Home for the Holidays
The holiday season is upon us! At this time of year our hearts and minds turn toward those held near and dear to us. With excitement we plan dinner parties and look forward to the food and fun we will be sharing with those we love. In anticipation of out of town travelers we prepare our homes to welcome our guests and to make their stay comfortable. Visions of holiday decorations and sounds of cheer fill our heads. Then it happens. The realization sets in that our kitchen table will only accommodate a dinner party of four, our family room only seats five, and our out of town visitors will be sleeping on the couch. For many this scenario rings true.
Now, imagine hosting the holidays in an energy efficient, custom home built by Solid Rock Custom Homes that is specifically designed to accommodate your lifestyle and entertaining needs. A grand door welcomes your guests into a beautiful foyer. Coats and purses are placed in the coat closet and friends and family proceed into the great room. High ceilings, expansive windows highlighting gorgeous views, elaborate woodwork, and beautiful light fixtures encompass the room. A crackling fireplace invites all to sit down, to fill its warmth, and to mingle awhile. Laughter escapes from the large kitchen as guests gather around the island to enjoy a drink with hors d’oeuvres. The smell of pies baking in the double ovens lingers through the air, as plates are topped with turkey and all the fixings, and people make their way to ample seating around the dining tables. The dinner and time of fellowship is enjoyed by all. Visitors disperse to enjoy a round of cards at the game table, a game of pool, a movie in the theater room, or a conversation in the great room. Others sit outside around the fire pit sharing stories while enjoying a hot drink. And when the night dies down, and everyone says their goodbyes, you show your out of town guests to their comfy rooms and say goodnight. Exhaling a deep breath you make your way down the hallway and reminisce about the night’s activities. You can still hear the laughter and see everyone thoroughly enjoying themselves. Then laying your head upon your pillow you think to yourself how blessed you are to have such a beautiful home that others can enjoy, and how happy you are to be home for holidays.
Okay, it’s time to stop imaging what your life would be like living in such a home. It’s time you start living in it!
