These are a few of our favorite things…
In addition to building beautiful new homes throughout North Pittsburgh for over three decades, Weaver Homes’ team members are residents ourselves. So you might say we know our way around town — and are experts on things to do and places to see in Butler County, Allegheny County, Beaver County and beyond.
Now that Thanksgiving is behind us, the mad dash to prepare for the rest of the Holiday season is underway. And if you’re shopping for a life-changing purchase for your family (like, say, a new home…), we know how hard it can be to check off each special person on your list and find a thoughtful, fun gift for everyone.
That’s why the Weaver Homes team is here to help! We’ve put together the ultimate gift-giving guide for our local area. You won’t go wrong with any of the local attractions below.
