here they are!
the elevations of our new house!
i am SO, so happy with the way the house will look...classic, clean and with just the right amount of detail. todd jenkins, of frank betz did a wonderful job, and we are THRILLED.
we kept the roof lines very simple, to save money with the framing and roofing...as you can see from the roof sketch and the side elevations, what looks like a front "porch"is really just some pilasters ("half" columns applied to a wall) the setbacks were QUITE a challenge to work around....
i thought y'all would enjoy seeing the original elevation sketch that todd sent to us:
we liked it a lot, but wanted something a little bit "more nantuckety and less lodgey". that is exactly what we said to todd. when i opened the email that contained the new front elevation sketch, i was giddy!
we already have one change---we are going to eliminate the chimney stack. it will cost a fortune and my husband thought it would help prevent ice and snow damming---because we get a TON of snow up there.
what do you think??
do we have a winner?
