For the Love of Model Homes

Don't you just love model homes?  They are perfectly decorated and have all the upgrades that one can imagine. As a little girl, I loved doll houses, so going through a model home is like viewing a real life doll house.  Anyway, I don't have any specific updates on our real house (still waiting on NVR for the loan approval) but I figured I would share some pictures from the Savoy Model and the newest fleet of Ryan Homes, the Palermo. We were deciding between both homes, but I think we made the right choice for us with the Savoy.  The Palermo, although nice, seemed less open and even though the square footage was larger than the Savoy, the layout stated otherwise.  One of the things that I thought was cool in the Palermo was the  basement; it's decked out with my Alma Mater, University of Maryland…go Terps!

So, enjoy viewing the pictures...

  1. I love models, they suck you in and get your hopes up...but they also give you ideas on what you can do with your home. Unfortunately the nearest model for the townhome I chose is 3 hrs away...the model here won't be done until July sometime.

  2. I am building the Palermo model in Ohio the Savoy is not a option in my community but, I like that model also
