Home Tour: Modern Design Meets Elmhurst

One of the aspects that makes custom building special is the ability to explore so many different design styles with our clients. We’ve built a number of modern homes over the years and our latest one sits on an expansive corner lot in Elmhurst. Our clients have moved in and furnished their new home and we look forward to sharing a peek inside with you today.

Window placement was a key discussion in the design stages of this home as our clients endeavored to incorporate an abundance of natural light. Floor-to-ceiling windows accompany this show-stopper of a floating staircase. As you make your way upstairs, a cleverly-designed play loft allows for sun to shine straight through the home.
