A lovely place to land

Written by: Sarah J. Dills / Photos by: Peter Neff

When your job pulls you away from home multiple days a week, it not only dictates your schedule but it causes you to think differently about the design of your home. For flight attendant Jimmy Mitcheson, and Alan West, who also is out of town weekly for work, their travel dictated everything from meetings with their builders, Michael Ruefle Jr. and Colleen Ruefle-Haley of Suncrest Homes, to the design of their massive laundry room.  

But more than anything, Jimmy and Alan wanted a place to come home to … a house with a view.
