The Goal

A lot of hardwood throughout the house, high-efficiency, a healthy home, wanted separate zones in different parts of the house for heating and cooling for different people, circular tray ceiling in dining room, high-end finishes including cabinets and appliances, wanted plenty of guest rooms and space for family, custom tile showers, fresh air was very important, all showers to have handheld sprayers, easy handicap accessibility for most areas,LED lighting throughout, whole-house water filtration system.

A very healthy home with an emphasis on healthy air and specific living temperatures throughout the home. Home needed to be handicap accessible in most areas and have minimal maintenance. Wanted plenty of room for family to stay over and a dining room that was unique and elegant, but subtle.

The Build

We added an Energy Recovery Ventilator (ERV), which continuously exchanges the stale air with fresh air in the home. A whole-house water filtration system was also added to ensure all water being used was free of all harmful discharge, chemicals, and pollutants. Custom master tile shower was made to be handicap-accessible and comfortable. Our team created a custom circular tray ceiling in the dining room, along with hardwood in the common areas to get the luxurious feel that the homeowner was looking to achieve.
