Parade of Homes Craftsmenship Features of Model

Welcome to part two of our feature on Belman Homes 2011 Parade of Homes model, The Tuscany.  As we are about to embark on our very first Parade of Homes we discuss in this article we will showcase some of the great craftsmenship by our loyal trademen in our model.  This  is the second entry in a series on our model.  

The Craftsmenship of Belman Homes

Job Finished Woodwork:

All the woodwork on a Belman Home is shipped unfinished to the job site.  There it is carefully sorted and stained to the color of your choice by hand by our skilled painting crew.  From there we install it and then carefully hand sand it, sand coat it and varnish on the job site for an impeccible fit and finish.  This provides a smooth tight miter joints.

Custom Made Cabinets

We are one of very few builders that custom make our cabinets specifically for the job.  Each home is carefully measured after the home is framed.  You will see in the picture above that we are showing off the wood dove tail drawers with the soft close mechanisims.   There is also an amazing pull out spice rack, custom wood vent hood and roll out shelves, pull out garbage cans and many more hidden gems.  Check out the detailing on the crown molding on the top of the cabinets.  Here we are using an alder wood with a rich warm color.  

Brick Archways

This brick archway between the theater room and the bistro area is a fine touch and an example of the fine masonry work that our mason can do in our homes.

Stone Floors

This is not tile in the Tuscany.  It’s real stone.  This amazing floor is installed in a roman pattern with variable sizes and helps create the authentic tuscan look that we were going for.  The attention to detail is simply amazing.

Accent Corbles

One of the most unique touches on our Parde model is the custom made maple corbles that we installed under the archways.  This is an incredible touch that ads warmth to the home.  We had a similar bracket made to support the snack ledges in the kitchen.

Hand Troweld walls

Most Tuscan homes have plastered walls and we have replicated this texture which will whisk you away to a different time and place. You are sure to love the finished look.

Solid Maple Doors

Our Parade Model features real, solid maple doors that are job hung.  These doors are so heavy that we have to install an additional hinge on the doors!  We hand route and hang each door on site the old fashioned way; the way it’s supposed to be done.  

I hope you enjoyed our feature on our 2011 Parade of Homes Model. Stay tuned for our last segment where we discuss the layout of the home and all the great living spaces in our Tuscany model.
