Each of the floor plans can be built with an exterior dimension of 20 by 36 feet or 20 by 38 feet. Buyers can also choose to have three bedrooms or two master suites.

The Jaclyn Alexis home is entered via the lower level, which has a foyer, coat closet, utility room and one-car garage. A 15-by-15-foot family room is optional.

The second floor has a powder room, 20-by-11-foot living room, 14-by-10-foot dining room, 9-by-7-foot breakfast area and U-shaped kitchen with pantry.

In the two-bedroom layout, each master suite has a walk-in closet, full shower bath and at least 182 square feet of bedroom.
