I'm new to this site and have just purchased the lot I plan to build on. So far, this is a terrific resource. I hope I'll be able to contribute as time goes on.

So we met with Dave Brauer (designer) this morning to have our initial meeting- basically he just gets a feel for what we want, and we ask him lots of questions about how to save money. He's going to go to the drawing board and call us in 3 weeks or so with a preliminary plan. We'll take the plan on vacation with us and ponder it, and then when we get back we'll have a list of changes to give him.

It's looking like this: 2400sf under air 3/2.5 w/ a 3 car garage (with one door only), monolithic slab, hip/gable shingle roof, tilt-wall construction. Here's a bit more info on each of the rooms-

Patio: Summer kitchen and hopefully a pass thru from the indoor kitchen, sliders to interior

Kitchen: Range, DW, walk-in pantry, natural gas appliances, peninsula style

Master suite: tray ceiling, garden tub and walk in shower with no door, single WIC not in bathroom

Other rooms: Formal dining room (a.k.a. office/library), utility room w/ sink, hopefully half bath will be a pool bath, 2nd BR is sort of a guest suite

Living room: wet bar

Foyer: single front door w/ sidelight and transom, 10' ceilings except in kitchen/main living area, where they will be 12'

Hmmm I can't think of what else. I love his past work, he tends to design very open and casual spaces, which is what we want. He believes that the features we are asking for will make for a marketable house, and after meeting with him, I def. think that a 3/2.5 is a better way to go than a 4/3- more room in the living spaces, as opposed to small secondary bedrooms we'll hardly use. I will most certainly be on top of the picture posting thing by the time the floor plans come in :)
