This beautiful 56,000 square-foot church sits on 162 acres of land. In September 2017, F&S Building Innovations began construction on this stunning church facility. The 2-year scheduled construction was completed in March 2020. Not only does this church have an extraordinary view, it also includes a coffee shop, bookstore, gymnasium, and an auditorium that seats up to 800 people. The church facility is Phase 1 of a larger master plan for the property situated in the Smith Mountain Lake community.

The F&S Building Innovations Team holds quarterly meetings – this is an opportunity to share accomplishments with the team and exciting things happening within the company. At F&S, our team is treated like family. Though we are constantly adding new members, in our quarterly meeting in March of 2020 we were so excited to have introduced seven new members, including three new project managers and a student apprentice.  

In January 2020, F&S Building Innovations exhibited at the Greater Roanoke Home & Garden Show. We are pleased to announce that the F&S Team brought home the Exhibit Excellence Award! The Garden show exhibits every year and is an event that displays the latest products for your home and garden. This is a terrific event that allows people to go to one place, and see what multiple companies have to offer. We are thrilled to, once again, achieve the Exhibit Excellence Award!

Our community is valued by the F&S team! In December 2019, F&S Building Innovations teamed up with Bin There Dump That collecting food for Feeding America Southwest Virginia. There are 1 in 8 people in Southwest Virginia that are experiencing hunger -Feeding America Southwest Virginia provides food for those in need due to the loss of a job, inadequate fixed incomes or acute illness. This is a great way to give back to the people in our community.

The F&S team is humbled to announce the following awards from the Best of Roanoke 2019: Platinum Best Home Design Building Firm, Platinum Best Commercial Construction Developer, Platinum Best Home Restoration Company, and Silver Best Kitchen and Bath Contractor. We are grateful to have an awesome team here at F&S, and continue to strive for excellence!

F&S Building collected new sports equipment during the American Heart Association’s New River Valley and Roanoke Heart Walks. These items were donated to the Boys & Girls Club on 9th Street in Roanoke.   The F&S Team was given a personal tour of the facility and it was amazing.   Classrooms, gym, space, common areas, a kitchen, a computer lab…. it was wonderful to see how they are helping the children in our community by building their 3 pillars : Academic success, Healthy Lifestyles and Character and citizenship.

Do you have a living room that you want to be super stylish… but also family friendly?  And do you also happen to have a loving spouse that has completely different taste in interior design schemes? Welcome to the dilemma of approximately 100 million households across America.

Aside from the kitchen, the living or family room is the place where your family most likely congregates for some quality time whether that means doing homework, working on your favorite hobby or just sitting down as a family to enjoy a good TV show.

The key to a good living room design is to embrace your style but amplify the functionality at every turn. Building on open-plan living, find creative ways to utilize space without filling it up with large amounts of furniture.  It’s normal for budget conscious families to try to use all the furniture they have amassed over the life of their family- this can frequently result in the space feeling disjointed with no real rhyme or reason to the design.  Chaotic color choices may bring more confusion to the space. Solutions can range from innovative storage to just plain ‘ole decluttering.

Always determine your focal point which may be a really great fireplace, a large picture window overlooking your lake view or just a really great piece of furniture.  Make sure all the items in the room complement that focal point even if they are not an exact match.

Choose a paint color that belies your personality.  If you have warring sentiments for color choices with part of your family gravitating toward bright reds and yellows while others favor soft grays – choose a darker neutral.  You can always add brightly colored accessories but it is much harder to change a paint color.

Make room for everyone- the larger your family, the more challenging it can be to infuse the space with touches that speak to everyone.  Obviously you want to encourage a layout that promotes quality family time.  Make sure there is enough seating to accommodate everyone in your family- this could be accomplished by sofas and chairs but could also incorporate comfy-but-cute pouch ottomans or cozy bean bag chairs for kids and teens.  Find a coffee table that also has storage beneath that can keep games on hand for a little family fun.

Light up the room with various types of lighting- pendants for decorative flair, floor lamps for muted ambiance, and standard ceiling lights when you need to light up the room.  Having different types of lighting is an easy way to adjust the feel of the room based on your mood.

Finally…furniture.  If you are trying to make the most of your money you may be recycling your current sofa or sectional.  Add bright pillows or a nice throw.  You may be able to invest in some fun accent chairs which are functional but also add a little pizazz.  End tables and coffee tables that have drawers or storage are great for adding hidden storage.

If your home does not have the open floor plan that makes family living flow you may want to consider taking out some of the dividing walls.  The key to that is making sure you engage a licensed and insured general contractor that can evaluate the structural aspects as well as provide interior design guidance to insure your investment creates the perfect space!
