Designing a Functional and Stylish Home for a Growing Family: Schumacher Homes’ Beverly House Plan with Second Owner’s Retreat

Brian and Mary were thrilled when they welcomed their first child, a baby girl named Emily, into the world last year. As new parents, they began to realize their two-bedroom home was not going to work for their growing family. They dreamed of having a larger home with plenty of space for Emily to play and grow, an open concept main floor, a large kitchen for cooking family meals, and a separate guest suite where grandparents could comfortably stay during visits.

After researching custom home builders, Brian and Mary decided Schumacher Homes was the perfect fit to design and build their family’s forever home. Schumacher Homes has over 30 years of experience crafting custom homes to client specifications. With a new baby to care for, Brian and Mary were drawn to Schumacher Homes’ streamlined design-build process and the ability to closely collaborate with their project team. The couple purchased a lot in a family-friendly neighborhood and began working on plans to build their dream home from the ground up.

They had just welcomed their first child and were eager to move out of their small starter home into something larger with room to grow. As they began exploring custom home builders in the area, Schumacher Homes really stood out from the competition.

Schumacher Homes came highly recommended from friends who had built with them before. They had a reputation for quality craftsmanship, beautiful designs, and making the process smooth and enjoyable for homeowners. Brian and Mary were impressed by the variety of floorplans Schumacher Homes offered, ranging from cozy cottages to sprawling estates. This gave them flexibility to find a layout perfect for their needs.

After meeting with the team at Schumacher Homes, viewing sample homes, and evaluating all their options – Brian and Mary felt certain Schumacher Homes was the right choice to build their forever home. The quality, service, experience and value simply couldn’t be beat.

Brian and Mary were excited but nervous to start designing their dream home with Schumacher Homes. As first-time home builders, they weren’t sure what to expect.

Their first meeting with the design team at Schumacher Homes put them at ease. The design consultants explained the whole process step-by-step, answering all of their questions.

Next, they had a discovery session to review home plans that matched their wishlist. Brian and Mary narrowed it down to a few favorites, combining aspects from multiple designs.

The design team then created 3D virtual computer-generated renderings of the home plan variations for the couple to visualize. This technology brought their vision to life, allowing them to make tweaks.

Schumacher Homes helped select interior finishes like flooring, cabinets, lighting, and hardware. They recommended design ideas to optimize the space and flow. When designing their new home with Schumacher Homes, this couple was sure to include special features that would make life easier with their new baby.

One of the special features that drew this couple to build with Schumacher Homes was the option to include a second owner’s retreat. As new parents, having a dedicated space for visiting family or a live-in nanny was appealing.

When designing the second owner’s retreat, the couple worked with their Schumacher Homes designer to customize the layout and finishes. They opted for an open bedroom flowing into a sitting area, large walk-in closet, and spa-like bathroom with dual vanities. Warm paint colors and cozy textiles were chosen to make it feel homey for visitors.

Having the flexibility to accommodate guests and extra help after the baby’s arrival was a major reason this couple chose Schumacher Homes. The second owner’s retreat provides privacy when needed but keeps family close by. It’s already proven invaluable for visits from grandparents and will allow a live-in nanny in the future.

The addition of a second owner’s retreat gave this couple the space they needed to comfortably welcome extended family into their new home after starting their own family. It’s a favorite feature that makes their home uniquely suited to their needs.
