- Large and/or specialty windows for plenty of natural light
Looking for an open concept floor plan?
"Open floor plans" can mean different things to different homebuyers. Usually it's a home with fewer "formal" spaces and walls. Rather than a formal dining room, an informal dining room may be found off the kitchen. A first floor office may be essential, but most of the family's time is likely to be spent in the Great Room, which may or may not have a high or vaulted ceiling.
If you don't see an open floor plan that meets your needs, let us know, and we'll help you find or design the perfect floor plan.
