HPG-1752-1 – The Remington
I grew up in the western part of North Carolina and left home after graduating from high school. My job moved me around for several years and my family and I finally settled down in Charlotte, NC and eventually I started my own business there. I always had a desire to return to my roots and build a home back there for when I retired.
I had been single for a few years and upon returning home for a school reunion in 2008, I met an old friend that I had not seen in over 30 years. She had retired and moved “back home” the end of 2007. We started dating and before long we realized we were meant to be together. That is when I got busy on house plans.
I looked at “many” house plans, but kept going back to this particular one of yours. We both agreed this was the perfect one. It had plenty of open space and was laid out just the way we wanted. We like the master bedroom with the large bath and walk-in closet (which we changed to one big closet instead of his and hers)and the other bedrooms on the other end of the house.
My favorite parts of this house plan are the open space in the living area, and the really functional floorplan layout. It fits our needs perfectly…
We started clearing the land in February, 2009, and we were married in March. We had a very good builder and things just fell right into place. All the lumber in the house came off my land. We made a few minor changes, such as extending the front bedroom out and the porch a few feet wider. The plans were so easily followed, the builder had no problem at all.
We made the 3 1/2 hour trip weekly from Charlotte to help work on the house. On December 23, 2009, we moved in and spent our first Christmas together in our dream house.
The house sits upon a hill that overlooks the Smokey Mountains and we can see as far as Tennessee.
I am retiring soon and we look forward to sitting on our porch and enjoying the view and our new home.
Thanks for allowing us to use your plan and we would highly recommend your company to anyone interested!
