At some point, in your journey to find the ideal home that’s right for you and your family, you’ll realize that even the most well-designed plan doesn’t have everything you want. The rooms may be too small, the kitchen without sufficient storage. There may be a bonus room, but the bonus room is set up as a den and you want a playroom and an office. All the pieces are there, but nothing is fitting the way you want it to.

As homeowners, we adapt to all sorts of changes. A college student returns and needs a place to stay; your job is now based out of the home and you need a designated office space. As the family changes, so do lifestyle preferences, space considerations, storage needs and so on. Soon enough, we start to see that it’s not just us who need to adapt. Our homes should adapt to us too. Each stage of our lives requires us to adapt, and so must our living space.

While the design has all the important pieces, there are some elements that you want to adjust, change and add to it so that it more perfectly matches your lifestyle and family needs.

A century ago, a family on the hunt for a new home had a fairly simple way of choosing a home design: pick your favorite from the Sears & Roebuck kit home catalog and go on your merry way. Artist renderings of the homes showed you the style concept and basic structure, and they were often given specific names such as “The Hamilton” or “The Chelsea” – a testament to the artistry that went into the design. 

As the years went on, other players such as builders, developers and lumberyards joined the game and offered their services with their own design catalogs....

A dream home doesn’t have to be a fantasy. It doesn’t have to be only wishful thinking that someday your house will have that gourmet kitchen with granite countertops, a home theater with built-in surround sound, or a sauna in the backyard. Your dream home is real because you know what you want, what amenities you desire. You can see it all; picture it down to the last detail, even if it’s all in your head. But a dream home doesn’t have to be just a dream because we want to know what you’re thinking!
