Here are some of our early drawings/plans for the house. Jim is the talent here. (No surprise since he is a professional illustrator by trade).
The basic design is a three pod house. We designed it this way in part so we can build it in stages. We plan to complete the two largest pods (cobbing and the roof at least) this year, and finish the main bedroom pod next year (in 2012).
And this one shows more of the interior layout with consideration for furniture and function.
This one has lots of character, but more windows on the north side than we eventually have decided on. I like it because it gives a feel for the urbanite stem wall.
