Building a new home is a partnership between you and your builder. You choose your floor plan and design elements. Your builder crafts a high-quality, beautiful home. When it comes to partners, M/I Homes is a smart decision.
M/I Homes has been building homes for more than 40 years. Each home is built based on three core pillars: Smart Process, Smart Design and Smart Decision.
The process begins when you tour an M/I model home. There you meet with a New Home Consultant ready to help you find the best floor plan and homesite for your family. They’ll discuss financing, options and upgrades available for your floor plan and a construction timeline.
Once you’ve decided, it’s time to choose your design finishes. That can be an overwhelming task but not with M/I Homes. The builder’s Smart Series homes allows you to choose from pre-selected design packages that have a set cost. Your design consultant will meet with you to discuss your budget, then show you the packages available in your price range.
There are three different levels. Each level includes three color schemes to choose from and specific design elements. For example, the Platinum Package offers granite countertops, vinyl or ceramic tile flooring, your choice of cabinet color and a kitchen backsplash. Go up a level to the Diamond Package and get everything in the Platinum Package plus wood-grain tile flooring, a third cabinet color option and pendant lights above the kitchen island (per plan).
All décor choices are designed to work together so your home is beautiful. Every floor plan offered in Marvida comes with the same design package options. If you want to tailor your home further, you’ll discover a wealth of structural options and upgrades you can add.
Once your decisions are made it’s time to watch your home being constructed. You will meet with your personal Construction Manager who can answer any questions you have. Better yet, you can follow your home’s progress via the MyMIHome app. The builder ensures quality through its own Whole Homes building standards which go above and beyond current building practices.
Currently, M/I Homes offers more than two dozen floor plans ranging from 1,295 to 3,674 square feet. Floor plans are priced from the $270,000s. Features include open-concept family rooms, spacious kitchens, game rooms, sloped ceilings in the primary suite and family room, and convenient utility rooms.
Visit the M/I model home today and see why building with them is one of the smartest decisions you’ll make.
What upgrades should you add to your new Marvida home? That depends on your family’s lifestyle. What’s best for you might not be worthwhile to someone else. However, there are a few upgrades everyone agrees are worth spending a little extra cash on. These will improve your life and add value to your home for years to come.
The Heart of Your Home
The most used common area of your home is the kitchen. It is the heart of the home and deserving of your upgrade dollars. Opt for alternate kitchens with islands and built-in appliances. Upgrading your cabinets ensures they last longer. Taller cabinets that reach to the ceiling give you more storage space and a finished look. Under cabinet lighting is always useful. If your home doesn’t have a walk-in pantry, see if you can add one. If possible, skylights will add more natural light.
What’s Beneath Your Feet
When it comes to what’s beneath your feet, the standard answer is tile in kitchens and baths, and carpet in bedrooms and family rooms. If you have it in the budget, hardwood floors are worth the investment. Wood floors are prized for their look. Laminate floors that look like wood are less expensive. They also reduce allergens and are easy to clean. If you are planning to sell, wood floors will increase the value of your home.
Upgrade the Primary Bath
If you plan to turn your bath into an oasis for relaxation, standard options won’t do. Many builders are making tubs optional, so if you love a good soak, make sure you have one. Tubs are difficult to tear out so if you want a jacuzzi tub, invest in one from the start. If you don’t need a tub, see if you can extend your shower for spa-like luxury. Radiant floor heating is a must-have for chilly mornings.
Home Automation is a Plus
For comfort and convenience, nothing beats a smart home. Many Marvida builders offer home automation packages that include smart thermostats, door locks, lights and garage door openers. These packages can usually be upgraded. You can and should add more smart lights and outlets, smart shades, sprinkler systems and home security.
It’s easier to add outlets or do any other electrical work while your home is being built. Add outlets to the patio for your television or to plug in speakers. Outlets that exist directly behind your wall-mounted television hide unsightly cords. USB outlets cut out the need for charging stations. If you have an electric vehicle, see about adding a charger to the garage.
Patio Upgrades You’ll Love
Go beyond the extended patio. Add an outdoor kitchen if you plan to host a lot of al fresco gatherings. An outdoor fireplace can make outdoor living a little cozier. Some builders can add fire pits, pergolas, second patios and decking if you prefer. Check to see if you can have a brick floor instead of concrete or tile everything over.
Build It In
Built-in cabinets and shelves solve storage solutions and look great. Add cabinets to your media room to hide game consoles and speakers. Cabinets are also great for game rooms and garages. Built-in shelves give your study a professional look.
Don’t Forget the Garage
Take advantage of opportunities to extend the garage. Some builders will let you add a garage bay so when junior gets his license, he has a place to park the car. Others offer extensions that can be used for additional storage, workshops and hobby areas.

With access to the exceptional amenities available at sister communities Miramesa, Bridge Creek and Canyon Lakes West, Marvida residents always have something to do — including attending some spectacular holiday events.
In December, Marvida residents will be enjoying Cookies with Santa at the Bridge Creek clubhouse.

There will be a face painter, balloon artist, games and prizes, crafts for the kids, moon jump, obstacle course and more. A professional photographer will be onsite taking and printing photos with Santa. Each family will go home with a free photo.
Then we will be lighting up the walking trail around the Bridge Creek clubhouse. During the Holiday Lights event, residents can stroll through stations featuring lighted ornaments and photo opportunities. There will be hot chocolate, too!
When the holidays are over, our residents still have access to all the amenities available in the three communities. That includes four pools, four clubhouses, three fitness centers, two splash pads, two dog parks, sports courts and numerous parks and playgrounds.
Marvida’s own amenity village — The Island — is currently under construction. When finished, residents will enjoy a resort-style pool surrounded by a lazy river, splash pad, water playground, clubhouse, event lawn, shaded pavilion, fire pit, fitness center, dog park, sports courts and playgrounds.

A Fabulous Location
Cypress is booming in part because of its fabulous location. You can hop on U.S. 290 and State Highway 249 for the 30-minute commute to downtown Houston. Cypress is 45 minutes from major employers along the Energy Corridor. Want to attend a concert at The Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion in The Woodlands? Nothing easier!

Cy-Fair ISD serves 116,000 students across 92 campuses. It is the third-largest district in Texas and the 21st-largest in the United States. Despite its size, Cy-Fair ISD prides itself on giving students the personalized attention they need for future success. The district’s lauded College Academy partnership with Lone Star College allows students to receive both a high school diploma and an associate degree at the same time. Marvida students attend highly regarded Walker Elementary, Rowe Middle School and Cypress Park High School.
Small Town Vibes
Cypress may be growing, but it still feels like a small town. The people here are friendly and always willing to lend a hand. Annual festivals like A Taste of Cy-Fair and the CyWoods FFA Fall Festival & Crafts Show bring neighbors together to enjoy food, fun and a little shopping. Friday Night Lights are a big deal here with everyone coming out to cheer on their favorite team. The Berry Center is a premier sports and entertainment venue that hosts everything from blood drives and high school graduations to concerts and local theater productions.
Whether you enjoy hiking, biking, bird watching or just picnicking, Cypress has got you covered with plenty of parks, playgrounds and wide-open green spaces. Little Cypress Preserve features 57 acres of interactive trails. The Cypress Creek Greenway is an ambitious project that seeks to preserve a natural corridor along Cypress Creek and develop a trail system to connect existing and future parks. Matzke Park is accessible to kids of all abilities. Bibi & Mini Me Bush Dog Park is the perfect place to spend the day with your furry Fido.
Cypress offers more than 140 retail stores and restaurants, so you never have to go far to find what you need or get a great meal.
