Incorporate wisteria and clematis for all summer show of color and structure
how to add a second floor

patio with a pergola covered in vines for al fresco dining is a must for every home.
A little more casual is this vine covering a patio space. Look for a plant that will provide shade through most of the outdoor season. Your personal style will dictate if you want greenery only or some color provided
exuberant for a classic French feel.Another good choice is an espaliered fruit tree. Edibles were always part of a French garden, and a well-trained espaliered tree will fit right in.

Thanks. It was a good solution rather than a fully

WINDOWS AND SHUTTERS GO WITH STYLE OF HOME
is there a lighter material for the shutters than wood?

Where is this home & where can I find more photos of it? Thx!
height of this room? Would you recommend an architect to address an issue like this?
height of this room? Should I seek an architect to create a similar structure?
at all a Cape Cod look, however that expanded, open breezeway would fit well with the architecture here.
One day, when building a house:)
an idea for a breakfast nook.

what kind of wood is used?
Are those metal beams running along the sides of this walkway? What are the railings purchased'? Very nice!! Oh, and is this about 12 feet long?
Could you give me an idea of the ballpark cost for such a bridge?
really adds a lot of drama and access, right? We didn't separate out the costs, but things to consider when figuring costs would include the extra structural work both on the house and on the terrace, the I-beams, the cable-rail system, the metal deck supports, the wood, the hidden fasteners, and finishing
finishing of the wood. Construction labor and materials costs also vary widely depending on where you live. Good luck with your project!
Love how it has a bridge

would it be possible to have access to the floor plans or the blueprints and if so, is there a cost involved and the price please?

an idea of mine, though not this style
Separate buildings, consider one for a lap pool.
is this house over a lake? OMG SO COOL!
I'd love to do this for a family vacation complex
homes in a cluster of small connected dwellings to resemble a village!!!!!!!
I love the idea of this and the setting.
This is a good shape basic style house.....I would want bigger windows.
just stunning! what a great concept
approach, a small Maine fishing village. From the waterside the home resembles a fishing village so much that it wouldn't be a surprise to see locals pull up in a boat to wander around, procuring a fresh lobster in the process.
