    On july 24,2009 there was a post of the Lake Carrington Estate, this to me is an improvement on that design. The only thing missing is room sizes and overall demensions of the house. Great job.

    When I saw it I thought Lake Carrington, see more are thinking this also.

    I have also done my version of the house at Lake Carrington, perhaps I should post it for comments.

    Yes this is my version of Lake Carrington. But obviously mine is much bigger and mine has a much better layout to me.

    Mike F- You should post your version I would love to see it.

      Russell where is the extra space, what are the measurements. I especially liked your main staircase and the HUGE walk in food pantry.

      Today it is still a bit in planning process. I thought it was finished, but I discovered some room for change. It has a 2-story reception hall, and the hall I have done in two versions; one has many columns and the other one has none. See when I can finish it and post it.

      The original estate at Lake Carrington suffers from a plan that is not so good. Right away I noticed things I do not like very much. But planning a home is not easy, usually others find something that they do not like, and to plan a house that everyone likes is perhaps impossible, not sure about this.

      You must be prepaired to take some critics when it comes to the work you do, and floor plans is something that you can debata a loooong time 🙂

    George there are no exact measurements. I estimate that each block is 4.5ft to 5ft each.

    as a professional architect i must admit there are some flaws, but overall an amazing design for someone a presume is not in the architecture/building industry. The only thing I have a problem with is the number of 1/2 bathrooms. Personally i think six is a bit much. I have designed many homes for wealthy people and even some semi-famous people and none of these homes have that number of bathrooms. Even my personal 7,000 square-foot home only has two half baths. Overall, though, I think it is an amazing design and encourage you to keep designing!

    Architect 121: Im not a professional architect im only 15. I would feel right taking one if the 1/2 baths away but the other 5 I feel are needed for large parties and gatherings.

    I still don’t think a half bath on either side of the foyer is necessary.

    I like the house but there are a lot of fundamental design flaws with the house.
    Good effort for a 15 year old.
    I will go through them later when I have some time.

    The next time you build a house remember that proportion is KEY. Judging from the size of the powder rooms that ballroom is somewhere around 12 feet by 27 feet. Which is not very big at all.

    Nice effort. 🙂 I like the fact that you were thinking grand when you designed it… not just a regular home with ballooned room sizes and odd indulgences thrown in here and there. Love the transverse hallway.

    The architect is definitely right about the excessive number of half baths.

    My main gripe is the home office accessed through the ballroom… That’s rather odd, IMO.
