On weekends when Carson and I have time, we enjoy driving around new and old neighborhoods looking for yard sales and open houses. Last weekend we came across a new neighborhood that had about 5 new houses on the lot, and two of them are for viewing. All of the homes are modern from the exterior to the interior, when we opened the front door our jaws basically dropped! From the entrance you can see the small back yard with a pool and a patio on the left side is a casita with it own bathroom. Perfect for guest, in laws or maybe even an office. On the other side was a door that lead to the main home, high ceilings with plenty of natural lighting to make it feel as if you are still outside. The home has two floors with an open concept, everything nook and cranny of the house was designed with great detail. To the hidden pantry, double oven and even dish washer. The home is inspired by Scandinavian design. Imagine a IKEA, West Elm and CB2 all in one, that is how the house would look like. Clean lines, elegant details, very minimal furniture and did I mention that it is a smart house that is GREAT on energy. It even has a TESLA charging station in the 3 car garage, oh did I mention that it was a smart home? Meaning that I can adjust the temperature of the home or shower before I step a foot outside the car?
Now I know some people are wondering…Anne are you in the market for a home? The obvious answer is no. I am not ready to buy a home anytime soon, but in the meantime I can plan by seeing what is out there. Going to open houses makes me think about my future. I will have a husband, a few children, pets, a TESLA, and a home someday in the near future. Until that day comes I can plan out the home that I want to build. Going to these open houses inspire me and push me to keep going. It opens my mind to numerous possibilities, you don’t have to wait until you are ready to buy a house to start looking. Look now search on Zillow, watch Youtube videos, drive around a nice neighborhood, get out and see what is out there. Where you are is temporary. The same applies from a car, a state you would want to live in, a designer bag you’ve been eyeing and ect. Go out and see what is out there, yes you can look online, but seeing it in person is very different. For me it shows me that it is possible, it put a battery in my back to go hard and not to give up.
This is one of the homes that I got to see, the only thing I wish this house had more of is a backyard. You can visit to see more models and blueprints online
