Sharp Modern Family
This was my entry for Week #6 of the Build-n-Share Weekly Challenges. For Week 6, we had to build a house for The Sharps. The requirements were an in-law unit for Derek Sharp’s mother, Loretta.
A single-story home
No larger than a 40×40 lot (upon further consideration, a LITTLE bigger is OK)
1 main home with 2 BR and 1.5 BA
1 smaller build with a little apartment for Loretta
The Main Home
Interior of the main home in shades of brown, yellow, white/cream, and purple (Special Note: (it says) please no gold. And try to use just these colors as much as possible. You can use them in any hues and combination that looks good to you).
1 master bedroom for Derek and Sheryl
1 bedroom for teen Latoya, with a small reading and study area
A little spot for Derek to exercise. Should be tucked away and not a focal point in the home.
The Smaller House
Apartment for Loretta (elder) with small kitchen, full bathroom, bedroom, and small sitting area for entertaining
An office for Sheryl
Between the two homes
A beautiful garden
A stone path joining the two homes
A small area for outside entertaining with a grill and a bistro table and chairs
I decided to do a modern build as I saw The Sharps as more of a hip trendy family. I really struggled with it though and started over 3 times. I finally just had to finish it out since I was running out of time. I barely made it in by the entry deadline. And because I had to rush, I didn’t get to decorate as detailed as I liked.
