Keep your views unobstructed. Keep the Space Open. Allowing open views from each area to the next is key in open floor plans. Be stylish but strategic with placement; don’t clutter the sight lines with tall bookcases or inappropriately large furniture or accessories. For example, an arch lamp over the sofa that blocks the view of the kitchen wouldn’t allow for a free flow of conversation. Also be sure to keep windows and natural light unobstructed.
Metal Roofs. The metal roof, formerly relegated to rural reaches, is infiltrating suburban housing. Even corrugated and standing-seam metal roofs are receiving attention. See Plan 933-5. Though durable and inexpensive, metal roofs need to be insulated and soundproofed, unless you really love the sound of rain on the roof.
To make the process move along as fast and inexpensively as possible Dean acted as his own contractor. He hired all the subs. "It is ideal to be your own contractor because most contractors are not on the same motivation line as you are. It's costing you money to have them sitting around." The architectural, engineering, and permitting process took about four months. Construction took about three and a half months.

Using cultured stone to wrap the fireplace, the same stone used for exterior walls, is the most common technique.
