My wife and I spent three years looking at new homes throughout Johnson County, and though both of us believe we are pretty flexible, we never found a new home that we both liked. Then we walked through the Starr Homes entry into the Boulevard of Dreams tour in 2011 and fell in love. We both love the flowing livability of the architecture. It is well thought out for the daily lives of the homeowners. The symmetrical esthetic that carries from room to room is very easy on the eyes, and the rich, durable materials bring a cozy, warm environment.
Kit and Gerry Starr both met with us to highlight the green construction methodologies. We happened to be in the model during a blustery day. It was so quiet that after an hour or so, we all commented on how the wind must have died down. Then we looked out the window and saw the neighbors lawn furniture blowing across the lawn.
We loved the model, but wanted to make some notable changes to better fit us. We knew that we had found our builder, and they could make our dream home. From that point on, Starr Homes helped us pick out the perfect lot, design, redesign and redesign again our home. Thanks again to Kit, Gerry and Bob Osterlund. They gave us outstanding advice and insight, which really opened up our minds while having a good idea of the budget impact of those changes. Some of our favorite improvements include the stage in our daughters room, an additional garage bay, the large gardening room, the lady cave complete with barn door, and the subterranean home theater.
Now that we have been in our dream home for a year, our whole family loves it. The daily livability is even better than we expected. The building experience was outstanding. We had an outstanding project leader in Tracy Hall who kept us and the crews on track and made the entire experience enjoyable. If you have ever built a new home before, you know how hard that can be. And as an added benefit, that leading, green energy building methodology has given us our lowest energy bills.
