Guess what, home décor fashionistas? My Model Home Project is back. Get ready to flex your creative juices and show us your sense of style!
The way it works is simple. You choose the upgrades & finishes and then we build the model home. There’s no better way to express your inner designer from the comfort of your living room sofa.
It’s a lot of fun and great practice for getting the most out of the Taylor Morrison design studio. You’ll already be an expert when it’s time to plan your new construction home.
Here’s some more helpful information about the program.
We Need Your Personal Touch
When you open the My Model Home Project website you’ll be provided a city, community name and room in the house.
For example, right now followers are working on designing a luxury kitchen for the San Tan Ridge new home community in Phoenix, AZ. This week, you’re asked to choose between granite or quartz countertops and then to select a paint color to match. Next week? Who knows? You’ll have to check back in to find out.
Whatever our fans prefer, that’s what we build – and you can follow along with all the construction action and watch the homes come to life. It’s just one more way we build homes inspired by you.

See the Results from Last Year
My Model Home Project was a huge success in 2015. Four model homes were constructed according to your wishes and they turned out great. Let’s take a look at two of those models and learn more about the communities they represent.
Avalon at Sienna Plantation, Missouri City, Texas
New luxury Houston homes in the popular suburb of Missouri City, TX. Avalon at Sienna Plantation offers all the best of master-planned community living with floor plans that truly excite. Parks, recreation center, community events & activities, miles of hiking trails and even an onsite golf course – Sienna Plantation has it all.
Fans were asked to select fixtures, sinks, paint details, sofas, accessories and more for the Florence floor plan. What they came up with was truly an exceptional combination.
Highlights of the model:
- What better way to spruce up the game room than a stunning furniture-quality billiards table. Class, sophistication and fun for the whole family.
- No gourmet kitchen is complete without a custom backsplash. The Ledgestone Mini Stacked Slate looks fabulous under stacked cabinets.
- Glorious pendant lighting by Circolo. The perfect combination of form & function.
Reunion Ranch, Austin, Texas
Featuring oversized lots in the Austin Hill Country, Reunion Ranch is zoned for two new schools. School aged residents will attend Sycamore Springs Elementary and Middle and enjoy brand-new facilities.
The community offers a wide range of floor plan options with one thing in common – excellent outdoor living spaces.
It’s no surprise that My Model Home Project asked for input on how to best arrange the exterior décor.
Highlights of the model:
- The stucco fireplace creates a charming & cozy spot to enjoy a glass of wine on cool Texas nights.
- A dark trim was used to accentuate a more neutral color palette for a curb appeal that truly pops. Combined with an ornate front door, the look is one that anyone would be happy to come home to.
- What an upgrade! Home shoppers told us that the ultimate backyard luxury was an outdoor kitchen. It’s easy to imagine tasty smoke pouring out of that barbecue grill.
Why Models Matter
If you haven’t already heard, Taylor Morrison was named America’s Most Trusted® Home Builder for the third year in a row by Lifestory Research. We wear this honor with pride and use it as inspiration to create an even more customer-centered relationship with our new home buyers.
We understand that purchasing a new build home can be a daunting experience. It’s our goal to make the process feel more like fun and less like work.
Touring a model helps a prospective resident see into the future, so to speak. To experience an authentic snapshot of what life might feel like in different floor plans at a given community. It’s important to us that each Taylor Morrison home buyer purchases the right home at the right location.
Model homes matter because they inspire you. Thank you so much for returning the favor by participating in the My Model Home Project.
