So we have previously discovered that the back of the house is now at the front! This is yet to be confirmed by the local historian, however in my opinion there is no doubt about it. This has had a bit of an influence on the design, particularly in regards to the veranda out the back. The design in this concept is really going back to original.
Keeping the exposed rafter tails but cantilevering the trusses over the external wall frame to give the space and expanse required to give a really usable outdoor area.
