Dual Laundry Rooms The functionality of your home is one of the most important things to think about when building. And what’s more functional and convenient than having two laundry rooms? “Both physically and visually, I believe a home should support the functions of our daily lives, but it should do it beautifully with ease and go unnoticed,” Troy says. Adding a second laundry room seems to be what many people find helpful in their daily lives. Homeowners are connecting one to the master closet for convenience and adding a separate one on another floor.

A Vacation at Home “People are stressed, overbooked and looking for an escape, and they want to find it at home,” Troy says. One way to make your home luxurious and relaxing is to add a freestanding soaking tub, complex shower system with multiple functions, and a sauna. The thought of such a space immediately melts the stress away. Another way to create your own personal escape is by creating a covered outside gathering space to share with friends and family. Whether it’s a covered patio, screened-in porch or large

816.217.7663 | faustconstruction.com

deck for entertaining, make it a peaceful place to unwind.

Spacious Pantries Pantries (as well as closets) are now becoming the size of many small rooms. People are not only choosing to do this for functionality and storage purposes but also to provide room to house new appliances that are being integrated in a new home. “Many people are moving the second refrigerator into the muchlarger pantry instead of in the garage,” Troy says. “Also, I’ve been getting a lot more requests for commercial ice machines in homes. The under-cabinet units are pretty expensive, so I’m having clients purchase small commercial-grade ones.”

Popular Floor Plans Many homeowners are starting to choose a reverse-story plan for their future home because of the appeal of main-level living. According to Jeff, about 60 percent of his clients prefer that type of plan over a traditional two-story. But Troy says a two-story house has benefits. “It seems that from an elevation perspective, we are able to do more with a symmetrical balance of roofline instead of a plan that is heavier on one side,” he explains. Whatever your floor plan preference, design and build a home that personally caters to your lifestyle.

Austin Roeser, local builder and owner of Roeser Homes, built his

BUILDER’S OWN

first home in 2005 and has built many since, including his own in Cedar Creek that he finished about a year ago. Along with his wife, Shelly, and two children, Chloe, 10, and Carter, 6, the four-bedroom, four-and-a-half bathroom home was custom-made just for them. “The hardest part of building our own house was all the detail work that went into it and the lot that we built the home on because the backyard is built on a hill,” Austin says.

The challenges, however, were well worth the struggle when, at the end of the day, they can look around at the light and airy spaces that contain clean and crisp accents. “It took us about eight months to build, which is pretty good considering it takes about that long to build most homes now,” he says. When stepping foot into the home, some of the first noticeable details are the rock accents throughout and the wood beams in the front entry. A mixture of light colors is set off by rich, dark wood accents along the entryway and hearth room, including the hardwood floors. With a stunning Calcutta gold marble slab on the island, the kitchen is the perfect representation of the style that the Roesers were going for. Other features include a unique coffered ceiling, dual ovens, spacious pantry and soft-close drawers to make it a fully functional space. “The kitchen is definitely my favorite room of the house not just because I really love to eat but also because it’s a great place for all of us to just hang out and unwind,” Austin says. Another room that stands out is the outdoor entertainment space. With comfortable seating, a fireplace and a flat-screen television, Austin made sure that his family had the perfect place to kick back and enjoy the weather. “When we were getting ready to build the house, I knew that we would have to have a nice kitchen, my own office and a great outdoor area,” he says. “Those were definitely our must-haves.”

The Roesers won’t stay in the cozy 3,413-square-foot home forever, though. Shelly and Austin already agree that they will eventually build another home. “We will probably stay here for at least five to 10 more years,” he says. “I think our next house might be a little smaller, but it will definitely be even cooler than this one.” In the meantime, Austin will be busy building homes for others in the Kansas City area. He now builds about 50 semi-custom homes a year. “Being in the middle of the country is great because we don’t have the highs and lows in the industry that other cities do because they’re diffused by the time they reach us,” he says. “Business has definitely picked up in the last three to four years, and hopefully that continues.”

TOP TIPS

Photos by Matt Kocourek

Keeping up with routine maintenance items, such as caulking around windows and doors, clearing gutters of any accumulated debris and checking your roof for loose shingles, will help improve the longevity of your home. When it comes to upkeep, it pays to be proactive.

“ “

Improve indoor air quality through proper dehumidification and ventilation with fresh air.

