HELP!! Cover up building design error
July 25, 2013 in Design Dilemma
We are building a new house and I have only recently realised that my portico has been designed in a way that I find terrible as it is completely asymmetrical (a problem that could have easily been rectified at the design phase by leaving off an eave but no one picked up). We have decided to lower the gable to help cover this from the front (any ideas welcome) but it is still noticeable underneath. I'm not sure if we should try to cover this in (and have a slightly lower ceiling in the portico, or leave as is and hope that it is not obvious to others (although I'll always hate it). Very disappointed that our otherwise lovely new house has a terrible entry way :-(
