Elevation Updates - Hollyspring
So I looked at my elevation and suddenly a lot of what Hollyspring commented about popped out at me and I agreed with it (THANKS HOLLYSPRING!). One thing that breaks my heart is that I wanted a 3 story home BUT 3 different builders all told me that 3 story homes are MUCH more expensive in this area than 2 (something to do with insurance for workers and hurricane code). So, even though I love the proportions of the inspiration, we're committed to two stories.
I updated the plan to try to liposuction. I widened the entry, raised the porch, killed the bump ups by the front door. Better or Worse?
Here is the original and the new (sorry about the color-I can't color original):
