Now's the chance to build the house you've been dreaming of living in your whole life! After we see the way you've constructed, decorated, and landscaped your home, we're sure we will be able to tell what state you currently live in. The details are entirely up to you, but they will give us the information we need to place you in the proper area code. 

How can the way you build a home tell us where you live? Not only do houses carry specific regional features, but your personal tastes probably reflect more of your location that you realize. Sometimes without knowing it, we are greatly influenced by our everyday surroundings. 

The way you choose to build your home will provide subtle clues about your state. While it could be as simple as the plants you place in your flower pots, we would like to go a little deeper than the obvious. Share every last brick you'll put into your home with us!

By the time you've outfitted your kitchen and treated yourself to a state-of-the-art bathroom, we are confident we'll be able to nail down where you live. Will we put you in the right place? We think we will!
