  • Do you have homes with porches?

    Yes, many of our homes include options for a variety of different porch styles, including front porches, wraparound porches and back porches. You may also be able to add a porch, patio or carport to the design of your home or once your home is complete.

  • Do you have homes with garages?

    Yes, we do offer garage options for specific homes. If you would like to add a garage to your home, it will need to be added to the design before your home is built. You and your home consultant will also need to check with the local building department or permitting office to understand all local codes and building regulations. You can also consider adding a detached garage once your home is built. Check with your home center to see if they offer detached garage options.
