Starr Custom Homes recently completed two remodeling projects resulting in two happy clients.

The first project, pictured above, was a kitchen and bath remodel for Mark and Walda Starkey.  We took a 20+ year old kitchen and turned it into a 21st century showplace. Dingy, peeling Thermofoil cabinets and aging appliances were replaced with painted and glazed wood cabinets, a custom California island and built-in Thermador appliances, quartz countertops, cross-cut travertine flooring, a marble subway tile backsplash and more.   The bathroom was also completely updated with custom tiles, a large walk in shower, and a rustic furniture style vanity with soapstone countertop.  We’d like to thank our interior designer, Josie Myers, for collaborating on this project.

The second project was for a repeat client, Brian McElyea.  We took an open, upstairs loft and enclosed it for use as a home office.  New paint, flooring and crown moulding finished off the new space.  Plus, we installed a great built-in desk with shelving and plenty of storage from California Closets.  Now, Brian can work from home with quiet, privacy and functionality.

You can read testimonials from both of these satisfied clients here, and check out the DreamDesign 32 album on our Facebook page for before and after pictures of that project.

Dreambuilder Custom Homes is please to announce the completion of Dreambuilder 22, a Spanish Colonial styled home in Pablo Creek Reserve.

Dreambuilder 22 015Located on a beautiful lakefront site in the gated community, Dreambuilder 22 is made for inside/outside entertaining.  Windows and French doors line the rear of the home with gorgeous views, and an expansive lanai provides plenty of entertaining space.  Beautiful stained wood ceilings, an outdoor kitchen and a firepit provide the atmosphere – you provide the fun!

Inside, the four bedroom, five and a half bath, 3,826 SF home provides plenty of space for everyone.  The great room alone is over 400 SF in size and boasts a coffered ceiling and a stunning fireplace with Tabbystone mantle flanked by media built-ins.  The open concept plan unites the great room with lanai, kitchen and breakfast room to create plenty of entertaining space.

Dreambuilder 22 025The kitchen is crowned with a beautiful barrel vault ceiling and stained wood beams, both elements of the Spanish Colonial style.  Semi-custom cabinets and a Thermador appliance package are the cook’s dream.  The cabinetry extends into dual butler’s pantries and a family drop zone on the way to the dining room, which itself features architectural elements such as a furniture niche and a coffered ceiling.

The master suite is privately situated along one side of the house with lake views.  A spa-like master bath features a barrel vault ceiling, free-standing tub and plenty of light.  Kohler and Waterworks plumbing fixtures are featured throughout the home along with Cambria quartz countertops.
