The 2012 Home Show Expo

Des Moines Home Show Expo

This was the first Des Moines Home Show Expo entry from Drake Homes and we went all out. This epic new home was a fresh twist on a classic, prairie-style home design and it was a huge hit.

Inside the home, we incorporated natural materials, unique architectural features, tons of smart home technology and clean, unadorned lines with historic barn wood throughout. The spacious main level was designed with modern family life in mind with high ceilings, expansive windows overlooking the golf course and a covered deck that wrapped around the home.

The knotty alder cabinetry in the kitchen complemented the high-end Viking appliances, making this centralized room as beautiful as it was functional. In the master suite, custom touches such as a one-of-a-kind ceiling design, freestanding tub and LED-lit barrel ceiling added unmatched luxury.

The home’s lower level was given a prairie look with a farm boy twist. The beautiful flooring and the huge wet bar were all brought to life using more historic reclaimed timber from an Iowa farm. A pool room and poker area offered recreational options, in addition to the sunken family room and the stone fireplace that could also be enjoyed from the lower level's outdoor patio. Two additional bedrooms, one finished as an exercise room, completed this level.

This award-winning home is sold, but we have been building similar floor plans throughout Des Moines ever since!
