Gwen and Ryan Clark need more living space for entertaining and for out-of-town guests. But they loved living in Hidden Springs and did not want to move. They even considering buying another home in Hidden Springs but that would mean they would have to sell their existing home. Then they heard about the attic transformation we did for Dave and Shelley Baldiga and called us.
Our 2003 Parade of Homes entry – a 2,499 square foot 3 Bedroom 2 1/2 Bath home includes a 428 square foot Bonus Room – affectionately referred to as the “Pumpkin” house by residents of our community.
This two-story charming Craftsman styled home is an incredible floor plan. Like all of Chuck Miller Construction’s homes, this home was designed and built following the Building America Systems Engineering Approach to Home Building. That means it will use 30 50% less energy for heating and cooling.
The base plan is 2,071 square feet with 3 bedrooms and 2 1/2 baths. The kitchen has an angular island that doubles as a snack bar. The breakfast nook is enclosed by windows, making meals feel alfresco. The open concept kitchen, nook, great room, and the dining room defined by impressive columns and beams offer ample space for quiet evenings at home or entertaining friends.
The private study is furnished with an optional built-in desk. Upstairs, the master suite features a compartmentalized bath with an elegant tub and separate shower. The optional 422 square foot Bonus Room above the garage is perfect for a studio, playroom, or even another bedroom and bath. The two-car garage offers an area at the back for storage of a third car, bikes, mower, and sports equipment
The Fanter’s have lived in their home since 2000. It was Hidden Springs Building Company’s Parade Home that year.
The countertops and backsplash were dark brown granite tile which was extremely popular in 2000. The Kitchen featured a large island – approximately 7′ x 7′. It was fine while the Fanter kid’s were small. But it became a problem as they got older. See why and how we solved the problem. — at Hidden Springs.
