Tired of being disappointed by resale homes on the market today?  Good news: building a brand new home can help you and your family get the ideal home, in the right location, with the features you need and want most.

The Difference is in the Details

Window Design

Windows are among the most important of building details. Beyond improving control of climate and airflow inside the home, windows impact a home’s visual appeal both outside and in. Natural light makes rooms appear larger and colors truer, and provides a connection to the outdoors that helps to improve mood and sleep patterns and boost productivity. Windows create a better living environment. With smart placement and careful detailing, windows can also enhance the drama of a space and add that special “pop” that makes your home memorable. In any new home design, custom or portfolio, Gulick Group places windows… and plenty of them… thoughtfully, with an eye for both form and function, considering site lines and furniture layout in each room to maximize the visual appeal of the home both inside and out.
