Raised floor. The holes are for ventilation. The column base is a 2x12 redwood with a milled cap

Day light with a porch. - This is a lovely house.Congrats you on the project. I love houses with porches, wrap around porches even appeals me more. I live in Turkey with four seasons and we have 4 months winter over here but also a very hot summer to cope with. My questions is having a porch like this does prevent the day light coming into the house and make inside a lot darker? thanks..

Thank you so much for making it clear for me. I will make sure that extra natural light sources are added in the plans.

Sure. This is a flat lot house, so it will fit on any flat lot. The main rooms on the lower level are open to each other. Looking at the house, the rooms are from the left -living-entry-dining-kitchen.

This was a custom house, so out of respect for the owner I don't feel comfortable releasing the plan. Sorry.

How did they decorate the dormers inside?
Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Ok, I understand now. It's just attic up there. The dormers on this house do add a very nice element to the roof line. The dormers caught my eye because they follow the 75% rule and look perfect (Window area should take up at least 75% of the over all dormer size). I got that out of my "What Not To Build" book. Great looking house!

These dormers bring light into the great room and upstairs bedrooms. I have done false windows in a required fire wall. Sandblast inside face of the glass, painted dark dry wall behind. In my Tropical Plantation house on my web site, the left hand dormer is false. We put closed shutters over the dormer face to simulate a window behind.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Steven Corley Randel, Architect added this to Roots of Style: Ranch Architecture Roams Across the U.S.
Notice the massive red brick chimney on this traditional-style ranch house. Large masonry fireplaces mark another common element of this style. Particular to this one, a full-width front porch with bracketed post details adds to its character. Two large bay windows contribute to the theme and spread easily under the broad porch.

I've never been s fan of those former windows that pop out, but the covered porch that runs the length of the house makes it better. if the house only has a couple former windows, even a small covered doorway with craftsman pillars/columns would look nice.
