Building a custom designed house probably ranks high on every homeowner’s dream list. At Suncadia, we know how important it is for members of our community to build a home they will love for years to come, one that fits their lifestyle and that they are happy to come home to weekend after weekend. That’s why we have partnered with some of the best home builders in Washington.
Meet Semi Bird, General Manager at Patriot Builders, a company where every project takes on a client-centric approach. Bird, who served in the military for 24 years, received his formal training in civil engineering and construction through the U.S. Army as a Special Forces Engineer. Five years ago, Bird established Patriot Builders and as a Suncadia owner himself, he’s excited to be working on his first Suncadia home. “What I love about Suncadia is that although there is a sense of exclusivity about it, it’s very family friendly,” says Bird. “Yes, it’s very nice and it’s beautiful but it’s a place that families can go. For me, family is everything.”
Patriot Builders is currently working on a home in the popular Prospector's Reach neighborhood. “We consider this our model home,” says Bird. “We really put a lot of heart to design it, to have something new and unique in the community. The design is what I call ‘lodge luxury’ because there are elements of traditional fused with modern.”
Set along the tee boxes on the 18th fairway of the Prospector Golf Course, this home will bask in southern exposure and offer south Cle Elum Ridge views. “The home will feature elements of stone and wood, custom cabinetry and granite countertops throughout,” says Bird. “Everything flows very nicely, this home has feng shui.”
Featuring just over 2,600 square feet of living space, the home will is designed for the type of family who loves to entertain at home—think a gourmet kitchen and open concept living area with lots of natural light, a fireplace and doors that open to a patio for indoor/outdoor entertaining. But it’s also designed so that parents can retreat to their own sanctuary. “The home has a separate suite at the opposite end of the house from where the kids’ rooms, the bunkroom and the rec room are. It’s the perfect room for mom and dad to retreat to,” says Bird. He adds that the house is built with energy efficiency in mind. “It’s very well insulated, it has high end heating and AC, and top-of-the-line Energy Star appliances in stainless steel. “When I build a house, I build to the pattern of life, meaning that a house should reflect a family,” says Bird. “This is a house that is friendly and is designed to provide space for kids and space for adults.”
