Meet Kevin Teague

Meet Kevin Teague

When you’re planning to build in the beautiful North Georgia Mountains, there are certainly plenty of builders that can assist you. However, if you are looking for quality craftsmanship, attention to detail, and a builder with more than 21 years of experience in the industry, look no further than Kevin Teague Custom Built Homes. 

Mr. Teague is a proud second-generation builder. His start in the industry dates back to his early childhood when as a 5-year old boy he spent countless hours by his father’s side driving to each jobsite and seeing with his own eyes how house is built from the ground up. Anxious to be his Dad’s best helper, Kevin would happily pick up scrap wood to toss into the construction site’s burn pile. As he matured in age, he gained more responsibility and learned every aspect of home building.

Today, Kevin Teague and his team have proudly constructed more than 250 homes in and around the North Georgia Mountains; ...

Fightingtown Creek

Rich with Native American roots and abundant wildlife, Fightingtown Creek rises 2,000 feet above elevation and runs from the Eastern slopes of the Cohuttas in the Chattahoochee National Forest in Gilmer County through Northwest Blue Ridge to McCaysville before it joins with the Toccoa River in Georgia and the Ocoee River in Tennessee. There is some debate on the origin of the name, but regardless of the area being named after warring tribal leaders or frogs with an attitude, there is no dispute about the beauty of the land that surrounds this lively brook!
Owning property along Fightingtown creek provides you a secluded escape, with proximity to town. Here you can create a private oasis along the lush banks of the river to enjoy all the sights and sounds of nature. In the summertime you can tube or kayak the river and anglers will love the year-round challenge of fishing for native and stocked trout. Don’t miss the opportunity to live here. You’ll be thankful you did! ...

7 Tips to Winterize Your Home

She provides us with beautiful fall color as a subtle way of saying – ahem, seasonal change is coming, and you might want to think about what’s next. But we get all ga-ga over the pretty colors and sometimes we forget. So, she gets a bit more forceful, with heavy late-autumn rains and blustery winds, and we start to get the point. If we’re smart, it’s a wake-up call reminding us to ready our homes for winter.

The cardinal rule in preparing a house for the cold is to do it while it’s relatively warm and pleasant. There’s nothing quite so unpleasant as to be outside in the ice and snow trying to winterize. So, simply said – let’s get on it, and we at Nathan Fitts & Team have put together a few tips to help you out.

Inspect your home inside and out. It might sound weird, but binoculars could be a key tool in this process. ...
