What is Design/Build: Working with a Custom Home Builder

Next month, a panel discussion led by Furniture, Lighting & Decor Editor-in-Chief Diane Falvey brings together four experts to talk about leveraging expertise among architects, builders, and designers when building custom homes.

During the panel, “Common Ground: Finding Synergy Among Architects, Builders and Designers,” Phil Travars and Andrew Travars of Travars Built Homes will be talking about the ins and outs of working with a design/build custom home builder in North Carolina.

“Having a clear understanding of the thought process around building a custom home can help everything go smoothly, from design through construction,” said Phil Travars, Owner and Builder at Travars Built Homes. “It’s a great opportunity to talk directly with experts from across the industry.”

About 75,000 people from across the country and internationally are expected to attend the bi-annual Furniture Mart event represented by more than 100 countries, for architects, designers, furnishings buyers and others looking for the latest information and products for homes.

The Travars brothers were asked to participate in the event to share their thought leadership about home building and designing together with CIRCLE Design Studio, LLC Principal Architect John Dorlini and Principal/Owner Theresa A.C. Dorlini.

Topics about the custom home build process are expected to include:

  • How designers and builders work together compose a custom home.
  • How creativity can create excitement through different points of view.
  • What to look out for when choosing a custom home on a budget.
  • What to think about as you integrate designs for furniture, lighting, fixtures and finishes into your new home.

“This is a great opportunity to bounce around ideas for your new home, if you’re considering a custom build,” said Andrew Travars, Builder and Designer at Travars Built Homes. “We put a lot into making each home unique – this panel will help explain what it takes to create through design/build.”

3 Ways to Get a Better Bathroom for Your Guests

3 things to think about when you design your guest suite bathroom in your custom home.

There are 3 different approaches to take to having a bathroom with privacy for your guest bedroom.

  • Approach #1 The bathroom is attached to the guest bedroom, and hallway. This being the least private or non private option.
  • Approach #2 The bathroom is between two bedrooms, also know as a “Jack and Jill” – this being a semi-private option.
  • Approach #3 The bathroom is only accessible through the bedroom – this allows for complete privacy.

Example Of Approach #1 – Bath Shared with Common Areas

One of the most common layouts for a guest suite maximizes usability while minimizing cost, by including a full bath that has access from both the guest bedroom, and from the main areas.

There is a second door from the guest bedroom directly into the bath, so guests have full privacy, but homeowners are spared the expense of an additional private bath.

Example Of Approach #2  – Jack and Jill Bath

This floor plan illustrates a “jack and jill” bathroom, where two bedrooms share a bathroom. With this layout, a guest would share a bathroom with someone in another bedroom, but would have the ability to close off that bathroom for themselves when it is they use it.

This floor plan, the Blackstone also has a powder room on the main floor, so the designation of this layout would be that the jack and jill bathroom would typically be limited to use by people in those two bedrooms, with semi-private usage.

Example Of Approach #3 – Full, Private Bath

In this layout there is a full bath off of the mudroom and beside the guest bedroom. With a small expansion to the exterior wall of the bathroom we can change the functionality of the space.

Take a look at the redline modifications. By expanding the bathroom slightly, it can be accessed en-suite, providing total privacy for the guest suite.

The redline modification at the foyer illustrates how a powder room can be added, to help ensure that privacy with the existence of another bathroom on the main floor.

These three guest bath layouts are some of the most common, but of course there are dozens of variations.
