The Modern Traditional

American traditional home plans is what makes up most of Northern Indiana today.  We love to build them and we love to live in them.  Why, because they feel like home and they have very defined spaces.  This home plan built for our clients is that with a modern spin.  We are so excited when clients come in with a picture or idea of something they saw and would like to implement it in the home. 

The item in this home was the fireplace.  They brought us a picture from a magazine of their dream fireplace and we started getting to work.  The fireplace face was all concrete with ship lap boards chard above.  We started to do research and found the technique is called shou-sugi-ban.  This processed is used to preserve wood by charring it.  The heavily charred surface of board makes the wood fire retardant as well as resistant to rot.  As we studied the technique we realized that it is a Japanese tradition. 

On the exterior of this home you will find a pleasing blend of shake shingles, stone, siding giving this ranch welcoming curb appeal.  When you enter the home you will find a centrally located kitchen island in the open concept living area.  This is a natural design for entertaining.  The patio off the back door is the perfect place for sitting and enjoying your sunny days.  The master suite is spacious and modern with a stand alone tub, 2 sinks, and a walk in shower.  Walk in closet for plenty of clothing storage.  This home is a split plan which means the master is on one end while the other 2 bedrooms and full bath are on the other side of home.  These clients did not want a basement, but instead they turned the attic into a rec room with a TV and bar area.  So much of this home is so spacious and roomy.  Making it affordable and room to grow.  The front room is called a flex space.  Which means if you rarely use a dining room it can become a home office or a work space.  That is what these clients chose to do to make the room more use-able.  We can take any plan and spin the design to make it yours.  mix up art styles, do a bold print on the walls, pick out a unique light fixture, and have fun doing it.  That is what Slattery is known for.  Letting you make your home — your home.  We have won tons of awards for being custom and we would love to share the ideas with you.  Call us and make the appointment today!
