COUNTRY MEETS CITY IN THE LINDSAY BY QUALITY HOMES
Discover a home with modern amenities, packaged in rural charm. Country meets city in Quality Homes’ newest design, The Lindsay, the featured Dream Home at the 2013 National Home Show.
In response to the growing demand to address family dynamics, this 1,800-square-foot, 3-bedroom, 2 ½ bathroom, modern open-concept design creates the perfect space for fun, family and relaxation, all centered on how families relate in the home.
The kitchen is the focus point of this open-concept design. The kitchen breakfast bar, large dining room and spacious living room make this home perfect for entertaining friends and family, and creates an inviting space for busy families to congregate, or break off individually while still enjoying the space together.
Coffered ceiling details in the living room create a stunning entrance statement, a striking frameless glass shower in the master en-suite offers a luxurious yet practical touch of elegance, and a barn door on rollers, which conceals the main-floor laundry centre offers a functional, unique and whimsical touch to the home’s modern interior. In addition, a contemporary fireplace adds a stylish touch to the space’s exterior country charm and timeless elegance.
The building also addresses the demand for plenty of natural light through over-sized windows and patio doors and a maintenance-free exterior, make this model one of Quality Homes’ most popular ever.
Heading outside, the home continues to embrace the country charm theme and modern conveniences with elements that lends itself to either an urban, rural or even cottage environment. Tapered square columns and two patios make the home a charming place to spend time outdoors – all year round. Trex composite decking and vinyl clad porch posts mean no painting or staining, just wash and go.
Designed in Spring 2012, The Lindsay is a prime example of the company’s constant efforts to be a leader in the field of modular design, and in computerization and automation. Heavily invested in precision framing and cutting equipment, Quality Homes has managed to further enhance their precision building practices, while minimizing waste and improving efficiency all at the same time.
With lumber wastage down over 18 per cent, The Lindsay is a superior example of how precision framing techniques, drywall recycling programs and a factory-controlled environment can result in an estimated waste cut of over 40 per cent on each and every home built.
Assembled in only seven working days at the Show, this home is a testament to the company’s homebuilding experience and illustrates that a highly controlled indoor construction process not only eliminates the challenges of building in the harsh Ontario climate, but also adds quality, logistical and financial controls, that allow projects to be completed on-budget and on-time.
Post National Home Show, the home will become a permanent feature model at Quality's Kenilworth model home centre where approximately 5,000 visitors a year tour our models.
This year's Dream Home is the result of a co-operative design contest held internally at Quality Homes. All furnishings for the Dream Home displayed at the 2013 National Home Show have been provided by casalife
