How to Make a House a Home

Make your house a home - Delaware Retirement Communities - Millville by the SeaWhen moving into any newly built house, like the new models at Millville by the Sea, a family has the opportunity to make it their home. In one of the premier Delaware gated communities, there is something everyone can enjoy, and over the years, your new home becomes more engrained into your life and your memories. So, how do you transform your new house into your new home?

Start Traditions

The funny thing about family traditions is that they’re rarely ever planned – they just come to be! After spending countless summers and weekends in your new home at Millville By The Sea, you’ll find your family has grown to adopt many new interesting traditions and habits along the way. Whether it’s starting your weekend with a batch of pancakes and bacon or racing your kids to the pool or getting an evening ice cream at the nearby Bethany Beach boardwalk, these small gestures are part of what make a house a home.


Personalizing any house is so much easier to do when it’s newly built – you’ll have a blank canvas! You’ll have plenty to pick from when you buy a home from the Christopher Companies. Their innovative single family designs include spacious first floor owner’s suites, nine-foot ceilings, and tons of options like screen porches, and patios that crate the perfect outdoor entertaining spaces. And the new homes in the Summerhouse Collection from Miller & Smith lend perfectly to beach décor with open floor plans, volume ceilings first floor master suites and options for screened porches and patios. Best of all, after spending time in your new home, you’ll find a growing collection of seashells, seaglass and more – each with its own memory attached – displayed throughout the house.
