I have been poring over other blogs of people building the Ravenna model.  We originally we going to build Elevation C, but since we weren't adding the bonus room over the garage, we weren't going to get the gable over the garage.  Also, I found out we wouldn't be getting the upgraded carriage style garage door, which kind of bummed me out.  So, we made the switch to Elevation M.

First off, our house will be a side garage with the floor plan flipped.
The difference between the elevations is the included gable, the upgraded garage door, a 2' extension in Bedroom 3, and the additional exterior touches.  With elevation M, one of the "craftsman elevations", you get a metal roof over the porch, shaker siding for part of the face, and additional architectural detail at the porch and gables.  These all gave the house more character.

Other changes we made are removing the Laundry tub, the double vanity bath in the upstairs second bathroom, and removing the owner's bath upgrade.  This still keeps us within the FHA spending limits.
