I’ve been meaning to post the final set of architectural plans. Ignore, the vinyl siding since we will have wood siding.
We’ll mostly have double hung windows. However the large window on the right (living room) will more than likely be a casement window. The windows above the front door will be fixed windows– due to the vaulted ceiling upon entering the house. The front porch will be large enough to place a bench on one side. As I have mentioned before, the front door and garage door will be replaced.
This is the back of the new addition which is the kitchen and master bedroom above. The kitchen sink will be under the window to the left of the kitchen French doors overlooking the back yard and future garden.
This is the east side/chimney side with the new addition and shed dormer. The windows in the shed dormer will be in the master bedroom above the kitchen. The window closest to the chimney will be in the master bathroom.
This is the west side of the house. To the left is the walled-in sunken patio with the kitchen box bay window overlooking the sunken patio. The box bay window will be big enough to sit in with a good book and a cup of coffee.
The west side of the house will remain the same with the exception of replacing the roof with new shingles and installing replacement windows. If we could, we would make this side a gambrel roof too but we would burn through our budget and have nothing left over for kitchen cabinets, appliances, fixtures, tile, etc. The bathrooms need to be done as well.
A percentage of the budget is set aside for these purchases. Keep in mind, when we get to the landscaping phase, we’ll purchase flowering shrubs, arborvitae, pavers and rock for the patio wall. The front walkway will have to be done. And furniture, blinds and drapes will have to be purchased.. Budgeting is constantly on my mind and it’s stressful to say the least.
