Heating and cooling bills would be very high.
The walls of the shower will be Carrara then just the floors of the bathroom. It is a very small footprint (~20sq/ft) so I figured I would just carry the pattern through. I could always switch to Calacatta for a lighter color which would then tie into the mosaic on the wall. It really depends on the lot of marble we get if it tends to be more whites and less grays otherwise it could get a little too gray then I would agree with you.
I think adding some Calacatta would make it even more busy. But maybe I'm not imagining what you're imagining. And I tend to like very plain bathrooms. So I'm probably just biased.
I agree. Some mature trees would be a big selling point for me. I can't understand why people take nice wooded lots, then clear cut them and build. My dad's from Maine and I see that all the time there.
Re. the garage, what struck me is how prominent it is from the front. I like garages on the side or back, ideally.
Good catch on the popcorn ceilings, Pio. That was the first thing we had taken out. But ours had asbestos. I'm guessing this stuff was sprayed after that era. Maybe they wanted it for sound reduction.
