Inspiration for a custom home can come from anywhere, as we discovered in our work as custom home builders White Rock.
For this retired White Rock homeowner, inspiration came from the ocean — specifically, Semiahmoo Bay. The colours used throughout the home complement the natural ocean scenery and airy beach atmosphere.
To make the most of the ocean views, the home’s most used rooms are on the top floor. The upper floor features an open concept kitchen, living room, and den space. Perfect for entertaining or staring out to sea. The ocean theme continues in wood elements used throughout the home including beach driftwood, blue glass, and natural stone.
For energy conservation and comfort, environmentally-friendly features were added to this custom home. Some of which are low flow bathroom fixtures, Energy Star appliances, a high-efficiency forced air furnace with heat pump, CARB-2 compliant cabinets and flooring, GreenGuard Gold-certified adhesives and sealants, countertops made from all or partially recycled materials, and a rainwater capture system at the back of the house to be used for landscape watering.
Thoughtful Design, Based on Homeowner Lifestyle: Custom Home Builders White Rock
The home owner wanted a clean, uncomplicated layout which took advantage of the ocean setting.
In the finished home, the great-room, den, and deck have perfect ocean views. The main floor features the bedrooms, laundry, and a 2-car garage.
The bedrooms on the main floor face away from the busy Canadian-US border vehicle traffic.
The luxurious ensuite features a walk-in shower and large under-mount soaker tub. The guest rooms each have their own bathrooms.
