The spacious, yet practical Cavanaugh II plan has been a favorite among homebuyers since it was introduced into the Ball Homes collection several years ago. Taking the favorite features from that plan and adding some new design structures and options, we're now introducing the Cavanaugh II Expanded plan to our Villa Collection. This plan includes some nice updates, like a upscale butler's pantry, a drop zone option for more storage and a quiet study.
The Cavanaugh II Expanded adds 45 square feet of living space to the already roomy 3,262 square feet of living space in the Cavanaugh II plan, and several enhanced plan features.
This plan offers an redesigned kitchen layout with a butler's pantry and a large walk-in kitchen pantry, and a wider dining room. A more defined study with double doors replaces the formal living room in the original plan, and the relocated breakfast area is more clearly separated from the family room. The entry from garage to house is reconfigured to include the optional drop zone, and a tool area in the garage, while the powder room entry is relocated to the entrance hallway.
Like the Cavanaugh II, this plan includes nine-foot ceilings on the first floor, and four bedrooms and a large loft, which can also be configured as a fifth bedroom. The huge master bedroom with double tray ceiling opens to a master bath with dual vanities, a linen closet, garden tub and separate shower, and a commode enclosure. Additional luxury bath options and decorative window options are also available. The oversized wrap-around master closet has a direct door to the utility room, which is located upstairs for convenience, and features a folding counter. Four front elevations are also available.
The Cavanaugh Expanded is offered in neighborhoods across Central Kentucky, Louisville, and Knoxville. Starting prices range from $205,950 to $261,950. For more information on this plan, visit our website today!

The laundry room. It's a place that we probably spend more time in than we'd really care to think about. Just because this room serves as a very cut-and-dry purpose (no pun intended), it doesn't mean that the room can't be useful as well.
A few weeks ago, we asked you what is on your laundry room wishlist. We received a lot of comments about what people love (and don't love) about their laundry rooms.
Here's the top 3 must-haves:
1. Folding counter
Have you ever had a hard time finding a clean surface to fold your clothes? Having a folding counter gives you a designated space to spread out and keep your clean clothes clean (and off the kitchen counter or couch). We've incorporated a folding counter into many of our floor plans, like the Hudson or the McCormick II.
2. Located on the second floor
Laundry rooms have been moving out of the basement and closer to the source of the dirty clothes. For those with two story homes, many people prefer to have their laundry rooms upstairs, like in the Cavanaugh II or Livingston plans. For added convenince, we've also started including a doorway from the master closet for easier access to put freshly laundered clothes away.
If you're not able to have a laundry room on the second floor, many people prefer to have a laundry room/mud room located near the garage entry. These helpful buffer zones allow you to have a drop off location for all the shoes, gym bags, and sports gear that tends to accumulate near entrances and exits. Our popular Preston and Hartford II floor plans allow for customization of your mudroom, including a boot bench or utility sink.
