    Eh..I’d like to see pics of it when it’s 100% finished because right now it just looks like a sandcastle. Floorplans look alright, the room sizes aren’t as absurd as I would have expected. A 15 X15 formal dining room seems a little small for a home this size…

    Nova Ben’s analogy of a sandcastle is apt. It’s got a surreal quality to it, and not one that I like very well. The layout isn’t bad, but not groundbreaking. It looks like it would be a long walk to the WC from the master bed in the middle of the night.

    I have a feeling the home will end up looking very cold considering they left no room for plants around the base of the structure. Too many pavers and no green space. The exterior stone used does in-fact look like wet sand. Either way, I’m not really digging this place.

    Eh the size isn’t too bad, it’s big enough without having all those excess rooms that will never be used. The layouts alright but I have two major problems. 1, the dining room is not attached to the kitchen, even mass produced tract houses managed to attach the formal dining rooms to kitchens, so in my opinion there’s no excuse for this house not doing so. At this price point and size there should even be a butlers pantry of sorts between kitchen and dining room. 2) this is more a personal preference, but I HATE when master bedrooms are on the first floor. Guest rooms are fine by me, but not the master suite. This to me creates a huge lack of privacy by putting the master directly off the main hallway and near entertaining spaces. This creates the problem of people snooping, wandering in by accident, and thinking its ok to head in and use the master bath. Not to mention that if there’s people over it could be a noise issue if someone wanted to sleep or rest. I also know that having the master on a different level than the other bedrooms can be a big drawback for people with young children. I also think the two story dining room is a bit too much. I find that having too many two story rooms starts to look gaudy and ostentatious REALLY fast, the foyer and parlor are perfectly acceptable, and I always like a two level library, but the dining room is just too much, there’s just no reason for it considering the water views are at the back of the house, not front.

      I’m usually slow to comment too (I live on the East Coast but I’m a night owl, so everyone else usually gets to it first.). It’s a rare treat when I happen to be online when Kenny does a late post 😉

      West coast here too. I either am the last to comment on a popular post or the first to comment when Kenny posts late at night. I’m either too early or too late!
