During the first couple months of this new normal we live in, we went on a lot of walks around our subdivision. When we go on walks, I love to seek out potential lots to build on. I know that finding the perfect lot plays such an important role in someone choosing to purchase a home. We’ve walked past this corner lot many, many times. One day, Roger and I both said to each other, what about this lot? The grass was high, and overgrown, so it was hard to really see the potential it had. When we walked to the middle of the lot and looked out the back, we both said YES, this is it. Well maybe I had to convince Roger a bit, but I knew this was the lot. The view is gorgeous out the back, and its private.
This floor plan, called The Geoffrey, is a combination of homes we’ve already built. I love the main floor layout of the Mabel Two Story plan. So I started there, and then the rest just developed. There are 3 bedrooms on the main floor and 2 bathrooms, and 3 more bedrooms on the lower level! It was also developed based on the lot. We wanted it to be a walk out lower level, and fully finished, so a large family could move right in. This home is all about the view out back. Three 7′ high windows in the living room are the main feature of this home, along with 10′ high ceilings in the living room.
The interior of this home is coastal craftsman design style. I love blues, greens, wood tones and clean lines. Its a timeless and classic style that can combine with many styles. I spend a lot of time making sure the design of these homes feel right. I’ve had a couple of design drafts, but none of them have felt perfect. This one is the right fit.
I also love naming our floor plans. The Geoffrey (pronounced Jo free) is after a dear friend. Her whole outlook on life was choosing joy. She taught me so much about life, we were childhood friends, and that developed into our friendship as adults. I will always be grateful for our friendship and her outlook on life. I feel so much Joy when I get to see one of our projects come to life. It makes me so happy seeing every stage of the home come alive. I know Geoffrey would be so excited to watch these homes go up and see us grow as a company. She was always so supportive.
