A Home With Your Autograph

When building a custom home, how can you ensure a beautiful house design that is suited for you? After all, your home style is a statement of your unique identity.

Over the years, we’ve seen the landscape of Newport Beach evolve, thanks to custom home builders such as Sailhouse Custom Homes. They offer a wide range of services and are involved in every step of the process – from selecting the location to designing and constructing the home.

We looked at their Sailhouse’s Signature Home offering to understand how they provide the highest quality of design to their clients. Their online portfolio boasts an impressive range of  projects. Distinctive style is highly evident in every project, reflecting the particular aesthetic of the homeowner.

The firm’s portfolio demonstrates its ability to fulfill different tastes, from modern to classic, french to Californian, and traditional to futuristic. Not only are the homes built to impress, they are built to function for the different needs of each homeowner’s life.

Melinda Thomson is a local resident who has lived in Newport Beach for the last 10 years. She heard about Sailhouse Custom Homes through Alex Atia, one of her fellow residents in her neighbourhood, who had a completed custom built home by Sailhouse. “Alex’s custom home became the jewel of the neighbourhood as soon as it was completed. I knew that one day, I too would be the proud owner of a custom home. I reached out to Alex to understand what they had done. I was so impressed to hear how involved the firm was in the design and construction of the home. My main concern was choosing a homebuilder who would be able to execute my vision.”

Melinda describes her style as modern french country. She says that her home’s primary function is to be a space of creativity for her busy family of 3 gifted children. “I wanted a spacious foyer that went straight into the living room so that my children would feel welcome and excited to come home from school every day. My daughter paints and my two sons make pottery. I wanted to have a large living room to basically serve as a creative studio for them.”

Her requirements required some careful planning to choose the appropriate location. Luckily, Sailhouse was diligently involved in choosing the best site for construction. “I also wanted the living room, which would end up being the creative studio, to have large windows facing the sun to let in as much natural light as possible. Sailhouse chose the perfect site and created the perfect design to make my dream into a reality.”

Today, the custom home builder is expanding across Newport Beach, transforming lives, one house at a time. We are impressed by their dedication and expertise, and we can’t wait to see their future projects. If you are interested in turning your custom home dreams into reality, you can give them a call.

The Mysterious Uncle Harvey

The Mysterious Uncle Harvey

 

Tyler and Kelsey’s wedding had been a beautiful whirlwind. When they returned home from the wedding they began to open their gifts. One gift stood out above the rest for its interesting and unbelievable nature.

Tyler and Kelsey could not believe it as they read through the card Kelsey’s uncle had sent. The card read,

Dear Kelsey and Tyler,

Congratulations on your special day! It is a beautiful thing to find somebody who you love and who loves you. I hope you two will cherish each other for years to come and have a beautiful life together just like your Aunt Edith and me.

My gift to you is a new home to house your beautiful memories in. This home is fully paid for and, plot twist, it has not been built yet. Contact the builders at Sailhouse Custom Home Construction to start designing your dream home. There will be no budget for this house, I just hope you will build a home to share many happy memories in.

Love,

Your Uncle Harvey

What made this strange, in addition to being gifted an entire house, was the fact that to Kelsey’s knowledge she did not have an Uncle Harvey. There was no return address on the card, just the letter and the contact info for Sailhouse Custom Home Construction.

They could not help but think their friends were pulling a prank on them. Tyler laughed and said, “Well thanks, Uncle Harvey. Let’s give our new home builders a call.” Kelsey laughed too as Tyler began to dial the number for the alleged Mike. To their complete surprise though a man answered.

“Hello this is Mike with Sailhouse Home Construction,” the voice on the other end of the line said.

Tyler looked at Kelsey in shock, “Um, hello this is Tyler. My wife’s uncle had given us your information about building a new house.”

“Oh yes Tyler, I was wondering if you two would ever call. How was the wedding? Beautiful I hope. Why don’t you guys come in tomorrow and we will get all squared away on the plan so we can start construction. That is some uncle of yours offering to pay for everything!” He replied, “How does noon tomorrow sound? My office is here in town.”

“Wow, sounds great,” Tyler replied.

The next day they went into their meeting with Mike and sure enough, Kelsey’s uncle had already paid for everything. They worked with Mike to draw up the plans for their dream house and 4 months later it was time to unveil the masterpiece.

Tyler and Kelsey showed up at 9 AM for their final walk through and they could not believe their eyes. The house had a beautiful large yard, a gorgeous kitchen, six bedrooms, four bathrooms, a great living space for entertaining, and more.

They were so happy with Mike’s work Kelsey could not help but give him a huge hug. Their only regret was never being able to track down her mysterious Uncle Harvey and thank him. They had asked all of their family members and nobody knew anything about an Uncle Harvey… or so they said. Maybe someday they would find out the truth about him but until then they would most certainly enjoy their new home.
