Thank you to John and Kimberly Creo for allowing us to share their beautiful Craftsman home. Builders Jeff and Debbie Bartholomew of JWB, Inc. did an excellent job with this design. With some modifications, the Creos were able to create their dream home. Enjoy the full album on our Pinterest Page!
Columns, arches, and custom millwork. The smallest details received the utmost attention in this fabulous interior.
Neutral does not have to mean dull – Soaring ceiling vaults, massive windows, and the right pops of soft colors create an inviting space with lively atmosphere.
This sophisticated kitchen features black and white cabinetry, expansive counter tops, and tons of storage – all under a soaring coffered ceiling with recessed lighting.
This family studio is the ultimate utility room! Storage, workspace, and a convenient place to keep pet supplies, all in an area with plenty of natural light and room to move!
This new Jasper Hill home is a vibrant hillside retreat!
Nautical decor and soft-hued colors transform this mountain home plan into a lakefront getaway. Step inside and immediately take in amazing rear views through the towering bay windows along the rear of the home. Pale blue walls with white trim work create a cheerful atmosphere that melds with the outdoors. The main level features an oversized great room, octagonal dining room, gourmet kitchen, bedroom/study and an fabulous owner’s suite with spectacular master bath.
The walkout basement has been modified to accommodate the dramatic slope of the lot, creating a massive rec room with volume ceilings. The downstairs bedrooms are spacious and enjoy views of the lake. Guests can make coffee in the full wet bar and take it to the covered patio to watch the sunrise.
The huge bonus room has closets and a full bathroom, and features custom bunk beds that play into the nautical theme – a dream for children or grandchildren!

Command centers and built-in desk areas are ideal for a multitude of tasks
Built-in e-space in the kitchen of the Newcastle Plan #994
Stay organized with a dedicated workspace
Busy families need a home plan that not only emphasizes their personal style, but is also convenient and functional. More and more activities in the home are centered around the kitchen, and Don Gardner Architects has created the e-space to offer even greater functionality in the area where family members congregate. An e-spaces are like the command centers of the home, and function as an accessible place for the family computer — perfect for looking up recipes, paying bills, doing homework or supervising younger users. E-spaces also serve as a place to charge cell phones, MP3 players and other electronic gadgets.
A larger e-space, like the one in the Drayton Hall Plan, is well suited to be a small home office or homework area. It’s open to the living areas, allowing conversation flow and a pleasant atmosphere.
Small corner office
The large, semi-private e-space in the Fincannon Plan is almost a full home office. It’s still open, but is set back from the living areas for a quieter place to focus. Cabinets and built-in L-shaped desk mean tons of storage and room to work.
If you do a lot of work from home, or prefer a workspace where you can shut out the busy world around you, a home design with a study or home office may be the best fit. The Laurelwood Plan has a study right off the foyer that welcomes you with French doors, a stately coffered ceiling, and a bay window. Many of our home plans include a bedroom/study, to use whichever way is ideal for your household.
