Creating your own custom homepage

Hey everyone,

I am wanting to create my own, in addition to, the custom layouts that Nelo comes with. I do not believe that part will be terrible diffuclt, BUT how would one go about adding that to the selection in Theme Options "Choose layout Mode"

I would also like to be able to add to the types of layout choices when creating a page.

Any suggestions?

Thank you for the help

cheers,

troy
