Gourmet cooks are going to love the Beachtown Dreamhome's amazing kitchen.


Again, I am always shocked by how much work is done between our visits.  This past weekend, we finalized the details of our exterior paint plan and were thrilled to see the dark hardwood floors, carpet, kitchen lights, and cabinet hardware all installed. 

Our “Something’s Gotta Give” inspired kitchen is nearly complete and our Seaside, Florida inspired coastal vernacular beach home is just weeks away from being done. 

We have decided to hold our second open house over labor day weekend. So if you have been secretly reading this blog and have been wanting to tour the home for yourself, please plan on attending.  Stay tuned to our blog for official open house hours.  

Until then, enjoy the new pictures in the gallery!

This "Something's Gotta Give Kitchen" looks great with the new paint.


It is amazing what our builders have accomplished in just two weeks.  All interior painting is completed.  All trim work is done.  Cabinets are fully installed.  And our amazing Barn Door Room divider is finished and installed.      

The interior sliding barn door might very well be one of my favorite surprise features in the home.  When fully opened, the entire first floor flows from front porch to back.  When closed, you have an entire suite closed off from the rest of the home.      

Enjoy the pictures.  I’ll be posting more in the coming weeks as we complete our cabinet hardware, bathroom accessories, ceiling fans, and exterior paint selections.

Beachtown Dream Home cabinets and oversized island.


Well…it has been a long time since my last blog entry and a ton has changed in the home.  Our builder let the trim carpenter loose and he has done an absolutely amazing job making the cabinet and built-in elevations an amazing and beautiful reality.  We have added and updated pictures on the gallery page.

Kraftmaid cabinets were the obvious choice for the Beachtown Dream Home Kitchen


Very exciting news. Our builder has starting the process of installing the kitchen cabinets.   As I called out in an earlier post about our laundry room, we selected Kraftmaid cabinets with a Shaker style door  in a dove white factory finish.  This door style is great in that even the smaller drawer fronts have the shaker style framing rather than a plane flat front.      

We think we achieve that nantucket beach home look and feel with our cabinets and design.  (see earlier post on Something’s Gotta Give inspired kitchen).  Just as in the movie, the island is very spacious.  The aisles are generous.  And there is plenty of storage and seating.       

We haven’t yet finalized the cabinet hardware, but I am pretty clear on what I think would look best.      

I have posted the cabinet schematics on our plans page.  Check them out!
