  1. We signed our Purchase Agreement to build a Rome on March 8, 2014. It's exciting to find a blogger building a Rome this year. All the other Rome blogs are from last year or before.

    Looking forward to following your journey! I pray all goes well for you & your family.

  2. Hi Jessica: Congratulations on your Rome! It's pretty exciting huh. Feel free to message me anytime. Which elevation are you building?

  3. We're building Elevation E, Jennifer. We broke ground on April 21st :-)

  4. Congratulations Jessica!! So exciting! If you read my post early on, we wanted Elevation E and had initially picked it. However, after we thought about it, being that we were trying to keep our cost down and then fact that we would never ever sit on that beautiful porch - we decided to go with Elevation C, our initial choice. But I love love love Elevation E. Lucky you!

  5. Jessica - do you have a Blog - I clicked on someone elses blog and thought it was your LOL! Sorry - ignore my last message - I deleted it.

  6. Jessica.In uyour master bedroom you selected a fiberglass shower instead of tile? Im asking because Im getting a Rome built also,and my realtor suggested that I do so(fiberglass instead of tile)
