There Can Be Only One
A unique ceiling for a home that was designed to allow
natural lighting, ventilation, and a feature loft and light
So, you’re designing a new house or addition and you’re on a tight budget. Does this mean you’re stuck building the same bland box as everyone else, maximizing your space and minimizing your detail and whimsy? I’d argue, no, you just have to be careful. Everyone has enough in their budget for at least one unique feature and here’s why. Spending the money to do one unusual, unique, inventive, or beautiful thing will not cost you more in design fees (or at least it shouldn’t, trust me, we get bored of doing boring boxes, we’d love the challenge of doing something unique on every project) and it doesn’t have to cost you more in construction costs, but when the time comes to sell, having that feature will help you stand out from a crowd and be memorable.
