Inside the Langley

Now that the Langley is complete, let’s have a look around.

This view, from the living room looking toward the entry, gives a real sense of the open feel of this house. And the staircase is such a fantastic focal point, perfect for displaying family pictures.

The living room has plenty of space and a gas fireplace framed with beautiful tile for cozy nights by the fire. In addition, the wall above the fireplace is ready for your tv, with power and cable outlets already installed.

The open feel continues through the entry and kitchen, which offer no-wax vinyl floors.

The kitchen provides plenty of storage and work space, as well as a Fridigaire dishwasher, range and microwave. This kitchen is also full of light, from the lovely window over the sink and plenty of recessed lighting.

Hair dryer, curling iron, electric toothbrushes and razor? No problem in this master bath. The huge master bathroom includes a two sink vanity with convenient electrical outlets on either side, shower stall with glass door, and a deep soaking tub. Who wouldn’t want to end the day with a relaxing bath in here?

The Finished Langley

It’s only been 121 days since we started construction on our Langley model in Foxbury Park, and the house is now complete. In four short months, the Langley has grown from a plan and a lot into a new Regent Home, ready to welcome it’s first owner.

From the ground up, and in all the details, our newest home is another example of the quality you will find in every Regent Home.

From whole house systems, including the efficient gas forced air heating system with programmable thermostat, to smaller items like recessed kitchen lighting, right down to the kickplate and knocker on the front door, we take great pride in building homes that provide true value to their owners.

The Langley takes shape

It’s been a busy couple of weeks at Foxbury Park, and while we were unfortunately weren’t able to get pictures of the foundation for you, we do have a couple of pictures of the Langley during the framing process. Once the foundation was poured, our framers started building a platform which is secured to the foundation and forms the floor of the house’s main floor. Then the walls are erected and sheathed, as you can see here:

Once the first floor walls are in place, another platform is built on top, which will become the second story floor, followed by the walls for the second story.

When the second story is ready it will have the roof trusses attached and covered to form the roof. You can see some of the trusses that are ready for installation at the top of the last picture. The next step in the process will be siding the house, and hopefully we will be able to show you that very soon.

Constructing a Regent Home

Now that we have a blog, we thought it would be a great idea to give you an insider’s view of the construction process.  To do that, we’ve chosen a house to follow during construction.  We’ve had a great deal of interest in a house that offers a master suite on the main floor, and so we’ve chosen the Langley model we recently started in our Foxbury Park neighborhood as our house.  While it may be hard to visualize the finished house now, when complete it will offer buyers a main-floor master suite with vaulted ceiling, walk-in closet and five piece bath. This plan also offers two additional bedrooms upstairs with a loft area and much more, as seen in the plan. Starting next week, we’ll post a new picture and information about the different stages of construction each week. Feel free to post any questions you might have in the comments and we’ll do our best to answer them. We hope you’ll join us each week as we watch our newest plan become our newest Regent Home.
