The children each have their own bedroom and share a playspace as well. Morgan’s favorite feature is the bifold door connecting the living area to the porch. “No matter where the kids are, I feel connected to them,” she says. “We can entertain, see the kids … it really opens things up. With the fireplace outside, we can watch football and enjoy the space year-round.” “We are really happy with the lot, the layout and location, all have been fantastic for our family,” Bruce says. “We’re only a mile to the Durham Bulls Athletic Park, and our neighborhood and the people around us are great.” “We really feel like we know everyone, especially through walking our dogs,” Morgan adds. The dogs have their own space inside, too, with beds built into a custom room under the staircase; it even includes access to the outdoors. “This house feels bigger than others we’ve lived in; not so much because of the size, but because of how functional it is,” Bruce says. “We always dreamed of building our perfect house, and now we have it.”
