If you’ve just moved to Cypress Green, the first holiday you will probably celebrate is Father’s Day. Celebrating it in your new home offers a wonderful opportunity to create memorable experiences. Here are some ideas to make the day special:

Breakfast in Bed
Put that new kitchen to work whipping up Dad’s favorite breakfast foods. Consider pancakes, waffles, eggs, bacon and fresh fruit. Then put it all on a tray and serve it to him in bed. If he’s not a breakfast-in-bed person, decorate the informal dining area with streamers and signs so he can see how much you love him as he is chowing down.

Let Him Relax
Spa days aren’t just for mom. Set up an at-home spa day with a foot bath, massage and Dad’s favorite relaxing activities. Tell him to spend part of the day dedicating himself to his favorite hobby. Bonus points if he gets to use one of his Father’s Day gifts.

Create Something Together
Work on a DIY project together, such as building a birdhouse, planting a garden or working on the car. You won’t have to do any home improvement with a new Cypress Green home, but if there is a project on his list, offer to help or do it for him.

Lunch or Dinner Al Fresco
Host a backyard barbecue with all his favorite grilled foods. It’s really easy if you opted to install an outdoor kitchen in your new Cypress Green home. Include games like cornhole, horseshoes or bocce ball. If you aren’t proficient in the grilled meat department, set up a picnic in the backyard or nearby park with a basket full of his favorite snacks and drinks.

Play Together
Host a family game night with his favorite board, video or card games. Break in your new media room by hosting a movie marathon featuring his favorite films or a themed series. Provide plenty of snacks and his favorite beverage.

Make Memories
Start making memories in your new home! Spend time sharing stories about dad. Record the conversation for a keepsake. Have a family photo session in and around your new home to capture the special day.

Don’t Forget the Gifts
Create a personalized gift such as a photo album, a framed family photo or a hand-painted picture. Not creative? Give him a custom-made item like a mug, T-shirt or keychain with a special message or photo.

What are you doing while your beautiful new Cypress Green home is being built? Making plans to sell your current home. Selling a home involves several steps and considerations all designed to make your home as attractive as possible to potential buyers. Not sure where to start? Here are a few tips.

Get Professional Help
While you can sell your home on your own, working with a Realtor can streamline the process and provide valuable expertise, especially when navigating negotiations and legalities. They can help you set the right price, provide tips on making your home more attractive and utilize various marketing channels to reach potential buyers.

Make a Good First Impression
If your home isn’t appealing on the outside, potential buyers might not want to see the inside. Maximize curb appeal by ensuring that your landscaping is neat, and the exterior is well-maintained. Consider adding some appealing touches like potted plants or a fresh coat of paint to the front door.

Time to Clean
Make sure your home is clean, decluttered and well-maintained. Consider hiring professional cleaners to give your place that new home smell. Clear off countertops, shelves and closets to create a sense of spaciousness. Address issues such as leaky faucets, chipped paint, broken tile or squeaky doors.

Stage Your Home
Staging your home can help potential buyers envision themselves living there. Remove personal items, rearrange furniture to create a sense of space and add tasteful decor to highlight the home’s features. Consider repainting your walls in neutral colors so the house appeals to a wider range of buyers.

Highlight Key Features
Showcase the unique selling points of your home, whether it’s a spacious kitchen, a beautiful view or a recently renovated bathroom. Highlighting these features can make your property stand out in a competitive market.

Be Flexible with Showings
Make your home available for showings at convenient times for potential buyers, including evenings and weekends. The more accessible your home is, the more opportunities you’ll have to attract interested parties.

Be Transparent
Disclose any known issues or defects with the property upfront. Being transparent builds trust with potential buyers and can prevent complications during the negotiation process.

Set the Right Price
Research the market and set a competitive price for your home. Overpricing can deter potential buyers, while underpricing may lead to loss of value. Consider getting a professional appraisal or consulting a Realtor for guidance.


