Gonyea Homes upstairs loft on Parade of Homes 2016

Our designers have created a variety of fun and inviting lofts and play spaces, like this one in Discover Crossing where angled ceilings and sliding barn doors create a cozy, casual feeling.

The separate studio with tile flooring can be used for homework, arts and crafts, or as a home office.

The colorful alcove in our Kintyre model in Orono makes it easy to get work done, while staying connected to the rest of the gang. Who cares about spilled soda, muddy feet and messy science projects? The floor’s tile! Flexible living spaces like this one can be shared and used in countless ways.

Pocket Office Nook on 2015 Parade of Homes

Pocket offices close to the kitchen or greatroom make it easier to manage family life or stay in touch with the office. Many are designed with charging stations for laptops and smart phones. Half walls create a feeling of spaciousness and open up sight lines.
