We are so excited to be dropping another blog post sharing this spec-turned-custom home. This house sold early at framing and lucky for the homeowners, we got to work with them to turn our design into something that felt more them—charming, french provencal. One of our favorite things to do is to collaborate with clients to create their dream aesthetic and this one did just that.
“Oakstone worked with us to realize our French country-style home right in the middle of Iowa. The first time we saw the design and architectural features of the house we were hooked, the sloping roofline and rounded dormer windows were so unique. We wanted to customize our home with design elements that reflected a Midwest take on chateau influence. Oakstone was more than willing to work with us to achieve it with custom elements such as wainscoting, built-ins, herringbone floors, and brass hardware. The design team was supportive of our specific vision allowing us the freedom to choose details yet willing to lend their support and expertise. The end result was exactly the warm, down-to-earth version of the French country-style house we wanted. It satisfies our hearts to have this hand-selected home as a backdrop to so many aspects of our lives, thanks to Oakstone Homes.” —Abby, homeowner
