This open floor plan includes 4 bedrooms, 3 full full baths, plus a powder room.
The exterior styling is timeless, mid-century modern with extended overhangs. 80% of the exterior is clad in full brick to minimize exterior maintenance. But we added a hint of horizontal siding detail to highlight it’s modern style.
Several distinctively modern light fixtures are installed in various rooms. A wide, horizontal gas fireplace creates a very special aesthetic in this modern family room.
7 1/2″ wide plank natural oak hardwood floors make a definite statement. They are installed throughout the entire 1st floor, on the stairs and in the 2nd floor halls.
All the interior and exterior door heights are 8ft tall to eliminate the look of often tall and short door mismatching. All of our doors are of course, solid core construction.
A special custom designed, modern style wrought iron railing system will be used in this home. It’s the seemingly small things like this that imply quality; like solid cast door hardware.
The 1st floor ceilings are 9ft tall. The 2nd floor ceilings vary between 8ft and 9ft and the lower level walls are 9ft tall.
European style, high contemporary cabinets create a dramatic feel in this kitchen. We use quartz counter tops to make living easy and worry-free. It is virtually impossible to damage these attractive countertops. Black stainless steel appliances we selected for maximum visual impact.
This large mudroom with these custom built-in and oversized kitchen pantry room will make your life feel more organized. Is that important? So will the master closet is actual a true dresser room because the dressers are built in as part of the full custom closet design.
We think the word “refuge” best describes the beautiful and private modern master bedroom, bath and closet suite. We think it will amaze you. We care about keeping the cost of owning our homes as low as possible. So all the exterior wall joints are caulk sealed from the inside before insulating to eliminate energy wasting air infiltration system. Then we insulate to the highest standard of the Michigan energy code to minimize energy costs. You will recognize the 96% efficiency furnace/ac which is “Bryant” brand with help filter and power humidifier.
Another energy saving feature is as much led lighting throughout the home as possible to reduce the monthly ownership cost to you. The Marvin brand integrity windows in this home provide a future of zero maintenance and upkeep. We’ve taken great care to design a low maintenance, energy efficient home to dramatically lower your monthly cost of owning it.
What you don’t see behind the wall, under the floors and in the hidden places in important. You should know the floor system is made of up engineered floor joists that act like i-beams to stiffen the floor. Then we size them to exceed the Royal Oak building code standard by 50%. To further reduce floor deflection we doubled up the number of floor joists in critical areas such as the kitchen island. We used subfloors which are high quality BASF brand, sealed for zero moisture penetration during construction. We have glued, nailed and just before installing of hardwood, screwed them down again, to eliminate to the greatest extent movement and squeaking. All exterior walls are constructed with the best grade 6″ thick lumber. The roof trusses are engineered precisely for this specific design. While these are important examples, we have many more examples to offer.
