The home is dried in...
Visited the VISION House today and it really is coming together nicely. Just having the windows set makes a huge difference in the overall scale of the home, and it feels fantastic. The windows are Low e Andersen single hung with a center vertical stile in the upper sash, which fits the architecture very well. The duct work, electrical, plumbing and sprinkler lines are close to completion as well.
Decision has been made about the metal roof color, which will be a galvanized aluminum and the lap siding will be white...plus the two strory bump out on the south side will also be skinned with the galvanized roof...should look very awesome...and very "urban farmhouse". In addition, the exterior industrial lighting from Barn Light Electric will look awesome against the light color of the house.
We also discussed the use of "off the shelf" chain link or similar fencing to use as porch, balcony, and landing railings...will experiment with that some more. What I like about it is it showcases how to use common materials in unexpected ways, part of what we would like this home to showcase.
I have posted some of the latest photos...let me know your thoughts....thanks.ed.
