Today, more families are operating a majority of their daily lives from their home's comfort and need a floor plan design that fits this newfound lifestyle. Work from home, facilitate virtual learning, and prepare daily meals, all with ease in your new home at Capstone Homes at Jasper in Prescott Valley, AZ. With the help of Capstone Homes' Design/Build program and an incredible team of experts, you can construct a home design that flows with your new way of living to keep you stress-free and productive. You can create the ideal home office space that provides lots of natural lighting and little to no distractions while completing your daily tasks. 

 

We've compiled a shortlist of tips to help you stay productive while working in your new home:

 

Define your workspace

 

Select one specific room or area in your home that will be your dedicated workspace throughout the week. This will ensure that there are fewer distractions and you are working in an environment conducive to high productivity.

 

Plan out your tasks for the day

 

Start your workday by organizing a list of tasks that need to be completed and check them off as you go so that you know what needs to be done as the day progresses. This also helps to make sure that nothing goes overlooked and incomplete.

 

Take your breaks

 

It is common for many people to skip taking a lunch break or small ten-minute break to stretch, fuel their bodies, or get a breath of fresh air. Set an alarm to take scheduled breaks throughout the day to rest your eyes and break away from the computer. Read a book, make a quick lunch, or take a short walk to clear your mind and relieve stress before diving back into your work zone.

 

Know when to stop

 

Just as taking breaks through the day is necessary, knowing when to stop working is equally just as important. If working hours are not already established, be sure to set a defined time to break away from your workspace to rest, enjoy your family and prepare for the next day. 

 

Do the most challenging tasks first

 

Complete the most challenging and time-consuming tasks at the start of your workday. These are the tasks that most people dread and like to save for last. The end of the day is also when you have less energy and can become drained. You are most alert and ready to work at the beginning of the day. 

 

Starting in the high $ 500,000's, the master-planned community at Capstone Homes at Jasper features three to five bedrooms, up to three and a half bathrooms, and a two to a three-car garage. Plans span up to 3,760 square feet of living space, supplying the perfect canvas to create a home design that suits your newfound needs. Community amenities include a tennis court, swimming pool, clubhouse, park, and community center.

Keep Yourself Occupied While Staying Safe in a New Home at Yavapai Hills

by Erin

Tennis Court Yavapai Hills Prescott Arizona

Outside of the excitement of purchasing your first new home, being confined inside during a global pandemic may not provide much to cheer about. While residing in the new home community of Yavapai Hills in Prescott, AZ, there is always something to do indoors and outdoors to ensure that you enjoy yourself while safely social distancing. Here is a quick list of fun things you may want to try to help pass the time away as you continue to stay safe during the pandemic:

 

Have a Family Movie Night

 

Now that everyone is in the house together, you can create intentional moments to spend much-needed quality time together. Draw names from a jar to see who gets to pick the movie first. Pop some popcorn and get ready to laugh or cry together as a family over your favorite films. To make the night even sweeter, you can invite your extended family to watch on Zoom to share the moment.

 

Adult Coloring Books 

 

Coloring is not just for kids anymore. Grab some adult coloring books and a box of colored pencils and go to town, allowing your imagination to run wild. You’ll find that you can easily find joy in the small things, even if it’s only for a few minutes.

 

Making Lists

 

Make a list of all of the things you are grateful for, the things that bring you joy, your most memorable moments of the year, or a shortlist of attainable goals you would like to accomplish this year. This is great to look back on in the future to review.

 

Learn a new skill

 

You can pick up a new instrument like the piano or guitar, try your hand at baking for the first time, or turn that brown thumb into a green one with a new house plant. Whatever it is, try it out. You can always find classes online that take you to step by step to learn the new skill you’ve always wanted to try.

 

Camp at home

 

Bring the camping experience to you by pitching a tent right in your backyard. You can tell scary stories when night falls and barbeque hot dogs and make smores on your BBQ pit. If you want to get fancy, you can even set up a projector to watch movies.

  

The fun doesn’t stop at home when living at Yavapai Hills. This community offers plenty of onsite amenities that allow you to stretch your legs and burn a few calories, including a tennis court, swimming pool, walking trails, and a community clubhouse. A few minutes from your new neighborhood is the Heritage Park Zoological Sanctuary, a non-profit animal sanctuary with interactive experiences that are great for young children to get acquainted with animal life. Enjoy hiking, camping, fishing, and boating at nearby recreational hot spots like the Prescott National Forest, Goldwater Lake, and Watson Lake. Take care of your weekend shopping at the Prescott Gateway Mall, where you can find retailers such as Dillard’s, JC Penney, and Bed Bath and Beyond. Many stores now offer options for curbside pickup. After a long day of shopping, you’ll want to fill your belly with great food that you can pick up or have delivered to your door from restaurants like Prescott Junction for warm family-sized breakfasts and classic comfort food, Raven Café for vegan, vegetarian, and gluten-free options, or LaBruzza’s Italian Ristorante for delicious Italian comfort food.

 

Starting from the high $400,000’s, floor plans featured at Yavapai Hills include three bedrooms, two and a half bathrooms, a two-car garage, and span between 2,325 to 2,746 square feet of living space. Plan 2460 highlights a gourmet kitchen with an island and walk-in pantry. Create warm, home-cooked dishes in this cook’s sanctuary fully equipped with a Whirlpool stainless steel appliance package, granite countertops, recess can lighting, and a stainless steel 60/40 under-mount sink. This plan also includes a dining room, family room, front patio, and courtyard perfect for indoor and outdoor entertaining year-round.
