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.

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
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
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'
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 :)
