More help w/ Minnesota 'Cape Cod' floorplan/elevation?
(Is everyone sick of me yet?!)
We just met with the builder this morning to go over numbers. It sounds like we can have almost all of our wish list items...if we trim down the floorplan a little bit. Fine by me--we're focusing on quality over quantity. :)
I typed several questions directly on the floorplan images, but I thought of a few more concerns. Sorry my thoughts are a little jumbled right now! :)
Regarding the deck:
This is a raised deck. Do you see any red flags with the way I drew it? Will the extra footings necessary be super expensive? Is it cost prohibitive to add a fireplace/firepit on the deck?
Regarding the elevation
Does this look okay to you? Any suggestions on making it more "Cape Code" and less "cookie cutter?"
