The Ideal Home Featured in Alabama Homebuilder Magazine

July 21, 2017 4:01 pm Published by Comments Off on The Ideal Home Featured in Alabama Homebuilder Magazine

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.

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!
