The Darrah's Custom Home

The home design and building process is a familiar one to the Darrahs, since Mr. Darrah works as a supplier in the industry and Mrs. Darrah's father is a contractor himself. Needless-to-say, Matt felt especially honored to be chosen for the job. As the Darrah's discussed their priorities for the home with Matt, these considerations quickly came to the fore:

Using the inspiration of stately Southern style architecture, while keeping the exterior inviting

Creating spaces for the various activities of each of the four family members (including two teenagers)

Preserving as many of the existing tress as possible and designing additional landscaping for these avid gardeners

Siting the house to take advantage of the corner lot, create private outdoor spaces and capture the best light and views