Mark Sumada, owner,

Jim Lambie, owner, Lambie Custom Homes

Suma Design & Construction

There are several items to consider that we refer to as “behind the walls,” such as structure, i.e. how the is house built and what framing systems are used; HVAC system; electrical wiring; and plumbing lines. With quality items in place, you’ll have a well-crafted home for many years.

Chad Buck, owner, C&M Builders

In modern-style remodeling and new construction, focus on minor details, as they make the overall design stand out from others. Clean lines of modern design require quality materials and a high level of expertise, while “out of the box” ideas still allow for practical and functional design.

Brian Faust, owner, Faust Construction

Just because a home is new doesn’t make it energy-efficient. Contracting with a builder who is eco-conscious is important. Always have your new home tested by an independent third-party energy rater to determine its true energy efficiency.

remodeling TRENDS Story by Brooke McGrath

From kitchens and bathrooms to lower levels and additions, people are remodeling interior spaces to fit their lifestyle. Thanks to sites like Houzz and Pinterest, homeowners can stockpile ideas for their upcoming home remodel, while smart phones and advanced technology have made the communication process (almost) a breeze.

Kitchen Craze Though some homeowners are requesting a little more definition of space when it comes to a kitchen remodel, an open concept — with personal updates — continues to top wish lists. “It used to be that everyone followed the same trend or two,” says Elizabeth Rishel, CKD, owner/designer of Orion Design. “Now, people are getting more and more comfortable with their own ideas and embracing them.” Granite countertops have become standard in the industry, but, according to Elizabeth, quartz is becoming extremely popular because of its low maintenance. And, though homeowners tend to be more money-conscious these days, they don’t skimp on luxury appliances like wine refrigerators. “Not surprisingly, kitchens, baths and additions rank highest not only as a regular Photo by Bob Greenspan, design by Orion Design

three project types that NARI members are completing for customers,” says Nikki Golden, marketing and communications manager of the National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI). “Bathrooms and kitchens also rank high in terms of costs recouped on the National Association of Realtor’s Cost vs. Value survey.”

Suite Master Baths As for master suites/bathroom remodels, “You know the drill: more storage, better function,” Elizabeth says. “One interesting trend is that we continue to take out tubs in master bathrooms and instead utilize a big walk-in shower.” Continuing in popularity is Universal Design, also known as accessible design or aging in place. This concept transforms a home into a safe sanctuary for all, especially those with physical disabilities. Specific requests include barrierfree shower bases, touchless faucets, motion-sensor lighting and comfort-height toilets, according to Mike Dodd, president of Wineteer Construction and LifeWise Renovations. And, though cost continues to be top of mind, homeowners can’t give up the luxury of heated floors.

Lower-Level Digs Whether you incorporate an English pub, man cave, or guest suite/caregiver’s quarters, finishing a lower level increases your home value as well as living space for your family. (Additions, which are trending on the national market, also add livable square footage and value to a home.) A cost-effective route some homeowners are taking includes luxury vinyl tile. “It is extremely durable and has some beautiful looks,” Elizabeth says. LED lighting is an energyefficient addition, and wine fridges also are being incorporated in full kitchens, wet bars or kitchenettes in a lower level. B LUEPRINT 2014 |

remodeling INSPIRATION Story by Brooke McGrath Photos by James Maidhof

It’s a whole new glorious world for Alan and Tiffany Killoren after they finished their lower-level walkout in Parkville, creating a multifunctional space

CREATIVE COMFORT

that entertains friends and family and caters to Max, 7, and Finn, 5. By far the family’s favorite space, it’s a race to see who can “call dibs” on it each morning. “I needed the space to be smart and functional,” Tiffany says. “For a busy family, that means storage, smart use of space and a plan that will grow with two little boys. I wanted it to represent who we are as a family.” In keeping with their wishes, builder/remodeler Jay Jackson designed a floor plan to suite all needs. “We worked with what was there to help them achieve their goals and maximize their space,” Jay says.

