The Ravenna

Here is the link to the Ravenna:

Ravenna - Floor plans & tour

It gives you a good idea of the layout of our house.  However, it also includes a lot of features that ours will not have such as the Bonus Room, brick exterior, hardwoods, etc.  We did add quite a few updates including (but not limited to):

-Morning Room
-Gourmet Kitchen
-Upgraded carpet and carpet pad throughout
-Tankless water heater
-Upgraded kitchen cabinets
-Upgraded master bath w/ ceramic surround
-Premium lot
-Recessed lighting in kitchen and family room
-Gas fireplace
-3-piece bathroom rough-in in basement

The main things we held off on initially that we'll do later are hardwoods on the first floor in the kitchen/morning room/ hallway area and finishing the basement.

More to come, including pictures...


  1. Welcome to the world of Ryan Homes blogging and congrats on deciding to build a new home and most of all congrats on selling your house in 4 days...that is awesome!!! Did you upgrade to the Gourmet Kitchen or the Gourmet Island? We thought about the tankless water heater but went with a custom upgrade to a Hybrid Water Heater instead. You can find us here:

  2. Welcome to our little blogging world! Congratulations on your house. I really love the Ravenna. It wasn't offered in our plan. It seems like we did many of the same upgrades and left some of the same off, like the hardwood floors. Congrats on selling your home so quickly. I look forward to watching your progress.

  3. Did you have your pre-construction meeting yet? We might be closing around the same time.

    Although Ravenna wasn't offered in our plan I still thought about trying to get it, lol. Gotta love that second floor laundry. We couldn't get the 3 car garage on it :-(

    And lastly I added your blog to my blog list. Welcome.

  4. Congrats! I also will welcome you :) Can't wait to see your progress!

  5. Congrats on your Ryan home building process! We closed on our Zachary model almost a month and a half ago and it was a wondeful process from start to finish! Looking forward to following your progress and I'm adding your blog to my blog list. :)

  6. Thanks for the kind words all...

    @BD-good question, there is only one upgrade option with the kitchen and it includes the gourmet island, breakfast bar, looks just like the opt. upgraded kitchen portion of the floorplan included in this post.

    @2011-You have the Victoria Falls blog, right? I bookmarked you a while ago. I was intrigued since you broke ground a day before us so should be interesting to see who finishes first. Our PM is targeting 5/4 right now, although it's certainly not set in stone.

    Thanks again to all and I'll be sure to add your blogs to my list. I didn't realize there was a small cult forming here!

  7. I think you are going to love your new home. We are going to close on our Ravenna tomorrow morning. It happens fast once they start digging, so start packing your duds now. :)
