The revised design proposal is complete and ready for preview. Below is a downloadable pdf of the design plan, and some 3d renderings of the exterior. I moved the columns and windows as per your request, however this affects the gabled entry and it's symmetry on the entry door. It required moving the left entry column over more which now causes it to partially obscure the double hung window to the right of the picture window. Basically, we can't have it both ways, but this is the best compromise. I extended the entry gable over the stairs. We can only get 10" of projection without going to a variance. I wasn't sure if you wanted this projection to be constructed on beams coming out the porch (visually free floating), or if you wanted columns from the underside of the gable and down into the stairs. Let me know about that one clarification.
