Sometimes in the design/build business you meet clients that want to do some nice and simple things. They seem incredibly sane and together when you first meet them, but as the talking to them about their project drags on into months, and then years, and everytime you have a meeting the project scope has changed significantly, you just get the sinking feeling that they are maybe a bit crazy. Then one day they call you out of the blue and are "ready to get started," so naturally you jump at the chance to finally be able to put pen to paper and get some of those ideas out of your head and into the wild. The ideas that have been bouncing around in your head for a year or so just spill out and an almost fully formed design rises out of the flurry of activity. You're jazzed because the project is so strong, and it meets and excedes every single programmatic requirement and desire expressed in the various discussions, and no compromises reared their ugly little heads in the process. You are very happy with the whole thing and can't wait to get it built...
and then that feeling you had all along (rememeber the one where you thought the client may be a bit crazy?) becomes so very right...
Well this design was like that. Which is too bad really, because as you can see this would be a great little house.
At 838sf conditioned space, with a modest master suite and a bonus bedroom/office, this house would live like a much larger house with the various decks and protected space. Simple, small, easy to build, efficient. Nice.
