The Fairchild - Matt Hall & Son

This home is the Fairchild by Matt Hall & Sons. It's a very niced sized home at 3689 SQft with a wide main floor footprint. It has a 4 car garage and a main level Master Bedroom with sitting room. The family room sticks out the back which could be used as a sun room. It has 2 staircases going up to the 2nd level. It also has den and dining room as well. It's a 4 bedroom and 3 1/2 bathroom house. Both my wife and myself do love this home and it definitely could be a possibility when we build our home. As a guy, I love the huge 4 car garage in this floor plan. My wife loves house designs with sitting rooms attached to the Master Bedroom and with this home , she gets her wish. A very nice design that could have a great future in a finished basement too.

The Sawgrass - Deer Point Homes

Here is a mid priced home from Deer Point Homes in Zion, IL. They have 3 elevations and the one I like is letter "C". This home has 4 bedrooms with 2.5 bathrooms. The traditional layout is around 2200 sq. ft. The 4th bedroom can be changed to a loft if desired. This home also comes with a 3 car garage which is always a plus!! Again this is another home I reviewed with a Master Bedroom on the 2nd floor, but again for a moderate house, it's ok!

Please check them out at http://www.deerpointhomes.com.

The Columbia - John Wieland Homes

This lovely house is The Columbia from John Wieland Homes. It has 4-5 bedrooms with 4 Baths. I normally don't like a 2nd floor master suite, but that's more of a personal preference and with this house, I think I could live with it. I do love having a sitting room attached to the Master bedroom, esp as a getway from kids if you have them!! The square footage of this house ranges from 3425 to 4000 sq ft.

Please check out their website at: http://www.jwhomes.com

I think we wil definitely be reviewing more homes from this builder in the future.
