The Hunter Creek Home Plan 1326 is under construction in Wilmington, NC!
The Carter family is building The Hunter Creek home plan at Waterberry Plantation in Wilmington, NC. This is the third Donald Gardner home plan that the Carters have built and they plan for it to be their forever home. The homeowner states, “it is important to love the space where you live. Hopefully, this will be our retirement home, so we are pouring a great deal of thought into every material”. In this Rendering-to-Reality story, we will follow the construction process from breaking ground to move in ready! Check back often for updates as the dream home plan progresses!
Update: Completed Photos!
Mixed materials give a rustic feel to this angled floor plan. Inside, coffered and tray ceilings add visual interest and abundant rear windows bring in light. The large island kitchen has a view of the great room and single dining room, a walk-in pantry, and nearby e-space for looking up recipes. Both the utility room and garage offer extra storage and convenient outdoor access. Perfect for relaxation, this plan includes a master bedroom sitting area, rear porch with skylights, and striking octagonal screen porch with fireplace.

Mrs. Carter wanted to repurpose some of the materials from her grandparent’s house that was built by her grandfather in 1932. She selected a screen door to restore and use as a pantry door.
