we are getting close to finalizing the design. here are some sketches of the courtyard area and also one of the living/dining/kitchen area. there still is a lot of decision to be made...both for things not seen (framing, insulation, hvac) and those things seen (siding, brick choice, finishes, appliances, etc.). literally thousands of choices to be made.

3rd draft computer schematics

here is the third iteration of our floor plan. things are coming together nicely. the master bath has been reconfigured, as well as the dimensions of the kitchen and study. also, the a/c work in the master closet has been reworked to keep the wall facing the entrance door clean. given the hard economic times, we are hoping that the lending will work out as planned a few months ago. if not, then it has been fun :) fingers crossed- and lord willing....
