Idea House 2012: Putting on the final touches

By John Kirchner July 12, 2012

We’ve been following the progress of the 2012 Southern Living Idea House project with a great video series documenting the ins and outs — from moving the home to a new foundation to the installation of new Marvin windows to, now in this latest installation, putting on the final touches.

In this video, the design team discusses the process they used for how rooms are placed, planned and arranged, making sure each space takes advantage of all it has to offer: natural light, views, space, flow with other spaces, etc. Using a traditional farmhouse style as the inspiration, they made sure to bring the home up to the cutting edge of the 21st century, including highly energy-efficient windows, digital programmable thermostats and so much more.

Watch this fifth and final video below, and check out to see the rest of the series.
