Carbine will be revealing another dreamy farmhouse in March 2017 – the House for Hope Designer Show House! 

Contemporary Tuscan Home

Located in the Westhaven, the Contemporary Tuscan, designed by archtitect Preston Shea,  is a building and architectural showstopper.  Interior Designer Bethany Bartels rounded out the creative team for the over 4,000 square foot home – a great example of beauty, function and the perfect place to entertain family and friends.

Carbine VP of Operations Daryl Walny said additional study and building attention-to-detail was required to ensure the garage, driveway and front porch steps all worked in harmony. A creative building solution included a rounded turning staircase, complimenting the beautiful front elevation.

The three-story home is an artistic fusion of stucco, Hardie Plank and brick. Unique interior products included Italian tile on the risers, accordion doors opening to the covered tile porch, sliding barn doors leading to the backyard and kitchen stone accents.  Narrowgate Artisans created the great room wood beams necessitating structural support without compromising the homeowners desire for openness.

Tile was used for an upper level open porch wrapping a turret. More challenging in a wet weather environment, additional work was needed to ensure waterproofing and lasting performance.