You don’t just buy a home; you buy a community. That’s why it’s important to do your research. Cypress Green is located in Cypress, an up-and-coming area combining community spirit, excellent schools, outdoor recreation opportunities, convenient amenities and diverse housing. Here are 5 reasons we love Cypress:

A Strong Sense of Community
Cypress fosters a strong sense of community, where neighbors know each other and often come together for events, festivals and local activities. A favorite spot for families is the Berry Center. This premier sports and entertainment venue hosts everything from high school graduations to family-friendly productions. Runners and their cheering section come out year after year for the Cypress 10 Miler. Annual festivals like A Taste of Cy-Fair bring friends and neighbors together for food and fun.

First Class School District
Cypress is known for its excellent school district, Cypress-Fairbanks Independent School District (CFISD). With top-rated schools and a variety of educational opportunities, Cypress attracts families seeking a quality education for their children. The district received an “A” rating from the Texas Education Agency in 2022. Niche gives CFISD an A and ranks it among the top 50 Best School Districts in Texas. The district’s College Academy partnership with Lone Star College allows students to receive both a high school diploma and an associate degree at the same time.

Outdoor Recreation
Cypress offers ample opportunities for outdoor recreation, with numerous parks, nature trails and recreational facilities. Little Cypress Preserve features 57 acres of interactive trails. The Cypress Creek Greenway seeks to preserve a natural corridor along Cypress Creek and develop a trail system to connect existing and future parks. Matzke Park is accessible to kids of all abilities.

Convenience and Amenities
Cypress boasts a wide range of amenities, including shopping centers, restaurants, and healthcare facilities. Residents love heading out to the Houston Premium Outlets for a day of bargain hunting. Cypress Towne Center and Fairfield Town Center host big box stores such as Kohl’s, PetSmart, Best Buy and more. Main Bird Chicken is a local favorite known for Nashville-style hot chicken. Dario’s Steakhouse & Seafood offers a high-end dining experience. When you need medical attention Houston Methodist Cypress Hospital is a state-of-the-art facility.

Diverse Housing Options
Whether you’re looking for a spacious suburban home, a cozy townhouse or a luxury estate, Cypress offers diverse housing options to suit various preferences and budgets. One of the best places to pick out your dream home is Cypress Green. Our builders offer floor plans, elevations and options that will help you live the life you were meant to lead.


The architecture of your new Cypress Green home will be different from that of your existing home, which means you may have to rethink where to hang art and family photos. How? Here’s a step-by-step guide to help you hang and group pictures like a pro.

Make a Plan
Before you hammer that first nail, plan out where to hang your pictures. You can use paper cutouts or painter’s tape to map out where each picture will go. Consider factors like spacing, arrangement and the overall balance of the display.

Change Up Your Frames
This is a great time to change out your frames. Select ones that complement each other and your decor style. You can opt for matching frames for a cohesive look or mix different styles and finishes for a more eclectic vibe.

More Planning and Arranging
Lay out your pictures on a flat surface, such as the floor or a large table, to experiment with different arrangements. Play around with the placement of each picture until you find a layout that you’re happy with.

Measure and Mark
Once you’ve finalized your layout, use a pencil to mark the positions of the pictures on the wall. Use a tape measure and a level to ensure accuracy and straight lines. Consider using a laser level or picture-hanging tool for precise alignment.

Get Hanging
Single pieces such as a large picture over the fireplace or sofa are easy. For more of a gallery look, start by hanging the largest or central piece first, as it will serve as the focal point of your display. Use appropriate hanging hardware for each picture such as nails, picture hooks or adhesive hooks, depending on the weight and type of frame.

Work Outward
For grouped arrangements, work outward from the central piece, gradually adding smaller pictures around it. If you’re creating a gallery wall with multiple frames, consider leaving some space between each frame to allow the eye to rest and appreciate each piece individually.

