The only thing I hate about forced air is how dry it is, otherwise it works fairly well.
Thanks again Skids.

That home is freaking beautiful. If you have the money, and you like it, buy it.

I want your opinion on this particular Frisco home. I want to know if you guys know a little more about its location, its subdivision, and how is the ISD that it is located in.

Thank you so much.

It is beautiful... it's not a tract home. No way. Whoever the original owners are, they went nearly all out with the first floor. Those are some crazy upgrades that would cost me dearly to duplicate. I wonder if the floors are limestone in the first floor.

While the home is high end, no doubt, it is still a tract home in the sense that it was built on a tract of land in a subdivision of similar homes.
A non tract home, in my opinion, is one that is fairly unique on a lot that isn't part of a big subdivision of lookalikes. For example, some estates in Bluff View.

Good thing to point out. Is this subdivision all built by Shaddock?

I have seen some subdivisions like Bella Lago in Flower Mound, Estes Park in Southlake, and Manors of Waterford in Keller.

Are those tract homes as well?

Maybe. I'm sorry, but high end doesn't mean it's not a production builder tract development. Especially zero lot developments. Actually, developments usually are subdivided tracts, intended to look homogeneous == tract homes, possibly expensive.

If you want a non-tract home, I suggest finding a nice lot that is unique, hiring an architect and then shop for a builder who builds custom homes, not from an in-house designer.
