Decisions, decisions...

When we signed our purchase agreement, there were a lot of options available to us. To ensure we got what we wanted without going over our budget, we went with the following options:

Elevation C with partial stone, winestone shutters and island pearl siding
Cherry hardwood in foyer, hall, dining room kitchen, powder room and morning room
Finished basement with 3 piece rough-in for bath, welled exit
Ceiling fan rough-ins for bedrooms, morning room and family room
Fireplace in family room
Recessed lighting in kitchen
Gourmet island in kitchen, stainless appliances, cherry bordeaux cabinets with butterum granite countertops
Upgraded owner's bath #2, double vanity, ceramic tile

We were surprised to find out that in our particular community the Rome model comes with a porch. Since I haven't seen photos of one with it, it will be interesting to see what comes from it. I orginally had another color on the countertops, but was able to change them since Ryan Homes allows you to make changes within the first two weeks.

A lot of the appointments should begin soon, I will post additional pictures when they break ground.


  1. Yea! I am so excited to see how your porch turns out... I would like to add one to my house down the road! :)

  2. I'm excited too! I will definitely post pictures as it comes along :)

  3. Timika, the porch looks gorgeous on the Rome! I am sure you are going to love it. I wish we could have that option, it gives the house more character. I saw a picture of it and it may be on KevinC's blog. I think! June 4th is right around the corner--Happy Building!!!

  4. Building our RH. What stone is that you selected? Thanks!

    1. Hello,

      The stone color is Bucks County. Hope this helps!

    2. Thanks Timika. I read that after I commented. Darn. It's not available in our community. I'm asking for it though. I'm seeing it on so many blogs and not sure why it's not offered in my community. Thank you!
