Stone Martin Builders (SMB), one of the largest homebuilders across Alabama and the region, officially opened the model home for the Cannongate community in Opelika March 14. A ribbon cutting ceremony was recently held with the Opelika Chamber of Commerce for the model home to celebrate this milestone for the community.

The family-focused community that includes parks, playgrounds and a community pool is located just 1.5 miles from Opelika’s downtown at the tracks. Home buyers can design a home by choosing from various home plan designs that feature four to seven bedrooms, two to four bathrooms and various exterior options.
