This project began with a lot in an existing subdivision that had been passed over by three previous builders and deemed to be unbuildable. To properly prepare the lot, excavators had to dig as far as 20 feet to find virgin soil. From there, 20 courses of 12-inch block were laid and poured solid with concrete and rebar every three feet. The living area of the home features a custom entertainment center with pallet wood accents and painted floating shelves – offering a rustic, yet contemporary design. The living room gives way to an open kitchen/dining area which features stainless steel appliances, a large pantry for convenient storage, painted cabinets and a raised bar at the island for additional seating. Just off the dining area, the main bathroom features a custom storage niche that mimics the pallet wood accents found in the living room. The master suite features a spacious bedroom and bathroom, which boasts a vanity, tiled shower, separate toilet enclosure and a large walk-in closet.
