We recently purchased a piece of property in Cannon’s Gate. Would like to see some of your home designs there. We live in Raleigh. Have just put our home in Brandywine Bay on the market and will begin to build once we do sell it.

Do you have pictures of exiting homes there and maybe some house plans?
