More random notes from the design guidelines:
"To design buildings that seem to "grow out" of the site by responding to the climate, landforms, and native landscape."
"To create buildings that have a strong indoor/outdoor relationship."
General guide (heated and air conditioned footage)
Less than .50 acres: 4000 sf
.50 to .75: 5000 sf
.75 to 1 acre: 5500 sf
1 to 1.5 acres: 7000 sf
1.5 to 2 acres and up: case by case
I find that interesting, as our 4200 sf home sits on 1.5 acres. To imagine it 75% bigger just seems huge.
Max building height (two story): 35 feet from natural grade to highest point on roof
Basic roof lines should not extend more than 5 feet beyond the tree canopy on lots with major trees (8 inch diameter base or more) Feature elements (towers) may exceed height restrictions with written approval of DRC.
