Worth the Wait

By Barb Jeffers

Darrin and Sarah Cambern had a goal in mind after the birth of their son, Riley, 12 years ago. That goal was to build a new home for their growing family.

The Cambern’s worked hard and made plans, but the time just never seemed to be right as circumstances would arise and the house “kept getting put off,” Sarah said. As the couple continued planning the design of the house they hoped to build, their daughter, Ella, was born which made their family larger and the home they were living in seem too small.

Through the years Sarah changed her building plans a couple times making the changes she thought of until the layout of the home was exactly what her and Darrin wanted. Sarah says, “Darrin, God bless him, was so patient through it all,” adding if she asked him whether they should do this or that he always answered “whatever you want” which made the process more enjoyable.

Finally the time was right and construction began about a year ago in the fall of 2012. The Camberns’ new home was built on a nice quiet lot in Fountain, Minn. and has plenty of room for Darrin, Sarah, Riley (12), and Ella (9) with four bedrooms, two full baths, and two half baths. The family now has a 4,200 square foot home with lots of elbow room.

When walking into the Camberns’ house the first thing that stands out is the large open floor plan as the eyes are drawn up to a wall of windows letting the outside in. Attention then goes to the dramatically high ceiling in the living room featuring lightly colored wood.

If not impressed enough at first glance, one look at the kitchen is sure to change your mind. Not only is the kitchen extremely functional but is something of a masterpiece with exquisite tile, a large center island, a double oven, and lighting that casts a glow of fine taste. Sarah states that aside from having an open floor plan, she knew she wanted a very nice kitchen and what she has is a spectacular kitchen.

The years that Darrin and Sarah waited and planned to build their home they were purchasing items for the house as they found what they liked including buying some items off of the internet. The double oven in the Camberns’ kitchen was bought for the home two and a half years ago and was kept in storage until the home was constructed.
