As a means of distraction from our pending adoption, I am attempting to avert my attention to house mode. In all honesty it's not working all that well but I'm giving it a shot none the less. We have had our lot for just under two years and although we imagined we'd have begun building by this point, that isn't how it has turned out. So with that said we have had an abundance of time for research and study and have finally settled on a builder - Jeff Horwath Family Builders - whom specializes in building classic custom homes. Below are two homes whose exterior asthetic we love along with the interior layout. We plan on customizing our home to adequately accomodiate our lifestyle so we may tweek the plans a bit, but these are great starting points for what is to come...eventually.
