Jim Norman, who founded Norman Building & Design in 1977, has an eye for design and superb craftsmanship. This newer home on the Broken Top golf course built by Norman Building & Design features a state-of-the-art contemporary interior while reflecting the Northwest styled exterior of homes located in the community.
The single story 2,700 square foot home has been designed to reflect a cleaner, more contemporary style. Instead of the usual stone fireplace specially milled planks of sapele, one of many varieties of mahogany, were used to create this dramatic centerpiece of the home’s great room.

kitchen All of the cabinetry and doors were designed and crafted by the Norman Team with special attention to creating a beautiful and more contemporary front door to greet visitors.
Notice the wood banding throughout the home that servs to unify the spaces while the abundance of windows, particularly corner windows, allow your eye to travel outward. The extensive use of glass contributes to the home feeling larger than homes of similar size while inviting the outdoors in no matter where you look.
The goal was to create a design that allowed the owners to use all the spaces daily, to live in the entire home yet be able to accommodate guests in suites when needed. The layout is totally focused on dual use spaces such as the media room than can be turned into a large guest room complete with a sofa that is a king size pull out bed, its own cabinet closet and bathroom.
The comfortable home boasts three full baths — the powder room has a beautiful shower that allows it to function as the bath for the adjacent craftroom/study for when additional guests visit.
The large covered deck has infrared heaters to extend the time outside during chilly evenings. One of only two in Broken Top the home design is clearly thinking of today’s lifestyle with a 1,600 square foot garage that accommodates the owner’s RV.
