New to Columbia but Not New to Homebuilding

Built in the Carolinas, Eastwood Homes is new to Columbia but not new to homebuilding! Backed by over 40 years of experience, Eastwood Homes is proud to expand its footprint in the Southeast by officially transitioning Fortress Homes to the Columbia Division of Eastwood Homes.

Flooring in move-in-ready home

What is Enhanced Vinyl Plank Flooring

Eastwood Homes is pleased to offer a new line of flooring called Enhanced Vinyl Plank, often referred to as EVP! This new type of flooring offered by Shaw will provide homeowners protection against all life has to throw at it! It’s similar to Luxury Vinyl Plank flooring, otherwise known as LVP, which has been a favorite among our homeowners for years now, and which also offers better protections against spills over the more traditional hardwood flooring.

Making Every Season One to Remember for Our Homeowners!

By now, you have probably heard or read our slogan, Built with Care. Whether you’ve visited a model home or spoke with one of our New Home Specialists, it was always right in front of you. At Eastwood, Built with Care is more than a slogan, but a way of life! Since 1977, we have remained committed to our homebuyers, even after they have closed on their new Eastwood Home. Each year, the Stewarts encourage our sales team to host special holiday events for their homeowners, and our team is happy to do so!

Holiday memories, from our homes to yours

At Eastwood Homes, we pride ourselves on building our clients’ a house that will someday become their home. And every year, the holidays help transform many of those new Eastwood homes into places where memories and traditions, new and old, are made and kept. This year, we wanted to share with you the memories and traditions from our own families that make each of our houses a home. We hope you will enjoy this glimpse into our life at home!

Thankful for Levine

There are many things to be thankful for this season and at Eastwood Homes, we’re thankful for the leadership of the Stewart family and their commitment to giving back to the community! Despite the recession in 2008, Eastwood Homes formed a partnership with the Levine Children’s Hospital, headquartered in Charlotte, NC. This was not an easy time for Eastwood, but the Stewart’s remained steadfast and we’re proud to say that since 2008, Eastwood Homes has remained committed to the hospital and growth in the Carolinas. For the year, Eastwood has donated over $100,000 to Levine!

Why we choose Eastwood Homes

We have a common theme among our employees: long tenure here at Eastwood Homes! It's something we've always known, but when we did the math and realized just how many of our team members have been around for several years, even we were impressed. So, we thought we'd ask them why. Their responses are as unique, and awesome, as each of them.

Taking "Built With Care" home to our community

We recently unveiled our new Built with Care initiative, reflecting our company’s culture of being a family-owned company with ties to the communities where we build. We care about those communities, our homeowners, our vendor partners and our team members. This week provided several opportunities for our company to show that our Built with Care initiative is more than a slogan. It’s who we are, and what drives us every day! We are proud to cultivate a culture of caring and we are fortunate to have the opportunity to be involved in the community!

How to choose a builder

Building a new home can feel overwhelming, but if you are armed with the right questions to ask, you can find a builder you can trust. You should familiarize yourself with all the questions offered up by the two homebuilding sources. There are some hugely important questions that will play a large part in your decision, such as “do you build in the town I want to live in” and “do you have a floorplan that fits my needs?” But, that may not narrow down the field enough for you to make a decision.
