Have you ever made a New Year’s resolution on January 1st, only to lose momentum on your commitment by February 1st (or sooner)? The reason, according to psychological studies, is because we’re trying to make too big a change, too fast; we’re using negative reinforcement to try to achieve a goal; or we’re doing it for reasons that we don’t truly believe.

Did you enjoy Fall? Or did you blink and miss it? This crazy Georgia weather is warm one minute, arctic the next.
That’s why being at home can be so comforting throughout the year, especially when you feel your home is a reflection of you - is your sanctuary - and provides the comfort you need to enjoy every single day.
Patios, covered porches, and private courtyards are among the most alluring features for Active Adults when they right-size their homes at Windsong, because these spaces provide the perfect opportunities to continue (or discover) gardening on a manageable scale.
Courtyards offer an “outdoor room,” expanding the living space to include gardening and entertaining areas that offer peace and tranquility which include flowers, herbs, vegetables, and whatever else the homeowner has in mind.
From the very first homes we built, Windsong recognized the appeal of main level living while incorporating the features we loved about the large homes and neighborhoods in which we raised our families.
With an eye toward both luxury and practicality, each Windsong home features a smaller footprint but spaces that live large, making everyday living enjoyable, and entertaining easier.
