Picture this. It’s a Sunday morning in early autumn. There’s no alarm set, so you wake up naturally to the birds chirping, raise the blinds and take in the fall colour outside. The morning sunlight spills into your bedroom and your ensuite bath, creating a shimmering glow on the shower tiles.
After you lather, rinse and repeat, you make breakfast with your family and enjoy it together at your gleaming kitchen island. You compare notes for the day ahead. Your parents are coming for dinner, so there will be a trip to the farmers’ market for groceries, and your daughter needs help with her homework.
As you make your grocery list, you step inside your spacious walk-in pantry to take inventory of what you already have. Its smartly organized shelving is well stocked, so it’s only a matter of seconds before you realize you just need to pick up a few fresh vegetables to round out your dinner plan.
Before heading out, you sit down with your daughter in your home office just steps away from the kitchen to help her tackle her homework. You’re still close to the action, but have the option to close the door for peace and quiet in times like this. It’s also the perfect space to sit down and pay bills, or work on your side hustle.
Post farmers’ market, you still have time to spare before your parents arrive, so you check in on your family and then squeeze in 30 minutes of yoga in the bright, airy flex space at the top of the stairs. You’re grateful to have this extra breathing room in the house, with the option to convert it to another bedroom or office if your family’s needs change in the future.
Fast forward to evening, and your parents have arrived. Your partner helms the barbecue on the back deck, your daughter helps make a salad and your parents keep the conversation and the wine flowing from the kitchen island, while you pull the rest together. There’s plenty of space for everyone to pitch in. As you sit down to eat at the dining table, a fire glows nearby in the living room fireplace—it’s open-concept living at its finest.
After dinner, everyone gathers in the living room to chat around fire, with hot apple cider from the farmers’ market in hand. It’s a cosy way to cap off the weekend, but it’s not over yet. Once your parents make their way home, and your kids are in bed, you decide to take a Sunday-night soak in your free-standing tub with a good book and a glass of wine. As you relax and unwind, you take a moment to appreciate a well-lived weekend in your well-designed home.
This is just one version of a day in the life of The Evoke, our newest home design. If you’re looking for a new home in Saskatoon, here are a few more benefits of this particular floor plan:
• Optional garage extension: If you own a boat, a third vehicle, or simply want extra space to set up a workshop, we can extend the length of the garage to accommodate your needs.
• Optional living room extension: If you’re building your new home on one of Saskatoon’s wider lots, you’ll have the option to extend the width of your living room to suit your family’s needs.
• Optional bonus room: A bright, open space at the top of the stairs can be converted to an extra bedroom or office should your family’s needs change in the future.
