Making final pick-outs with Beth & Grant!

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:

horton siding

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:

horton wood canvas

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!

horton carpet living the dream

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…
