Anyway, the main purpose of this trip was to get a better idea of what 'Tan' looked like. We took some pictures and decided that either Tan or Taupe would be OK. Neither were perfect, but we were ok with them.
The lot to the right of ours was sold before us, so we had to avoid the color siding they chose. Meg didn't want the same color shutters as well, so I emailed the rep at Ryan Homes. He provided us with the updated elevation tracking. So our surprise, our neighbor had changed their color to Khaki. This means we can have the sandstone we wanted all along!
I've switched the picture on the blog to generally what we're getting. Milan: Elevation C All Siding. The picture shows partial stone, but it's the best I could find.
