Description:We would like to change the exterior of our home. Currently, it is brown wood siding and which we do not like. The wood is difficult to maintain especially with all the wildlife. We are going for a modern, contemporary feel. Feel free to use google sketchup, sketch on top of, or photoshop the supplied photos of my home. This can be considered a ‘concept’ phase to determine colors, texture and overall shape.
Project Details: Add some sort of overhang over the front door. Maybe extend it toward the garage and think of a clean way to support the overhang. We are going to completely redo the front steps and entry so the silly deck can go. Feel free to be creative.
1) Our trees leave lots of seeds, sap, etc. So in general, lots of white may not be a good idea.
2) Feel free to leave out the window in the basement next to the small front porch. It may or may not be shown in my images. I plan to remove this basement window.
3) I could go slightly larger for windows by extending them down toward the floor. I would prefer to keep the window widths the same, but increase the height by adding to the bottom. If making the windows longer helps your design, do it. Keeping them the same size is ok too.
Attached are some examples of homes that caught my eye. Hope this gives a sense of colors textures and the feel that I’m after.
Project deliverable: Create a computer generated sketch, or good hand sketch to visually show how the home would look.
Wants:Designs judged based upon the cohesive look, whether it met the criteria and feasibility of the design. Extra credit if modern stairs and some simple landscaping included in sketch.

Convert Hand Drawn Plans to CAD (trace)
I have 2 hand drawn plans of my property that need to be converted to CAD format (DWG) as well as PDF. These are approved development plans which now need to be used to show amendments for review. I have both A4 and A3 scans available of the plans. Coloured sections on plans were used for previous approved amendments that have been completed and need to be incorporated into the CAD plan.
