S2, E6: Building a New Home in an Historic Area
In today's episode, we're on-site at the Schaper's custom home building project in the historic Dogtown neighborhood on the western edge of St. Louis, MO.
Hibbs Homes has a lot of experience building new homes in neighborhoods where the history of the homes is ingrained in the community's character. We've built new homes in Dogtown, Kirkwood, and Webster Groves where a brand new construction home will be nestled among century-old homes and business districts.
The Dogtown neighborhood is a tight-knit community where being neighborly is the rule. This community is known for brick making and close urban living. Architecturally, homes in Dogtown narrow brick homes with distinctive, large porches. Hibbs Homes has incorporated a gorgeous front porch, a large rear deck, and a rooftop patio in this design to make sure the Schaper's home carries on that distinct tradition and style.
We will continue the conversation about timeless design with Sam Morgan, one of our design partners in Salt Lake City, UT and St Louis. We will discuss why it is important to work with a builder who specializes in custom homes and can work with your architect to value-engineer your home's design to make the most of your construction budget.
