    We have a winery in Israel in the Gallilee region (please look for Dalton, Israel,- on Google Earth) and are interested to build a hotel next to it of about 50-70 rooms on 2-3 levels. Your various designs look very attractive and we would like to know how much it would cost to build a structure of 50 units with another 12 spaces of various sizes for the public parts and service areas? A total of about 3,500 m2. We would like to see a combination of wood and stone as well as any material for the structure such as concrete and steel.

    While I applaud the architecture of these homes, I find it distasteful that a few are placed in what should be “off limits” with respect to the damage inflicted on the diversity of flora and fauna of the area; specifically the Seattle house and the floating Lake Huron house. Enough of the “I can outdo you…” attitude with the intrinsic, non-complimentary architecture that absolutely SCREAMS from the natural habitat within which it is placed. There are so many homes not occupied and for sale. Why do some continue to rip up virgin land to exact some fantasy which, by most accounts, is eventually sold.

  • I’ve got to i would be a little leary of all the so-called hype happening around solar. After taking a look at a variety of programs and get options we chose to make the leap. We ended up getting solar without the need of money down and now we immediatly started lowering costs the 1st month is was installed. I must say that the primary advantages of solar look like they’re real and I am happy we decide to move forward with it.
