“I was not expecting what I saw. I was completely blown away,” said Bonny.
Bonny even admitted to debating about whether or not the homes they were touring were manufactured homes with their home consultant. However, Harold explained the differences between mobile, manufactured and modular homes.
“I was totally wrong and so glad I was wrong. And I was shocked,” said Alec. “I knew what her thoughts were. And, you know, I definitely had a preconceived notion of what a manufactured home was.”
They were looking for a 4 bedroom home, and when Harold showed them the Treyburn, they knew they had found their home. Alec is the cook in the family, so the open layout of the kitchen with all of the cabinets and the range hood was important to him. He loved the amount of prep space the home had, complete with enough storage for his favorite pots and pans - and everything he needs to make his famous spaghetti.
In addition, the fourth bedroom makes a great place for Alec to set up his home office. They use one bedroom for their granddaughter when she comes to visit and the additional one is used as a guest room for any of their kids.
The Taylors were shocked at the customizations they were able to make to their home as well, including flipping their floor plan and choosing from a selection of flooring options. And if you ask Bonny about her favorite room, she will tell you it’s her walk-in closet with her glamorous vanity setup.
Enjoying their home and more.
Alec and Bonny enjoy sitting in their open living room to watch their favorite movies together, listen to music and relax in front of their fireplace. Their property features a small pond that makes for a serene escape, and their view of the fields and mountains are the perfect picture to enjoy while sipping their morning coffee.
From celebrating their one-year wedding anniversary by eating their frozen wedding cake to hosting a family Thanksgiving with their kids they have already started to make great memories in their home.
“We had a big Thanksgiving finally with most of the kids here last year. It was special because of 2020, with everyone back,” said Bonny.
And their story doesn’t end here. Bonny’s passion for off-site built housing led her on an unexpected journey - stay tuned to learn what she is doing to help other families achieve homeownership!
