  1. Love your selections! We also are getting Stone Mountain Clay siding and Bucks County stone. Can't wait to see it all put together :)

    1. Thanks - I am hoping it works...I feel like I picked all of this stuff in seconds.

  2. I love the cottage elevation and all of your selections! Stone Mountain Clay is a very popular siding choice among the blogs. Your ideas for the kitchen sound amazing!

  3. What does the upgraded landscaping include? All we get is sod!

    1. Hi,
      Sorry for not answering sooner, to be honest I wasnt sure :) So I asked at our pre-construction meeting and it just means a seeded lawn (not sod) + additional shrubs in the flower beds and 2 trees. One at the street and one at the corner of the house. Hope that helps!

    2. We didn't even ask if we had the option for landscaping. I was shocked when she told me they just sod right up to the house. I would assume by my reaction that she would have told me if they had a landscaping package. Oh well, we will just hire someone else to do it. It's RH's loss.
