Our Favorite OMG Additions


fifteen-car-garage“We have done some fun, cool things like hidden passageways and rooms, a 15-car garage, a fireman’s pole, a six-person shower, and a story-and-a-half shower. That is the nature of custom building.” – Bryan Hutchinson, Victor Myers Custom Homes

“A glass-bottom swimming pool over the basement created a really cool visual reflection in the room.” – Mark Molthan, Platinum Series by Mark Molthanmarble-lined-dog-wash

“A full-sized marble-lined dog wash.” – Paul Pastore, Waterside Properties

winston-churchill-study-room“An exact replica of Winston Churchill’s study.” – John Jarrett, The Ed Jarrett Company

“We just completed a home on Deloache in Old Preston Hollow that has a basement wine cellar that holds 5,000 bottles, along with a tasting room.” – Tony Visconti, Bella Custom Homes

basement-wine-cellar-model-train-room

“An 1,800-square-foot model train room that is on the level— if not higher—than what they do at NorthPark over the holidays. It is being donated to the Frisco Railroad Museum.” – Michael Munir, Sharif & Munir Custom Homes


More Moments We Love!


“Right now, we happen to be making a glass walk overtop to a wine basement below the kitchen entrance. When you walk into the kitchen, you’ll look down through the floor into a subterranean wine basement.” – Richard Miller, Richard Miller Custom Homes 

“On the ceiling in a media room, we had a light system that lit up like the sky at night. You could even see a shooting star occasionally.” – Garry Garrett, Garrett Brothers Luxury Homes

“Indoor Olympic-sized pool, completely enveloped in AC and heat.” – Susan Newell, Susan Newell Custom Homes

“We are installing an exterior driveway turntable now— easier to turn around and saves some large trees.” – Les Owens, LRO Residential

“Piano lacquer finish on millwork and walls.” – Larry Hartman, Larry Hartman Construction
