MEET JACKLYN, SUBLIME HOMES' DESIGN DIRECTOR
Jacklyn knew she was destined to pursue a career in design at a very young age. It was something that she was exposed to while growing up around and being very involved in her father’s homebuilding business.
Directly out of high school, Jacklyn began working for her brother, Michael, at his first homebuilding company. During this time she grew her knowledge of the homebuilding process, but was also able to obtain her Bachelors of Fine Arts in Interior Design from the International Academy of Design and Technology. She began her professional design career in 2005 as a residential designer for various home builders in the greater Chicagoland area. Feeling the need to grow her skills even more, Jacklyn made the transition to kitchen design in 2008 when she was recruited by Christopher Peacock. At the age of 27, she relocated to San Francisco at the request of Christopher Peacock to manage their showroom in the San Francisco Design Center. During her career, Jacklyn has worked on an array of design projects in various locations throughout the United States.
In 2011, Michael and his cousin Brandon founded Sublime Homes. The motivation to provide beautiful, quality, awe-inspiring homes was always strong, but the ability to do so was truly bolstered when, in 2014, Jacklyn joined Michael and Brandon in Sublime Homes as the Design Director.
You’ve found your dream home, you’ve checked the price, it’s in the budget. You call the home builder to set an appointment, come in for the appointment only to learn that your dream home is suddenly out of reach with all the “upgrades” that you’d like to have in your new home. You ask yourself… “there has to be a better way to shop for a home and to know up front what the house is going to cost.” There are always going to be some extras, but overall—you want to know that above the price of the lot, it will cost $X price to build my dream home.
Sublime Homes has made home shopping easy in NW Indiana. Many of our homeowners will tell you that the Sublime Homes' standards are upgrades for the rest of the builders in the area.

MEET MIKE, SUBLIME HOMES' CEO & BUILDER
Almost as early as he can remember, Michael (“Mike”, “Mike the Builder”) has been in and around the construction industry. A second generation homebuilder, Mike joined his father on job sites gaining invaluable hands on experience throughout his childhood and teens.
At the early age of 21, and with only five thousand dollars to his name, Mike pursued his dream of becoming a professional homebuilder. As a sole proprietor and entrepreneur, Mike the Builder grew his first company into a multi-million dollar venture, providing quality homes to its clientele. Before the great recession of 2009, Mike had built many homes in the Chicago southland. During the first couple of years of that great recession, when almost no one was building new homes, Mike’s entrepreneurial spirit manifested various other ventures, but Mike always knew building homes was the only true venture in his heart.
In 2011, Michael and his cousin Brandon founded Sublime Homes. Through creativity and determination, Mike the Builder has emerged as one of the Nation’s bright young talents in the home building industry. Mike was recently recognized as a 2015 Professional Builder’s Magazine 40 under 40 awardee, but Mike knows the best is yet to come.
Adding a pop of color in an otherwise neutral room provides an easy transformation that is stylish and surprising. For example, we just completed a home for a client and painted the front door teal. What's great about painting is that if you get tired of the hue you can always paint it another color.
Proving the validity of 2017’s love of color was Pantone, who named Greenery the 2017 Color of the Year, moving away from 2016’s muted Rose Quarts and Serenity Colors of the Year. Like Sublime Homes, you can experiment with bold pops of color by replacing tired upholstery and accent pillows with fresh colors that liven up a room. Before taking the plunge and totally repainting a room, experiment with bold colors by painting an accent wall, door, or even the ceiling!
Do you have a favorite accent color, or have you used bold color in your own home? Post your story and pictures in the comment section below!
In January of 1801, William Henry Harrison arrived in Vincennes, the capital of the newly- established Indiana Territory to begin his duties as the Indiana territorial governor. In 1841 he was elected president. Fun Fact: He died of complications from pneumonia 31 days into his term, serving the shortest tenure in United States presidential history
In 1804, Harrison built a Georgian/plantation-style home near Vincennes that he named Grouseland. A Georgian/plantation-style home is modeled after those built across the American South prior to the Civil War. These grand homes are characterized by their proportion and balance. Square symmetrical shapes, paired chimney and the use of brick or stone as the exterior façade. Additionally, there are often stacked porches with Greek Columns. Harrison’s home has thirteen rooms and was one of the first brick structures in the territory. During his term, as territorial governor, Harrison’s home served as the center of social and political life in the territory. It also served as a fortress during times of unrest in the territory.
