Best of the Behind the Scenes Series 2018

Posted on November 28, 2018 by Kevin Estes

It’s almost the end of the year and that means that it’s time for all of the year-end highlight reels. Here at Estes Builders we love a good highlight reel as much as anyone so we’re creating our very own. We’re sharing the most popular installments of our Behind the Scenes blog series.

Our Behind the Scenes blog series goes, well, behind the scenes to tell you the stories of the homes we build and the customers who live there.

So get the drumroll ready because here are the three most popular Behind the Scenes stories of 2018.

#1: Growing Family in Silverdale, WA

We’re not at all surprised that this home is Silverdale took top prize… it’s positively swoon-worthy. The Asignacions were already living in Silverdale but were quickly outgrowing their current home. They came to us with a vision for a home that would accommodate their growing family.

#2: On the River in Sequim

If you’ve ever dreamed about falling asleep to the sound of the rushing river outside your bedroom window then you’ll understand why this story was such a favorite this year. Sandy had been living on her riverfront lot in a manufactured home and came to us when she was ready to upgrade to a custom home. Her vision was a 2 bedroom, 2 bath home with a large wrap around porch so she could feel connected to the land.

#3: “Aim for the Mountains”

When the Taylors came to us with a vision for their custom home in Port Angeles they had one simple request: “Aim for the mountains.” They owned land with stunning mountain views that they wanted to maximize. For their design process they took many of the design elements of their current home (which they loved) and made significant improvements to create a home that was a better fit for their new, retired lifestyle.
