A few years ago, my father-in-law found a set of plans that he thought we might like. At first glance, we liked the plans and the more we looked over the plans, the more we fell in love with them.
It had the square footage we were looking for, we liked the open floor design for the kitchen/dining/living space on the main floor, and it had my wrap around porch. I have ALWAYS wanted a wrap around porch. You can check out other designs of similar Sugarberry Cottages here and here.
We are hoping to go with a mixture of dark gray siding and shingle shake with a black metal roof.
We took these plans and all of our ideas then met with an architect who drew up some drafts for us. Here is a look at the exterior!
The above image is what will be facing the lake. We have already made some more changes to the plans since this last mock up. Where you see the garage door, there will actually be windows now because we have decided to move the basement garage access(which will be David's area to work on his cars) to the back of the house.
Cooper's Cottage will have 3 levels.
Basement (mostly unfinished to start)
*2- 1/2 baths
*David's garage/work area
*Master bedroom/bath/walk-in closet
*Additional room(still deciding what it will be!)
*Small pantry/linen closet
*Shared study area
Main Level Garage
*2 car garage
*bonus room above the garage
*mudroom that attaches garage to house
The footers were poured on 5/31 and they are laying down block this week.
Slowly but surely this home project is moving!
