9. Don't Block Your View!
This is the second posting of 10 things you should know before you build a house in the South.
Many of our renovation projects are on plan book houses that were built with no regard to the view. The project above did have glass doors on the view but the low ceiling and uninviting exterior space killed the view. We raised the roof by adding a gable and widened the stairs to open the view... WOW what a difference!
My architecture firm, Frederick + Frederick Architects, creates comfortable houses that fit the Southern landscape, climate, culture and client. I have over twenty years experience in residential architecture. Please visit our web site www.f-farchitects.com to see our work.
