Ok, you’ve got a very important choice in front of you. Choosing the floor plan is arguably the most important choice of all. And you’re being asked to choose without knowing much about the location or the lot it will be on. Hmmm. (Commence head scratching.)
A couple of things to consider… (in addition to all the things you are already considering.)
1. Which floor plan will be the most versatile on any type of lot? In any orientation?
2. When considering a floor plan, don’t forget to consider the ambiance or “feeling” that will be created by the layout and flow of rooms. Because at the end of the day, even if you’ve got a room for every need and desire, it won’t matter much if the place feels tight, dark or cramped.
Echoing Ron, please do tell us why you like the floor plan you like. You may have thought of something that someone else didn’t think of, and sway other voters in your direction…and that is precisely the beauty of this model.
That being said, I would like to put in a plug for Smokyview. Honk if you love open floor plans!! This is the queen of light and space. I am also a fan of how the porch and windows are integrated so that from outside, to inside, to outside again it’s almost one continuous space. Plus, of the 3, I think it will offer the best views of the surrounding landscape. For those of you who may be inclined to think that it’s not cozy, I beg to differ. To me the very definition of cozy is being safe and warm and well fed by the fire, while the great outdoors does its thing (you know, rain, snow, wind, stars, flowers blooming, leaves turning…etc.) I think in the Smokyview plan you will be able to feel like you are a part of the surroundings, while still being nestled comfortably in your home.
That’s my $0.02. Thanks for listening. Now get out there and vote! (And don’t forget to vote once each day until 5 p.m. EST on Tuesday.)
