Our builder showed us how we could make our home into
a true vacation getaway. We don’t even have to leave our driveway
to be pampered like we’re at the finest spa. And it doesn’t stop there
– our floorplan is perfect for entertaining, and we’ve got plenty
of room for the kids to visit. Plus, we’re not wasting any extra time
on exterior maintenance. We love all the amenities in our new home
but it still catches us offguard sometimes – we’re always looking
for the mints on the pillow.
