Brady and Gay Hagood both grew up in western Oklahoma; he was raised on a dairy farm and she was brought up on a working farm. So as adults, their dream was to build a home with open space, inside and out. They searched for about five years for the ideal area, before finding it on 47 acres near Edmond Road and Rockwell Avenue.
The Hagoods, who have been married for 25 years, have busy and intertwined lives: He is a doctor, and she is the office manager of his clinic, which includes three doctors — each with their own practices. “When I first started this,” she remembers, “someone asked me if, as office manager, I was going to ‘run the office,’ and I said, ‘No, my job is to make sure the office runs well.’”
The Hagoods had a few things in mind when they contacted master builder Gary Randolph to design and build their 4,723-square-foot home. They wanted a modern farmhouse with an open porch and family area. Randolph designed a large family space that incorporated the kitchen, living and dining zones. “It is a 1,200-square-foot area,” Randolph says.
