A star is born on Coyote Rock Lane in SpokaneMilionis Homes is known to be one of the premier luxury custom home builders in Spokane. Coyote Rock is Spokane's newest waterfront development featuring the most amazing lots available on the Spokane river at this time. Soon a Milionis home will grace this wonderful property. How cool is that?
The River House on Coyote Rock Lane is taking shape
I was very excited when I saw the completed framing of the River House at Coyote Rock in Spokane. I was excited because a funny thing has been happening to me the last couple of years. During the late 50’s and 60’s there was a style of home referred to as modern. The modern design featured large expanses of glass and flat or low pitched shed style roof lines. Modern designs were basic looking with modest lines. Some of the richest people in Hollywood and other exclusive communities lived in luxury homes with modern designs. I never liked them. To me they were boring.
In the past few years I have found myself drawn to those modern designs from my youth. I found myself looking at them in a new way when they appeared in films and television. I stared at them when I drove past on the street. I realized one day that I really liked the old modern designs and I would like to build one for myself. I like the elegant clean lines, which provide beauty and class like a woman wearing a stylish black dress and a diamond pennant.
When I drove down the street into the Coyote Rock development and saw the River House that Milionis Homes had just completed framing. I wondered if this was the start of a new trend or just a treat for the fans of mid century modern. A modern design from the last century meets a new century. Let the fun begin.

Milionis Homes at work on The Cedar at Legacy RidgeMilionis Homes has been building custom homes in the Legacy Ridge development for over 10 years. As our reputation for attention to detail and impeccable craftsmanship continues to grow we receive an increasing number of requests to build luxury homes in the prestigious Legacy Ridge development in Liberty Lake, WA.
Currently, we are building a Northwest Craftsman design that we call The Cedar. The Cedar won it's name because the home is going to be swathed in cedar siding. Cedar siding once the gold standard material for quality built homes became a precious commodity in the wake of the Spotted Owl crisis of the 1990's. Cedar siding is still one of the toughest and longest lasting materials available for home siding. Sitting at the top of the Legacy Ridge Development in Liberty Lake, The Cedar features spectacular views. The home is a custom design that takes advantage of the stunning location while providing the amenities the homeowners wanted in the style they envisioned. The 6,088 square foot home will be built to pamper and delighting the owners. The expertly designed home features a spacious bonus room above the 3-car garage. This luxury home is being carefully crafted in the Milionis tradition for the Romain family.

The Great Room Framing Completed
This view of the great room shows the scale that this room will have when the home is complete. Milionis Homes has been building in Legacy Ridge at Liberty Lake, Wa for more than 10 years. This Milionis home sits on one of the nicest streets in Legacy Ridge.
The cedar siding is being installedAs you can see the cedar and the stone blend to help create an exterior that exemplifies the Northwest Crafstman design. Activity on the site currently includes siding installation, Electrical Trim on the interior and exterior, Flooring installs, Appliance installs and a host of other activities.
The cabinets are being installedThe cabinets are a standout, even in one of the most prestigious neighborhoods in Liberty Lake. Mahogany has long been prized for it's beauty and durability. Once a standard material used in fine furniture and building interiors, mahogany has become too costly for use in most building interiors. Those who love wood will smile with delight when they realize that they are looking at mahogany cabinets. The cabinets pictured are in the dining room. They have just been hung on the wall and will soon have the lighting and hardware completed. Milionis Homes builds custom homes in Liberty Lake every year, but not many of them have mahogany cabinets and cedar siding.
Even the laundry room is a masterpieceThe Cedar was a beehive of activity this week as everyone was putting the final touches on their part of this stylish custom home built at the top of Legacy Ridge in Liberty Lake, WA. The Laundry room was one of the quietest rooms in the house and clearly shows why a luxury custom home can make everyday life so much easier. The depth of design and quality of materials used in this home follow through even in the laundry room. Milionis Homes has built many custom homes in Liberty Lake over the last 10 years. The Cedar is and excellent example of the owner creating a home that will support their lifestyle during both work and play. When you also consider the longevity of the interior and exterior materials used throughout this home, you realize the Cedar is truly a masterpiece of form and function.
The cedar siding is being stainedThe cedar siding is getting one more coat of stain, but the richness of the finished product is already apparent. Semi-transparent stains bring out the beauty of the wood without covering it up completely. Solid body stains do a great job protecting the wood, but they hide the glow of the cedar siding. The purpose of our blog posts is to show a little of what goes on as a home is built. Now, it is almost time to bring in the professional photographer to present the full beauty of the completely finished home. As soon as the professional pictures are posted I will add a link here to direct you to them.
We have many images of completed projects for you to enjoy in our gallery pages.
