When building your Tampa new home, you’ll have the opportunity to make many exciting decisions, from selecting the perfect home plan for your family, to choosing the interior finishes and features that will turn your house into your dream home. One of those finishes you’ll choose is your flooring, an important element in your home that must be suited to your lifestyle and also fit into your overall budget.

Mohawk EverStrand® is the included option in all of our new construction homes in Tampa, with seven unique color options to choose from, including popular gray, brown, and beige tones, in the Challenger series.
