Our Home

Welcome to our home!

ryan courtland model

Our home is a Courtland model built in 2010 by Ryan Homes.  It’s the first home we bought together. When we first got married, we lived in John’s Philadelphia row home. You can read all about that first house here.  We had a positive experience with Ryan Homes and would recommend them to friends and family.

Here’s some basic stats on our house:

– Approximately 3000 sqft
– 4 bedrooms
– 2.5 baths
– Unfinished basement
– No deck or patio as of yet
