May Madness

We hare busy finishing up all the outside items that didn't get completed for our winter builds and moving on to some new projects that will begin in the next few weeks.

Earlier this month we started our own house and we are getting pretty excited about it! Its fun to be our own clients....I never have to persuade/convince myself to do something a little different! And because it is our own house we can go into detail about the design and build process.

The process of designing the layout of this house began not only with assessing our own needs for the house but also assessing the resale potential for any layout...we are in the habit of building and selling our own homes as well as homes for our clients!
This house is a 2300 square foot family home on 2 levels, but we have designed it so that potential future buyers could have one story living....master and laundry hook up are all on the first floor.  We decided to go with angled ceilings in the upstairs bedrooms and a loft stair area to give it that "old house" character.  The exterior is a farmhouse style with a big front veranda (VERY excited about the front porch!!).

Here is was last week

Hickory Homes Blogger....M.I.A.

2 Months and no posts....Whoa! Sorry about that!  I think you will understand when you hear what's been going on around here lately.

We completed 2 Units in Welbanks Meadows subdivision. One closed April 23 and the other closed April 30th.....below is a sneak peek of those finished homes (website updates are in the works!).

We also completed our custom home in Waupoos...here is a preview of that home...we love the kitchen that William Design did for us there. As you can see the homeowners definitely did some upgrades in the kitchen!

We also sold our own personal house last week, which you can see in our gallery on the website....we are really excited to bring you updates on how that project is progressing. Also, because it is our own home we can give you some insight on the planning and building stages from a homeowners perspective.

We will be putting some holes in the ground for new custom builds in the next couple weeks and we will try and keep on top of the updates here ;)
