I decided to stage in as "green" a way as possible to increase the marketing ability for these homes. The scope of work for this staging included selecting finishes, light fixtures, trim and doors, flooring, plumbing fixtures and designing the bathroom and kitchen spaces.
First thing I did was create a family that would live in each of the models. That made the selections much easier to choose as I had some idea of how the family would live in the home. The Shellbrook model was designed for an active family with a dog running through the home on a daily basis. The finishes selected would withstand the rigors of family life and be easy to maintain.
Cork floor in the main floor laundry is easy care and is a renewable, environmentally friendly surface. The washer is a front loader saving water on each load.
Carpeting had low VOC emission for those with breathing problems (over 25% of children now have a breathing problem).
The kitchen table was made from reclaimed elm and steel. A pot filler was installed over the stove to allow the cook to make soup and pasta dishes with ease.
The coffee tables and hall table were made from reclaimed steel and reclaimed railway ties from India (they contain no creosote).
The night table in the boys room was made from a part of a ship (and very heavy).
Custom drapery and furniture completed the look.
This model is light, bright and airy encouraging the gathering of family in the kitchen and rec room, the two rooms where you can invite friends and family over to enjoy time together.