Tiffany, a lawyer by day, designed a two-person desk unit with built-in cabinetry (thanks to a little inspirational help from Houzz) that can easily transition into an adult space when the boys go off to college. The wet bar, complete with microwave, dishwasher and wine fridge, provides contrast to the neutral color palette with dark cabinetry but maintains consistency in a cabinet-front design that mimics the built-in desk unit. A subtle ‘s’ shape denotes where the engineered hardwood floors end and where the carpeted living room begins, one of Jay’s design details. “We wanted to get away from a straight line and give [the space] a little more pizzazz.” From conception to construction, the built-in shelving wall around the TV was Alan’s project. Taking the multifunctional concept a step further, one bookcase conceals a hidden entry to the storage room. Alan, an Android developer, continued his creative talent outside, designing and constructing the new flagstone patio and fire pit. While the layout achieved everything on the family’s wish list — in a cozy 952 square feet — it’s the eclectic furnishings and decor that personalize the vintage chic space. Energizing the white color palette are colorful chairs, rugs, bean bags, pillows, furniture and artwork — both new and repurposed. A vintage 1960s buffet pairs seamlessly with a comfy Crate & Barrel couch and a “pineapple” desk lamp that Tiffany bought for $3 at a church garage sale and repurposed. Vibrant color pops off shelves and walls from the kids’ artwork and craft projects that Tiffany says have gone awry, while Alan’s guitar collection subtly lines the back wall. Giving a nod to mythology, she framed each family member’s astrological sign and hung them neatly on the wall outside of the powder bath located at the bottom of the stairs. The lower-level finish — completed ahead of schedule — didn’t just simply increase their living space, it “improved our quality of life,” Tiffany says. The family spends most of its time here, with ample space for lounging, studying, partying and, most importantly, more room to house — ahem, hide — the kids’ toys.

TOP TIPS

Photos by Matt Kocourek

While planning your project, dedicate as much time to improving the exterior envelope as the interior finishes. Superior windows and insulation can increase your home’s performance and improve the quality of life within the home.

David Schleicher, Certified Passive House Consultant, owner, Prairie Design Build

When remodeling your home, look for ways to make the space usable by all people, regardless of their age or abilities. A ramp to the front door is helpful whether you’re in a wheelchair, pushing a stroller or on foot!

When selecting a remodeler, ask to visit a current jobsite. You’ll want to see a clean and organized project. Your remodeler should be more than happy to send you referrals from recent projects. Look at their portfolio to find detail and quality workmanship.

Mary Thompson, UDCP (Universal Design Certified Professional),

owner, Architectural Craftsmen

Nick Guehne, co-owner, Guehne-Made

Two heads are better than one, from design conception to multiple showerheads. Think flexibility, ease of function, easier cleaning, and barrier-free shower pans incorporating universal design that adds a huge return on the additional investment and resale value of your home.

Jesse Ham, UDCP, GC, owner, ABC Renovations

We find that the happiest clients are those who work with the same company from design through construction. The devil is in the details, and working with one team assures you of seamless, clear communication.

Lauren Wendlandt of Framework Design adds that “compact living” is a buzz phrase in the architectural community. “People can definitely learn to live in much less than they’re used to,” she says. “I think there is a minimum that’s required for pure sanity, but no one in our office has found the need to live in or design overly large homes. We enjoy everything having a place and everything in its place.”

A Material World Low maintenance is the way to go, especially on the exterior of a home. Both Lauren and David recommend fiber cement board, such as James Hardie Board Siding, and AZEK trim. “Both can be painted, but they hold up for a long time in this climate,” David says. Stone, both authentic and cast, is showing up inside and outside of homes, while brick has faded from popularity. LED lighting and energy-efficient fixtures have maintained their footholds, Lauren says, while David notes the inclusion of highperformance windows and doors.

gradually forayed into modern residential architecture. So much so that Dan spun off Extraordinary Homes, a design/build company specializing in modern work that now has to turn away clients because he’s so busy. “It’s like when Steve Jobs built the iPhone,” Dan says. “Nobody was asking for it, but when people saw it, everyone wanted one.” Lauren says her clients seek out her firm to incorporate modern style into historical projects as well as to explore their “eclectic leanings.” The term “modern” evokes thoughts of cold spaces to many locals, but Dan says that’s not necessarily true. “To me, there is warm modern (lots of wood) and cold modern (all white), and Kansas City definitely prefers the warmer look,” he says.

be a focal point, but it wasn’t a beautiful one,” Chris says. The new design highlights a back-painted glass backsplash. “Where the light hits it, you get different colors,” Matt says. Upgrading the island’s base to walnut was a last-minute change that made visual sense because it matches the couple’s furniture, custom-made by Ryan Bennett of Deadleaf Designs. Chris loves the two-tone look. “It’s more distinctive than my initial idea of a white kitchen,” she says. But there’s another benefit. “I thought it was a luxurious wood choice, but it’s so practical.” Going with wood over white downplays the inevitable scuffs and dings from their kids, ages 3 and 6. “It will get chipped, but we won’t see it as much.” Initial plans for the house included installing a “light cannon” from the attic, but replacing a row of arched windows with larger ones and a single French door with a slider doubled the amount of glass as well as improved circulation. “The new windows, colors and furniture all contribute to this feeling of lightness,” Rick says. In the family room, a stone fireplace with flanking cabinets, like

TOP TIPS

Photos by Matt Kocourek

Imagining yourself living dayto-day in your future home is critical to a successful design. It’s those functions that make the home a joy to live in, not the photo op on prom night.

