Just a quick update, as that's about all I have time for this week.
If you'd like to comment on this post, I'd love the feedback. I'm stuck on design. Originally, I had intended to try a fairly non-traditional design that I thought worked well with the beautiful view we'll have on our site. It gave the front of the house a large, flat expanse for french doors and a big picture window. However, that design does not translate well on all building sites, and it might be very hard to duplicate should someone want a narrower profile (like building one on wheels). For a reminder, here is a sketch of the side view of my original design:
Now, I'm thinking along the lines of a more traditional design that would be easy to duplicate in different sizes, and may appeal to more people. Something like this:
Obviously, this design is more appealing because you get an idea of the finished product, but I'm trying to be objective.
This morning, before I have to run out, I erected some mock walls and roof that would be similar to the above design. I'm gonna stew on it a while, and hope to start progress on the actually building right after Christmas. In the meantime, if anyone has some input, I'd love to hear it.
