It started with a ’boutique builder’ building a home for himself in Wickerson Woods; it ended in what you see in the images below. Before he moved in however, a lucky couple toured the home and fell in love. They needed one just like it, but a quick closing was required. The big hearted house craftsman did what was noble and nice. Now the lucky homeowner is enjoying features like walls completely covered with marble and stone, a stunning kitchen with countless cabinets, and impeccable transitional styling. Accents like the touch activated kitchen faucet are characteristics of the builder’s work.
