Today’s building trends are leaps away from what they were even just a decade ago. As technology has evolved, homeowner’s lifestyles have progressed in interesting ways. One notable change is more people telecommuting from home. However, with the advent of tablet devices equipped with wireless internet many are carving out spaces in the kitchen or living spaces rather than utilizing traditional home offices. The hub of the house for today’s homeowner consists of larger kitchens outfitted with casual dining spaces and hybrid office/ workspaces. For new construction, a “smart wired” house is a must, and slim, sleek smart TVs that stream movies, allow web surfing and Skyping with long distance relatives are becoming a luxurious commonplace. Lighting, temperature, whole house audio, security and even pool equipment can now be controlled conveniently and even while away with an iPad or similar device.

In contrast with the mechanization of our lives, homeowners are balancing the technology with larger and well appointed outdoor living spaces more than ever before. With outstanding Southern Arizona weather most months of the year, outdoor kitchens ranging from the simple barbeque grill to fully appointed gourmet options (complete with accoutrements such as raised vegetable gardens, outdoor dishwashers and pizza ovens) are extremely popular. Exterior rooms with better furnishings and fireplaces allow for a comfortable connection with nature while entertaining or unwinding.

In the Tucson area, mountain views are especially desirable and beautiful land properties such as the one pictured above provide a gorgeous palette to construct your modern dream home- just the way it suits you.
