A Peek Into The Future of Custom Homes

Over the last 25 years, we’ve seen trends come and go. We’ve designed more than 17,500 unique homes— no two are the same. We’ve learned about what inspires you so that we can continue to create homes that are not only beautiful but practical for your family and daily life. In 2018, more so than ever, homes will be designed and built with one specific goal in mind: making your life easier. Here are our home design trend predictions for 2018:


Modern Farmhouse: 
A modern take on an American classic. Exterior elements such as black windows, board & batten siding and metal roof accents give this style of home great curb appeal. Interior features like shiplap wall treatments, a farmhouse sink and exposed wood beams truly define the term modern farmhouse.



Large Pantry:
Walk-in pantry, messy kitchen, butler’s pantry—whatever you want to call it, storage is a necessity. We know life can be messy.  A spacious clutter free and organized walk-in pantry will save you time and stress. You can rest assured knowing everything you need is available in one glance.



Pocket Office:
The perfect space to get work done. Organization is a breeze with this designated workspace, ideal for storing your office essentials. Your calendar, daily planner and bills finally have a place they can call home. A pocket office is the perfect solution for the modern day family.



Quartz Countertops:
Maintenance free and stain-proof, Quartz will stand the test of time and provide beauty and warmth for years to come. Quartz countertops are virtually indestructible. More homeowner’s today are turning to quartz vs granite.




Feature Windows: Fill your home with natural light. Large energy-efficient windows are a great way to capture views and  make the connection between the indoors and nature.
