Project Spotlight: Spacious Country Living

Dennis and Denise lived in a beautiful farmhouse in Lancaster County. As the years went by, more “suburban sprawl” was encroaching on their once inactive farmland setting and apartment houses were being built on the land bordering their property. When another complex was started nearby, they decided the time was right to build a new home on some acreage they had purchased years earlier.

Having used Metzler Home Builders to do renovations to their current residence a number of years ago and have been happy with the work that was done, Dennis and Denise called on Metzler’s to build their new home. Jordan listened to their vision for their new house, incorporated their ideas into the plan and designed the “fabulous” house that Dennis and Denise now call home. The result is a lovely, spacious 1 ½ story dwelling situated on a knob with acres of open space and a gorgeous view for miles!

Dennis and Denise are thrilled with their new home and the custom touches they were able to add to make it their own. A favorite feature is the three unique sliding doors they had installed throughout the house. They also love the custom detailed craftsmanship by Skip Butler, the trim carpenter for Metzler Home Builders, including the open shelving in the laundry room and the wooden bench in the mudroom. Other special features include stained shiplap in the master bedroom and lots of large windows to let in natural light. The sunroom boasts whitewashed shiplap on the walls and stained tongue and groove pine on the ceiling. Custom cabinets, shelving and a wine rack—all in the walk-in pantry—give lots of extra storage right off the kitchen.

“We would highly recommend Metzler Home Builders,” said Dennis and Denise. “Janet was a huge help in making the right selections for our home. Barry did a great job as project manager to keep everything moving along on schedule, and the subcontractors were all courteous and did a fabulous job on our home as well. We couldn’t be happier with how it all came together!”
