Building our dream home with Windward Construction
Scott and I began looking at models during the parade of homes and fell in love with the St. Martin Model built by Windward Construction. What attracted us was the craftsmanship and unique details in everything from the window and door framing, the kitchen island detail, the tray ceilings and crown molding to the 9ft doors and much more. Our favorite design component of this model was the 45 degree angled patio doors which opened the entire great room/kitchen area to the outside. It was breathtaking. We had some specific ideas of what we wanted our home to look and feel like. Brian Haag and his team listened to our ideas and picked up on words we used like organic, open, natural etc., and incorporated that into our design. They made recommendations during each step of the process. We met directly with various subcontractors to design and select cabinets, flooring, doors, etc.
Once the building got started, Brian and Steve would meet with us on sight and draw pictures to capture ideas based on what we were saying. For example we wanted to incorporate wood and stone into our outdoor kitchen and were not sure how to do that. They came up with a couple of options and the end product turned out more stunning than we anticipated. Brian and his team take a hands on approach guiding us through the process to ensure we didn’t make design choices we would regret and also to ensure the finished product was what we wanted. By the end of the building process we had made new friends of not only Brian and his team but many of the subcontractors as well. We were very involved in the process and felt welcome to express ideas or concerns at any time. The process made us feel like we were part of the team building our dream home.
