Blogs of RH builders, by model

Not all of these are current, and not all of them are even helpful.  I'll keep this updated indefinitely, so if someone new joins the fray or you know of one I don't have, let me know and I'll add it in!

  1. This comment has been removed by the author.

  2. I added this data to the spreadsheet at notes of dates and details are also available there.

  3. I love this list! I was so hoping to see a Springbrook on here but it looks like there aren't many of us. Maybe you can add my blog for future Springbrook builders. Follow us at

    1. You get to be the first! :) I hadn't even heard of the Springbrook until I was snooping through all the brochures in our model. It's a good-looking home!

  4. Great list!!! I was always on the hunt for other people building Zachary's when we were building our house and had a hard time finding any other blogs building our model.

    1. Lol...the first time I posted this, I had your blog as simply "single family" because I didn't know what your model was. We don't seem to have that model here in the Richmond area, as far as I can tell. Obviously I figured it out eventually. ;)

  5. This is great - thank you for taking the time to categorize all these sites by model !


  7. This is a great list. We are building a Victoria Falls and I just started a blog for it. Could you add

  8. This is a very helpful list. Thanks for taking the time to complile it. I'm just starting to build an Avalon. Feel free to post my blog to this list

  9. Thanks for putting this together.

    Here's us:

    1. Added! Congrats and good luck. :)

  10. Hi!

    Can you please add me to the list?


  11. This is a fantastic list. Did not even know such a thing was compiled by anyone. Would you add our Victoria Falls blog to the list. Thanks.

  12. Hey just wanted to let you know that you have Charlie R and Thrifty Amy flipped. Thanks for including in your Florence list.

  13. This is an awesome list! Thank you! We are just getting started and we are building a Victoria Falls....

  14. Awesome list! Can you also add us? We could be the second Springbrook to be listed!!! lol

    Just dug on Friday - our blog is

    1. woo-hoo! Welcome to the club! :)

  15. Do you think you could add us too? We're a Mozart townhouse.

  16. Hi Amanda, I just found you today. You did an awesome job in compiling the list! I would have sworn I had seen all the Victoria Falls blogs until I saw two here that I hadn't come across. We are building a Victoria Falls too in York PA, could you add my blog to your list? Http://

    1. Added! Glad to see this is still helping people. :)

  17. I just found your site and love what you've done! I'm learning so much and getting so many ideas...thanks for doing this!

    Please add me to your list I just started building a Rome in Charlotte, NC. My blog is:

    1. Added! Shortened your page title a bit, though... ;)

  18. I don't see our model Fox Chapel listed here. May be there isn't many of us. (Fox chapel is almost like the Oakmont model except it offers Laundry on the top floor. It's about 100sqft smaller than the Oakmont and about 10K cheaper)

    Please add me to your list:

  19. Great list! We have started one for our Milan build! Here you go!

  20. Love your blog! We are building a Richmond! We would love to be added to your list:

    1. Added! And I think we might be neighbors, from what I see in the background of your pictures... :)

  21. Hi my name is sarah! We are about to sign our contract to start building a sienna! :) id love to be added to your list :D

  22. Hi! Wow, great job on the list, this is amazing, thank you! Could you please add mine? We just broke ground this past Monday.

  23. Hi, my wife and I are building a Sienna. Could you add our blog as well?

  24. Awesome to see all the blogs listed in one place! Thanks for putting them all together.

    **Home in a Rome**

  25. we are building a victoria falls if you want to add our blog

  26. So exciting, a great resource! We are building a Rome, if you'd like to add it:

    1. Welcome! Looking forward to seeing what you add to the Rome conversation. :)

  27. Great blog. We just started building a verona in SC. If you want to add my blog

  28. I've added a couple blogs that snuck by me, so this should be up to date now.

  29. Hi, please add mine too! This is awesome.

  30. Hello!

    I'm just starting a blog and was hoping you'll add mine! Thanks for making this list! It helped me out a lot!

    I'm trying to look for updated blogs or people building homes the same time as us...

    1. Added! Your best bet would be to look at the most recent comments here for people working at the same time.

    2. Thanks so much Amanda! I'll check those out!

  31. This is so helpful! I've been looking for other bloggers with townhomes or who are currently building. I am new to this but we just started building our Mozart, could you please add me to your list?

  32. Hi! We just started a blog and we're building the Palermo! You can add us to the list if you want! Thanks!

  33. Great blog and thanks for keeping a list of blogs. All of them are very helpful. We just started the process and are building a Sewickley model, but we haven't seen many of these blogs, have you seen any? Could you please add me to your list so we can help other Sewickley builders? Thanks:-)

    1. That must be new, hadn't heard of it before! Added. :)

  34. Love the list Amanda. My wife and I are in the process of building a Florence, haven't even broke ground yet. Would love to be added to the list.

  35. Hi there, after reading all of the awesome Rome blogs, I decided to start my own! Could you please add me to the list Thanks!

    1. Added! Always happy to see another Rome blog! :)

  36. Hello all! Feel free to add/follow our blog as we build a Naples in Illinois. Myself and my wife are new to the "blogging world", so I apologize up front if it takes us a bit how to do everything. Thanks!

  37. Sorry. Here's the full link.

  38. Hey everyone! I'm just starting to blog for the first time! We are building a Lincolnshire (Single family home, first floor master) on the East Coast. Please add our blog and give us feedback! We need all the help we can get! :-)

  39. Great list you have compiled here and great blog.

    I'm a new blogger, please follow and give advice

  40. Hi Amanda,

    Thanks for putting this together. Our model is currently only available on Ohio and we are the first people building it. It's called Olsen.

    Please Add us...Thanks!

  41. Hey there! Your blog was such a big help for us, I read everything! We are also building a Rome! We should be done by mid-November (fingers crossed!). Our blog is if you'd like to add it to the list. Thanks so much for keeping this list updated, it's a huge help!

  42. Love the list!!! So helpful. Thank you. Also love that you are adding the years! Really helpful in finding current blogs. :)

    1. Thanks! It occurred to me that the larger this list gets, the more out-dated some of the blogs will be. When I get all the years on I'll be putting them in date order rather than alphabetical, which will be much more helpful for new folks. :)

  43. Hi! Thank you so much for making this list! I'm glad to see there are other people still on here in going through the same things. Can you please add my blog? We are building a Venice C in PA.
    Thanks so much!

  44. Can you add my blog to your list? I think I've seriously looked at every single blog on here, lol!

    1. Added! Also found another Naples from your blog, so thanks for almost doubling the number of Naples blogs on the list. ;)

  45. I've looked at every blog on here as well! LOL Thanks for keeping a list. You can't get enough information when you're building. We have a blog as well, but it's not on blogspot so I don't know if you can add it. Feel free to check it out though. We chose the Venice and we close in two weeks! Eeeeeeek! So excited. Now I've been looking for decorating ideas :)

    1. Added! These are just links, so it doesn't matter who the host is. :) Congrats on your new house!

  46. Can you add my blog to your list? We just bought a LINCOLNSHIRE with a basement.

  47. Great blog! - We are documenting our Venice at
