One cket will admit visitors to all six homes over a three day period. Homes will be open from noon-5 p.m. Friday – Sunday, September 28-30. Presented by the Master Custom Builders Council of TN, the tour includes homes built for customers at a substan,al savings and are fully furnished. A single ,cket allows visitors to sam- ple a variety of home styles, loca,ons, builders, architects, designers, and more according to Bob Shaw, of McPherson- Shaw, Inc., member of the Master Custom Builders Council. "If you are considering building or even pain,ng a room, you'll want to check out the interes,ng variety of styles from French Coun- try to tradi,onal," Shaw says. "You'll see ex- posed beams and great examples of popular outdoor living spaces." In the French country home built by David Pa-on Construc,on LLC, visitors will find a pleasing combina,on of brick and stonework. An imposing foyer and living area greet guests. A round space shelters the dining room which has views to the backyard which slopes gently to the lakeshore. The kitchen features grey painted cabinetry in two tones, professional appliances, quartz c ountertops, and textural mosaic backsplashes. A screened porch is accessible from several rooms and wide walkways around the home's u pper level feature decora,ve iron railings and a view of the pool. Panoramic views are fea- tured from numerous rooms. An upholstered wall in the master bedroom is reflec,ve of the contemporary taste found throughout the home Numerous graceful arches adorn openings off the entry areas and graceful wrought iron railings are part of the circular stairway that leads to the lower level. Downstairs, a second kitchen and entertainment areas sit on pol- ished concrete floors. A home theater room and game table are also included. Aptly named "The Nest" by the homeown- ers, the custom modern farmhouse built by R. Thomas Construc,on is located high atop a beau,ful ridge. It is approximately 7,200 square feet and offers 4 bedrooms (with the op,on of a 5th) and 5 full and 2 half baths. Twelve-foot ceilings on the main floor and 10-. ceilings on the 2nd floor create large open living and entertaining spaces while whitewashed oak beam ceilings and character grade wide white oak flooring and shiplap walls provide warmth and character. "His" and "Hers" bathrooms and a morning bar create a quiet and relaxing master bed- room suite. The upstairs—"The Barn" as the homeowners call it—was planned and built for fun with grandchildren and guests. It's a huge space over the garage that has been trans- formed into a rus,c, fun place for kids and adults to play games and socialize. Walls are finished with random thickness wood and the ceiling is covered in corrugated ,n. Shaw's two homes range from a 6,700 square foot home in Fairview Planta,on to a 4,900 square foot lodge-style home built to take advantage of its eight-acre Features in the Shaw homes include a televi- sion that automa,cally folds down from a rear terrace ceiling, automa,c screens on an out- door terrace, and an ar,st-painted dome in a master bedroom.
