When Houston residents Paul and Pam decided to build a house in Raleigh, North Carolina at the beginning of 2020, they had no idea that the process would become almost completely virtual. Fortunately, thanks to the hard work of their realtor, Jamie McGuire, and a partnership with Rufty Homes, what could have been a stressful time was a smooth experience for everyone.
Pam says, “We wanted to be closer to our friends and family members who are scattered around the Northeast, so we decided to leave Houston. Eventually, we decided on Raleigh, which is located right in between both of our sons.”
We listened intently as this delightful family shared their vision for an Old World dream home with a European flair. One that was distinctly elegant, yet still casual enough for gatherings. It was very important to build with natural materials that fit in character with the surroundings.
Attention to detail in each room was of utmost importance as the homeowners used their keen artistic sensibilities to stay closely involved in the selection of materials and colors. The resulting home feels as though it could’ve been built a century ago.
