The flooring in a wood-like tile called Burton Oak adds a rustic yet refined ambiance. 

A German schmear fireplace, expertly crafted by the Paynes’ contractor, adds character to this inviting home. 

Not to miss is the thoughtful addition of a dog wash station in the laundry/utility room, catering to furry family members.

The beams and trusses are stained in Early American and sealed with an outdoor-rated sealer, complementing the overall aesthetic. 

The roof features a 6/12 pitch and is made of galvalume, while the siding is white metal with black gutters. 

The house includes both a covered porch and a covered patio, offering inviting outdoor spaces. 

The fireplace’s exterior, located at the front of the home, displays a German schmear finish skillfully applied by their contractor, adding a touch of character to the house’s facade.


The interior exudes warmth and elegance with its choice of materials and colors. 

The wood used throughout the space is knotty alder, stained in the inviting shade of Early American. 

The walls are painted in the soothing tone of Agreeable Gray, creating a calming atmosphere.

An open concept layout seamlessly connects the kitchen and living area, fostering a sense of spaciousness and continuity. 

The flooring boasts wood-look tile in the charming Burton Oak, contributing to the classic and timeless color scheme present throughout the interior.

Living Area

In the living area, comfort meets a personal touch with a Joybird sectional couch adorned in a custom cover made from bleached drop cloths. 

The spacious 20’ x 21’ area, not even accounting for the open kitchen, offers ample room for relaxation. 

Initially worried about the foundation’s size, Allie assures that the space feels larger than it appears, offering a delightful surprise beyond the initial impression.

A gas fireplace featuring Greyson brick adds coziness and charm to the room, complemented by the 9-foot walls that enhance the sense of openness and comfort.


The kitchen exudes elegance and functionality with its custom-built 6’ x 9’ island, painted in Van Courtland Blue color by Benjamin Moore.

The dishwasher and a farmhouse sink are also located in this island.

An eye-catching gold pot filler over the stove complements the gold sink faucet, while the café gas cooktop (with a custom-made range hood) enhances the cooking experience.

The cabinet hardware, champagne bronze pulls from Wayfair, adds a touch of sophisticated charm to the bright white cabinets, albeit appearing lighter in some lighting conditions.

The coastal quartz countertops and subway tile backsplash contribute to the room’s modern aesthetic, accentuated by gray grout. 

The space is equipped with an icemaker in the nook, adding both convenience and style to this beautifully designed kitchen.

Master Suite


The master bedroom exudes a charming ambiance with its Pottery Barn bedding set and a distressed headboard and footboard that resonate with antique elegance after being refinished.

The queen-sized bed, an antique find, stands as a refined centerpiece in the room. 

Connected to this haven is the master bathroom, which offers a spacious walk-in shower, providing comfort and luxury within this beautiful space.

Walk-In Closet

Also accessible from the master bedroom and bathroom is the walk-in closet, boasting a customized closet system spanning 7’ x 13.5’, expertly designed by the builder.


Completing the luxurious ambiance is a chandelier poised over the tub, accompanied by a window that invites natural light into the area.

Adding to the allure is a lighted vanity mirror, meticulously crafted by assembling three light strips and integrating them into a custom-made mirror. 

The doorless shower area provides convenience, allowing for a seamless transition from the shower to drying off without the hassle of cleaning glass. 

Within the shower, the flooring showcases intricate pebble tiles while black and white decorative tiles accent the shower walls.

The open shower design offers convenience, facilitating an effortless move from showering to drying.

The master bathroom boasts personalized touches curated by Allie, including gold-framed mirrors adorning the dual sink vanity, handcrafted by her.

The fixture color palette resonates with champagne bronze, lending an elegant touch to the space.

Dog Wash Station

The dog wash station, situated in the laundry/utility room, provides accessibility from the garage and back porch, ideal for cleaning Allie’s American Bully dogs. 

It features similar tiling to the master bathroom, showcasing a pebble floor and black and white accent tiles.
