Modern touches enmesh with craftsman comfort to create exquisite oasis

If chic urbane and country craftsman had a baby, the offspring would be the home at 333 White Star Circle. Situated in the serene Granite Park subdivision just off Central and 54th Street in Billings’ burgeoning West End, the home offers that living-in-the-country but close-enough-to-commute vibe. “We really focused on new-age extras with this home,” said builder Todd Brown, “and not just the layout and design. The home is integrated with whole-home automation, WiFi-controlled security, thermostat, sprinklers, blinds, you name it.”

Featuring a cozy, community feel where residents watch after and take care of each other, the home welcomes guests onto its country-style porch with open arms. Inside, the main floor is splashed in contemporary ashen grey and outlined with white trim, perfectly offset by spritely uses of complementing color throughout.

With a wall of windows framing the Rimrocks to the north, the sleek look of glass acts as a sharp contrast to the rough and rugged butte while the cool elongated glass mosaic title of the corner fireplace echoes the beige, taupe and cream hues of the outdoors. “We wanted to make the most of these spectacular views from every point in the home,” says Linda Buscher. “Then we made every effort to bring the outdoors in through the use of color and materials while still incorporating modern touches.”

Doug Wild, general manager and designer with Classic Design Homes, has an eye for detail. “Subtle touches, slight deviations from the norm can make a huge impact,” he said. It’s these nuanced touches that set apart the already inviting home at 306 Summer Sky. And while Classic Design Homes is featuring two homes on this year’s tour, they are distinctly different. “This home sticks more closely to our signature, country-craftsman style, while the other has more of a contemporary vibe,” Wild said. “In this home, we used a warm, earth-toned color palette— which you might expect—but integrated small twists along the way.”

Not every house plan works on every lot. And, not every lot is for every house. But, Beau Thompson of Thompson Homes found the perfect combination in this year’s Parade home—a two-acre lot that offers views of Seven Mile Creek and nearby state land—a potential paradise for a town dweller who still yearns for a bit of wild land. With 3,175 square feet of living space, ample windows to capture the view and earthy tones, this four-bedroom, 2-1/2 bath, prairie craftsman is right at home on the range.

Love Me Tender As your eyes adjust to the onslaught of rustic charm and elegance in Todd Brown’s Parade home at 318 White Star Circle, be sure to note the anchor behind the beauty. Underfoot, Brown has integrated a state-of-the-art helical pier foundation beneath the home, providing optimal stability and support. But Brown’s approach to building isn’t all about strength and rough edges. The quality and foundation in this home is tempered by creative craftsman touches—a true melding of the architect and the artist.

This year’s Image Builders Parade Home takes many concepts of the mid-20th Century and turns them on their head. Large veneer wall panels become decorative elements. Tempered glass windows replace door panels on the large garage doors. And, structural ironwork becomes art. The home is a study of light and dark. A ying and a yang. A juxtaposition so obvious, yet so subtle, that it is barely perceived—it simply must be viewed to be believed.

Rustic luxury meets western hospitality in this stunning Ironwood home with automated add-ons

Modern metropolitan meets country craftsman in this West End wonder Amid windswept wheat fields in Billings’ West End is a contemporary-chic sanctuary crafted by Classic Design Homes. Located at 5901 Foxtail Lane, this three-bedroom ranch-style home offers all the modern amenities of a studio loft with the comfort and serenity of an Aspen ski lodge.

Ban Construction’s Parade home at 4141 Woodcreek Drive is the perfect marriage of technology and timeless beauty. Outfitted with Control Four ™whole-home automation—which controls the garage, lights, home audio, security and more—the home’s chic urbane feel enmeshes perfectly with contemporary country touches.

6330 Canyonwood Drive Classic Craftsman Redux A modern interpretation of classic prairie-style architecture creates a sophisticated blend of minimalism and luxury

Over the years, Rick Stordahl, designer and project manager with Wells Built Homes, has built hundreds of beautiful, mountain lodge-inspired homes. So when the time came to plan for the 2013 Parade of Homes, he was eager to design something fresh. The genesis of Stordahl’s vision came from classic craftsman architecture which emphasizes horizontal elements with an organic aesthetic. By infusing artful lines, glazed surfaces and modern textures to the archetypal structure, Stordahl created a one-of-a-kind Parade home that oozes sleek sophistication.

Increasing your credit score could save you thousands of dollars over the life of a 30 year mortgage!

Build 2 Savings Build savings for a down payment, and closing costs. Calculating what you can afford

A rough estimate - figure your monthly payments will be between 0.75% - 1.15% of the purchase price. This includes taxes and insurance.

Many factors affect your payment amount Buying in a low rate environment is preferred. It will mean lower payments with less money going to interest. Consider if paying points is right for you.

Rate & Points

Shorter terms save money on interest but increase payments

Payments are more affordable when you have lower rates

For more inspiring home ideas, go to pinterest.com/ billingsgazette

Down payment With 20% down, no PMI is required, so this would be ideal. The min down payment is 5%, unless you qualify for FHA or VA loans. Save 3-4% for closing costs.

Affordable Payments

Debt Load

The more you put down, the lower your payments

PMI is generally required by lenders as a means of protection in the event you default on the loan. But just because you qualify for a mortgage, doesn’t mean you’ll qualify for PMI; these companies run their own credit check and assess credit worthiness independent of the lender.

1 point

=

Term Your total debt load mortgage payment with principal, interest, taxes & insurance plus loan payments should not be more than 45% of your gross monthly income. Payments are more affordable when you have lower debt loads

Private Mortgage Insurance

Extend your entertainment space to the great outdoors.

Terms range from 10 - 30 years, in 5 year increments. The longer the term, the lower the payment, however you typically pay more interest.

1% of your mortgage

Calculate your debt load: 1. Add your monthly debt payments (include credit cards, mortgage & child support) 2. Divide your gross annual wages by 12. That's your monthly income. 3. Take your monthly payments total and divide it by your monthly income. 4. Move the decimal point two digits to the right to make it a percentage.

1% rate reduction

Points are paid to the lender in exchange for a reduced rate and can lower your payments. A point is equal to 1% of your home loan amount and it’s like paying some interest up front, in exchange for a lower rate over the life of your loan, but beware...1 point does not = 1% discount of your rate! It may take 3 points or more for a 1% rate discount!

To finalize the actual amount you can pay at a reputable lender, get pre-approved. You can discuss the many options available to you with the lender. Most lenders will give you a price range for the house, or a pre-approved payment range. Expect this process to take a couple of days. Once you have the pre-approval letter, it is good for 60 days.
