Tour of homes

We went with our builders today to see some homes they had done. It was very interesting and we don't have time to go over it all here. We will try and post some pictures if they say it is okay later this week.

Here are the things we liked most on our tour today:
  • timber framed main living spaces.
  • wood living room ceiling
  • "Zen house" and "euro" houses were our favorites (?photos)
  • combinations of wood
  • slate like floor tile and how this went right out to deck
  • In floor heating
  • waxed concrete floor with 4X4 squares in basement
  • board and batten (joe)
  • not so much stucco (tasha) :.), maybe just a little like on the euro house.
  • more natural and lived in look
  • kitchen with several different design themes/wood colors
  • Joe wants a Japanese gong
  • large but opening windows.
  • arches on portico (Joe not tasha)
  • wire railings on straw bale house
  • unfinished natural timbers on the outside of the straw house (looked like trees).
  • plaster inside house.

More later. We are tired but not as tired as Tasha's mom who watched the kids all day!
