Resources / Other Articles / Award-Winning Home Design Showcasing the Outdoors

This award-winning design by Visbeen Associates is ideal for those who love nature, showcasing multiple outdoor living areas. A spacious foyer leads into an open living room with a deck beyond. The kitchen offers a large multipurpose island. The second floor features two cozy bedrooms, a bunk room with built-in sleeping area, and a convenient home office. In the optional lower level, a family room, billiards area, and pub with a wine cellar create relaxing evenings. This design earned accolades at both the 2009 Best of American Living Awards (as a finalist for Best One-of-a-Kind Custom Home) and the Detroit Home Design Awards.
