Barnes home rough draft.

My brother's home has been the first project I've worked on since I've arrived in Canada. The following is a rough draft of my design I'm recommending.

This first image shows the front yard. North is to the right and the yard is in shade until about 11am or noon.

This image is taken from the house looking east towards the garage.
