What Type of Secondary Baths Do You Want?


This may seem like an obvious choice, but we have learned from past home buyers that there are some less obvious things to consider.  

This is usually floor plan specific and not something you can add or modify.  

You can, however, on most plans upgrade the number of sinks or add a walk-in only shower in lieu of a tub.  

Typically design #1 is the standard option for most plans.  There are more options than are shown here, too, so if you have a specific need, please ask the onsite agent or online chat for what plans offer what you want at the community(s) you prefer.
