One of the homes featured in the 2017 Birmingham Parade of Homes was the Ideal Home designed and built by Scotch Homes. Their outstanding home has now been featured in the Summer 2017 issue of the quarterly Alabama Homebuilder Magazine.
The magazine is the official publication of the Home Builders Association of Alabama and reaches an audience of approximately 10,000 building professionals and industry leaders across Alabama. It is read by builders, remodelers and others in the building industry, with the result that the homes that appear within its pages can have a far-reaching influence. Building advances, as well as design trends, appear in the magazine and find their way into a broader market, including the home-buying public.
Built in the Willow Branch community in Chelsea, the home is an outstanding interpretation of the Modern Farmhouse. The goal of the design was to incorporate the newest building trends and materials into a home that is an embodiment of southern hospitality. With five bedrooms, four and half bathrooms, and a blend of indoor/outdoor living and spectacular views, the home brings together traditional styles with modern clean lines for a contemporary yet classic feel.
Inside, you find coffered and vaulted ceilings, shiplap, custom bookshelves, wood flooring, and even a barn door that artfully leads to the laundry room. Outside, the exterior uses elements such as board and batten, cedar beams, painted brick and stone flooring to create a charming farmhouse look that fits perfectly into the 21st century.
The design elements were important in creating this modern take on a farmhouse, but equally important were the technical elements that truly make it a modern farmhouse. The incorporation of a Nexia Smart Home System allows the home’s special features to communicate directly with the owner’s smartphone, controlling everything from cameras and lighting to garage doors and thermostats. The ability to interact with your home, even when you’re far away, is one of the exciting new developments in modern home design that is being included in more and more new homes.
If you were unable to attend the 2017 Birmingham Parade of Homes — or just want to see the 2017 Ideal Home again — it is now the permanent model and design home at Willow Branch. The home has already won Scotch Homes new clients as people are excited about incorporating elements of the home into their own home designs.
