Groundbreaking Ceremony: The Zolin Family

We're starting a new series here at Starwood giving you a first look at some of our latest projects & introducing our newest clients.

Our first spotlight in this series is the Zolin Residence. This beautiful family of four is building their Starwood dream home in the East Valley. Here at Starwood Custom Homes, we are committed to providing an easy-to-understand path to the homebuilding process. It’s a privilege to help clients like Kelly & Josh Zolin, who have been wonderful to work with every step of the way!

Building a new home is a huge decision + milestone! For some families, it's one of the biggest investments they will make in their lifetime. So it is important to choose the right custom home builder for you and your family.

"I scoured the internet for floorplans for many months before we decided custom was the way for us to go. We knew we wanted to include some pretty unique features and the only way to achieve what we wanted was with a custom home builder. We chose Starwood after looking at the portfolios of custom builders in our area. We knew right away Starwood would be able to bring our vision to life. We know others who have had a positive experience." - Kelly Zolin

The best part about building a custom home is having the ability to personalize every inch/space of the home. Read on to hear about the unique features the Zolin family included in their Starwood Custom Home.

"The most unique feature, I think, is the interior atrium which is fully enclosed inside the house and open to the sky. We are also hiding our pantry & and we will have a secret room! One more thing I think is pretty cool is the door from our garage to the pantry so I can drop groceries without walking across the house." - Kelly Zolin

Your home is your sanctuary, the place where your family gathers to make lasting memories. When you build a custom home that's personalized to your lifestyle & built to your family's wants and needs — everyday life becomes that much more exciting.

"We are both really excited about our interior atrium! It will have 3 sliding doors, turf, seating, & a gas fireplace. Another spot we are really looking forward to is our backyard. It will include our pool, bocce court, putting green & chipping station, swing set, & an RV garage being used as a pool house & my husband's "man cave". Our girls are most excited about their new playroom!" - Kelly Zolin

The Zolin's have been documenting their Starwood Custom Home journey every step of the way! They even created an Instagram account dedicated entirely to their new home. How fun, right?! You can follow along by clicking on the post below or by clicking this link: @HeyLookOurNewHouse.
