Designing Our Home

One of the best and arguably the most frustrating parts of building modular is designing the floor plan and front elevation of our new home.   We love craftsman style houses with lots of arts and crafts detail, especially a nice front porch.

We looked at tons of photos and drawings of houses and we still can’t quite find, “the one”.

What we have decided to do is combine a bunch of details and styles into one house.  We just sent our final requests to the architect tonight.  Fingers crossed it will all come together.

As for the interior, we had a pretty specific idea of what we wanted.  Here is what we landed on for the 1st floor.

We really like the open layout.  For the 2nd floor, we were looking for a pretty traditional floorplan.

I was excited that we were able to get the laundry room on the second floor.  And check out that super walk in closet in the master- sweet!

We still have a ton of work to do as we move forward, but it is really coming along nicely. Stay tuned for more renderings.
