Project Description

We've been fans of Romanelli & Hughes ever since we saw their homes in the BIA Parade of Home years ago. They build some amazingly beautiful homes and we were honored to be selected to build their website.

In addition to the really nice design, we've also constructed a very complex database as well. The not-so-complex part of the database allows visitors to search by communities, ready-to-move-into homes, school districts, maintenance-free villa homes or single family homes, prices, bedrooms and bathrooms.

However, the most complex part of the website is the database that allows people to search communities to see which lots are available, on hold, sold, have model homes or even sales offices on them. Each lot is color-coded to show its status:

  • Blue indicates an available lot
  • Yellow indicates a reserved lot
  • Green shows an available home
  • Purple shows where there's a model home, and
  • Red for a sold lot

As you would expect,  lot colors can be changed whenever the status changes of the lot or home.

In addition, when someone rolls their cursor over it, each lot also has a pop-up window built in, as you can see in the screenshot below.
