When Joe and Julie Bowers purchased a foreclosure property in The Plantation, a large, upscale community in Ponte Vedra Beach, they planned to renovate the home in just 12 weeks. A 6,000-square-foot house with four bedrooms and five bathrooms, this was no small order.
Recently retired, Joe established IN2IT Homes, home improvement specialists that concentrate on older home remodels within an aggressive timeline. When he purchased the property in The Plantation, Joe looked to Moderna Pavers for a new driveway and corresponding front hardscape wall and columns.
“Moderna did our previous home’s driveway and patio and we were impressed with their speed, quality of work and competitive pricing,” Joe explains. “For this rehab, Moderna completed the job in less than a week and complimented the design and implementation of the lighting, irrigation and landscaping.”
Joe’s wife, Julie, is in charge of most of the design decisions when it comes to IN2IT Homes’ projects. “She wanted a wall for privacy and to add parking spots next to each garage for additional parking,” Joe explains. “Julie and Chris, owner of Moderna, were instrumental in designing the walls and parking spaces, as well as guestroom patio and sidewalk.”
When Joe and Julie Bowers of IN2IT Homes purchased this sprawling foreclosure home in The Plantation, it was in desperate need of some TLC. A stark, white stucco exterior, concrete slab driveway and little to no curb appeal was decreasing the value of the property.
Moderna Pavers demolished and removed the large concrete slab driveway and installed a custom paver driveway and corresponding hardscape walls for a clean, natural and finished look. A beautiful new wood and glass front door, stone accents on the façade of the home, darker exterior paint color and landscaping was added to compliment the hardscape and driveway.
“It is such a beautiful home and we are ready to do another one soon,” says Joe. “It was a terrific experience and we look forward to working with each of our suppliers like Moderna Pavers again soon.”
Project Information: The paver colors are a blend of sandstone, tan, and charcoal named Sierra. They are installed in random pattern alternating the size and direction of each paver. The edges of the project are complemented with a rectangular soldier course adding strength and a nice aestetic to the border of the project.
A curve was added to the entry steps to repeat the curving architecture of the covered portion of the entryway adding an elegant touch. The walls were constructed of a tumbled three piece "stonegate" wall block to give it an aged, antique look. The walls, columns and cap are also done in the Sierra color. Uplights are cast on the home, landscaping, and hardscaping to accent the home at night.
