We finally got our finished plans from the architect. He’s a pencil and paper sort of guy, so there are no fancy 3D renderings. But I’ll share the elevations, because they’re still kind of fun.
Now that the land is ours, we can move on to other things.
First thing – the people need a place to live. We need a house. When we first decided to build, for whatever reason, both of us were thinking “Dutch Colonial.” Stylish, classic, and not as common as the more ubiquitous “modern farmhouse” – whatever that means. But (strange as this concept is to some people) the style of a house has some influence over its layout, and how it “lives.” A Colonial, of any flavor, is a somewhat formal home. And, if we’re to be honest, we aren’t formal people.
