Hi Paul: |
The farmhouse addition that we designed for Sarah Richardson was not one of our standard Craftsman plans, but was based on the overall look and massing of our Weekend Warrior series. When we started planning the addition, it was our intent not to copy the original brick construction (with a slight Victorian flair) but to create a grouping of smaller lesser detailed shapes, resembling a cluster of farm buildings. This would allow the main brick house to be dominant, and any attempt to make it look like a larger brick house would take away from it's farmhouse feel and scale.
Our weekend warrior plans are based on the same concept, where by grouping them in several configurations, you can get the feel of a smaller building.
I think the home turned out amazing and it appears that the money spent on the renos is okay with the realtors.
If you have any questions about the WW plans, please let us know.
