Invest in Your Nest – Masthead Home Makeover
As the owner of the Affordable Companies, David Decker has seen a lot of renovations over the years. But, as David will tell you, its nothing like doing your own!
When Decker purchased his Geist home, it was bank owned and had been empty for five years. He knew he would have to invest in his new nest to make this home attractive and livable once again! So Decker put his home renovation expertise to work and dove into his new project.
The roof needed to be replaced and they painted the exterior of the home. Then, he gutted the inside leaving only the exposed brick fireplaces on the main and lower levels. “There was a large built-in aquarium in the kitchen that we removed to make way for some new white cabinets, granite countertops, and a great-looking backsplash,” says David. The black appliances were fairly new, so Decker kept those for his black and white kitchen. The rest of the home had a fairly open floor plan making it easy to work with. Decker says his company does flooring, cabinets, and painting, so once they got to the decorating, he called CC Homes in Carmel for a little help.
The result is a transitional contemporary style with a palette of grays, blacks, and whites for a cool, clean look. Decker says his favorite room is the master with a bathroom featuring marble floors and a curbless shower for easy accessibility. Another favorite spot is his screened-in porch with steps leading down to a sitting area and fire pit.
The lower level is just as light and bright as the main floor with windows offering views of the woods and the lake nearby. Decker says he is comfortable in his newly decorated home and proud to call his Geist digs, home sweet home!
