marc and i are firm believers in seeing as many reference homes as possible to get an idea of what we've gotten ourselves into with this build thing and with this builder.
and yet again, we're fully satisfied with our choice.
we wanted to see this one because 1. its size is roughly the same as ours, 2. its pricepoint is in the ballpark of ours, and 3. the style seemed to be more in our vein than some others we'd seen recently. all good reasons, we thought.
immediately upon entering, we saw several things that look like options we've spec'ed out:
square posts on the stairway: check.
white enameled trim: check.
front door painted black: check.
then we looked at the kitchen, and found more similaries:
it all looked pretty.
then we went into the little nook shown above, with the work station. there was an interesting window above it that appeared to look out upon nothing ...
that window looks down on something in the basement that is very special, indeed. something that had both of my boys saying, "waaaannnnttttt!!!!!"
a sport court.
standard boy room, girl room, spare room, and bathrooms ...
we decided we like ours better.
and ours will be amazing.
or so we think.
right now, it just looks like this:
