We were living in Oak Park and wanted to move back to the southwest suburbs so we could be closer to family. We started looking at the resale market, knowing exactly what we wanted, but not finding it with older homes. As we continued researching online, we stumbled upon 5th Avenue and the Glens of Connemara. We first met Chris in fall 2016 and got the general bearings of the neighborhood and 5th Avenue. Touring the community and seeing the newly constructed homes, our wheels started turning. We saw the potential. In January, we decided to build with 5th Avenue and began modifying the Carna plan to our exact vision. We knocked out the formal dining rooms walls to make the first floor more open. We added a Jack and Jill bathroom upstairs and turned the plan’s second-floor hallway bathroom into an en suite for the second bedroom. We extended both the kitchen and master bedroom four feet as well. Taylor guided us through the design process, helping us to feel confident in our decisions and to visualize spaces. We also used the online Buildertrend software to follow the construction process, monitor our budget, review options, and favorite things we knew we wanted. From start to finish, it was a wonderful experience and 5th Avenue was with us throughout. They were prompt and transparent and it’s wonderful to have an ally like that when you’re jumping into the deep end and buying a new home.
