Now about my likes and dislikes.
I prefer spatious living areas and high ceilings, I do spend a great deal of time in the kitchen, and I would like to incorporate it into the main living area. I would say I like modern style houses and lofts but I do not like the modern decoration. I do think that there might be some modern furniture I might like, just not everywhere. Minimalist aproaches are also not my taste. I would like to have different elevations in more than one room.
The good thing is that I am proficient in using CAD programs.
Are there any general architecture books that anyone could recommend? Maybe some web links?
Comments and advice are more than welcome.
