Visiting Architects Draft Schematic Floor Plans

Matteo and Tomoko, two of the three members of the architect team were here last weekend to work on the plans.

Some design features to look out for: 2nd floor breakfast/lake view entertainment area; guest quarters with tatami and ensuite facilities; wooden stove with oven and cooking top between kitchen and dinning area; pantry; sunken family/chill-out room; huge storage/crawl space.
