    Wow! Just wow….we love the Agatha 1500 plan, but these changes have opened our eyes to think outside the box.
    Who would have thought to move a closet and make a larger main bedroom shower and put in a vintage tub. Can’t wait to see the tile choices. Also, what a difference raising the ceilings to 19′ made. Oh, that fireplace will be a show stopper. Hope they put in a thick rustic mantel.
    Building a custom home is rewarding when you have an architect, builder, and clients that work together to make dreams come true. Keep those pictures coming as we cannot wait to see more.
