February 1, 2007 – the search

We looked at a lot of houses with our realtor Robert DeNiro.  Approximately 100 (which he said is fairly normal).  He asked us to make a top 10 list of things we want in a home: 

  1. 3500+ total square feet
  2. 3 car garage
  3. Formal dining room off the kitchen
  4. Nice kitchen with plenty of storage
  5. Larger master bedroom with walk in closet, master bath with his/her sinks, shower, tub, water closet
  6. 2+ fairly good sized bedrooms for kids on the same level as master
  7. Family/TV room
  8. Heather’s office/ studio potential by a door
  9. Decent sized yard (dog run, garden, etc)
  10. Laundry/mud room by garage

So as we looked through various pre-built homes and model homes we gave it a score (scale of 1-5, 5 being the best) and a name. examples that come to mind

“The White House” – a house with white walls, floor, trim, EVERYTHING WHITE

“Small & Sunny”  – a small house with sunny yellow paint in the kitchen 

The Windsor floor plan at Creekside beat out the rest because of location, quality, and it fulfilled the top 10 list (and more!).
