OUR PROCESS

1
SELECT A FLOORPLAN & HOMESITE
Our communities offer a variety of floorplans from which to choose. Let one of our knowledgeable Sale Representatives help you find the perfect floorplan for your lifestyle. Next, put down a deposit to reserve the specific homesite to compliment that floorplan. Oh, and look forward to personalizing your new home! Visit a Selection Gallery Open House to get your creative juices flowing.
