We just purchased a mid-century modern built in 1962 that needs some love and updating.
We are looking for an updated design that looks welcoming and modern, but not cold. Would love to see something interesting with the steps leading up to the house and the ivy area. We prefer neutral colors and drought resistant plants to keep in line with the rest of the neighborhood. On a personal note, we love the look of wood planks. We are actually remodeling the entire interior of the house as well, so we are somewhat on a budget. We live in an area where we are subject to a design review process if we make major structural changes so we would like to avoid this. Looking to freshen up the overall look with new/updated materials and foliage.
Because of the before mentioned design review process, we'd like to leave the below static:
1. Carport location
2. Front door entry footprint (although windows and doors can be moved around within this space)
3. All exterior windows must remain the same (no additions either)
4. Entrance to the carport/garage should stay the same
5. Roof line and roof
Materials/plants to avoid:
Pine Tree species
Although the carport is inherent to the original design of the house, we would like to convert this into a garage for safety reasons and to prevent access to our yard. The front door entry footprint must stay the same, but the layout of the doors and windows within this space can be moved around. We also want to eliminate all of the rock facade near the entry way and also on the planter that runs the length of the house.
The affordability of the design is key for us as a major interior remodel is impending.
We'd like elevation renderings and a text description of the additions/demolitions and also a list of the plants and foliage that will be used.
Measurements of house:
Planter length - 34 ft wide
Door/Window Area - 6 ft x 11 ft
Rock facade by door - 8 ft x 11 ft
Depth of front yard - 20 ft
Ivy Hedge - 50 ft wide
Elevation of house from street level - 7 ft
Carport size- 18 ft x 8 ft x 20 ft(depth)
