Well, the porch piece in this image is 25'-0" deep x 26'-10" wide and the kitchen piece in this image is 21'-2" deep and 16'-4" wide. There is an additional piece (not shown here), the original cape that is to the right of this image and it is 24'-6" deep and 16'-2" wide.

Typically there isn't additional cost. We often have the ability to specify how the perimeter drains are specified and we make sure they are wrapped with filter fabric to avoid clogging. Gutters are additional cost and new models have ways to prevent clogging and snow tear-off.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

From an engineering standpoint, all of this beautiful earthwork also incorporated solutions to the potential flooding problem in the basement.
Hang a hammock. Can you think of anything else that looks quite so relaxing? String one up now and it will serve as a visual reminder to pause and savor the moment.
Laura Gaskill added this to Sell Your Home Fast: 21 Staging Tips
19. Create a lifestyle people are looking for. Generally speaking, you want to play up what your neighborhood or area is known for. Have a house in a quiet, grassy suburb? Hanging a hammock in your backyard and a bench swing on your porch could be the perfect touch.
