design build houses

October 5 / Spinnaker Bay

Relocating from Minnesota to the water-front community of Spinnaker Bay in Long Beach, buyers purchased a home built in the 1980’s. Now, nearly 30 years later the house needed renovations.

The Design/Build Team of October 5, provided support with design, materials selection, and budgeting. Design/build was the ideal approach; it shortened construction time, provided a well-defined understanding of costs, and a single point of responsibility.


The project featured a redesigned kitchen and three bathrooms.

New dual-glazed windows, Italian plank-flooring, new doors, carpeting and paint completed the project.

Design Concept

Improving the floor plan, doubling storage capacity, and adding a breakfast counter were key factors for this design. Drywall was removed for plumbing and electrical changes. The simplicity and balance of white established the tone and color palette.

Stainless steel applicances compliment the contemporary look. Abalone glass tile was selected for the backsplash. It’s cool blue-steel tone marries the marine environement with the interior palette. Cast glass knobs and drawer pulls, LED lights, and delicate crystal pendants illuminate this sophisticated remodel.

Bathroom remodels included cabinets, countertops, fixtures, tile, shower enclosures, and custom lighting.

Living Room

Italian plank flooring included Vallelunga’s Tabula digital technology. It’s more than wood; it’s elegant and warm with a heart of gres porcelain.

During construction the homeowners returned to their Minnesota Lake home to spend a relaxing summer with family.
