A Dream Custom Home in Forest Hills Country Club

We just got the photographs in on a recently-completed DH custom home in Forest Hills Country Club in Chesterfield and were so in love with this home that we wanted to give you a closer look at this project.

To Build or to Renovate? That is the Question.

We meet many of our clients when they are in the initial phase of purchasing an older house. They come to us with the question "do we build a new home, or renovate what we have?"  To be honest, this isn’t always an easy question to answer.  As we work with them through the process, they all come to different conclusions for their own reasons.

8 Critical Soil Factors Before Building Your Home

But even before the foundation is poured, it is important to understand the soil and site factors that will help determine any limitations that need to be mitigated on a planned homesite.

Town and Country Multi-Generational Home

DH Custom Homes is a multi-generational family business. We understand the benefits (and weaknesses) of working closely with one another. Like us, more Americans are becoming aware of the benefits of a multi-generational living and are taking that to the level of a custom home.

Hidden Custom Bar in Chesterfield

A while back we wrote about a two-story remodel project we were working on in Chesterfield where we opened up the floor plan to create a more airy and open feel. Since that blog post, we have been busy remodeling and updating the home, and in the process, creating a very special feature- a custom bar in the dining room with some hidden features.

Size Doesn’t Matter – Part One

 Bigger is not always better. At least that is what you will see with a new custom project we kicked off recently. We were excited to get started on a home theater project for a Chesterfield family. One because home theaters are fun projects for us. And, two, because this one came with a bit of a challenge. We had to design the theater into the space where homeowners desired – a small unfinished area off of their finished lower level. 

Fusing Vintage with Modern- Part 2

 Home additions can be tricky. At DH Custom Homes, we have been working on several home additions over the last year. And we have been grateful to work with home owners who understand the importance of blending the original structure with their new addition both inside and out. 

Fusing Vintage with Modern, Part 1

While older homes are stacked with charm and uniqueness, they were built for a different time. If you live in an older home and are considering adding modern renovations or home addition, you’ll want to follow one of our newest projects. We are working on an addition and remodel in Clayton, Mo., that will balance modernization and architectural integrity.

Color Your Home

Just like you create first impressions when you walk in a room, your home will create a first impression when someone passes by or a guest pulls in your driveway. We blogged about Home Resolutions in the New Year recently, discussing the importance of putting your best face forward. Curb appeal can’t be overlooked! Whether you’re designing a new home or considering a “face lift” for your current home, it’s very important to select a color palette for the exterior that coordinates nicely with the architectural style and interior of your home, the surrounding homes and your own personal style. Looking for inspiration? Or maybe you’ve fallen in love with a DH photo and are wondering how the color palette would look on YOUR home? You’ve come to the right place!

 

Chesterfield Two-Story Remodel - Opening Up the Floor Plan

We’ve been working on a pretty major remodel in Chesterfield on a two-story home. The entire first floor is being transformed. The young family opted for some really great updates and extra cool personal touches, including an area in the dining room we are looking forward to sharing when it is complete!
