Mary and her husband had been involved in several building projects over the years and knew that each one had its own challenges but this custom home would present a whole new challenge itself. Mary lived in Utah and her custom summer home was being built in Ishpeming, Michigan approximately 2,000 miles away. Listen to what Mary had to say:
My situation was unique (and it scared me) because I was building from 2,000 miles away. It was a project I hesitated to begin because I thought the stress would kill me. It turned out to be a better experience than any building I have done and visited daily.
The home consists of a finished walk-out basement with a family room, bedroom, full bathroom and a laundry room. The main floor consists of the master suite, living room with fireplace, dining room, kitchen, half bath, sunroom and a huge covered deck that can be accessed through the dining room or the master suite. The second floor consists of two large bedrooms each with its own full bathroom and a beautiful view of the water. The home qualified as an Energy Star Rated Home due to the attention to detail, quality products and proper air sealing and insulating techniques.
