Is an irvine ementary school slated for the future orchard phases? I thiught I had read that was a possibility.

Entrata is zoned for Canyon View Elementary.  Not Orchard Hills.

Plus Sierra Vista Middle, and Northwood High.

I think I read somewhere California has the largest concentration of Taiwanese people outside of Taiwan. You can find most of these dishes here locally, pretty decent too. PM me if you want recommendations!

Rotate them before posting on TI.  If you're using iOS, you can edit the pics in the PHOTOS app.  Click the edit function in the top right corner of the pic you just opened, then click on the crop symbol on the bottom, the 90 degree rotate button should appear on the lower left.  Rotate correctly.

If you have android, similar procedure, open the photos app, click on photo, hit the edit (pencil) button,  there should be a dedicated rotate button and you're done.

Make sure you save your edits and then attach to your TI posts (remember to pick the edited photo if you didn't erase the old one)

If you're on windows, any photo editing can rotate, even the barebones image viewer. 

Once you're comfortable with this we can move on to lesson 2, embedding photos.

I'm ready for Lesson 2 - embedding photos.  ;)

I visited the Redondo model this morning.  My husband closed the pocket doors so we could get a feel for the space when it's closed.  The great room and kitchen area didn't feel cramped to us.

It took my husband about 60 seconds to open each side, and another 60 seconds to close each side.  The doors were heavy.  If you have the money you might opt for the motorized pocket door slider.  We did not select this option though.

I would love to get some feedback/thoughts on this two toned flooring.  Do you like? Would you install in your home?

My husband really likes, but I am not sure I'm sold on it.

This is in the Capri - Redondo model.


Depends on your aesthetic. To me it looks tacky.

To all the HC buyers: 

How much are you budgeting for upgrades?  Standard 5%? 

Anything that comes standard that you actually like and will keep? 

Also any builder upgrades that are actually a decent deal?

We are estimating upgrades will be as much as 15% of the base home price.  This 15% includes structural upgrades.  The landscaping (front and back) is another story and we're not factoring that into the 15%.

At this point we've only been able to select our structural and electrical options which have had a larger builder markup. We are doing a majority of our upgrades after closing.

I'm looking to make a purchase of one of these homes in the coming weeks, and I was wondering if Toll Brothers is willing to negotiate on the final price of the home. From looking at other Toll Brothers threads, it seems like you can negotiate a couple of percent off the final price (including lot premiums and upgrades) of the home. Anyone have any experience or advice? Is negotiation a common practice, or is Hidden Canyon too exclusive?

Good luck with that.  These are all pre-construction, so there's no incentive for TB to consider lower bids.  You're better off trying to negotiate on lots that are move-in ready (later construction phases), but that's assuming there will be any standing inventory, or another buyer falls out of escrow.

Do they plan to have a new elementary school other than Orchard Hills School?

Orchard Hills is the elementary school.  They're supposed to add the lower grades, but TUSD hasn't lived up to their promises yet.
