Final changes

So we made a trip over to the Model to finalize our selections. We have added and removed things since the initial agreement day. I am going to list our original selections and then the changes. The next post will have pictures, I think.


Model - Venice, elevation K, with basement and Morning room, 12x14 deck of Morning room and 12x14 patio off basement.
Exterior colors - Island Pearl siding, Pebble Clay shakes, Blackwatch green shutters, Fiery Brown front door, white trim.
Kitchen- Gourmet island, Level 2 Giallo Napoleano granite, Wyoming Cherry Bordeaux cabinets, stainless appliances with a gas stove.
Flooring -  kitchen, morning room, powder room, and foyer will be hardwood. Carpet in the family room, living room, basement, stairs and bedrooms. Laundry room is vinyl. Bathrooms are tile. 
Basement - The basement will be finished except for the additional space created from adding the Morning room, that area will be separated by a wall and will be unfinished. We also opted for a 3 piece rough in for the bathroom basement. Window added into the basement as well.
Secondary bath - Level A tile for floor and surround; base cabinets and vanity- Fairfield maple spice and white cultured marble.
Master bath - Optional layout for the shower which includes the seat and the glass enclosure, Level C tile for the floor and surround, maple hazelnut cabinet, tan brown granite vanity.


Exterior colors - Pebble clay siding, Sandy Tan Shakes, dark berry shutters, black fox front door, also added Kentucky stone accent, white trim.
Kitchen - Level 1 St. Cecilia granite, Maple Hazelnut cabinets, electric stove.
Secondary bath - Maple honey cabinet ( This is the new base, it was maple spice, but I like the honey better so I am changing this if they ok it on Monday)
Master bath - Maple honey cabinet, white cultured marble vanity.
Flooring - Upgraded to Level B hardwood and carpet.

I would have loved to keep all the upgrades that I originally listed, but we had to cut a few things so we could add things that we really wanted. Still happy :)


  1. Just found your blog. I love how exciting it is to follow the build of other bloggers. We are building a Rome in N.VA. If you want to follow along.

    Can't wait to see your house come to life.

  2. I'm jealous of the maple hazelnut!! In our community is maple butterscotch and that's what we got but I asked to get the hazelnut and they wouldn't allow it. :(

    1. They made the Maple Hazelnut an option like 2 days before our final selection meeting, but I went on the Timberlake cabinet website and wanted them before I even knew they were available. I was willing to pay extra and also willing to argue with my husband. I'm glad it all worked out. I like the Butterscotch too and would've gotten them if the others wouldn't have been a possibility.
