Permit me to brag ….

This is the house that my oldest son, Mark, designed last year and I’m so proud to say that it won the 2015 House of the Year award by the Moore County Home Builders Association. The write-up that accompanied the picture says it much better than I could …

"The McCrann residence was designed by Mark Dean of Imark Design …The building site's beautiful views of Lake Dornach greatly influenced the overall design approach. The property is shaped at a triangle with the small end at the driveway side which provided the design's greatest challenge as the garage had to be placed in front of the house. The solution entailed detaching the garage from the house and treating it as a separate support building that visually screens the home's entrance. Guests are invited to the Entry Terrace by walking around the Garage toward the sound of a water fountain and then arriving under the flat terrace roof at the large tumbled marble stairs that flow from the interior of the house. Upon entering the house the marble surface of the entry walkway and stairs is continued down the barrel vaulted Hall that connects the entry terrace with the rear lakeside terrace and the views of Lake Dornoch.”

Here are a few other views ….
I’m proud of all three children and my son-in-law but this is Mark’s time to shine !!
