Growing into the most challenging phase of homeownership, this family had originally attempted to repurpose their starter home to fit their impending future of married children and prospective grandbabies visiting and filling their home. They had nearly settled on plans that fit only about 80% of the criteria they had set for themselves. But a quick analysis discovered some quick fixes that turned the plan from just “okay” to “Wow! We love it!”
Priorities and challenges included capturing the fantastic views from their hillside lot, welcoming suites for visiting family, hosting gatherings, a great home base for her growing interior design practice, and personal private quarters. She was searching for 2-story aesthetics while maintaining functional main floor living and he needed sufficient space for their 4-wheelers, dirt bikes, a boat, and the family vehicles and equipment.
Understanding and knowing the family’s living habits and personalities made it easy to design spaces that worked for them. Positioning the home just right on the building lot captured views that create living art in their 2-story great room windows that is also visible and enjoyed from the kitchen, dinette, and foyer. The garage was designed with maximum storage and accessibility in mind. Convenience overrode square footage for the mudroom and powder bath. Individual bedrooms and nearby baths for each child ensures that they (and their future spouses and children) will feel comfortable and welcome during their return visits home.