Align expectations throughout the process. From the very beginning, communicating with all concerned parties on what the goals and objectives are in terms of broad brushstrokes and specific issues is equally important. Conversations regarding budget and schedule also should be addressed before a line is drawn.

Scott Bickford, AIA, owner,

Rick McDermott, AIA, owner, RDM Architecture

Bickford + Company

Let your architect be the middle man, as he or she can ask tough questions about workmanship or if the design doesn’t seem to be right. Keeping your architect engaged during the construction phase is invaluable to ensuring that you get the final product envisioned.

Christopher Armer, AIA, owner, Compass DESIGN + BUILD

When updating your kitchen, don’t forget to think about functionality in addition to appearance. You can accomplish this by installing custom glide-out shelving for pantries and cabinets.

Alan Smith, owner, ShelfGenie of Greater Kansas City

When creating a building plan, make a wish list. Compile info about the site and existing plans, with room-by-room requirements and sizes. Compile ideas from magazines, online and the Parade of Homes. Research local architects and contractors, and line up financing. Lastly, be patient and have fun.

to be an ideal neutral. Lisa Schmitz of Lisa Schmitz Interior Design cites the versatility of gray tones, which can be soft, deep or saturated. “They can be mixed with pops of color, such as cobalt, citron, red and orange, to warm it up,” she says. Principals and Design Directors Jill Tran and Carmen Thomas of Tran + Thomas Design Studio welcome this “resurgence of color” and say the minimalist look is over –– and they couldn’t be happier. “The simple, plain looks are going away and we’re headed toward embellishment, like gold, brass and more ornate designs, in fabrics,” Jill says. The move away from geometric with attention to more floral, decorative design can be seen in bright accent walls and large-scale patterns in wallpaper.

amazing textures for indoors and outdoors,” Lisa adds. And proving that livability doesn’t mean you have to compromise on luxury, other fabrics normally found in the outdoors, such as wool felt, are finding their way onto throws and upholstered footstools.

“PURPOSELY CREATIVE”

Another is Himalayan sheep hide, “the kind with four-inch-long hair that you just want to dig your fingers into,” Lisa says.

Have a Seat To accommodate home layouts that now feature fewer but larger living spaces, Jill and Carmen say seating is increasingly becoming more functional for tasks such as sitting at the computer or lounging while watching television. Classic pieces for seating also are making a comeback. Go for a spin in a swivel chair or take a leisurely rock back in time with a rocker. Mary Carol says these traditional pieces are no longer for the older crowd, with the updated look (and comfort) attracting younger clients.

Mix It Up For those who are torn between modern and vintage design, mixing the best of both worlds is easier than one would think. “People want current yet traditional, timeless furniture that can have a modern twist. For example, a ceramic porcelain lamp with a unique design paired with a drum shade can create a fresh twist; or simply placing a modern lamp on a traditional end table,” Mary Carol suggests. Another way to tweak the traditional is to reupholster old furniture with a modern fabric pattern.

In the dining room, she expressed her love of texture by using grasscloth wallpaper. The unique textural quality of this natural wall covering was paired against a classic white wainscoting featuring a custom geometric pattern that Lindsay designed herself. The room is framed by elegant French doors, and tall dining chairs covered in red canvas add a punch of color. While Lindsay modestly describes herself as only “decently crafty,” her home features a number of pieces she’s transformed. She repainted her nightstands with a lively shade of turquoise and added a splash of yellow to the bulbously adorned lamps in her master bedroom. And her home features not one but two deer heads, including one in her office she tweaked on her own. She bought the buck head off eBay, mounted it on a crest, painted it white and completed the look with a lacquer finish. Other artwork in the home includes “a conglomeration of things” that she sourced and curated, including pieces from art.com, family heirlooms and even a Chinese antique screen that serves as artwork in her bedroom. From reviving retro furniture with just a coat of paint to proving there’s always a place for unique vegetable-inspired lamps, Lindsay’s home shows how fashioning color and contrast can oftentimes make the boldest statement.