Step Back and Adjust
Step back frequently to assess your arrangement from different angles and distances. Make any necessary adjustments to spacing, alignment or placement as you go. Trust your instincts and aim for a visually balanced and harmonious display.

Finish Up
Once your pictures are hung, take a moment to make any final adjustments and ensure everything is level and secure. Consider adding decorative elements such as wall sconces, mirrors or accent pieces to complement your picture display. Then admire your handiwork.

What’s better than purchasing a new home in Cypress Green?

Purchasing a home with a builder’s incentive. It’s quite common for builders to offer incentives to attract buyers. These incentives can vary widely but usually include upgrades, special financing and special pricing. Here are some common types of incentives followed by a look at some of the incentives Cypress Green builders are offering.

Interest Rate Help
Currently, many builders are offsetting higher interest rates with buy-downs and rate locks. In these instances, the builder will pay for points. Points are prepaid interest that you can pay to lower your mortgage interest rate over the life of the loan. A rate lock is an agreement between you and your lender that guarantees a specific interest rate on a mortgage loan for a specified period of time. Either can significantly lower your monthly payments.

Closing Cost Assistance
Builders may offer to cover some or all of the buyer’s closing costs, which can include expenses such as loan origination fees, title insurance and appraisal fees. This can help reduce your upfront costs.

Upgrade Packages
Builders may offer upgrade packages at discounted rates or include certain upgrades as part of the purchase price. These upgrades could include premium flooring, countertops, appliances or other features that enhance your home’s value and appeal.

Design Center Credits
Builders often have design centers where you can select finishes, fixtures and other customization options for your new home. Builders may offer credits toward the design center or include a certain amount of customization options for free.

Move-In Ready Homes
Builders may offer special pricing or incentives for move-in ready homes that are already completed or nearing completion. Many of these homes also include structural options and upgrades so you get a beautiful home you don’t have to wait for.

Cypress Green Builder Incentives
Three Cypress Green builders are currently offering incentives.

So, you’ve just moved into your beautiful new home in Cypress Green, what are you going to do with all those empty moving boxes? Turns out, there are a lot of things you can do. Here are 10 of them:

Sell Them

Want to do something easy and make some money? You can sell your gently used boxes. BoxCycle connects box buyers with box sellers so everyone wins. Are you on NextDoor? Let your new neighbors know you have moving boxes for sale.

Donate or Give Them Away

If the boxes are still in good condition, consider donating them to local charities, schools or community centers for use in art projects or storage. Alternatively, give them a good home with friends and relatives. You can also join the Freecycle Network, a non-profit organization whose mission is to keep useable items out of garbage dumps. List your moving boxes there.

Recycle

If all else fails, make sure to recycle the boxes. Many municipalities offer curbside recycling for cardboard, or you can take them to a local recycling center.

Packaging Material

Shred the cardboard into strips or pieces to use as eco-friendly packaging material for shipping or storing fragile items.

Kids’ Playhouse

Transform the boxes into a makeshift playhouse for children. They can decorate it with crayons, paint or stickers to personalize their own space.

Pet Projects

If you have furry friends, you can create pet homes for them. Construct a multi-level cat castle by stacking and connecting boxes. Larger boxes make great temporary dog houses for Fido. Cut holes for doors and windows and add blankets or cushions for comfort.

Art Projects

Use the cardboard as a canvas for art projects. Paint or draw on them, cut them into interesting shapes or even create a collage.

Garden Uses

Convert the cardboard into a compost bin for your garden. The cardboard provides carbon-rich material that balances out nitrogen-rich kitchen scraps. Flatten boxes and use them to kneel on while gardening. Smaller boxes can be used as temporary planters.

Insulation

Use flattened cardboard boxes as temporary insulation for windows during the colder months. They can help keep out drafts and retain heat.

DIY Furniture

Get creative and build your own furniture pieces like shelves, bedside tables or even a desk using the sturdy cardboard boxes as the base structure.
