Well, we've radically changed the design since I last posted them. We did away with the two-story view in the kitchen and have added a turret that will extend from the family room on the first floor to the master bedroom on the second floor and up to a small lookout room above the bedroom, which we've always wanted.

We had originally developed the plans using the Punch! software, then we discovered that one of our customers is a retired architect. He has helped us tremendously, and has drawn and helped us modify 5 or 6 renditions of our plans so far. We just met with him earlier today and made a few final changes. I was beginning to wonder if we should just go back to the design books and pick a plan, since at times it just felt like the process was taking too long and never seemed like it would be finished. I am so glad we didn't, and feel like all the agonizing was well worth it. There was such a sense of overwhelming stress knowing that you're going to have to live in this house for the rest of your life. But now we have everything in the plan that we hoped for and more. I am really looking forward to seeing his elevations and the final plans. And I'm *really* looking forward to getting bids and moving beyond the design phase!
