Variations from Vendor’s samples may occur in exterior and interior finishing materials due to the normal production process. The purchaser is advised that the laundry room may be lowered to accommodate side yard drainage, in some cases, door(s) from laundry room or garage will be eliminated at Vendor’s discretion. Steps where applicable, may vary at any exterior or interior entranceway due to grading variance. Corner lots and priority lots may have special treatments which require window changes and minor interior modifications to balance and improve the elevations of the house exposed to the street. The Purchaser accepts theses changes as necessary. When selecting a house already under construction, the purchaser acknowledges that there may be minor deviations from the floor plan, elevation or layout of this model and the Purchaser agrees to accept such changes as constructed. The floor plan shall be that plan illustrated in the Vendor’s latest sales brochure for the model type selected. The purchaser acknowledges that artist’s renderings are for display purposes and may not be representative of construction details. Model homes have been decorated for public display purposes and may contain certain features, upgrade finishes and services which may not be included in the basic model type. The Purchaser acknowledges that there will be a variance in floor levels as a result of different finishing materials. Most additional features on display in the model homes are available as extras. Front elevations are modified when alternative floor plans are selected. Due to sitting, grading and paving conditions, roof lines may vary due to structural roof framing conditions, and may not be exactly as shown. The purchaser accepts that all lots have Architectural Control applied to them and exterior architectural features may be added or altered at the Vendor’s discretion to comply with Architectural Control Guidelines.

The purchaser is advised that the laundry room may be lowered to accommodate side yard drainage, in some cases, door(s) from laundry room or garage will be eliminated at Vendor’s discretion. Steps where applicable, may vary at any exterior or interior entranceway due to grading variance. Corner lots and priority lots may have special treatments which require window changes and minor interior modifications to balance and improve the elevations of the house exposed to the street. The Purchaser accepts theses changes as necessary. When selecting a house already under construction, the purchaser acknowledges that there may be minor deviations from the floor plan, elevation or layout of this model and the Purchaser agrees to accept such changes as constructed. The floor plan shall be that plan illustrated in the Vendor’s latest sales brochure for the model type selected.
