For our June getaway weekend, BeachBoy and I traveled to northern Georgia to visit the 2009 Southern Living Idea House at Achasta. 

Before our trip, however, I conducted a bit of an experiment.  You see, so often, I show BeachBoy a floorplan I KNOW he will love, and he gives it two thumbs down.  He just can’t visualize it.  So, I printed out the floorplan to the Idea House (since it had his name written all over it) and had him take  a look.  His response?  Dull.  Too open.  Boring.  Bland.  Not enough windows.  Typical. (and the list goes on)  In fact, the only thing he liked was the fact that it included a loft (keep that in mind).

Then, I took him to the finished product.  Here’s a peek at what we saw.
