Foundation Height | Choose how tall your basement ceiling height will be. 9' is included as standard and is more than sufficient for most, but if you want more ceiling clearance and more room to hide mechanical and utility equipment, then you would want to go with a 10' height.

Walkout Basement | Determined by the layout of your lot, this is usually utilized when someone is planning to finish their basement, this option gives a lot of versatility to your basement by providing access directly to your yard.

Location Of Basement Windows | Determined by your lot and house plan.

Hose Bibs & Locations | Think about the location of your two standard hose spigots. Try to make them convenient, but still somewhat hidden. Typically you will want one near your driveway, as well as one that is convenient for use in your back yard.



Floors | You have the option to choose 2 1/2" Oak Wood Floors or Tile in certain rooms. This is personal preference, but some people find that tile can be slightly more durable in heavily trafficked areas such as mudrooms and kitchens, but we have found that hardwood floors hold up very well. You will choose the actual tile or wood stain/finish later in this process.



Shingles | In our homes, we use Timberline Natural Shadow Roof Shingles that have a lifetime warranty. They are not only incredibly important for the waterproofing of the home, but they also contribute greatly to the overall look of the home.
