We loved this design overall. The architect really nailed it when it comes to style - the outside of the house with the new addition looks BETTER than the current house. The new sections are well-proportioned and the roofline is attractive. We also liked how attentive the architect was to our photos and materials - the art studio idea and extra front outdoor sitting areas were really thoughtful. In terms of negatives, I think the kitchen was a bit on the small side and might be hard to interact with folks in the family room from there. We found that the dining room got more of the windows and were worried that the family room would remain a bit dark. Thank you very much for your submission.
