As a followup to my previous post, I also created a more traditional exterior to go with the floor plan for my better house of the year project. Below is that outcome.

Like the modern version, the traditional house has 3 bedrooms and 2 baths with a vast array of options and price points. I opted to use more expensive materials for this house, so the likely cost would be higher then the $219,900 base price of the modern house. Below is a list of the standard features with an additional list of options. The renderings shown reflect the house with all the options included.
