I had to take this with our camera as it wouldn’t scan!
As you might be able to make out, we planned for two French doors to replace the double windows, singles French doors replacing the other two windows, all with over lights above.
I had drawn a cross rail for the veranda, but since we have completed the front veranda (photos of this soon), we have changed our mind and gone with no rails.
That is the beauty of a working drawing, it is not a plan, and you will change it as things don’t fit in, new products are found etc.
You might be able to see how it all ties in with what is already existing..or not!
This is what I had planned for inside where the double French doors will be, the living room our the back of the house. It has changed slightly since this was sketched (furniture arrangement I mean), but you can see what we wanted to do with dressing the doors.
Lucky they are working drawings I say!!
This is a job I am working on at the moment which is by the Ocean.
The plan here is to bag the outside in a light Latte colour with Charcoal accents (not black). Get rid of Mt Everest stairs and make a main entrance on the first level with beautiful double doors. The top floor will become a balcony to enjoy the sea views. Eventually new windows will be put in and the Garage doors replaced and a beach/ coastal inspired garden will be added.
It is great to have a conceptual sketch to show a client or Builder so they can really get into your head and see exactly what you mean…then you can bombard them with colour chips, swatches etc!! Brooke this post was for you.
Sketches by me!
