The homeowner lives full-time in Florida but all of their children go to school in Ohio. They choose Lucke Homes, a Cincinnati-based custom homebuilder, to build a home they could gather in and be together as a family. In addition to creating a family space, they also needed a house for entertaining. The kitchen needed to be super functional and have an easy flow when catering services would be used. A coffee station is around the corner, which includes a built-in Miele coffee maker. With the customer living full-me in Florida and the interior designer being Chicago based, working through the selection process was a challenging but rewarding experience.
