ABOUT THE PREVIEW TOUR:
The site of the parade is absolutely gorgeous! The views out just about every window in every house was just perfectly scenic with rolling hills, mature trees and the golf course! The trends that I noticed this year is a strong focus on the master retreat. They are not just larger bedrooms anymore! They come with luxurious spa like en suites and relaxing sitting areas that are like a room within a room! The open floor plan still seems to be the desired layout complete with large gourmet kitchens. All of the homes I toured had standard ceiling heights of at least 10ft which made the homes feel very open and airy. I also heard a lot of the builders talking about their use of larger windows to create a connection with outdoors which as a big Frank Lloyd Wright fan I absolutely love! I was pleased to see that the color trends are still favoring the blues and grays as well as the greiges. I particularly noticed the use of a lot of pretty dark shades but you almost didn't notice because the houses were so open and bright.
WEAVER CUSTOM HOMES:
How spectacular is this kitchen?! I love white cabinets and those pendant lights just make the room, I think! The Weaver home has a great neutral palate and they used pops of red to liven things up!
The builder went with a gigantic stand up shower and no tub which I know is a more practical choice that people are going with in recent years but is not something I would personally choose. What do you think?
The Fischer home is the largest and most expensive in the parade and of course my overall favorite- I have expensive taste! It's a great family home that is perfect for entertaining! Love the exterior color and materials except for the little oval window at the highest point. I feel like it looks dated. That is one of my only complaints about this home though! The rest is gorgeous!
This is the front entry. I love the rolling barn doors on the office.
