Ed and Heather McGarrigle are very pleased with how closely Classic collaborated with them - and their builder. Today they have the post and beam home their hearts were set on, with the Craftsman touches their builder suggested.

Ed and Heather McGarrigle had their hearts set on a cottage-style home with a post and beam structure at its core. Their builder, however, thought a Craftsman-style home would better serve their needs. That's where the Classic Post & Beam design team came in - skillfully modifying our Canterbury Place floorplan to create a home that appealed to everyone and reflected the McGarrigle's lifestyle and priorities.

Central to the home's first-floor design is its two-sided mortarless fireplace constructed from native fieldstone. The kitchen is Ed's domain, outfitted with granite counters and professional-grade appliances that allow him to cook like a gourmand every day. Transom windows, mahogany, cedar and pine railings along with a beautiful hand-crafted newel post add lovely Craftsman-style detail to the home.

A feeling of spaciousness is carried through to the second floor where every room, including the bathroom, sports an 18-foot high cathedral ceiling. At the top of the stairway, natural light from two skylights filters into the lofty sitting room, making it a perfect spot to curl up with a book or relax with friends.
