Preliminary external elevations.

We met with the architects just before we left for Hawaii.  They have created updated internal floor plans and have created preliminary external elevation drawings.  I will share them below with some brief comment on changes.

Main Floor

snip - main floor

 

Only minor changes to the main floor.  Orientation of the garage has swung 90 degrees.  Entrance has been protruded to provide a grander entrance area wrapped in stone.  The orientation of the powder room and coat closet at front have changed.  Deck has been added.  Small changed to size of guest room.  Bay window added to the Den.

Upper Floor

Reading room made a bit bigger and up higher.  Closet rearranged.

Lower Floor

Exercise room enclosed.   Au Pair room closet moved out.

North Facing Elevation – Facing the road

This is facing the house from the driveway, towards the main entrance.  You can now see the side of the garage from this perspective and not the front.  The small tower looking room is the reading room off of the Master Bedroom.

West Facing Elevation – Facing the pond and field

Looking back at the house from the pond and field.  On the main floor you are looking into the great room, dining room and kitchen.  On the lower floor you are looking into the rec room.  On the top floor you are looking into the Master Bedroom and Reading Room.

East Facing Elevation – Facing the garage from the back of the lot

This is the looking from the back of the property through the garage, as if it was invisible, but don’t worry the garage won’t be invisible.  Looking into the bay window in the Den and Ainsley’s Bedroom on the second floor.

South Facing Elevation – facing the house from the side road, near the lamas.

Looking at the garage, stairwell and Zoe’s Bedroom on the second floor.

Christina wasn’t very happy with the exterior as she was hoping for more of a tradition look and this is much more modern than I think she would have preferred.

Let us know what you think.

  1. I love modern, and this looks awesome 🙂 (especially the huge amount of windows, it’s going to be so bright inside) And you are really going to have lamas? this is literally my wife’s dream
    Would love to get your architect’s name actually 🙂 just in case we get into the build a dream house mindset in the future
