20' wide 1 story and 1 1/2 story plans
« on: March 24, 2010, 04:05:33 PM »
 Hello All, I am the new guy and have been watching this site for a while now and am ready to make the move on the drawings. I would like to ask some questions first if you don't mind. Would having two different elevations on the roof look silly or what? Please tell me . I have looked at other drawings of cabins and I seem to end up changing them to look like the 1 and 1/2 story plans, so why am I looking elsewhere?  I am not interested in paying $600.00 for drawings and still have to take them to an engineer. Anyway we bought the 4 acre lot and plan to put the well septic and power on it this year and next year start the cabin. Can't wait to get up there and dream but there is still 2' of snow that has to go.  Thank you...Duane

1.   w*

2.  No, IMO, different elevations would not look silly, but would add "interest".

Just because something has been done and has not failed, doesn’t mean it is good design.

I think the best houses start off with simple elements that are then customized and adjusted to the site, the use of the building and the owners ideas and taste.

That's why you will see such variations in the Gallery of houses that used the same plan to build distinctively different houses.
None of us are as smart as all of us.
