When the couple bought a plot two streets away from their parents, they started with the idea of a house in a timber framing style. But the chosen "Butterfly" model turned out to be too big for their 1000 square meters plot.
Then the couple entered the most interesting and lengthy stage, which Evgeny calls "planning". Since Evgeny is professionally engaged in facades, there are many architects in his environment. Drawing a friend's house - what could be more exciting. "The designing often ended in the morning," Evgeny recalls. At some point, Marina gently hinted to her husband that it looked like sabotage, because a year had already passed during the discussion at home. A young architect was chosen, and the project was commissioned to him.
"When you start designing, an incredible need for beauty opens up in you," Evgeny says. — We had a very beautiful project: L-shaped, with a roof from one fence to another, with an inner yard. The facade is lined with bricks. There were columns at the entrance, and looking at each one, you could say - this is one year of a child's education somewhere far away, and this is the second year." From an architectural point of view, everything was wonderful, but such a house should stand in an appropriate environment, the couple believes. Around their plot there are many cottages of 400-800 sq. m., built in the 00's in the style of that time. Each of these houses was built for five or six years. In addition to the fact that it's just a long time, the turbulent situation in the country affects the house under construction, when it is impossible to predict what the financial situation will be in a couple of years.
