New Home for Returning Couple

The homeowners of this residence are finally able to return to Hawaii following their mainland careers. The original home that sat on the family property was built decades earlier and it showed its age. The couple decided it made good sense to start over and rebuild a residence that would support them for the rest of their lives.

The entry welcomes visitors with broad double doors. Light floods the living area and bounces off of gleaming laminate floors. Vaulted ceilings, customary to Graham Builders’ homes, gives a grand impression to this already spacious residence. Universal design principles, ideals that make a space friendly to people of all physical abilities, are evident so the home will continue to be a sanctuary to its residents as they age.

Custom touches lend a warm feel throughout this home. A Japanese screen transplanted from the original dwelling honors the family’s past. There are several built-in features like a book case at the end of the kitchen island, a desk in the recreation room and a wall of shelves in the study. All add to the home’s character and will spare the need for extra space-hogging furniture.

Graham Builders is a true design+build firm with architectural designers, estimators and construction managers on staff. Each employee is dedicated to collaborating with homeowners so they are able to achieve their visions while remaining within budget. Graham is the first contractor in Hawaii to have a National Association of Home Builder’s Certified Aging in Place Specialist (CAPS) on staff and has helped hundreds of homeowners to design and build their dream home.
