The Morrison Story
...an inspiration

Named after one of the founding designers of the Arts & Crafts movement, this, our model home in Aurora, Ohio, is an example of what can be designed and built in a gated, Jack Nicholas golfing community. This 7,400 square foot Arts & Crafts influenced home has been featured on TV, in print and as a recipient of design awards. What others have said about this open floor plan based, cathedral, 1 ½ story, log and timber refuge:

  • “I feel like I’m on vacation when I walk in the door.”
  • “Some wood homes have too much wood for a house we’d live in all year long. This has the right balance of the feel of wood and the use of color.”
  • “I own two 7,500 sq. ft. homes, one on Lake Tahoe, and I’ve never felt more comfortable, like I can be me, as I feel in this home.”

A great amount of research, and input from homeowners, designers, and professional consultants was solicited to design a most spectacular home. The objective was to create an extraordinary display that would powerfully merchandize the unique aspects of Badger Brothers Homes of Natural Distinction and fit the precise requirements of our homebuyers who have been aggressively raising the bar on what they want and need. 


First and foremost this had to be an emotional home. It had to be high touch, loaded with inspirational elements, a brush of spirituality, strengths in natural materials, with highly detailed intimate areas. Our clients had to subjectively fall in love from the moment they drive into the driveway.


To accomplish this objective, the architecture is large and cohesive in scale but maintains intimate areas.  Curves and radials are emphasized in windows, walkways, entries, door headers, dormer ceilings, the dining room, and wherever we can find an opportunity to break away from the straight line. Large but finely Scribed Structural Log and Timber Trusses make the great room a memorable experience: this wooden cathedral with its stone fireplace, and overstuffed furnishings is not easily forgotten. It invites.


The upper bridge space of the wooden cathedral becomes the nest amongst the timber trusses, the twig scribed railings and the scribed staircase. This upper nest is a warm and intimate space for one.

 

The master bedroom is a restful blend of cedar cathedral ceilings, above a comforted log scribed Badger Brothers bed that is uniquely finished with colors of maroon distressed over a light wood base. The indirect cathedral lighting and sound system add a romantic mood to this restful space.

The master bath is luxurious and expensive. Tumbled marble floors, Moen's very best fixtures, extraordinary faucets and showerheads, Durango limestone shower and countertops, mood lighting and sound; the best  of the very best up-front! Its what our clients expect.

 

The kitchen is a central gathering space with counter and center island seating for six. Natural slate floors, beaded wood cabinetry, granite slab countertops, and then a view of the stone fireplace make this kitchen a nice place to be.

 

The dining room is a radial timber scribed cathedral surrounded by glass views to the golf course, (lakes and hills, or valleys and rivers) that usually accompany our clients. The timbered ceiling is wood that compliments the walls that are drywall and painted with a Ralph Lauren textured paint in an unusual, complex shade of green. It gives a warm, yet formal atmosphere to this unique dining space.

One bedroom upstairs is designed for children. It has whimsical colors, bunk beds, built in game and TV areas, and a bulletin board that list the soccer teams' practice schedule. The most popular item is the "ship's bunk" that was built into the roofline overlap, lined with beaded cedar, and stuffed with the most comfortable brightly colored bedding we could find. Every child that enters this room goes straight for this space!

The upstairs guest room presents the Badger Brothers barrel dormered ceiling. This curved cathedral roofline is crafted with Badger Brothers Natural Materials beaded white cedar. Indirect low voltage light strips provide a curved halo to this wonderful room. A Ralph Lauren shade of color on the walls compliments it all.

Our clients expect an upscale secondary entry, mud room, and laundry: so that's what we created. A barrel roof entry supported by massive stone columns takes you into a nicely appointed "mud" room: slate floors, Ralph Lauren walls, cedar doors into an attractive laundry equipped with the top of the line machines under Corian countertops.

Light and sound are critical elements to our clients. This Preserve model home was carefully designed with the collaboration of a lighting architect. It is a complex discipline that utilizes a wide array of lighting by a central computer. This home does not have light switches that clutter the walls. It uses touch pads that are programmed to create specific moods based on a series of pre-determined vinyets or arrays of light and sound. It assumes the consistent artform of intimate lighting and sound in every area of the home, inside and out.

The landscaping artform has become increasingly important. The necessity of capturing our clients' emotion from the moment they step out of the car; dictates a creative, appropriate landscaping. The Morrison is an extraordinary example of Organic Landscaping. This is the artform of large boulders, natural plantings, forest humus and downfall, and most important, a flowing stream that curves through natural waterfalls under the walkway and around the approach from an upper to a lower reflecting pond. It is a sensational creation to command an emotional first impression as our client walks up the curving paved walkway to our main entry.

The objective was to create the finest wood home in the industry that becomes a "must see" for anyone considering an upscale architectural luxury home made from special Badger Brothers Natural Materials. We have raised the bar to the level of our clients' highest criteria. All of us are quite overwhelmed. The emotion works both ways!
