Today we finalized choices for “The Fort,” as Beth Horton calls her new MDH build on Daffodil Drive. Here’s a glimpse of all the great materials she and Grant chose!
(And it is like a mini-pinterest board to gaze upon until the actual stuff gets installed in the actual house!)
Let’s review the outside first:
Gray siding with coordinating vinyl shake product in the gables. A great combination! Similar to:
I am actually really excited to see the front door color because they decided to keep that one a surprise for me!
Heading inside, let’s admire their hardwood floor choice:
A warm and rustic wood floor with wide planks and a light distressing. Seen in many of our MDH homes for sale!
Which will match nicely with their stained fireplace surround in French Roast and “white-white” paint for the cabinets, doors and trim.
Speaking of fireplaces- they are framing this detail as we speak! The slightly raised gas insert will be dressed up nicely by this ledge stone:
And the finished look will be similar to this fireplace only without the legs on the wood surround:
Moving on to countertops, they made some great laminate selections for throughout the house with the exception of the kitchen, where the white cabinets will be complimented by a granite called Lennon:

Here we see that great linen LVT tile we saw in- What’s Hot in Tile Showers and other Flooring Trends– paired with a laminate that resembles a solid-surface or corian material, for their main bath upstairs:
For the upstairs laundry room we have this concrete textured laminate that compliments the industrial and rustic quality of the vinyl wood plank floor in a weathered wood gray color:
There really is a lot of grain to these faux wood floors, a perfect solution for a bath or laundry where you might want the warm look of wood but struggle with moisture.
And how about this convincing granite-look laminate for in the Master Bath:
Paired with the travertine look of these LVT floors:
Similar floor installed at 1021 Faversham:
And finally we have the LVT for the Mudroom and powder bath. No counter needed, since the bath will have a pedestal sink and there are no other counters.
The deep gray will look as stunning in their house as it did on this recent custom:
That takes care of the solid surface flooring, but what about the softer side?
Carpet was a bit of a struggle until we decided to pick the ones with the BEST names!
The low nap geometric print is a great carpet for stairs and the lower left corner is the main carpet for the bedrooms and great room. The multi-colors will hide dirt and keep this home family-friendly!
Appropriately (or maybe inappropriately!?!) named “Living the Dream” and “Exotic Ivory.”
And because I just couldn’t help myself:
What more can be said? Soon enough Beth and Grant will be Living the Dream in their new MDH home…
