Scotch Homes & Land Development Group, Inc is so excited to to build the 2017 Ideal Home in our Willow Branch community in Chelsea, Alabama. Scotch Homes was commissioned to be the builder on this exciting project by the Greater Birmingham Association of Home Builders and couldn’t be more honored to be a part of the event. The concept for the home was created by the team to emulate a true Modern Farmhouse with the charm of warm, inviting, Southern Hospitality mixed with the on trend housing features that are coming to the market.

Sitting atop a majestic ridge with views for days from the front door and back door and everywhere in between. As soon you pull up to the home you will immediately fall in love with the charm of the Farmhouse exterior with on trend painted brick, board and batten, cedar beams and stone patios. Enter into the soaring foyer to find your self in the midst of a fashion forward yet warm and inviting take on urban meets country side.

The 12 ft coffered ceiling, built in bookcases surrounding the shiplapped fireplace in the family room are not to be outdone by the fabulous 16ft all glass Western sliding door that creates an additional living space into onto the outdoor patio with outdoor kitchen including built in Coyote Gas Grill and Refrigerator. The dining area with soaring vaulted ceiling and warm trim accents is the perfect spot for the farm table for the whole family to sit and fellowship.

Inside the large chefs kitchen boasts a professional GE Café Appliance selection with a gas cooktop, built in oven, state of the art built in Kuerig Refrigerator and Monarch cabinets that go all the way to the ceiling. The 9ft plus waterfall wrapped silestone island and backsplash is breathtaking yet durable enough for cooking, entertaining and even homework with the kids.

Speaking of kids, the quaint dutch door that leads into “loading zone” off of the mud room is a perfect place to drop off the back packs and groceries when entering. The main level includes a spacious study/office perfect for working from home as well as a spacious master suite with a vaulted tray ceiling and sitting nook for enjoying the sunrise in the morning or a book in the evening. Once you enter into the Master bathroom you will think you have stepped into your own personal with serene marble accents,  the ultra mod free standing tub and 2 person shower with glass from floor to ceiling.

Upstairs is enough room for all the kids and guests ranging from oldest to youngest with an amazing TV Loft/Lounge centering the entertainment area of that level. This home is an amazing marriage of traditional farmhouse meets transitional modern amenities from the  rich dark 7″ hand-scraped hardwood flooring, and barn door leading to the laundry room to the Smart Home features by Nexia to the latest in trend lighting and plumbing by Fiess and Moen. This home is one you will never want to leave.

We can’t wait to share with you the progress as we go as well as the finished product!

Client Testimonials

We had a wonderful experience having our home built by Wayne Scotch and the Scotch Homes Team. They were very patient in helping us get ready to start the project and even helped us find the perfect location. He was always available to help us through each step and to explain everything. Wayne's wife, Stefani, works hard behind the scenes to make sure that orders are placed and deadlines are met. She is also available to answer questions and to make recommendations! We felt that our house was always of the utmost importance to Wayne and his team! Now that the house is finished, we are so glad that we had Scotch Homes do the building. The quality and workmanship in our home is very obvious. Wayne and the entire Scotch Homes team are extremely honest, caring people and their Christian concern is a huge part of their business. There could not be a better company or a better builder anywhere than Scotch Homes. We recommend them highly and we are very grateful that we found them!Jim and Maria Brandt
After living in the same home for 28+ years, we decided to build a home. We feel so fortunate to have contracted with Scotch Homes and Land Development for the project. Scotch Homes listened to what we wanted in our new home, provided house plans that met our needs and made wonderful suggestions throughout the building process. We were amazed at the progress each day when we visited the construction site. Scotch Homes constructed a quality built home that we love, in a very convenient location on a great lot! Their team provided us with contacts for selections of our lighting, flooring, etc, emailed me when selections were due, and provided a valued opinion about selections when I asked for her help. Not only are we thankful that Scotch Homes built our home, we also are blessed to now call them our friends.

From the moment we met with Scotch Homes, they listened to all the different things we wanted to include into our new home. They discussed every step. The budgets we had for brick, lighting , flooring and even the landscaping were generous enough that I could stay in budget and not go over.

Besides being a great builder Scotch Homes is a great company that takes pride in their work. I recommend Scotch Homes to everyone I meet. If you have thought about building a home with Scotch Homes ,I promise, you will have a wonderful time!
