I can only see pictures of their houses on their website... no floorplans. Am I missing something?

Yeah I found the same thing yesterday. No floorplans or prices, bummer. We got a "flyer" in the mail yesterday advertising Glenview homes and there is one photo of a family in a kitchen but I'm not sure if its just a stock picture or one of their homes (however I'm not sure how that could be. They are brand new builders and don't have any model homes).

Either they are still building their website or you have to go into the sales office for more info.

I have seen their floorplans—a friend sent me a brochure. Floorplans are decent—big in square footage with finished basements. Only total square footage is listed though so I don't know how big they are without the basements. Not one floorplan immediately speaks to me though. There are some architectural options similar to Mattamy.

Similar exteriors in style to Mattamy's which will bode well for streetscapes.

Homes are listed as single car garage and double car garages which is again similar to Mattamy in Summerside.

No prices though.

here is a link to the brochure: www.glenviewhomes.com/brochure

... still no prices. Floorplans are simple, maybe too much so for me.

Can't wait for the Mattamy prices/floorplans next weekend! I wonder if Glenview will get their website running with prices/floorplans by then?

The square footage is very deceiving... includes a huge finished "rec room" in the basement.

The Meadowbrook floorplan is especially disappointing... this floor plan should be illegal to sell because of its useless design. The foyer walks right into the middle of the very small living room which then walks right into the dining room. Where are you going to put any furniture in that space? There is a den beside the kitchen with a floor to ceiling wall, but other than that, there is no real living space on the main floor. The family room is upstairs and who is going to put a tv in a room so close to the bedrooms? That one just pissed me off. I feel like writing them a letter to cancel that whole design. There should be a police for this kind of stuff. People are spending good money on these homes, and they should have some useful floor plans to choose from.

I don't know anything about this builder, but even if there quality is rock solid, the floor plans alone are a turn off. Please don't waste your money on this! You can find better.

Ok, so my husband vented! We drive by this area alot and always see the sign and finally remembered to check out the floor plans....I completely agree with him, all the plans are dissapointing but the one mentioned above by far wins crappy floor plan of the year award.

Okay I was kinda holding back, but I totally agree. My hubby and I were looking at them too and then are pretty "interesting". That one floor plan Hoda and Ash are talking is really ridiculous!
There is one (perhaps it is this same one, I can't remember) that doesn't even have a pantry in the kitchen! And we had to giggle at the "designer changes".
