The result is a harmonious blend of farmhouse and open interior with a structure that hugs the slope in a seamless transition. Lehde’s original framed sketches hang on a prominent wall in the home, a token of the family’s appreciation for their vision becoming a reality. The garage side of the home’s lower level consists of a mudroom where the family’s older yellow lab, Nemo, lies on the cool concrete floor to rest. A walk-in pantry provides ample shelving for food storage and Brad’s ever-growing cookbook collection. The kitchen/dining area leads out to an impressive great room with 20-foot high tray ceilings anchored by a shiplap sided fireplace fronting a staircase with metal railing and banisters. On one side of the central stairs is the master suite with attached bath and opposite that, a cozy children’s playroom.
