The open floor plan of McNutt's home is spacious and welcoming.

Karen and Walt McNutt's new home in northwest Sidney is spacious, warm and inviting. As an older couple, they worked with general contractor M&S Builders to design a home that would accommodate their lifestyle and plan for whatever the future may bring. There are no stairs except to the basement, and the entire main floor is handicap accessible.

The craftsmanship of Mitch Shirk and his team of Sherman DeTienne and Kyle Williams is evident everywhere in the home, from the fabulous tile work in the bathrooms to the excellent drywall throughout. All the sub contractors and suppliers are also local including: Franz Construction, Corland Construction LLC, Creative Solutions, Prairie Electric, Skyline Plumbing, Frontier Heating, Lander Painting, Sidney Paint and Glass, Larry Hanzek, Top Gun Floorz, Big Sky Siding and Windows, CM Built Doors, Builders First Source, ElectricLand, Chads Furniture, PATH, The Rug Emporium, Johnson Hardware & Furniture and Custom Fencing & Welding. McNutt's truly appreciate the skill and professionalism of everyone who worked on their new home.

The stunning front door opens on a fabulous foyer, then a large, homey living room featuring comfortable furniture and one of Walt's favorite features, a large screen TV which was downstairs in their old house. A large east facing window bathes the room in natural light while a gorgeous stained glass fixture decorates a ceiling fan. China cabinets filled with beautiful antique dishes and glassware complete the décor, and a warm area rug ties the room together.

The open concept then leads into the kitchen and dining room. A spacious patio off the dining room provides a relaxing outdoor area with plenty of room for guests.

The kitchen features a large L shaped island with seating for six, where the conversation can flow during cooking prep and casual dining. An undermount bar sink and beverage center, one of Karen's favorite features, provide for easy entertaining.

The Dura Supreme cabinets in the kitchen, laundry and office glow a warm brown in a toast stain complimented beautifully by the Cambria quartz counter tops in Windemere. The Oxford door style features integral fingerpulls. Pull-out pantry and garbage, a super susan and rollouts in the base cabinets all contribute to ease and convenience in the kitchen. Stainless steel appliances complete the look.

Everyone's favorite feature is the huge L shaped pantry. Shelving by Lifespan Closets provides the perfect spaces for food and small appliances.

The laundry room, which is right off the garage, is designed for convenience with a sink, a laundry organizing area, a fold-down ironing board and a coat closet. A half bath provides for easy wash-ups.

The guest en suite may make company want to extend their stay! The welcoming bedroom is joined by a spacious bathroom, featuring a large walk-in shower. The cabinetry is by Bertch with Cambria tops.

Walt McNutt's haven is the garage with Case IH red cabinets.

The master bedroom, with a large walk-in closet by Lifespan, is roomy and comfortable. The adjoining master bath features a heated floor and a huge walk-in shower with gorgeous tile work. The double vanity is by Bertch with a quartz top.

The full basement with a heated floor, has endless possibilities. There is ample storage space and McNutts plan to turn one room into a combined bedroom/sitting room for guests. A full bath with tub adjoins that space.

Karen and Walt share an office with a u-shaped desk, all custom made from Dura Supreme cabinets, each with their own ample space and Case IH chairs of course.

Walt's haven is the three car garage which has lots of organization, including cabinets in the red Case IH colors.

Landscaping and fencing are in progress with plans to have at least part of the yard sodded this fall.

The beautiful McNutt home is truly a testament to the incredible local talent and resources available in Sidney.
