A Builder’s Dream Home
About this Project
When you’ve built over 2000 homes, you know what you want in your ultimate dream home. That’s exactly what Don Julian designed when it came time to build his home a few years ago.
On a lot in the country near the Kansas City metro area, the Julian home is beautifully designed to include many one-of-a-kind features like the artful front door. But beyond the grand entrance is a room that is simply unforgettable. It’s the glass room that houses the entertaining area and swimming pool.
Upon entering the glass enclosure, you’ll get the feel of being on a tropical island. The swimming pool is unique because it’s actually a natural ecosystem that takes care of itself. With extensive greenery, the swimming area is kept healthy and green with aquatic plants like cattails, water lilies, and duckweed which remove bacteria and other contaminants. The atmosphere makes a wonderful area for entertaining and recreation.
In addition to the glazed structure over the pool, Crystal Structures also added a skylight over the entryway at the front of the home. View the photos below, click to enlarge.
