After touring one of our other completed homes, our clients engaged us to assist them in finding the right home and property to design and convert into their dream home. Period details coupled with modern amenities including significant home automation and high performance energy conservation techniques were success criteria for this project. The generous flex room at the top of the stairs outside the matching kids’ bedrooms that are tucked into the dormers was a huge hit! Light and connectivity to the outside elements was critical for this client so we utilized a folding wall system to connect the oversized kitchen to the oversized deck and French doors off of the master and bonus room. There are many favorite new details to this home, such as a hutch that converts into a desk with leg-space and some custom pantry storage in the kitchen.
Right from the beginning we felt comfortable with Eric and the Northwest Heritage team. Our project started out working with Chris Barlow on the architectural side who was a great listener and very quickly pieced together the hundreds of Pinterest and Houzz favorites we had collected into a home. The NWHR process saved us time, money, and risk and with full time jobs and young children this was critical. Having access to NWHRs ability to price the project early helps you make sure you can afford what you are designing. Barlow Design Studio knew how to blend modern living with classic architecture helping us achieve some really cool features. There are many more small things like this, add it all together and it simplifies everything if everyone is on the same page.
There are thousands of decisions that need to be made to build a house. NWHR were great at managing all the information and presenting two or three options with costs and aesthetics as part of each decision making our lives as clients much easier. Their willingness to spend time with us to make sure we understood what was going on was much appreciated.
We are so happy with the home that we built and highly recommend NWHR to anyone considering construction project.
