I'm new, hubby is sick of me, would love some opinions :)

For what it's worth, I like the first facade pic too - the glass to the roof line and the open balcony.

Casa2, I'm concerned that the overhead cupboards might look odd if they're 970 in height. Most display homes I have seen have the cupboards around 800-850. If I get…
