Hunter Creek Home Plan | Rendering To Reality

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!

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.

Part 3 – September 5th, 2018

Exterior Finishes & Insulation:

The siding is installed and ready for paint. The Carters chose Sherwin Williams Illusive Green for the siding, SW Gauntlet Gray for the trim, and a stain for the wooden accents. The stone will be delivered soon!

Inside, insulation is complete along with HVAC duct work. The beautiful quartzite counter-tops have been delivered from Brazil and are ready to be cut.

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.

They already know what each room will be, but are most excited for their playroom which will be Narnia themed! The playroom with be in the second bedroom closet which the Carter’s modified to be 12′ x 6′. They also opted to eliminate the octagonal screened porch, screening in the center rear porch instead, and opened up the wall dividing the kitchen and great room.
