For almost a decade John Sumodi, owner of Legacy Homes in Medina, has been building unique, custom-designed homes. Leading a family-owned-and-operated company, he prides himself on his capacity to see what others can’t.

The Pagoda model from Legacy Homes redefines “green building” in its truest sense by taking reclaimed wood from a 140-year-old barn and making it a work of art. The Chinese influence in this house design is apparent in the roof lines. The powder room is home to a 1,200-pound tree-trunk vanity basin complete with a copper vessel sink and gravel stone flooring.

The original barn beams used throughout the home give it a familial warmth. The spacious kitchen showcases the latest appliances and cabinets in distressed maple. Outdoors hosts an unbelievable bar area made from reclaimed wood and covered by a green-friendly metal roof that creates the ambiance of beach life. The outdoor play area swings are made from old-fashioned rope and real wood logs cut in half.

Visitors will find many other built-ins and innovative features that give the home the character and Old World charm that one only gets from taking a piece of history and bringing it into today’s home design.

Legacy Homes has built countless custom homes throughout Medina, Lorain and the southwest areas of Cuyahoga counties. If you are looking for a truly unique home-building experience but not sure where to start, Legacy Homes has the vision and creativity to help design and build your dream home for you and your family.
