This year, we here at REEF have had several requests for homes designed with two master bedrooms. This is a growing trend for Cape Cod Homes as one generation moves towards retirement, and looks to design a home that can accommodate either an aging parent or visiting children and their families. This is not a new concept, but the design can become challenging. The key is to create spaces that are both private, yet sill provide good access to all of the central features of the home, such as the kitchen, living rooms etc. Here are some plans from Housingzone.com that show different, dual master designs in both 2 story and ranch-style homes. This is a great idea for your Cape Cod retirement home, and a sound investment for a new but smart concept in family living. Click to read the article: Dual Master Designs

Let's face it: you've got to do laundry. So you might as well have some fun with it! No longer is the laundry area hidden down in the basement. Most of our customers want a 1st floor laundry, perhaps off the Kitchen, or even in the Master Suite of their Cape Cod home. Wherever the location, the Laundry Room is bound to be "in the mix" much more so than in years past. Here's some great ideas to make your laundry room an enjoyable place to be.
Closet space and storage solutions don't have to be large or expensive, they just have to be part of the design process from the beginning. Living spaces, kitchens, baths and master bedrooms always are at the forefront of home design, but if you consider the storage requirements for all of these spaces, your might end up with a better overall design. There are hundreds of options for closet storage, from basic to custom, but there are several options available which are modular, easy to install, and make a huge difference in your New Home or Renovation.
