Me in a snapshot: Married, kids, originally from MA, I've been living in NC since 2000.
So how did we decide on the Verona? Bedrooms. We need a shit-ton of them. And an office. And a play room. And a man cave. In a nutshell, we started off looking online for existing homes, but we quickly found that in our market (Charlotte) it's virtually impossible to find a house that has enough room, on a decent lot, in a decent part of town, in our price range. So then we started looking at new construction, and we started getting closer, but no cigar. Then we saw the model version of the Rome. We fell in love with it almost instantly, but we didn't like the neighborhood or the lots.
Then we found another neighborhood with much better lots and we saw their model, which is the Verona. It also has a basement or attic option, which made it a perfect fit for us.
Okay, on a quick side note, I'm currently typing this while sitting on the couch watching Island Hunters on HGTV with my wife, and these assholes are buying an island. Literally, a f@cking island. Like, an island that is about an acre or two, and there is exactly one house on it. I need a beer…
Anyway, we were able to take advantage of some great year-end incentives from RH, and got the morning room for free, along with $16k off the price of the Verona. We got a great lot (.31 acres) and it's in a great location. So on new years eve we signed our lives away. Yay!
