Custom Home Build: Warm and Light

Bright light, tall ceilings and clean lines

We have been working on the many details of the inside of this beautiful family home for months. Every aspect of life with six children has been thought of, including a large mudroom with benches and hooks for jacks and backpacks right off the garage.

After the mudroom you enter the oversized pantry to efficiently unload groceries and supplies before you get to the open kitchen /family room with windows on all sides to see the amazing forest view.

In the family room is a custom fireplace with reclaimed wood that goes the whole way to the 20-foot ceiling. Don’t worry about the cold air coming through because the 20, large double-pane windows, and the Radiant-heated wood floors, with keep their feet toasty as they watch TV or entertain.

Throughout the house it feels clean, light and bright with its many windows, 8-foot doors, 10-foot ceiling on the main level and 9-foot ceiling on the basement and second floor levels.

Next time: We will talk about an interesting paint choice (black!) and where it is at! Also, the kitchen cabinets are in!
