Constructing a firm building foundation is of utmost importance when building a luxury custom home. The foundation is the structural base and support of the entire home. At Alford Homes, we offer an additional service where we can include the Holy Bible in the very foundation of your new custom home. Some homeowners and families choose to have the Bible open to their favorite scripture and while others like to leave the Bible closed. The Bible will become part of your homes foundation – as we pour the concrete.
If you are a Believer, you may consider this service with your new custom Alford Home. For your family, it will always be a reminder of God’s word in the very foundation of your home and with your family. The Bible can be placed open to the scriptural passage that you choose. Some suggestions are:
Therefore, everyone who hears words of Mine and acts on them, may be compared to a wise man who built his house on the rock. And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and slammed against that house; and yet it did not fall, for it had been founded on the rock… (Matthew 7:24)
By wisdom a house is built, and by understanding it is established: And by knowledge the rooms are filled with all precious and pleasant riches… (Proverbs 24:3)
Other options include writing on the framing of your homes doorposts, as written in Deuteronomy 6: 6-9 And these words which I command you today shall be in your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up. You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates. Also, families have asked for a nameplate up near the doorbell with their favorite quote, verse, poem or simply the names of the family members or just their last name.
