Last year we had the pleasure of working for some pretty incredible people! One of the projects we started (and finished :) was a new construction. The owners purchased 80 acres outside of Yamhill and we worked together to design a “modern farmhouse”, it will serve as their vacation home and short term rental. We had so much fun working on this project, and the owners have become such good friends, they are pretty much family now!
I will get more exterior photos after the landscaping is finished! But, I just had to show you the front of the house! The garage is my favorite….those dark garage doors, the black goose neck lights, the false dormers and even the gutters! We went with a larger gutter and round downspouts, it’s all of the little details that add up, you know?!?
They wanted an open concept lay out. The dining room, kitchen and living room are all open and have large windows to capture the beautiful view out the back. Of course I have a thing for the cabinet maker….he’s cute and he really builds some beautiful cabinets! When we design a kitchen, we work through EVERY detail. Where will the knives go? What about the mixer? Silverware? We strive to have it so dialed in that nothing is left out! That way the clients know exactly how their new kitchen will function best for THEM…..happy clients = happy life :)
The living room opens to the back deck and is really made for entertaining! Matt built cabinetry to surround the fireplace, it makes it feel cozy and clean. He also mimicked the kitchen hood and installed tongue and groove paneling above the fireplace. The mantel is reclaimed oak and the fireplace surround is plaster, painted the same color as the paneling. Simple and classy!
This house was designed and built as a vacation home. Each bedroom has it’s own bathroom, lucky guests! Each bathroom is a little different; different tile and vanity colors, but they still tie together! They are so fun and fresh, I just love how they turned out!
There are so many fun details in this house! One of my favorites is that the drywall texture on the walls mimics plaster, I absolutely love it! The laundry room is super cute too! There is a powder room off of the laundry room, and they converted the garage into a game room. It’s really such a charming and sweet home and every detail was thought out!
Can I just say how blessed we are to work with such incredible people? Truly. We built this home for 2 couples, that tells you right there how great they are! That these four people can work together so well, build a home together, make selection choices together, and still be dear fiends that travel together!! They have become wonderful friends, and we are so excited to be working on another project for them! I will post pictures on that project soon!
In the mean time, thanks for following along!
