    ​COLUMBUS, OHIO – Stately and inviting, The Nottoway show home by Fischer Homes welcomed 4,500 visitors during the 2013 Homefest with its unique floor plan that includes a light-filled library, gourmet kitchen and owner's personal retreat. Sponsored by the Home Builders Association of Northern Kentucky, the annual showcase of upscale homes by builders in the Cincinnati area allowed Fischer Homes to showcase its 5,900-square foot Provincial-style home, which is part of the company's Grand Estates Custom Collection.


    Infused with light, the two-story home relies on 49 Simonton ProFinish® Builder energy-efficient vinyl windows to bring light into the spacious home. The ENERGY STAR® qualified windows include ProSolar®  Low E glass with an Argon gas fill for increased assistance in helping keep the home interior warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer.

    "We've used ProFinish Builder windows as the standard in our homes for more than 20 years," says Jim Downard, product offering manager with Fischer Homes. "These windows are proven winners. They complement the look and style of our homes while providing energy efficiency, low maintenance and durability features that our homebuyers find extremely valuable."

    Designed by Simonton Windows to install easily and look beautiful, ProFinish Builder windows feature an attractive angled exterior and an integral nailing fin. The Intercept® spacer system is standard in this product line that includes white and tan interior/exterior color offerings plus a multitude of glass package and grid options. There are 32 Single Hung, 15 Picture and two Slider windows in The Nottoway home.

    "We will build more than 1,000 homes this year throughout the Midwest with these top-quality vinyl windows," says Downard. "The customer service, warranty and consistent product performance provided to us from Simonton Windows brings us back year-after-year to confidently install these windows to enhance the overall look of our homes."

    Located in the Triple Crown master planned country club community in Union, Kentucky, The Nottoway includes four bedrooms, a hearth room plus European touches throughout the house. The community features an 18-hole championship golf course, clubhouse, swimming pool, driving range and tennis courts along with a playground and miles of scenic walking and bike trails.
