Our Ravenna Elevation-Almost

This is the Ravenna Elevation C -partial stone.  This is not our exact house but close. 
We have selected the Elevation B partial stone.  I could not, for the life of me, find a picture of Elevation B so this will have to do. Elevation B gives you a little roof over the front door with pillars.  I would have loved the porch but I already have to sell a kidney to afford this house.  So no porch for me LOL.  Also, we will have a front entry garage.  
I love the look of this house!  I also love the stone.  They just started offering stone in the Pittsburgh area and I am very excited.  We will be one of the first houses in our neighborhood with a stone front. 

Our colors are:
stone:Bucks County
siding: Stone Mountain Clay
Shutters: Brown
Door: Brown (there is a fancy name for it but I don't remember it. ) 
For some reason, I have no pictures of the stone or siding choices??? hmmm not sure why .  I could have sworn I took them. 

Funny story about the stone and siding choices-  We originally had picked stone color=Aspen and siding color Autumn beige.  I was a little concerned about them because there was a slight orangey hue to both.  My husband and I are sensitive to beige color choices because we always seem to pick out a "beige" in paint or whatever it may be...and then we get it on the wall and it is PINK.  We painted our entire basement family room in a  beige color-and it was baby aspirin pink.  We had to re-do the entire room.  
So after picking these colors, I saw someone's Ryan blog & they had been substituted Autum Beige siding (their original color was discontinued) and the siding looked PINK!!  Thank God I saw that blog post and we were still in our 2 week change period. If I had ended up with a PINK house I would have been devastated.   Why we always initially lean towards those pinky beiges is beyond me.  Thank you to the blogger who posted their PINK siding.  You saved me from a possible disaster!


  1. Congratulations on your new home! I hope you get to fall in love with every inch of it!

    I wanted a full front porch, too. I just couldn't handle the fact that they wouldn't do a full front porch and the way the covered porch changed the roof lines. So we took the elevation A. I hope to get to put a porch on the front later.

  2. We also initially selected Autumn Beige, but after seeing it on some houses, we changed our selections. We now have the same color choices as you except that our front door will be Fine Wine. The name for your door is Black Bean. It was the color we were going to have with our Autumn Beige. Congratulations and good luck with your build!

  3. Girls Girls, we cant thank enough the blogger who posted the Pink siding!!

    I also have picked the Mountain Clay siding......will that have pink huges??? I hope worried now......also my door is Black Bean and brick is La Cava....
