Custom Home Builder Testimonial Video: Meet the Pinders

Posted on November 9, 2017 by Kevin Estes

When the Pinders bought land in Sequim more than a decade ago they dreamed of building a home for retirement there one day. They improved the lot, which includes a lavender farm, with a separate shop years ago. When the time came to leave their home in Everett, WA and retire in Sequim they came to us with a floorplan in hand.


There was just one problem.


The floorplan they loved was a perfect fit for their lifestyle but not a great fit for their budget. Our challenge was to recreate everything they loved about the original plan – vaulted ceilings, plenty of light, open concept design – in a home that was right-sized for their needs and budget.


From the start, we focused on a collaborative design process with the Pinders to recreate the floorplan they loved at a price and size that worked for them. Working with our design team, the Pinders were able to veto design ideas that didn’t work in favor of the final designs that felt like a perfect fit. The open communication with our design team created a positive experience that ensured the Pinder home was exactly what they envisioned.


The Pinders were able to add custom design elements to give their home a unique, one-of-a-kind look and feel. Some of their favorite design features are a stone shower surround that gives the master bathroom a “grotto” feel, a custom fireplace surround, and rounded windows that maximize natural light. The open kitchen includes a breakfast bar, skylights, and a separate prep sink.
