    Default New home, opinions wanted

    I'm working on a new project in a small town near where I live. This is the primary plans. It is a 1700sqf bungalow with high ceilings, loft style interior, and walk out basement onto the lake, 3 car garage up front (of which you can only see the side of in the front angle)

    You guys are the first people besides myself and my draftsman to see these. My question is which do you like better, the plans as they are now, or with a more modern roof lines





    I'm leaning more towards the second one, but I wanted to get some thoughts on it before I spend to much time on it. Particularly the area over the entrance way. What are your thoughts?

    I'm a fan of modern. So that's where my vote is

    I'd go for the modern version,too. Altough it would be nice to a 3D animation or something like this as basis for your decision.

    I'd go with the modern one ... also instead of having 3 separate windows on the front I'd put one big one.

    I like the modern one more, but if the area has a lot of older people it may turn them off.

    Great minds think alike! I'll start the rendering on the new roof line that was my preference as well. The house is being built in an established town, with a lot of young families.

    Last question on rooflines, above the front portch, do you think the angle should follow the left hand roof line and risk looking out of place as it wont be symmetrical, or should the roof raise toward the front of the house (in this view, it would hard to show, as it would be at its highest right at the front of the picture)? In this one angle following looks fine, but I might question it from other angles. How ever obviously in Canada I would have snow load to contend with, and it would be less then ideal to channel the snow towards the inside of the structure...

    It would make putting christmas lights up easier. I like the modern one!

    Looks like you're going with aluminium. Is brick uncommon in your area?

    BTW those high ceilings will look great, I put ceramic in a home that looked similar to your single drawing and the ceilings really added "prestige" to the home.

    Reclaimed brick is relatively common, and what I want to be using for a few pillars inside the house. due to building restrictions I had to do a single story, but being that I love tall houses, and loft interiors, I'll make it work.

    Here is one of the inspiration photos for the interior



    As far as exterior inspiration, I'm hoping it will be similar to this (my favorite house of all time)
