Hello!

My fiancé and I purchased an Elmira FC in Phase 2. I was just wondering if there are any other Elmira's out there? If so, what upgrades did you pick? DC? Arch options? What's your elevation? Lot number?

Anything else I should consider for my DC appointment?
Has anyone added a capped electrical ceiling box? And if so, where and for what use?

Hi Whirlwind,

Sorry that I was a bit slow replying; it's been a really busy week at work. :)

We bought the FC Elmira and did our DC appt a couple of months ago. I'm out of town, so I don't have my full upgrade list with me, so I may be missing a few items.

Arch options:
- 9 foot ceilings on the second floor (this is one of my fav upgrades! We went into an Mattamy open house in Oakville and the 9 foot ceilings really opened up the space and made it look bigger)
- I can't remember what it's called, but the package where you get bigger windows and a rough in for a bathroom.

DC upgrades

Kitchen:
Grande Kitchen
upgraded cabinets
Fridge Cold Water Line
Brick pattern Tile
Stacked Cabitets
Island outlet
Delete bulkheads
shorten cabinets for 9" (I think) hood fan
Made adjustments for 36 inch cooktop
Faux doors on island - rear and side
Level 3 tile
Toe kick on island
Hardware upgrade

Foyer:
brick pattern Tile
Tile upgrade - level 3

Mudroom:
Mudroom Tile - level 3
brick pattern Tile

Powderoom:
brick pattern
Delete Fixtures
Delete Mirror
Tile upgrade - level 3

Master Ensuite:
Brick pattern tile
Upgraded Cabinets
Glass shower
Delete Fixtures
Delete Mirror
upgraded tile in shower (floor and walls)
Increase Vanity Height

Main Bathroom:
Upgraded Cabinets
Delete Fixtures
Delete Mirror
Increase vanity Height

Other:
Relocate hose bib to front of garage (I think we might have added a second one, but I can't remember)
Smooth ceilings main floor
Hardwood floor on main - Level 3
1 exterior pot light (we'll add the rest after close
French doors on office
masterprivacy lock - master bedroom
Plasma ready - great room

We also have a list of things that we'd like to do right after our house closes
- Hardwood on 2nd floor
- paint
- Granite or quartz in kitchen (bathrooms eventually)
- exterior pot lights
- valence in kitchen
- air conditioning
- Garage door openers
- Shutters
- Crown moulding and larger base boards
- back splash in Kitchen

How about you? Will you be doing any upgrades after the house closes?

Whats the cost on the toe kick on island? I didn't see that in the design guide.
Also, how much is the faux doors on island?

After closing:
kitchen hood fan
Kitchen backsplash (changed my mind)
Garage door opener
Shutters
AC
96" Double french door for den

Do you have any idea what the doors for the den will cost after close? I assumed that they would be more expensive, but never did the research.

The Toe kick and faux doors weren't in mine either. The Toe kick was $542 and the Faux doors were $940.

Have you been told when to expect your DC appt? Ot Mattamy U?

I'm thinking of adding the doors to the den sometime after closing, once I figured out if I prefer it with or without doors. Not sure if It'll be more expensive afterwards, but I think its better to hold off on it since I won't know what I prefer until I move in. My DC appointment is soon so I need to finalize all my choices.

I asked my rep about Mattamy U and was told it won't happen until sometime next year.

Gotcha! We're planning to use the den as my office, so we know that we'll need the doors.

Hello Everyone,

I just stumbled across this Wild Rose Model, currently for sale. For those who aren't aware, the Wild Rose is pretty much the same model/floor plan as the Elmira.
