1,232 Sq. Ft.

28 x 62 3-Bedroom Ranch

1,736 Sq. Ft.

3-Bedrooms, 2-Baths

This home shown with front garage

and hip roof!

One of our most popular upscale 3-bedroom, 2-bath ranch homes.  This house is often referred to as our "perfect plan" as it features everything that people ask for in a new home...including a floorplan that allows for a front garage which means that although it is a larger home, it can be placed on a narrow lot.

Display Model #5

28 x 54 Ranch

1,530 Sq. Ft.

3-Bedrooms, 2-Baths

Our medium-sized, 3-bedroom ranch with a split-design for efficiency, 2-baths and front design features that give it great curb appeal.  Add a garage and you have everything an average family needs.

Display Model #6

28 x 48 Ranch w/Porch Option

1,344 Sq. Ft.

3-Bedrooms, 2-Baths

Our Design-Series Porch Ranch is a vacation-style home designed for wooded homesites or property with a view.  This is a 2-bedroom, 2-bath floorplan with a first-floor laundry area.  The porch is an integral part of the house...not just tacked on like traditional porches.  That means it is much stronger and sturdier than normal which allows us to haul it on the highway.
