A Place for Everything and Everything in its Place

The adage “You can never have too much storage space” is particularly true when it comes to building your new home.  A well designed home will provide ample storage that is smart and well-proportioned within the home.  The storage space should not take away from the living space but allow the living space to fulfill its purpose in your lifestyle, efficiently and enjoyably.  For me that means no clutter!  For others it may mean organized clutter!  Whether you are a collector, artist, athlete, cook, or hobbyist there are a multitude of ways to create great storage for all your things.

Our Two-Storey and Bungalow-Loft plans offer ample storage in the following ways:

  • Three car garage tandem style or oversized garage space
  • Mud room with built-in cabinetry and option for bench storage
  • Walk-in pantry
  • Kitchen islands
  • 9’ ceilings offer taller cabinetry and more shelving in closets
  • Servery providing additional storage space relieving dining and kitchen cabinets
  • Walk-in closets with built-in cabinetry including space for islands to maximize use of the space
