This morning I stopped out at the site of an addition we designed in Hampton. The back porch has been removed and the foundations are in place, waiting for framing to begin.

We worked closely with this client, starting from his initial design sketches. Through discussion, sketching and 3D computer modeling, we developed this plan for a new garage and master bedroom suite. The plan ended up very close to the initial sketches, with a few improvements to reduce the cost of the structure, improve the connection to the existing house, and allow access to an adjacent existing shed.

This project is a good example of how collaborating with your architect can improve on your initial ideas and make the end product fit better, look good, and cost less.
