the town to explore the best Fall activities near our communities. We have been jumping with excitement to share with you!
Here are our top 6 fall activities you won’t want to miss this Fall season. Let’s kick it off with our Nampa / Caldwell Locations.
This place is so very frightful. They have perfected the art of fear….yikes but so much fun! It’s located 4 minutes, I REPEAT ONLY four minutes away from our Virginia Park community, which has 4 homes available and 13 home sites available! (YES!) So take a tour of our cute community and then head to Haunted World for the best scream of your life!
Don’t forget to stop by Linder Farms. Only 12 minutes from our Brinegar community in Meridian, which has 12 available homes! There’s a pumpkin patch, corn maze, and many more activities for the whole family. Perfect for getting your fall fix!
It’s just a bunch of hocus pocus… or is it? This is a night you will not want to miss. Join hundreds of witch clad women in a night of music, fun and prizes to raise awareness for domestic abuse. Did we mention that our Golden Grove community is only 10 minutes away? 10 minutes away from the greatest fun of fall and there are 8 homes available!
Pumpkins Pumpkins and more Pumpkins! What more could you want? After touring our Fallbrook community (with 17 homes available!!!), head on over to Jeremy’s Pumpkins and pick out your perfect pumpkin. PS it’s only a 6 minute drive!

with Silvercreek Realty Group
Lets get to know Richard and why we LOVE him:
How long have you been selling real estate? 11 Years
What’s your #1 tip to buying a new home? Work with a reputable builder who stands behind their product.
What do you love about CBH? As an agent, I love working with CBH because of the incredible communication provided by all of the sales teams and the seamless processes they have in place that make the experience for my buyers positive from beginning to end.
What do you love about real estate? Getting to be involved in such pivotal transitions in people’s lives. The grateful, and excited, first time home buyers. The growing family, finding the home they’re going to raise their kids in. The empty nesters who have made it and are looking forward to the slow down, and everything in between.
Favorite area in the Treasure Valley? You can’t beat the south Meridian area. It’s centrally located and you can be anywhere you need to be in 20 minutes or less.
What is on your bucket list? Salmon fishing trip in Alaska.
Thanks to Realtors like Richard, we’re able to continue to grow and build dreams. We couldn’t have done it without them. A big giant thank you from the CBH Crew!

Are you ready to live local? Are you ready to live LOCALE?
*CAN WE GET A DRUM ROLL PLEASE?!*
We have some VERY exciting news. Like on the edge of our seat, twiddling our fingers EXCITING news. CBH has a new, fresh community coming down the line!
We know what you’re thinking, CBH has new communities all the time, what’s so special about this one? Imagine a place close to the things you love to do, close to the places you want to be, and the life you want to live.
This place is Locale. (Pronounced Lo-Cal)
What is Locale?
Locale is our new master planned community in South Boise. This community will bring a new and fresh vibe to South Cole promoting local living and featuring amenities encouraging residents to go out and have fun. Think of large parks, trails for walking/biking, a community center, pool and more fun amenities. With multiple freeway access points you’re just about 3 turns from everything; Downtown Boise, Lucky Peak, the foothills plus more.
“This is a community of the future and we are excited for what this will bring to the South Cole area. Locale brings you close to the things you love to do and close to the places you want to be. Families won’t want to live anywhere else.” – Corey Barton
Locale will span from Cole toward Orchard with over 2,000 family homes, estate homesites, townhomes and… MORE! We like to call it the Disneyland of communities… No, we’re not kidding! As we continue to grow, picture corner stores, an elementary school, a new high school, a place you can really grow into and of course LOVE IT.
What’s next for Locale?
We will start breaking ground this fall, with the first homes available in Spring 2019. Phase One will include the community center and begin along the corner of Lake Hazel and Cole. The design and style of homes will bring a fresh, modern farmhouse look to the area.
CBH Homes is excited to launch new elevations and floor plans for Locale. Corey Barton says it best, “We want the people to come live here, and stay here.”
We couldn’t have said it any better, CB!
Hear it from the man himself and catch Corey in the State of 208 HERE!
WHY: To celebrate our new favorite community, with YOU!
ACTIVITIES: Think FALL! Hot chocolate bar + Pumpkin coloring contest + pumpkin picking + MORE!
What’s on the menu: Soup Kettle Grille serving 3 different Soups with an assortment of Hot and Cold sandwiches!
3 REASONS why we’re that obsessed with Goldengrove:
LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION. It’s located on the corner of Eagle and Amity, which means central to everything. Close jaunt to the freeway to hit the next Boise State football game or towards Caldwell for your favorite concert at the Ford Idaho Center. Local dog parks, The Village in Meridian for everything and even only a little over a mile to Mountain View high School and Lake Hazel Middle School.
Another reason why Goldengrove is the bees knees, have you seen the New YMCA? You won’t miss it because it’s basically right across the street. It’s shiny, it’s clean, and it even smells new (Bonus points for a fresh smelling gym am I right?) Let the kids loose and get your workout on, or sign up for fun classes for the kiddos and for you!
This just might be the best part… even better than what has been previously mentioned… Hello UPGRADES! Picture this included: Kitchen Granite Countertops | Upgraded Cabinets | Craftsman Trim | Stainless Steel Appliances
This location honestly couldn’t get any better. Or could it?!
Okay, I’ll stop there, but we’re so excited about it we could BURST!
We can’t wait to see you there!
