Finally met my neighbors the other day who built a gorgeous modern home. I'd been checking out their blog for a while after a mutual friend of a friend sent it to me. It's a very nicely designed home, with lots of clean lines, open space and light. They used green materials and were able to economize in some areas with Ikea elements such as closets that they built in. As I've said before, it's nice to see a new home that doesn't cover the entire lot and overwhelm the the neighbors, with a design that is interesting and attractive. It's not some cookie-cutter off-the-shelf Home Depot plan that has no character.
They have a sweet little kitty named Mango, too. Who didn't know what to make of Sophie.
