New House built on original foundation tour

Happy Friday everyone. I thought I would share with you a new  house built on the original foundation that we worked on.  The original house is on an unconforming lot which had to be taken down piece by piece and built back up.  The contractor on this build is the contractor that we have chosen to build our 1,000 sq.ft. addition.  He does wonderful quality work and the only problem starting our build is the fact he is  busy busy busy.  Unfortunately, I don't have any pics of the original house.



Whether you are planning new constuction or updating your home, here are some ideas that might help you with the decision of products and colors along the way.
Please note: the homeowners are not occupying the house at the time of the pics and  moved some furniture in and the decorating is not final. I was lucky to get a peek inside.

Front of house


Masonry work


Outside lighting


Recessed Lighting added


Landscaping is the final step to completing the jobsite. That is our excavator shown here.



The kitchen is bright and clean with an open concept.
Stainless steel appliances and subway tile


Great space for cooking and entertaining.




Kitchen island


Notice the tile design and backsplash with a 6 burner stovetop.


The built-in was a nice focal point when you entered the kitchen. The pictures don't do justice here. I was in a rush when I took these as we had an appointment to get to.  The matching counter and subway tile really dress up this built-in.



This area I call it a parlor as some call it a living room.


Notice the wrought iron and wood stairway.


Clean gas fireplace.  I personally would have a mantal of some sort added but this is a modern look and what I think they wanted to achieve here.


This room looks like it might be a work space, I'm not really sure. It is located on the first floor.


First floor bathroom. The flooring here is also used in the laundry room.


Laundry room also located on the first floor.


Work space counter for folding and sorting laundry


Stairway heading up to large family which is located over the 2 car garage.


Large family room with lots of large windows for natural light.




Notice the air conditioning without the duct work and vents.


Wide staircase looking down from family room into kitchen.


Hardwood flooring used throughout.




Tongue and groove ceiling and lighting.  A focal point in the hall leading up to kitchen when you enter the house.



I hope you enjoyed this house tour and use some of these ideas for building and decorating design.  It can somewhat be overwhelming when you are remodeling and enter the store with all the options there are to choose from.  I find it to be an easier decision on the latest colors, flooring, appliances, cabinets, counters, tiles, lighting, windows  and so on when you actually see it in finished area.  I enter the stores knowing what I want ahead of time. Less stress.
