Please be aware that touring guests may be asked to remove shoes or wear shoe coverings before entering a tour home in order to keep floors from being damaged.

Eating and/or drinking inside tour homes is not permitted. 

Smoking is not permitted anywhere on the tour property.

Photographing a tour home is at the discretion of the builder. Please ask the onsite builder representative prior to taking photos of the home.

Please refrain from touching décor, furniture and personal items inside tour homes.  Do not open furniture drawers or closed doors. If a door is closed, it is likely because it is an area of the tour home that is off limits.

Guests who refuse to comply with the policies above and/or any guest causing a disturbance on the property of a tour home may be asked to leave.
