A modern day Prairie home: Under construction

I have family with some really good taste and this home is no exception! My sister and brother in law have built and sold three homes prior to the fourth that they are currently working on. I have to say that I have been impressed with all the homes they have built and designed previous to this one. With every new home comes a unique and different design concept. This prairie style home with the Frank Lloyd Wright influence, the overhanging eves, long horizontal lines, open floor plan and the central chimney, definitely is my favorite.

I love to see creativity when it comes to coming up with a unique exterior design concept that doesn't look like all of the neighbors. I have always been a big fan of taking a classic historic home style and putting a modern day spin on both the exterior and interior. I wish all the new residential builders would catch on to the fact that its okay to build homes that have different colored exteriors, floor plans, personality and style. How much more appealing is it to drive through a neighborhood with all different styles of homes than a neighborhood that looks the exact same. Don't get my started...

My brother in law Tyler is a talented artist with a vision for home design. His family owns a residential construction company in Kaysville Utah called Country West Construction.
Can't wait to see what their next home is going to look like in a couple years.

I will go back and take pictures and post them when the home is complete.

What a beautiful home. Is the room with the double doors going to be an office?

Jim said...

ha. I couldn't agree more with you about every home in Utah LOOKS the SAME. Boring! :)

Love the design, architecture, and love that it's different.

Can't wait to see more of this stylish home.

P.S. What color White is on your walls in your home? It's lovely!

Holly- Good question, I think it might be more of a formal sitting room but I'm not sure.

I will for sure go back and take pics when all the finishing touches are complete.

Jim- In my main floor living area, I used pale silver from Restoration Hardware. It is really light with a slight blue/grey hue.

I absolutely adore this home. I won't get you started on how homes all look the same if you don't get me started:-) If we ever move back to Utah I will certainly take note of your BIL construction company.

How come everyone in your family has great home design?? If you didn't mostly have sisters i should have tried to marry in. That kitchen is going to be beautiful. All of it is even if they didn't even furnish it. BTW i like your new bar cart and what you did with it!

I do not have an estimation but I think it would be few Hundred, Or thousand, Or Hundred Thousand. It depends on the furniture you get and were you get it.
