Sycamore – New Construction
Sycamore - New Construction
This custom home in Decatur was built in accordance with National Green Building Standards, scoring Silver with a 2.9 ACH score (the state maximum is 7, and most builders struggle to get under a 5). Sustainable features include high-efficiency insulation and air sealing with a combination of foam and batt. The modern minimalist trim package required complicated craftsmanship—there is no door or window casing, just extended jambs and an inset baseboard.
With no room in the trim package to correct for the problems caused by standard studs, we used Weyerhaeuser Framer`s Series studs (a laser-grade stud with exceptional straightness and density) to make sure the walls were completely straight and flat so that the minimalist trim package would be geometrically perfect.
This home features chipped ice quartz countertops, 8’ doors on the first floor, and a custom lighting package. The Somerset Hickory prefinished wood floors add visual interest to every room, complementing the minimalist style and preventing dullness. Inspired by a combination of international modern design elements and traditional Japanese Shoji styling, the exterior is an inspired work of art unique in the Atlanta housing market.
