New Home for sale in Williamsburg! 2888 & 2884 Sandy Bay Rd Spec Houses

“New home for sale in Williamsburg”… I’m excited to have found 2 wonderful lots in town that I currently have under contract.  As soon as I obtain the building permit I will be breaking ground.  The house plan I have chosen is my Hiden plan (see plans tab for the floor plans).  The master bedroom is on the first floor with a large shower in the master bathroom,  two bedrooms upstairs with a finished bonus room, it makes for a well sought after home, offering approx 2,100 square feet.  It fits the bill for the family with kids or the downsizer’s/empty nester’s.  It has a large open great room & dining room.  The kitchen is open and inviting and offers a large raised island bar. So if you’d like more info, give me a call at 757-880-9321.  

Modular Homes Williamsburg, VA ??? I’m looking into the possibilities…

No, I am not talking about mobile homes or manufactured homes, as some folks call them.  Here’s how this goes… I was recently talking to another builder buddy that has ordered a modular home.  I will be checking out the company he is using to construct and set this project for him.  This may be a great option for Kimberly Builders and our customers to have high quality construction (that doesn’t get rained on during construction), a quicker finish date delivery, possibly more for the buck and still have custom designed plans created by us.  I will know more once I travel to the plant at the end of the month and investigate further.  Stay tuned to hear more on the modular home adventure…

Master Bath reno in Ford’s Colony for Carl and Judy

I had a blast helping Carl and Judy update and reconfigure their master bathroom.  See the “Before pics” at the bottom of the post. The double vanity and tower existing was great, no need to do anything to this side of the bathroom.  Their issue was a small fiberglass steam shower that wasn’t comfortable for Carl. Also the loss of space with the steam motor in the linen closet adjacent to the shower was a huge waste of space.  The jetted tub looked a bit dated and the whole right side of the bathroom needed to go! So here are some before pics to give you the idea of what they had and some afters to show what can be done to capture wasted space and turn it into a luxurious have of rest and spa-like atmosphere. Professional pics will follow of the full spa walk in shower with body sprays, rain-head shower-head , multi-functional shower-head, bench with handheld shower wand. The existing floor remains and a stone and glass transition was added to marry the new floor to the existing.  Notice the new porcelain tile is a bit darker to help offset the stylish free standing “Lyndsey” acrylic soaker. We also placed a stone mosaic as a focal point centered in the shower at the glass panel.

The walls are up and roof trusses are being set

It’s so exciting to see the construction taking shape and starting to look like a house.  The walls are built and the roof trusses were delivered on Tuesday morning.  It took a bit longer than desired for the crane to get to the job to help with setting the trusses.  I understand that several crane companies have some of their rigs in North Carolina to help with clean up from the storm damage, so I am grateful to have gotten such a quick response on the provided crane!
