An Oldie, but Goodie – The Alessandria

The Alessandria is not our newest option – but it is a fan favorite. We have tweaked this plan here and there over the years but one constant remains – our homeowners love it.

We have a move in ready option for you to tour in Farmington subdivision off exit 8/Rossview Road in Clarksville, Tennessee.

Here is a quick break down of what you will find waiting inside:

– The trademark of the Alessandria – the “arched” bridge doorway leading from the foyer to the Great Room. One feature has stayed the same; the striking entryway staircase with bridge overlook and archway that leads to the living area of the home.

– The formal dining area of the home is just off the foyer. While its own separate room it is open to the Kitchen and entryway allowing for a spacious yet intimate dining space. This particular home also features a coffered ceiling and oversized chandelier.

– Another great feature of the Alessandria is the openness of the main living areas of the home. The Great Room, Kitchen and Eat in Nook all flow together creating a desirable open layout to enjoy when entertaining and simply for everyday living.

– The Alessandria is a “Master on the Main” floorplan. The Master suite includes a lavish bathroom and walk in closet. Along with the Master suite, there is also another bedroom on the main level – perfectly located to serve as a guest bedroom.

– Upstairs you will find the other 2 Bedrooms, a full bathroom plus Bonus Room. The Bonus Room features double doors and a large closet which means it could easily serve as another bedroom for large families.

– The icing on this classic cake is the covered porch for easy outdoor living. Like what you see? You’re just a few clicks away from all the details and even more pictures. LOVE what you see? Be sure to stop in or give us a call to view this one for yourself!

Tips & Tricks for your Homebuilding Journey

Creating a home is more than building 3 bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms. Creating a new home is a journey of discovering who you are, what you want, how you want to live and where you want to be. The best way to achieve the finished home of your dreams is to plan, plan, and plan some more then sprinkle in a little patience.

Here are a few more tried and true steps to consider when approaching a new home build.

1. Set goals. Creating a new home for yourself is all about setting goals and taking the steps to achieve those goals. How do you know your goals? Ask yourself a few questions.

• What do you want to achieve? 
• Where do you want to be?
• What will this cost?
• Can it really be achieved? 
• Does plan A make sense? 
• What’s plan B?

2. Establish a budget. When making your budget, of course you’ll begin with what you can afford, and how the cost of your house fits in with your overall plans for the future. When you’re ready to get down to details, include everything that will go into the project.

3. Find some land Where do you want to be? How do you want to live? What are you looking for?

4. Assemble a team. A builder is going to be your most important team members. These people will act as a guide, therapist, advocate, and counselor throughout the journey that creating your home is.

5. Plan Know the importance of planning the project in detail before starting to build. Moving walls on paper is a whole lot cheaper than moving walls after they’re built. So plan. Draw it out. Then sit with it a bit to be sure you’ve made the plan that meets your needs.

6. Sprinkle yourself with patience. Simply said, stuff happens. That’s a given. How you and your team react to these hiccups will be important. Our advice is to stay calm, keep your sense of humor and work with your team to address the issue. This is where having the right team in place can pay dividends.
