September is here! With Labor Day quickly approaching and school already back in session, many families may feel that their current home just isn’t big enough to accommodate all of the activity that’s taking place. With this in mind, we thought it would be the perfect time to highlight one of our most popular (and space-smart!) floor plans: the Moondance.

Located in our family-friendly and community-oriented neighborhood of Annafeld, the Moondance embodies everything we love about Montana and the U.S. as a whole. Read on to learn more about what this original home design of ours has to offer, or get a better idea of what you can customize by exploring our online home builder. Be sure to contact our team at McCall Homes for more information if you’re currently seeking a residential property in the Billings area.

The Story Behind The Home Design

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, And 1408 Square Feet Of Home-Sweet-Home

The Moondance was conceptualized and constructed with balance in mind — not too large but not too small, this home build is the ideal single-level home for couples and multi-child families alike. Whether it’s your first home or you’re downsizing from a larger unit, you’ll never feel cramped in this open concept abode, which is filled with just-right levels of natural light.

The Moondance home design can be adjusted to accommodate more or fewer residents depending on your personal needs, leaving you with options such as adding an extra bedroom or two and a rec area in a finished or unfinished basement. Want a lofty feeling—you can vault the ceiling in the living room. The joy of building, is choosing a plan that suits your needs and personalizing it to make it really feel like home for your personality and lifestyle.

In the front of this home layout, you’ll find two bedrooms flanking the main bath. On the opposite end of the floor plan, near the rear of the home, you (or two!) can enjoy the luxurious Master bedroom. Offering greater privacy as well as greater floor space, anyone could feel a little bit like royalty in this home — without spending like a king.

Whether you’re just getting started with married life or you have a few kids in tow already, our Moondance floor plan will make you feel right at home the moment you move to our community-centric and values-driven Annafeld neighborhood.

Vault the living room and add a fireplace with shiplap to create a lofty feel.

Smart Spaces: Maximize Use Of Every Room

With three bedrooms under its sturdy roof, the Moondance can accommodate small and large families alike. Every bedroom — including the spacious Master — features 100% Nylon (i.e. stain resistant) Shaw carpet or explore our many hard surface options if you’d like. Plenty of light is sure to filter into each room regardless of the direction it faces, thanks to the installation of large-scale energy-efficient Andersen windows. The bathrooms get endless hot water thanks to the included Navian tankless water heater and get the “bold look of” Kohler plumbing fixtures.

In addition to being able to personalize the features of this home, the Moondance affords residents a tremendous amount of square footage to create areas for both recreational and social activities. We’ve designed these open concept areas as what we call “smart spaces,” meaning they’re easy to optimize for storage while maintaining every bit of their function! McCall Homes’ smart spaces can be customized with built-in additions such as wine bars, coffee stations, desk and office niches — you name it!

If you’re in need of extra space for your vehicles or for general storage, we offer several different sizes of garage capacities and options to upgrade from a 2-car to a 3-car design. There’s no idea too large to overwhelm this model. And even in the heat of a true Montana Indian summer, the living room will never be too cold or too hot thanks to an Owens Corning Comfort Built insulation package, paired with an adjustable and programmable thermostat. 

This “smart space” in the back hallway is the ideal spot for a bench and hooks to stash shoes, bags, and coats.

Kitchen & Dining Features

The kitchen is the hearth of the home, and we’ve spared no shortage of amenities to complement the cooking and dining experience you’ll get with the Moondance floor plan. The kitchen in our Moondance floor plan is conveniently and centrally located with easy access to both the walk-in pantry and the laundry room. Speaking of laundry — all appliances in this home are Whirlpool EnergyStar products, which are not only renowned for their energy efficiency but also for their aesthetic appeal and durability. 

If you’re into the latest technology, you can choose a SmartHome package with features such as USB outlets, WiFi ready theromstats, garage door openers, and entry door keypads. Even a simple supplement like a ceiling fan or an addition such as a screened-in porch can go a long way in enhancing the overall comfort of you, your family, and any guests you may have over to visit.

Optimal Outdoor Living Areas

As much as we love showing home buyers in Billings the interior amenities of the Moondance, we take great joy in sharing the outdoor living areas too! The Moondance floor plan includes an outdoor patio with plenty of space, as well as the option to add a screened-in porch! 

Beyond the patio where you share as many meals as memories, you’ll be perfectly equipped to maintain the lawn and garden of your landscaping dreams all around the perimeter of the property. The Moondance comes with full landscaping already installed (in summer months but always included), and it’s easy and cost-effective to maintain the aesthetics of a manicured lawn with the help of underground sprinklers from our partners at RainBird systems. Their sprinkler heads come with WiFi-connected “smart” irrigation timers, so you never have to worry about overwatering or underwatering your yard — or overspending on utilities bills.

Here’s an example of an outdoor space that remains private yet connected to the yard and just off the screened porch.
