Alabama Custom Home Perfectly Combines Traditional and Farmhouse Features

We recently had the opportunity to create an Alabama custom home for the Harper family. This family dreamt of having an elegant, modern farmhouse-style home, so they called us at J. Wright Building Company to tackle the job. With a passion for building fine artisan homes, we were up for the challenge of creating a beautiful and unique place the Harpers could call home forever.

Situated on the river near a beautiful wooded area, we were excited to start building on such a beautiful location. We made sure to build the home in just the right place so that the back porch and master bedroom had excellent river views. The incredible scenery is the perfect backdrop for this house. With a mixture of classic red brick, stained wooden beams and neat white wood siding, the exterior perfectly combines traditional and farmhouse for a one-of-a-kind home. (more…)
