Bob looks on as artisan Ken Forcier applies the second "layer" of the stencil he's using to decorate in the parlor of the modern Colonial. For this layer, Forcier has chosen an ochre hue to complement the first shade of blue.
This project focuses on the construction of a Colonial-style home built with both history and the future in mind. While the 4-bedroom, 4-bath home will have a traditional exterior and interior detailing, the plan will suit the needs of a modern family, including easy-maintenance fireplaces, a great room, master suite, sun room, 3-car garage, and a large walk-out basement with plenty of room for recreation and indoor/outdoor living.
