I really liked this submission's excellent floor plan. It is very practical and met our requirements. Our issue is with the overall aesthetics. It is an attractive design, but is a little too reserved. We live in a German settled town and this design resembles many of our area's fachwerk houses. We were looking for something that would stand out more.
We have not decided which house we will actually build. Also, this design could be adapted for some of our planned rentals. Please send your contact information to email@example.com if you'd be willing to perform additional follow-on work.
Thanks again for participating in this competition.
