    So here is an update with new roofline


    Now my question is this, while it looks fine in front elevation, from the rear it may look a bit off having a traditional roof next to a modern roof. Again this is being built in an area with heavy snow loads, so a flat roof etc is out of the question.

    What would you guys recommend for this area if anything?


    The biggest problem is the "flat" section in the middle, if it was a continuous angle on the right side of the house, that peak would be much higher, and in turn the left side would have to be made higher to compensate, making it look out of proportion... I'm sure there is a solution, just trying to think of it...

    For the snow I would think your last drawing is the best. Flat roofs or rooflines that get "gutters" can't be used so this looks like your best bet.

    As an architect and interior designer, this depresses me. But it seems to be the way things are your side of the pond. Sad.

    Just different styles, my home is also in that classic British aristocratic style, but that one is also nice, because it matches.

    That also depresses me.

    I just don't get why you guys insist on 'designing' your homes in 'the style of..' something. It's all ooh look at my "Italianate villa style house", my "French Chateau style house", my "British Aristocratic Style house". I mean, come on, what is 'that British aristocratic style" for god's sake?!

    But shit, I just noticed you're in Germany! You say it's nice because it matches... matches what?!

    I´d say the brick walls match the untreated wood pillar and the wooden floor, that concept just appeals to me.

    British Aristocratic style: Rosewood paneled walls, oak parquet floor, chesterfield armchairs, heavy dark wooden furniture ...

    Looks like we have an architecture snob on our hands....

    Instead of just talking shit, why don't you post something that doesn't "depress you"? f*cking goof
