Home Bunch - Interior Design Ideas

Farmhouse exterior with metal roof and brick accent. In an effort to get that old southern charm with a coastal/farmhouse flair, and the feel of an older home, we bricked the main section of the home and painted it a light cream, leaving the skirt brick exposed. To break it up and give some interest, we used wide plank James Hardie siding on the one story section of the home. It too, has the exposed brick skirt. Also on this section of the home, we used board and batten on the gable. We kept the design very symmetrical, with clean lines, classic elements and no fuss trim.

Have you ever imagined selling the house you live in and building your dream home? How about building it with your own hands? Yes, this is what Allison from @theclevergoose, with the help of her husband and her father, did! They not only built the house you’re about to see but they also designed every little detail – like Allison said to me another day; “we were able to design and choose every single item down to the lumber and nails and this helped us to save a ton.  By building this home ourselves we had instant equity.”

I started this Beautiful Homes of Instagram series to showcase talented homeowners that work hard to bring their own personality and create a home that’s all theirs. Here, you will get to know a story that should not only inspire you to do more for your own home, but it will also teach a beautiful lesson that a united family can truly make dreams come true.

 

About a year and a half ago, my husband and I were on the search for a home with a larger lot, preferably one with a swimming pool or at least a lot suitable for adding a pool. After quite a bit of looking, and a couple of rejected lowball offers on homes that needed complete renovations, we were feeling a little blah. One lazy, boring Sunday afternoon, we came up with the wild idea to build on the 5 acres we’ve owned for nearly 10 years and to save some money by cutting out the builder and self-contracting this project. We, (Meaning me. Hubby was not on board) decided we could further save money by completing a lot of the work ourselves. There was one hitch in this self-contracting idea and that was, we knew we’d need the help of my dad. My dad is a wonderful carpenter, all around Mr. Fix It or Make It from Scratch and knows so much about building homes. You see, he built his and my mom’s home….Literally, he completed all the work himself (other than the electrical and plumbing). While my dad was ecstatic we were building next door to him (my parent’s live on the lot next to ours), he wasn’t too thrilled about helping us do it ourselves. 18 hours after I told him the good news, he had a builder on our property discussing the project!

About a week into our decision to build, we had designed our house and floor plan. We didn’t waste any time! We searched high and low for the perfect house plan with no luck, so I decided to draw my own. We measured out the exterior dimensions of the size of home we wanted and that would fit well on our lot, then we figured the dimensions of all of the rooms and hallways and how they would fit into the space. We designed every element, all of the cabinet details and layout, counter depths, shower sizes, trim style and width, etc, as well as exterior details such as column design and placement, roof lines and pitches. We planned every single little detail of our home. Once the interior and exterior plans were how we wanted, we sent them to a man who turned them into actual blueprints. When we finally had our blueprints in hand, we got a bid from our builder and it was jaw dropping expensive! So much so, my dad caved and said he’d help us self-contract it. Thanks daddy!

It ended up taking us just over 6 months to build from the start of excavation to finish (well, is it ever really finished?). Not only did we end up self-contracting, we also completed a few more finishing details than we originally planned. Some include: painting the entire exterior and interior of the home which included filling holes and caulking exterior and interior trim, sanding, priming and painting all of the trim and cabinets, tiling the accent kitchen wall and backsplash, showers and shower/tub combo, removing downed trees for pool area, sanding and finishing all hardwood floors as well as other odd jobs such as installing attic stairs, return air vent and many other odd details. We spent many, many hours and days working on this house. Lots of love, sweat, and a little blood and tears went into this home.

When designing our home, we wanted something that felt old, had character, and was classic. We wanted a Southern home with big front and back porches. For the interior, we wanted the same feel as the exterior, but maybe with a slight coastal feel. There’s nothing I can’t stand more than a home with one style on the outside and a completely different style inside. Cohesiveness in and out, and throughout the interior was important to us. We didn’t want an open concept layout, yet we wanted it to feel open. I wanted light and bright, lots of windows, and hardwood floors throughout with classic hexagon tile in the bathrooms. I kept the same elements, colors and materials the same or very similar throughout….Again, cohesiveness.

Another big decision we made was to put all of the bedrooms upstairs. In our last home, like most homes built in recent years, the master was downstairs and all of the other bedrooms and the bonus room was up. While it was nice to have some separation from the kids, I didn’t like THAT much separation. We could go an entire morning or afternoon without ever seeing the kids. They had full rein of the upstairs and would only come down in search of food. We wanted our family to be around each other more. Therefore, in our new home, we designed it with all of the living areas downstairs and the only rooms upstairs, are the bedrooms and their attached bathrooms and the laundry room. Our upstairs is truly the sleeping quarters.

Downstairs consists of the kitchen and adjoining keeping room. Since the kitchen is always the heart of the home, we wanted to make it to where we could have a sitting area for guests and family to relax and chat while we’re cooking or a place to sit on snowy days with a cup of coffee and gaze out the large windows at the beautiful landscape. Off the keeping room is the dining room. In an effort to have that open feeling, but to still to have divided rooms, the doorway out of the dining room and into the entryway/foyer, was designed to be 8′ wide. To the other side of the foyer is another 8′ wide doorway into the living room. The living room was designed to be our main sitting/tv area when company is over. Down the foyer, past the staircase, we designed a back hallway, which also is very close to the back door and is meant to be somewhat private. This hallway leads back to the kitchen, after passing the mudroom, the walk-in pantry on one side and a small office on the other. Further down the main foyer hall, towards the back door we wanted a full guest bath and for it to be very accessible to the pool. Across from the full guest bath is a family/tv room. This room is almost hidden as it’s to the left of the back of the staircase. I really wanted to have a more private feel in this area. We designed this room to have a pocket door so that it can be closed if using as an overnight guest room. We also designed this room to be perfect for overnight guests by putting the downstairs full guest bath directly across the hall.

To bring in that Southern coastal feel, we had lanterns with the look of gas burning, and we used expose brick piers under the porches and tied them together with cream painted wood slats (still have to install on the front porch). The plans for this home also include shaker style shutters on the front (which match the shaker style cabinet doors inside)…Maybe one day we will get those shutters made and installed. I’m sure you all know, how owning and creating a home is a never ending process. As of now, we’ve lived in this home 8 months and we’re still making adjustments and improvements to the exterior and I’m still furnishing and decorating the inside. But that’s okay! I actually love adding pieces slowly as I like to fill my home with items that have some meaning or were gathered during family vacations. With that all being said, I hope you enjoy the tour of our home and possibly find some inspiration when designing or updating your own home!

I designed the tall cabinet by the refrigerator with an outlet inside to house and use the coffee pots on the shelf at waist level. The Kitchen Aide mixer also resides in this cabinet.  The drawer directly below the coffee pots, houses coffee mugs, filters and wine glasses. Further down, are serving platters and table linens. The island is designed so that there’s a built-in paper towel holder near the sink, and a built-in place for the microwave. There’s also plenty of storage for small appliances as well as seasonal items and cookbooks.

A walk- in pantry stores our food, brooms, and other kitchen items that are seldom used, as well as seasonal decor.
