Cottage Lake House Porch Addition

Contest Ended, Winner(s) have been selected.
Description:
We have a lovely cottage lakehouse that is lacking a covered back porch. The house appears very flat and it needs character. We will only cover the back from windows 1 to 3 to include the glass door. The remaining two windows to the left will not be covered. The porch should extend the length of the deck and follow the line of the deck as it is right on the property line. We can either go through the planters or move them if we need to. The planters allow for a set back of 22 to 24 inches to allow for a proper eave.
I have a contractor that can build from sight or plans.
Must have metal roof.
I will attach a few photos of porches that I like to the last two spots.
Wants:
It must look like it is part of the house and not an addition.
Don't Wants:
We can't block the view.
It can slope straight down.
Software:
  1. I am unfamiliar with what to use
Additional Information
My description needs to read "width" of deck instead length.

Also, The porch CAN'T slope straight down!

#7 Porch Addition With Second Level Sundeck by d_losinski
I extended the second floor balcony to wrap around the front of the house; the balcony expands at the right to create an open sun deck that mimics the shape of the deck below. This addition allows an excellent private spot for sun bathing, an opportunity for multi-level outdoor entertaining. The transition allows the roof edge to follow the deck line below and makes the addition feel like part of the original house design. Thank you for considering my design.

#8 Porch addition by d_losinski
The porch addition's roof line follows the existing roof line. I held the addition roof back from the edge of the deck to avoid the awkwardness of the two angles competing for dominance. As designed, the addition roof line has a direct correlation to the existing roof while allowing the deck line to exist separately. The end result should be an addition that works naturally with both the existing house and the existing deck. Thank you for considering this design.

Susie,
I would leave the planters and benches where they are and place the new columns directly behind them as I have shown in the submittal. They are too nice to remove.

You will need to know what construction documents re required to pass codes before you build or you will get a stop work order posted on the project. I have been at this for over 20 year both building and working for architects I have seen builders get the stop work orders you may have it where you do not need it I have seen that too.

I have the details for the porch. The deck in tappered and the height is much higher than I thought.
>
>Looking at the house from the lake the frist pole the right can actually go in the ground without going through the deck and it is 15' 10" the next planter box is 15' 11" the next one after that is 14' 9" and then 12' 6" to the second window (from the left) beam where the porch will end. These measurements include a 22' setback from the edge of the deck which is on the property line.
>
>Now, the height.... the porch will attach at 11' from the deck and the pole will have to go in the ground which is 14' from the attachment point. Nice and tall.
>
>I hope this makes sense. Let me know it it doesn't.

Hi Susie,
I have a design finished for you, but the CAD Crowd documents suggest not submitting a design until a payment has been made; as I see your status is Payment Pending. I am not sure exactly how this works on your end, but it would be nice to be paid for my work if you like the design.

I will need to get the deck dimension on Saturday when I an up at the lake. The porch should go between the first and second floor.
Tue, 05 Aug 2014 18:46:46 +0000
can you give some dimensions of the back porch? and the height of the covered porch??
Wed, 30 Jul 2014 20:55:36 +0000
Hey y'all, I have a couple of questions for clarification... firstly do you want the covered porch roof line to start from the existing roof line of the second floor or a new roof-line between floors at approx 9' mark. Also can you clarify what you mean that it cant slope straight down....

I have several idea that would work great but I want to make sure I am on the ball park with your ideas.

I can have this turned out in a day for you if you can get back ASAP

300 sqm 3D floorplan sketch
I have a land and I'm planning to make a 4 floor building for a residential purpose . The design should be a modern style apartment .the land size is 700 sqm but the allowed space for building is 300 sqm . I need to see 2 different designs as this : First design : The floor should consists of 2 apartments , first apartment to have 3 bedroom and the second apartment to have 2 bedroom . Both apartments must have at least 1 master bedroom , a living room and a hall with setting and dining area . I suggest the size to be 170 for the 3 bedroom and 130 for the 2 bedroom . There should be built in wardrobes . Second Design : Should consist of 2 apartments , first apartment to be a 3 bedroom apartment with all masters and a small clothing room in one of the master rooms. it should have also a big hall , living and children playing room if possible . The size of the apartment should not exceed 230 - 240 sqm . The other studio apartment should not exceed 60-70 sqm . I have attached 3d designs that I really liked but it doesn't fit my land plan . I also have attached an autocad floorplan that has been mad by one of the local designers but it didn't meet my expectations but I attached it for your understanding . Please note that the ground floor apartments should have 2 Entrance , one entrance is the Main stairs entrance that leads to other top floors and the elevator and the other one is a side entrance for each apartment in the ground level . You may notice that the setback area is shown in one of the designs attached which should be mined .

I'd start with a bangle, probably with one main charm, a small crystal and a small charm with our logo -- kind of like "Alex & Ani" level of complexity, but for gamers. The main charm should probably be metal. The bracelets are for women, gamers or partners of gamers.
