The Best Around

The numbers are in and we've compiled our list of the best selling floor plans of 2013! Here are the top 5.

5. Rockwood II collection

The Rockwood II collection is comprised of the Rockwood II plan, as well as the Rockwood II Expanded, which adds 270sf more than its predecessor. This plan includes all first floor living, with a large loft space above the garage.

4. Hudson

The Hudson floor plan is one of the largest in the Ball Homes collection, with over 3,300 sf. It features a variety of different layouts, including a first floor guest suite or sunroom, and luxury Master bath options.

3. Coventry II

The Coventry II floor plan is the #3 on our list of best selling floor plans, and for good reasons. This versatile plan offers many luxurious amenities not normally offered in a ranch plan, including an open-concept living room and kitchen, tray ceilings in the Master bedroom, and multiple Master bath options.

2. Manhattan collection

The Manhattan collection is comprised of a number of plans within the Manhattan family, like the Manhattan, Manhattan II, Manhattan Expanded and the Manhattan Expanded 3 car. As one of the most popular layouts for many years, the Manhattan collection has been a consistent favorite among clients.

1. Cavanaugh II collection

It comes as no surprise that the Cavanaugh II collection is the Number 1 best selling plan of 2013. This plan has seen it's fair share of revisions and additions, with four different elevations, a myriad of design options, and the release of the Cavanaugh II Expanded plan in 2013.
