The 2016 Ideal Home

Southern Living Ideal HomeFor years, the Greater Birmingham Association of Home Builders (GBAHB) has chosen an Ideal Home to be featured during the Parade of Homes. This home is the Association’s way of showing members new design trends, products and services, while also demonstrating the benefits of hiring a licensed contractor and active member of the GBAHB. Ideal Homes are the perfect example of the inspiration and creativity of the GBAHB and J. Wright Building Company is proud to say that we were selected as the builder for the 2016 Ideal Home!

Built in Vestavia Hills, Alabama, this Ideal Home features four bedrooms, a bonus room, an outdoor living space and kitchen, and all the luxuries that coincide with today’s technological trends. An Ideal Home is one that satisfies all the needs of a buyer, functions smoothly and simplifies life in every imaginable way.

“This home is truly an Ideal Home,” says builder Jeremy Wright of J. Wright Building Company. “The products and features all work together to make living easy and comfortable throughout the home.”

Walking to the front door alone will make your heart skip a beat. This beautiful home mimics a farmhouse style with rooms that are comfy, cozy and full of charm. Despite its farmhouse style, the home also incorporates traditional elements, as well as class and comfort. With reclaimed wood features and relaxed furniture, guests are invited in with a sense of pleasure.

The home includes an open living space, bright kitchen with island, cozy breakfast nook, butler’s panty/wet bar, walk-in appliance pantry and an elegant, formal dining room. The master bedroom features an abundance of windows and unique ceiling treatment, while the spa-like bath has a glass-enclosed walk-through shower with dual heads, a free-standing tub, oversized vanities, and dual closets with built-ins.

Other features found in the Ideal Home include a home office, second-story loft designed as a combination play room and media room, a reading nook, oversized laundry room, mudroom and three-car garage.

Outdoor livingThe living space extends to the backyard thanks to a large outdoor living space. The covered area features a dining space, outdoor fireplace and television, as well as an outdoor kitchen with a gas grill, ceramic charcoal grill, mini-refrigerator, sink and more. A large uncovered patio offers even more entertaining space, and the fun continues with an outdoor firepit flanked by bench seating. There is even outdoor living space on the front of the home with a large L-shaped porch.

  • I came across the 2016 GBAHB Ideal Home on Pinterest. It is the exact color I am envisioning for my home in Florida. I even have the dark bronze windows featured. Would you be able to share the exterior paint color? It is perfect!
