Every time I watched my favorite shows on HGTV; namely, House Hunters, House Hunters International, Property Brothers, Virgin Properties and the list goes on...I would immediately connect to our MUST HAVE LIST for our new home. Our Must Have List:
2. Long Driveway
3. Plenty of Parking
4. Large Closets
5. Large Kitchen with plenty of cabinet space and lastly, a huge.....
6. Master Bedroom
I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE our MASTER SUITE!!
The floor plan that you see here is from the new ROME 05! We have the ROME 04! I am completely annoyed that when we were purchasing the ROME we were told hundreds of times that the ROME could not accommodate many features that I was asking about. I ended up putting in 13 custom requests to create some character in our home. I am going to save that RANT for another post so that I can stay focused on this post about our Master Suite which I LOVE!
If you notice from the floor plan, the master suite is on one side of the house. Bedrooms 3 & 4 including the LOFT occupy the other side of the house. We did two things in our master suite that I love: 1. Combined bedroom 2 & the bathroom closet into my dressing room. 2. Combined the sitting area and the bedroom closet into a larger gentlemen's closet for my husband. This means that the Master Suite side of our home is truly a Master Suite and I LOVE IT! Since the room is so huge, I intend to build/install a mini wet bar with cabinets in the room. I am still researching the perfect design and also designated the perfect location in the room.
|Notice the color of the headboard--I will share more about this below. For some reason my pictures are not in order of presentation. |
So bare with me. Thanks.
|The mattress requires several steps before it is ready to GO! |
DH is drilling holes in the head board to accommodate the pumps.
|This is the covering they placed over the base.|
There is a picture below where you can see the base before they covered it up with this nice padding.

The headboard is huge. This is the stock color--it's a beige linen fabric.
|The guys are hooking up the pump to the mattress.|
|Air pumps are ready to GO!|
Notice there is still plenty of space from the corner of the bed to the wall which can accommodate lots of furniture options.
|My pictures are so out of order. Hate it!|
But you can see the theme.
|There seems to be a slight problem here--the pumps won't go through so DH must drill larger holes.|
|Great Job! The pumps are through the holes.|
|DH returning the central vacuum to its home!|
The picture below shows the new stock fabric.
As I mentioned, the pictures and text out of order....ohhh well.
