Re: Robin's comment on costs. I can remember seeing a couple of homes designs -- probably thrown in a pikle - where the designer/builder essentially did use a square/cube as the basic building block - and used standard dimension lumber, plywood, etc as a factor to maximize space at a reduced cost. It was a 3 or 4 story building on a very small piece of land on the Hudson River.

Another cost saving idea, as oldblackdog inferred, upper floors are cheaper than building bigger on the first floor but may increase the cost of the foundation a bit. However, if you've chosen a cube rather than a rectangle you've already saved a ton of cash and can easily afford the additional foundation requirements.

Our last home had a huge master bath with plenty of light coming from 5 windows, on three sides. I wasn't at all afraid to paint our ceiling black. I loved it as did the visitors who toured on two different home showcase tours. We plan to build a modern farmhouse in the next few years and I intend to use black windows. I love black's versatility to swing from glam to modern.
