Have you ever tried to imagine a spaceship, exotic car or any great idea in 3D when all you have to go on are a word description (think math word problems) or a sketch?
Basically, we’re taking the renderings from the architect’s plan and picturing this as our house, then picking out the details, then it gets built and then we live in it, for many, many, many years to come.
This is the same craziness we had to use to decide whether or not we were willing to invest in our concept home. It’s tough and gets tougher with the more decisions you must make. Get ready for your mind to spin…
Do you want a 2 or a 3 story? Which one of the 8 floor plans fits you best? Do you want the master upstairs or downstairs together with the kitchen? Do you want an exterior lot or more expensive interior lot?
There is no driveway so, where do friends park? Which direction do you want your home to face?
We had no idea what the homes would look like even after hours of online researching and going to most of the Britton Homes’ new build communities to “get a feel” for how they would even build the Villas at Legacy West homes. All we can say, is there were many pluses and minuses but in the end, the pluses won out!
Our final decision was to go with a 3 story home. The first-floor family kitchen-dining combo and a second-floor master/game room with 2 bedrooms and a third-floor loft/bedroom and balcony with fireplace which overlooks Communications Drive and across the street is Legacy Hall and all the eateries. (yeah, a private balcony off a third story bedroom loft with the smell of incredible food in the air and the view of a penthouse…we’re excited too!)
Now, don’t get us wrong, we McCoys area thankful and happy that we’re in a place to build this beautiful home and these decisions were really fun ones to make. We also felt our decision to build this concept home would best fit our lifestyle now and in the future.
But admit it..your mind spun a little too with all the decisions we had to make. Stay tuned though, because these were just the EXTERIOR decisions…just wait till we get to the interior ones (tile, flooring, wall colors selections)!
