Need help with ideas for tweaking our front elevation

4 years ago

Hi all. We are working with a very good architect right now but I want to get our ducks in a row before we meet with him again to discuss potential changes on the front elevation. Our floor plan is pretty much done and we gave him some unique circumstances to work with.

The garage on the right side of home has to have 16' walls and 20' ceiling in the middle because it has a basketball court in it. It is a side-loader so everything you see on the front can be adjusted mostly.

The entry wall elevation is 18' but more narrow. It could be widened some if we use smaller windows on the immediate left and right of it.

How do we dress this house up a bit more? I don't know how I feel about the roof line and the overall balance. Or is it good as is? Our set backs are maxed out to the front of the home and we can't move anything back either due to floor plan being mostly locked in.

His idea was to use some landscaping (palm trees here in South Florida) to put in front of the garage's empty space.

Thank you for any help.
