There are many things Chad and Angie Agans love about their 2008 Hubble home. Their pride of homeownership shows firsthand on the outside and once again as you step inside.
The front lawn is impeccably manicured. Pumpkins and fall décor almost overshadow the love of football on the front porch. Or is it the other way around?
Inside the décor is clean, homey and welcoming. The couple love that they have more room now than they’ve had before. They like the location and that this home is close to Chad’s work and the school system of their choice. The two-story lifestyle is exactly what they were looking for when they had the opportunity to build in 2008.
The appreciation they have for their home started early. The couple enjoyed the process of having a home built. They have impressive and positive remarks for the Hubble team that did the work. The progression was interesting and fun for them and even their marriage. Now have a wonderful home to entertain guests, and entertain they do.
“If it’s a holiday, it’s here,” Angie says. “We’ll have 10 to 12 people for Thanksgiving, and we’ll have Christmas here as well. Holidays are the best!”
Once the pumpkin season is over, the seven-foot lighted Christmas tree will go up on the front porch, including extra-large presents and decorations. The family will add lights on the house, deck and fence.
They are also known to have Easter egg hunts in the backyard, birthday parties, Fourth of July gatherings, football festivities and driveway rallies.
“We’re very kid-friendly,” Angie says. “We even have slip and slides and trampolines in the summer, too.”
And rightly so — on one block alone of 19th Street S.W. in Altoona, there are approximately 22 kids.
It really is a dreamy street to drive down. Its beauty radiates on seasonal front porch decorations, nicely manicured lawns and outside toys temporarily left behind by otherwise occupied children.
“I like this street because everyone looks out for you,” Chad says. “It’s a great family-friendly neighborhood.”
The memories Chad and Angie are making for their children, family and friends will be cherished for many years, whether a holiday or not.
