  • + Why not sponsor a competition and have the SUNY – Delhi students help us design a house?
  • + What do we need? What are the parameters? What are the possibilities?
  • + Whatever good things we build end up building us. Jim Rohn
  • + What do we need/want? We want to build our dream house but also provide a home for our extended family.
  • + For years we have been a gathering place for friends and their families as well. We want to continue the tradition of being a welcoming place of fun, family, refuge, beauty, and peace.
  • + Nuts and Bolts
  • + When a man’s home is born out of his heart and developed through his labor and perfected through his sense of beauty, it is the very cornerstone of life. ~ Gustav Stickley
  • +
  • + Your goal should be not to design your best house. Your goal should be to design the best house for us!  Rule #1
  • + Rule #2: It’s all about the details. “Explore some of the details that lift a house above the ordinary, such as thick walls, providing something unexpected, the importance of nostalgia, zones of retreat, flow, light, and designing with the third dimension.” William J. Hirsch, Jr. AIA
  • + Rule # 3: Read our wish list. The wish list contains a number of items that are not relevant to the actual design of the house but which will help you understand the overall picture.
  • + Rule # 4: Sometimes knowing what a client does not want in their house helps you understand more fully what they do want. Here are some things we absolutely do not want in our home:
  • + 1. No “contemporary” architecture. 2. Nothing that would inspire you to mount a dead animal head on. 3. We do not want a log cabin look. 5. Nothing that will look dated in 20 or more years. 6. No bathrooms near the dining room. 7. Nothing ordinary, boring, or plain.
  • +
  • + Absolute must haves: 1. Use of superior walls in basement and upper floors. 2. Masonry stoves in both houses. (must design foundation and floors to support these very heavy stoves) 3. Wide staircases and doorways. 4. Lots of light. Lots of windows. 5. Thick walls. Thick arched openings. 6. The design must flow from one space to the next. 7. Angles, arches, architectural detail
  • + 7. It is all about the view!! 8. Handicapped/elder friendly 9. Energy efficient and as “green” as possible. 10. See the handout! 11. Question: Can you design a 2- story house that is elderly friendly? 12. Two main floor master suites. 13. PIZAZZ!!!!!!!!!!

  • + If you go to work on your goals, your goals will go to work on you. If you go to work on your plan, your plan will go to work on you. Whatever good things we build end up building us. Jim Rohn
