Press Release: CGU Homes to Build Second Largest Home in Collier County

October 2016 – The after photos will be worth the wait to view the second largest home in Collier County, now being built in Livingston Woods. Per the Collier County building department, the custom home being built by Naples-based Connor & Gaskins Unlimited (CGU) is almost 13,000 square feet. Built by CGU Homes, the custom home will showcase the natural beauty of stone relying on the most extensive textures and colors available today, sourced by United Materials, Inc.

Vice President of CGU Homes Jon Lawrence specializes in custom home building and works with a highly talented collection of architects, engineers and interior designers to tailor a professional project team for each home. Lawrence and CGU founders Barry Connor and Craig Gaskins have more than 50 years of combined experience as contractors, nurturing relationships with the best in the industry. For this luxury residence on 2.5 acres, CGU Homes tapped renowned local architect John Cooney and interior designer Shawn Kronen, with offices in Atlanta and Naples. Their work for private homes of celebrities and some of the world’s most distinguished clientele has been featured in Architectural Digest, Interior Design and House and Garden.

Experts in remodeling too, CGU Homes shares images of a recent renovation of a waterfront home near Vanderbilt Beach. To bring in more natural light, they removed walls to allow the kitchen to overlook a great room for entertaining and installed tile that gives the appearance of birch wood flooring. Distinctive structural columns add beauty as well as support to the upper floors. Outside, they installed new hardscaping, created a clever space configuration in the pool deck area and introduced bright modern finishes throughout to complete the rejuvenation.

Lawrence has spearheaded custom home designs and renovations in Mediterra, Port Royal, Royal Harbor, Pelican Bay, Bay Colony, Bonita Bay, Pine Ridge and the Estuary. Specialists in luxury homes, condos and commercial construction, CGU Homes has the talent and resources to create your vision. For more information, visit cguhomes.com or call (239) 260- 5068.
