Customize Any Design: Altering Square Footage

One of the most popular aspects of our floor plan gallery is the examples we show of how past clients have altered their designs. For the next few months we will be highlighting some brand new plan examples. We start with four examples of altering an original concept's size. Two illustrate how clients have reduced the overall square footage, and the following two show how additional space was added.
