St. Jude Dream Home entering final stages of construction

By  | 

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) -- This year's St. Jude Dream Home is getting into the final stages of construction.

Located in the Hillview Mills subdivision, the house is valued at $325,000.

"We have some really cool features in this house," says Darrell Sweets with Sweets Design Build. "The mater bathroom is going to have a wow factor. We've got a great tile shower, and it's a great setup with the master bedroom suite."

"The kitchen is going to be great again this year. We've got a huge island in the center of that, white cabinets -- which is very popular -- craftsman style," he adds.

"We've got volume ceilings, which is a little bit different than what we've done in the past. It's going to give it a great open feel and really give some character to this house," he explains.

As of Sunday, the house still needed finishing touches on the inside, but Sweets says everything is right on schedule for the open house tours to begin as planned on July 22nd.

"We are on the final push," he says, "We are just now finishing up walls and lots of details -- countertops, getting ready to put floor-coverings in -- and prepping everything for the furniture to be staged."

Sweets adds that although it can be a bit stressful putting these final pieces together, "It's exciting to see the big picture come together and see how everything works."
