I'm buying a new house and want your thoughts on which elevation model looks better.

Elevation A (Block front)




Elevation B (Stone front)

Both not my style but if I had to choose it would be the second one.

B to me

Cookie Cutter home get the one different than all the others. I would go with A.

Doesn't look like it gets a lot of natural light.....  But elevation B of the two.

Look the exact same to me, except flipped floor plan.

Do you want to drive in the garage on the right or left.

Which lot will they  build either on?

Any lot or choose your lot and pick which they'll build on there.

ETA

I like B because of the stone.

Those fake ass blocks? What is that trying g to even interpret?  

Yall got some ugly ass houses up there. No offense.  Not your fault.

Those are the same house.  I guess get whichever your neighbor doesn't have.

Neither one, Both look cheesy. I'd get a brick house instead. In fact that's what I did when I had my house built. Brick lasts a lot longer and is tougher. The only part of my house that I don't like is the bedroom wall where they didn't use brick and only put up that crappy sheet metal siding. All of the other walls are all brick.

99% of homes in Las Vegas are stucco.

A brick house would look very out of place here.  Interesting that it's an indicator of quality some places.

Neither..neighbors are to close. Why do you want people looking in your window while you are shaving in the morning..

B FOR SURE

A has those fake ass cable wannabe stone things.

Landscape B and you’ve got something.

I think the little fake band of bricks looks cheap as hell.

So this will be my lot. It will have a three car instead of a two car. I also will not have any neighbors on the right side or in the back of me. The neighbor on the left side will be 65 feet away, so I have some nice privacy considering this is a track home development. My lot size is 12,400sf . Here is a picture of the foundation. And the crazy BLM desert view of my back yard. I can go shooting within minutes. My lot # is 1547, you can see how I have some privacy.

It looks nice. Not as nice as all of the 7500 sq ft homes on a hundred acres that everyone on arfcom has, but congrats.

B those things on the corners of A are going to be styrofoam with stucco over it and sooner or later they are going to leak water in on the tops of the squares.

Yes! I voted correctly!

"B" with the gable end vents painted in contrasting color like "A".

I usually go for the stone but of the two i like the one without. I dont think the stone suits that design. I would go with a and put bushes in front of the house

If it were me....I'd go with neither and just do plain stucco.  I like the basic southwestern U.S. home style though.

x2. If I had to go with A or B...I'd go with A.  B looks like a mobile home skirt.

Here's a couple other colors and one showing what it looks like without any options

It absolutely looks better without either - like this picture you posted.


Both of the other options look like cheap add ons.

Yup. That's the look I was talking about.

If you like the looks of B...just save yourself a bunch of $$$ and go get a double-wide trailer.

Pick the one with the better lot, view, or direction based on prevailing wind and sunlight.
If all equal, B.

Plain.  Not enough stone to matter, and gives bugs a place to hide.

I agree with this. 

On another note: Those two dinky windows up front look odd to me, next to a three car garage. Proportionally, it's just weird. I hope that's not a living room?. I think I'd want a big picture window or something.

Not a big deal either way. Either are good. Which one had the better view or lot
Link Posted: 8/23/2017 7:25:35 PM EDT
[#44]
Ah, found it. Looks like those two windows up front are for two different bedrooms. Personally? I would take the office option as well:

Voted B, but the plain one you posted farther down is better. And I agree with subnet about the windows.

Good catch! Nice. I didn't even know they had that up on their website. Office option looks cool. It basically eliminates the closet and adds like 2' 4" and also adds a door.

I vote b.

Looks nice
Link Posted: 8/23/2017 10:06:18 PM EDT

I think it would look a lot better without either the POS weird ass quoining that makes absolutely no sense or the bizarre afterthought water table of stone that doesn't belong anywhere.

Is that an option?
Link Posted: 8/23/2017 10:06:30 PM EDT

I like B.


Congrats OP.

If you do the office option get them to flip that closet into that room.
