Each year, Southern Living Magazine features three newly built homes in the August edition of the magazine and designates the homes as "Idea Homes." In this program, sponsor products are used to build and decorate these amazing homes. Idea Homes are usually featured in large markets with a high density population. But due to the proximity of all the larger Texas metropolitan areas to Bryan College Station, our backyard has been selected for this prestigious honor and a home in the Traditions development in Bryan has been chosen. Many don't realize that Bryan College Station is located within 200 miles of 80% of the population of Texas! The other 2006 Idea Homes are located in Charleston, South Carolina and Tallahassee, Florida.

Southern Living Idea House Custom CabinetsThe homebuilder, Dale Christian of Jefferson Christian Homes, contacted KMC about being the cabinet supplier of choice for this prestigious project and an agreement was made to make this happen.

Cabinet selections include alder, rustic alder and paint-grade cabinets. Regional Manager Cerene Wharton has worked with the Interior Designer to put some great ideas into our cabinets, and Salesman Ernie Harvelle and Service Technician David Bankston are the Sales/Service Team for the Idea Home.

The Southern Living Idea House at Traditions consists of multiple structures, all inspired by regional Texas architecture and linked by a series of glass-filled halls and paths tucked into a spectacular site with a view of the golf course. What a great home to feature our cabinets!

Once the Idea Home is complete and decorated, the keys are turned over to the developer and public tours through the Idea Home begin. According to Southern Living Magazine, we can expect as many as 30,000 individuals to tour through the home from mid June through most of November, with many of those individuals driving in from our neighboring metropolitan areas to see the home. Those metropolitan areas just happen to be the markets in which we have our showrooms/sales offices, so what a great opportunity to showcase and advertise our Kent Moore Cabinets!
