Layout, Selections, and Upgrades

Exterior Style and Colors

Every home in our neighborhood has a 'cottage style'.  Below is a picture of a house in our new neighborhood that is the same model as ours and has close to the same exterior colors.  Everything is pretty much the same except our siding color is lighter.

Stone: Bucks County Ledgestone
Shaker: Canyon
Siding: Sandy Tan
Trim/Garage Door: Almond
Shutters/Front Door: Black


Structurally, we made a few changes to the 'Florence' layout.  Here a few things we added/changed:

morning room
gourmet island (really a peninsula)
stone fireplace (side)
walkout basement
basement 1/2 bath rough in
changed small square inoperable window in master bath to a small, operable, mini-window (we had to get special request for this change as this is not offered as a normal upgrade/change)
additional side window in master bedroom


Hardwood Flooring in Foyer, Powder Room, Kitchen, and Morning Room
Level 2 carpet throughout whole house
Level 2 carpet pad throughout whole house
Wood stained railing and white spindle downstairs and throughout upstairs

Love your choices! We have similar taste. We have the same cabinets, counters and stone for the fireplace. Our laundry room is the same vinyl flooring, too. Good luck with your build :)

Great selections! We're building a florence too :) It looks like all of your outside colors are the same as ours.. except the stone. Do you have elevation L? We had that elevation originally, but we downgraded to elevation K (with brick instead of stone) so we could afford to add on the morning room. We selected Canyon, Sandy Tan, Almond trim and a black front door as well.
