Options = $$$

Notice how all signs for new home construction say "Starting at..."?  This is because you can add on all kinds of options to your house.  The model homes they walk you through all have tons of options added to make you say "ooh" and "aah".  But options can add up really quick.

Now, I'm a very "Left-brain" kind of person and try not to get blind-sided.  So I did my homework; I checked the county auditor's website to get a better feel for what other people's final home sales were.  That way, I could better gauge of what the final price would be for us and see if we could afford it.

When it was all said and done, here where the options we added:
  • Elevation C Partial Stone Veneer Front
  • 3 piece Plumbing Rough-in, Basement
  • 2 Car Side Load Garage
  • Carpet/Flooring Upgrade
  • Windows, Living Room Side
  • Windows, Family Room Side
  • Morning Room
  • Kitchen Gourmet Island
  • Kitchen Cabinet Upgrade
  • Kitchen Hardware
  • Laminate Countertop Upgrade
  • Appliance Package Stainless Steel (Stove, Dishwasher, Built-in Microwave)
  • Owners Bath Type A with Shower
  • Bedroom, First Floor
  • Windows, Bedroom Side
  • Double Bowl Vanity, Bathroom
  • First Floor Bathroom, Type A with Shower
  • Ceiling Fan Prewire (6)
  • Extra Garage Electrical Outlet
  • Laundry Tub (includes plumbing)
Our finished home will look something like this:

I am not going to post pictures of the Ravenna model, since our home may not look exactly like that.  But, I will post a link to the Ryan Homes website where they have lots of photos and even a video.
