It’s Earth Month! How to Participate


Did you know that April is Earth Month? April 22nd has been celebrated since 1970 as Earth Day, the most celebrated environmental event worldwide. It’s important now more than ever for all of us to do what we can to take care of the Earth, now and for the future. Mason Homes is a strong believer that if we take care of the Earth, we’re also helping take care of our own health. We try to build sustainable communities and all our homes are Green for Life, providing you and your family with a healthier living environment and contributing to conserving the Earth.

This April, during Earth Month, your family can enjoy fun activities together while promoting green living:

  1. Clean up your community: spend an afternoon or just an hour picking up garbage in your community. You’ll be surprised the difference you can make in a short amount of time, cleaning and beautifying your neighbourhood!
  2. Plan earthy visits: take your family and your friends on a field trip to enjoy nature and to exercise in the fresh air. Now’s the perfect season!
  3. Support local farming: visit your local farms or farmers’ market, and learn about where your food comes from.

You can check a list of community events in your area here, so that your family can participate together, while making new friends and creating a better environment!

A New Gem! New Design Studio Coming to Peterborough


Now that we’re about to kick off phase two of Avonlea, we’re excited to inform you that we’re also building a new Design Studio in Peterborough! The new studio will be located in a beautiful historic building in the downtown area of Peterborough.

We’ve been building homes in this area for the past forty years, and the new Design Studio will be a lot more convenient for all the homebuyers at Avonlea, Port Hope Golf and Country Club and our upcoming new home community in Cobourg, to ensure that your home is tailored to suit your needs and your style.

At the Design Studio, our professional Design Consultant will walk you through every step to help you build the home you’ve always dreamed of! The new location will be open late spring/early summer this year.

The framing stage is nearly complete at the Design Studio. It may look like a construction zone now but once completed, the new space will look amazing!


Make St. Patrick’s Day Really Green!


Traditionally, St. Patrick’s Day was celebrated every year for spiritual renewal but now every March 17th, we think more about green beer, shamrocks and getting together with friends in busy pubs to toast Irish pride – no matter what your background or where you live.

One town with a ton of spirit on St. Patrick’s Day – in fact, year-round – is Port Hope, just about an hour east of Toronto. Mason Homes has just started building our sales centre and model home at Port Hope Golf and Country Club, our newest Green for Life (not just St. Patrick’s Day!) community.

An active, adult community, Port Hope Golf and Country Club is going to be a charming community with a great neighbourly vibe. We’ve paid special attention to every detail so that everything about it fits the soundtrack of your life. So whether you’re kicking back to some easy listening and watching an amazing sunset, throwing some classic rock on your iPod and hitting a nearby hiking trail or kicking up your heels to your favourite Irish jig, there’s a place for you at Port Hope Golf and Country Club.

Register now and be one of the first to experience life at Port Hope Golf and Country Club – and cheers to a great St. Patrick’s Day!

Live Green at Avonlea!


We just had a great meeting in Peterborough, getting approval for the second phase of our Avonlea community. Read about it here! Everyone is supportive and looking forward to more homes in this award-winning community. With pedestrian-friendly, walkable streets, parks, a pond, and charming family homes with great designs and picturesque porches, Avonlea is a truly enchanting community that homeowners love.

If you’re in Avonlea already, check out this great local event:

This weekend, the Schizophrenia Society of Ontario is hosting the 2011 Yogathon to raise funds and awareness to help those affected by schizophrenia. The event will be held at the Trinity United Church in Peterborough this Saturday, March 5th. Contact Joleen for more info, at or (705)-749-1753.

Live happily and stay active! At Mason Homes, we believe that living in a healthy environment brings joy and happiness to you and your family, which is why we build homes that are Green for Life, like those at Avonlea. Living a healthy lifestyle goes hand in hand with living in a healthy environment, as both will improve your health, mood and overall well-being.
Whether you’re doing yoga this weekend or just enjoying the fresh air at Avonlea, hope you have a great weekend!

We Did It Again!


As I mentioned last week, I was included as a finalist for EnerQuality’s Leader of the Year award this year, and I am happy to announce that I just won the award! I wish to thank all the homeowners that have purchased from us.  Thank you to all of the hardworking team at Mason Homes, all our great suppliers and our marketing team at BAM for their hard work. We look forward to another exciting year of green homebuilding as we turn 50 this year!

Mason Homes Sweeps PKHBA Awards


The Peterborough & The Kawarthas Home Builders Association (PKHBA) held its 8th annual Kawartha Awards of Distinction gala on November 19th, 2010, in Peterborough. We’re proud to announce that Mason Homes took home many first place awards. Mason Homes won several awards for the quality of their new home designs (Most Outstanding Single Detached Home, both under 1,500 sq. ft. for the Bluebird model and over 1,500 sq. ft. for the Greenwich model, and Most Outstanding Multi-Unit Attached Home), for their impressive marketing campaigns (Best Print Ad Campaign, Best Internet Website, Best Sales Brochure, and Best New Home Sales Office) and, most excitingly, Project of the Year for Avonlea.

Avonlea is an enchanting community in Peterborough full of parks, ponds, and family-friendly streets. It’s a green community in a perfect location surrounded by protected green space, and is walking distance to shopping and schools. The community has two-storey homes, bungalows, and townhomes. Avonlea won several awards at the PKHBA Awards of Distinction in 2009 as well. We’re very proud of this new home community and are pleased to see its positive impact on the Peterborough community, as it is almost sold out and full of active families and couples living a great lifestyle. Mason Homes has been building in the Peterborough and Kawarthas area for a long time now and feel that we are part of its glowing community. Thank you to the PKHBA and to the Peterborough community for our recent awards.
