Love the glass.
Retractible sun roof maybe?
Nice outdoor sitting area
Great kitchen counter eating island
Love the outdoor area
Love the indirect lighting
Colorado home maybe?
Love the dividing wall
Imagine this without the pool
Negative edge spa idea
What kind of material is this exterior?
Nice exterior stone, except for the orange ones.
If we had a flat (or near flat) roof, could something like this work?
VERY nice exterior look. This is ALMOST the stone I've been looking for.
Poured in place concretemaybe? Possible for our garages?
Like this a lot!
Smooth cut limestone. VERY nice!
Like the layout, just not the exterior material. Do something like this in smooth cut limestone?
Like the overhangs.
Nice indirect lighting idea for a kitchen maybe?
If the ceiling in our great room was angled like this, and "fuzzy" material (fabric stretched over fiberglass, by example) was used in between the ceiling boards, this would greatly reduce the live acoustics created by a hard floor.
Like this concept for dining seating.
Our generator is much larger and taller, but we will need a pad like this, 10' x 7'.
I think this is the "negative edge" or infinity spa I've had in mind. This wood is called IPE, similar to teak.
Nice indirect lighting idea for our hall-of-closets.
This is an example of what I call a "block house"...something NOT desired.
Nice overhangs...but do not want a wood deck.
Like this stone look, if it didn't have the orange ones.
Wow! This is an amazing deck. Could something like this work for us around the spa?
Wow, right out of Beverly Hills! Probably could not afford it, but love the design.
Perfect, just make it into a spa, smaller and helf in-ground, half-above ground.
Can't tellif this is an open walkway or not. However, this is the kind of glass wall I've been looking for.
Nice look for a single story. Can't tell what the materials is, stone or concrete.
Here we go! Part in, part above ground. Just no wood deck.
Another cool look.
A little too RED, but nice front door.
These drop-down "clouds" can make a nice break-up to an otherwise boring ceiling.
This is how I see our infinity-spa sitting...half-above deck level, half-below deck level...with the rear "infinity edge" facing the bluff above ground level several feet as the bluff area declines.
Very nice exterior!
Carol, is this what you were talking about for the front walkway?
Nice roof line for a house with many modules.
