Once we had the builder picked out, then we picked our model. Even though ANV has a huge list to choose from, this step was surprisingly easy for us. We wanted a two-story family room, 4 bedrooms, and a master on the 2nd floor. We looked for the cheapest model that met those criteria, and that one looked perfect for us. And the winner was.... the Virginia #278!
(Although this pic isn't a good representation of what ours will look like. And remember the price is just for the house, not the land - there are no deals that good in the DC metro area!)
