This past week I had a meeting with a builder and a client.  A few minutes into the meeting, the client asked us to list some of the top amenities that new homes in the Pacific Northwest must have.  The builder and I recalled past projects and immediately came up with our top five list.  I thought I needed to share this list.   Just a bit of food for thought in case you are looking to build a home or do an extensive remodel in the near future.

  • outdoor heaters and /or fireplace in covered spaces
  • wine room and /or wine storage accessible to entertaining
  • generator backup for power outages
  • car charging station preferably in garage
  • integrated  and well hidden fire safe

These of course are above and beyond a well developed set of architectural drawings, quality construction, and quality materials.  Imagine yourself with these few additional amenities…….Amen!
