Coppell/Valley Ranch/Las Colinas via 635/35 or 114E to Medical District/Uptown slightly over 20 mins and to Downtown Commerce in under 30 mins .

Thanks for all your input on this topic so far!
Beazer and Standard Pactific and national companies. They have floor plans with Options (add a 5th bdrm, bump out the kitchen), but I don't believe they allow customization (move a wall, add a door, 3 car garage instead of two, etc.).
Paul Taylor is a Dallas company. They have base floor plans and you can make modifications.
Atrium Fine Homes (truly a custom builder) has built a few in the Stoney Creek neighborhood as well as in the St. James and Waterfall areas.

In areas of Stoney Creek you can buy the lot and have your own builder come in if you wish.

Thats really valuable information Carroll. Thanks once again. Now I understand what options is when I see all those floor plan options on their websites. And I didn't know you can get your own builder in these communities. One more question, might be a stupid one, can we buy two lots(just to get bigger size!) but build only one home in this community?

You can purchase two lots but I suspect you will not need to once you see the size of the lots. All of those homes sit on good size lots. Those homes are not stacked on top of each other. The city of Sunnyvale made the decision that they did not want there homes placed on tiny lots so they have a minimum size lot requirement. I drove by the area yesterday and they are currently framing up the new elementary school.

HA HA we tried that. Not in the gated community or the area to the east of Collins road. Not sure the exact lot sizes, but they're in the 15k to 25k sf range. These are the homes with the alleyway garages. The other areas of stoney creek are 1 to 2 acres (42k to 70k). They would let you buy two of the larger lots, but they're something like $100k/acre.
