An open house that’s not for sale


There’s an interesting twist in an open house this Saturday: It isn’t for sale. Instead, it’s open to show people what they can do if they build from the ground up.

There are a few reasons this is a good concept: As homes in Hawaii get older, the need to tear down and rebuild becomes a necessity. On the other hand, there are vacant lots for sale in good areas, but you may shy away from the thought of simply building your dream home. Or you may need to build additional structures on your property to accommodate a growing or aging family.

Graham Builders is holding an open house at 1697 Hoolaulea St. in Pearl City this Saturday from 1 to 4 p.m. to show an example of what’s possible. In this case, multigenerational living and accessibility were the homeowners’ priority when they decided to build their new home.

This home has 2,273 square feet of living area and comprises four bedrooms (two of which are master suites) and 3.5 bathrooms on two levels. The total area is 3,067 square feet including the carport, entry, covered deck, and storage. The home is also designed to be energy efficient where possible.

The spacious floor plan allows for the three generations to live comfortably and gather together, but provides for separate living spaces when needed. Accessibility is key, as they have planned for their grandmother to be able to access the large lanai from her bedroom.
