Why? Why? Why?

Why we are moving

My wife, son, and I currently live in an eleven hundred square foot ranch home and the walls have been closing in since his arrival.  Now that we are expecting our second child it’s time to move. 

Why Ryan Homes

We started off by looking at existing homes in the fall of last year.  On our list of must haves was an updated kitchen, open floor plan, four bedrooms, a laundry room on the first or second floor, and a good school district.  All of the houses we found in our price range would require a kitchen remodel, didn’t have four bedrooms, or were not in a good school district.

So we started looking at new construction in areas with good school districts.  The only builder in these areas that was in our price range and met all of our requirements was Ryan Homes.   An additional bonus was that Ryan Homes are Energy Star certified and the development we are building in has dedicated green space behind our lot. 

Why we chose the Venice

The first time we walked into the Venice we knew it was our future home.  The first floor has everything we were looking for.  It has an open floor plan between the kitchen and family room.  The gourmet island in the kitchen gives you a lot of extra counter space and additional storage.  The optional morning room gives you a dining area right off the kitchen.  There is a mudroom off the garage; something you need in upstate New York.

The second floor has four large bedrooms; this gives us an extra bedroom for guests or office space or both.   There is also a spacious laundry room upstairs; no more trips to the basement!  The walk-in closet in the master bedroom is huge, plenty of space for all of our clothing.