TOP TIPS

Photos by Matt Kocourek

Create a design based on your lifestyle. Goods should be well-constructed with timeless design that can be passed down from one generation to the next. I’m a firm believer in history repeating itself, so get creative and repurpose furniture — with an updated twist.

Planning ahead is key to the success of your project and will help keep you on budget. Making product selections early can prevent delays later, but be prepared as you might encounter unexpected delays and inconveniences that come from living in a construction zone.

Susan Prestia, Allied ASID, owner, Interior Directions

Ninety percent of buyers start their home search online. Staging your house will create better photos, allowing for a positive first impression even before walking through the front door!

Whether patterned, textured, silky or knotty, area rugs are most often an important player in a room and can help you with your color scheme. I love what a difference a simple area rug can do to update your space.

One decision homeowners must make is choosing a woodburning or gas option. “A lot of people want to keep it simple and make it only wood-burning, but some clients like a lot of control and want to add a gas starter or go gas only,” Kelly says. “There are systems available where one can control [gas] remotely through an iPad or iPhone. They can decide when the fire comes on and off, change the height of the fire and more.” According to the survey, outdoor living spaces, defined as kitchens and entertainment spaces, were the second-most popular feature in residential outdoor elements. (The most popular feature, unsurprisingly, was a garden or landscape space.) An outdoor kitchen can be as simple as extending the grill area with a serving surface or adding a full kitchen with an oven, smoker, dual-burner stovetop or sink. “I really aim to create places of significance for families that they will be able to use and enjoy,” says Chris Ehrenberg, a residential

vegetables and herbs,” Chris says. Landscape designers help homeowners chose the right plants for their soil, train the plants to grow so they can be harvested, and make sure homeowners think about all the aspects of growing, including composting. “In the early years, they really need those nutrients as the plants get established,” Chris explains.

The Sound of Water “Even though the usable period of a pool is only three to four months in this part of the county, it’s still a high-demand feature in upscale homes,” Kelly says. Eighty-six percent of landscape architects who took the survey

predicted that decorative water elements, including waterfalls, ornamental pools and splash pools, will be in demand for home landscapes. “We’ve put pools in some interesting locations — one on the side of a hill,” Kelly notes. “There was quite a bit of infrastructure under the pool to support it, but the view you get from the top of the pool is really neat.” Choosing a location for a pool or water feature that maximizes the yard without overwhelming it is one of Kelly’s top priorities.

point, it was too much to manage with the algae buildup and feathered predators attacking the koi fish, so they reduced the size of the pond by 25 percent and switched from koi to goldfish. Even with the smaller footprint, the pond is still Diane’s favorite part of the yard. “I enjoy sitting on the patio and viewing the yard with the pond being the main focus,” she says. The next challenge was choosing the stone for the patio. “That was really tough. Diane is really picky. She’d sit there and study the different stones, get magazines and sometimes call manufacturers,” Doug remembers. “I would have just thrown something together. But she said, ‘No, it’s going to be forever, so let’s plan it.’” Diane knew she wanted to keep the stone natural and neutral, but she also wanted it to be durable. Many of the questions she

TOP TIPS

Photos by Matt Kocourek

Think about flow, materials, textures and lighting. Consult a design professional on topics such as visual balance; edging; the combination of certain materials and textures, including which trees and flowering plants work best in your landscape; and the use of direct and indirect lighting.

Remember to water your concrete. It’s naturally a green product, and you can improve the life of your concrete by taking care of it as you would any other organic material — by giving it the water it needs!

Christopher Feldkamp, owner,

Beth Dringenberg, lead designer,

Land Design Group

ACS Concrete & Construction

Think long-term; plan for the future of a landscape. Plants grow, things change over the years, and all too often I’ve seen how a nice layout taken over by an overcrowded landscape can make your space look like a jungle instead of a place to relax.

Will Manda, designer, Rosehill Gardens

Trimming or removing trees, especially large ones, can be dangerous work that should be done by trained professionals. It is crucial to work with a company that is knowledgeable about the needs of trees and are experienced and equipped to provide proper care.

Cheryl Cartwright, owner, Cartwright Tree Care

Put together a carefully thought-out master plan. Landscape designs should include a scaled drawing of the property with planned bed spaces and identified plant material as well as water features, patios, decks and other structures that might be in the plan now or down the road.
