Western US examples are not abundant. Fremont County, ID has a couple of good examples, one of which was most definitely a commercial success (but at the high end of the market). You could contact Rodney Eastvold or Karen Lordes at 208-624-4643 regarding the Arrowwood and Sand Creek developments. There is an excellent example just east of St Paul. MN called the Fields of St Croix. It has appeared in some of the literature. I assume you are familiar with the published works of Randall Arendt.
