Last Friday (19th) we got the first designs for the house from the architect. We have been thinking over them, over and over since then. I believe that what annoys us most, is that the house is too big. Bigger than what we want. We are going to tell him today.
Strange thing 1. We go to architects, because they have a better understanding of how a house should be built. But then we don’t’ like what he tells us, so we tell him how to design our house. And he does. Why do we go there in first place?
Strange thing 2. Our architect says that usually his clients complain that the designs he first proposes to them are for too small houses. So he makes them bigger than his first ideas. With us it is the opposite.
In some strange way, we are trying to convince him that what we ask from him, is what we REALLY want. Will tell you more about how difficult it is to build an energy saving house…
