You’ve picked out your ideal homesite, selected the perfect floor plan and elevation, and officially signed the Purchase Agreement on your new Lombardo Home. Congratulations! The next step? Choosing the options to make the home your own. Before designing a home and heading to the Design Center for your selections appointment, consider the following items and scenarios to help you choose the best options for your home.
Short-term and long-term needs
When selecting options for your new home, it’s best to plan for any family changes you will have in the future. If you have elderly parents or family members that may be moving in with you, adding a first-floor bedroom and full bath with a shower instead of a tub will save you the time and hassle of a remodeling project. If you plan to move within the next few years, consider options that would improve your home’s re-sale value, such as full ceramic bathrooms and hardwood floors.
Don’t forget about how you live outside your home! At your selections appointment, you can choose from a variety of exterior options for your home such as a BBQ prep for a natural gas grill, a covered deck or porch, additional plugs and recessed lights, a 200 AMP panel for a heated pool or hot tub, or extra space in the garage.
Take a look around your current home and notice where you have extension cords or surge strips. During your selections appointment, you can plan for all of your electrical needs with additional outlets and plugs. We will review all of the included plugs and areas where others have added outlets during your appointment, but before your appointment, consider:
