I wanted to build a house for a long time on my grandparents land, they had given it to me a long time ago when I was around 11. The land is in Georgia and it is quite close to a small town, the land itself is on a large hill. It is about 20 Acres of land and I wanted to build a home for them myself and my future family to stay in. So I decided to build a hybrid house of Old/New-Japanese and American culture. I have a few years to build the house since I'm just a senior in Highschool. But as of now This project comes down to me. I thought it would be nice to ask the Southperricans what should be built into the house.
Being literal here this is a house that I want to build on 20 acres of land. This is land we've had for ages that no one has used. I'm going to be leveling the land so I can build the House on top of it. I'm also going to clear the tress around the hill and up to the road. Most of this will be done by me and my cousins.
So getting back on topic here, I wanted some ideas into the house planning. The house will be two stories high, with a small building in the back. W/C's will be European style, and the actual bath area will be Japanese style. I'm going to be saving money up to get it done. The rest of my family will help financially and physically. My uncle will help design the house with me.
With this I'm going to own the house, pay the bills and run everything that happens. Basically it's a summer home for my family, but an actual home for me, my grandparents and my girlfriend. This is a secret to her of course.
Now back to you guys. (which I've gone off about twice now) What should I add to this two story, house? I mean it's in planning stages now and I have the go ahead to add ideas. (The W/C's and Bathrooms already got greenlit).
So go ahead Southperry. Give me your ideas.
