Personalize your home as little or as much as you want by personalizing the interior and selecting one of four exterior facade options that range from our classic farmhouse to our ultra-modern design. Save time and money with our streamlined customization process.
Ultra Modern Facade
Pushing the boundaries of modern design, this home brings a touch of future elegance with an outer appearance that reflects the forward thinking building techniques and science that defines the home.
Modern Prairie FACADE
This state-of-the-art home has been re-invented with a Frank Lloyd Wright inspired design and meticulously engineered to blend in with established neighborhoods while making a bold statement.
Modern Farmhouse FACADE
This style is a hybrid of the classic farmhouse with a touch of modern class. Combining the best elements of the old with the new, this style of home is a perfect balance of the old with the new.
Classic Farmhouse FACADE
This home is a throwback to the classic farmhouse style of the 1900’s. More practical than ornate, this modern recreation of an American classic is a great compliment to the innovation and technology that lies inside its walls..
