Cozy Craftsman Shows That A True Custom Home Isn’t Defined By Size

Wednesday, March 11, 2020

Custom homes are often thought to be large and elaborate, and while that may be the case, the fact is, they’re simply homes that are one-of-a-kind designed for specific clients.   And they aren’t necessarily dependent on square footage, as this cozy 2200 square foot Craftsman proves.

Working with an architect, our empty nester clients designed the plan to suit their daily lifestyle, frequent visits by grandchildren and desire for energy efficiency. 

Just some of the interior finishes included kitchen cabinets of quartersawn oak and painted maple that were built by a local cabinet maker, and some of the cabinet hardware was hand forged.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The grandchildren were even included in selecting the interior finishes.  Each one got to choose a favorite animal which was then handcrafted into a tile and inserted into the backsplash in their bathroom.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And the energy efficiency our clients desired?  Solar power helped to achieve a low HERS rating of 34.
