Guys, I CAN’T wait any longer to show you this house! The team and I have been working hard on it for months, and it’s finally time to give it the ovation it deserves. Let’s take a closer look at The Oglesbee’s Modern Dream Home!

Meet The Family!

The Oglesbees are a fantastic local family who legit are THE most fun family to be around. Allison is the lead buyer specialist for the Exnicios Group at Keller Williams, making her an expert on beautiful homes. She’s a lifelong Tangipahoa Parish resident and a proud Southeastern University Alumni, so it was only fitting that she and her family build their forever home here in Hammond, LA.

When Allison called me about custom building a home for her property, I was super-duper excited to get started! We put together a list of everything she was looking for:

✓ Large entertainment space

✓ Shaded outdoor areas

✓ Multipurpose rooms

✓ Interior beams

Needless to say, this Michigan Street house is one of my favorite custom-built homes in Hammond, LA! Let’s look at some of its features and see why!

Their Favorite Custom Designs

One of the Oglesbees’ favorite features was the outdoor kitchen and living area with the painted brick fireplace. It’s the perfect detail for entertaining, especially with indoor and outdoor access. This kitchen design was a win-win for everyone!

The beautiful stained tongue and groove on the front of the house are so inviting leading into the foyer, tying in with the deep brown interior beams and the German Shmere on the fireplace and sidewall brick bringing the whole look together. Pale Birchwood flooring looks fantastic in contrast!

Did I mention the huge walk-in closet? More space equals more cute clothes and shoes, and who doesn’t love that!

Another custom feature Allison adores is her huge indoor kitchen! The island is perfect for all things cooking, cleaning, and entertaining guests. Since the Oglesbee’s love to entertain, having extra kitchen space was super important to them. We were able to make that happen with the walk-in pantry that has the extra counter space and electrical outlets for appliances, allowing for as much space as possible in the kitchen.

I love the smokey storm quartzite countertops and huge mirrors in the Master Bathroom. Allison wanted a beautiful custom glass window in the step-in shower, bringing so much light and color into the room. I love the tub, too. It’s just a gorgeous space.

The details in this custom-built home are endless. From the double patio doors, the cathedral ceilings, floor-to-ceiling windows, to the diamond and octagon star pallet on the Master Bathroom floor. These details are what make this modern build shine!

The Oglesbees’ Advice To Newbie Custom Home Builders

Now that the Oglesbees have experienced a custom home build of their own, they want to share the joy with others! It is safe to say that Allison is 100% positive that using eNg Designs & Construction was the right choice for her and her family.

When we asked what advice Allison would give to others looking to build custom homes, she said (and I love this): “If you’re ready, start the build!” Don’t wait for lumber prices to go down. Interest rates are so low right now that the cost of materials is negligible.

If this gets you excited about building a custom home of your own, holler at the custom home builders at eNg Designs & Construction. Let’s make your Hammond, LA home perfect!
