Even though (as has been pointed put to me) most architects tend to like the same style, it is unreal how close this is to what we want...
Dark exterior siding
One side of house panels of glass and solid panels & parapet roof concealing sloped roof (this was Marc's original idea for our roof)
Concrete floors, white interior, open layout
Hallway office, sliding doors, tall storage
Big wall of full-height cabinets blending into the kitchen
Free-standing tub in tiled room.
This is several versions of a prefab house in Australia by Intermode, an Australian modular housing company. I originally saw it here. http://www.desiretoinspire.net/blog/2013/8/1/intermode.html
While prefab isn't IMO the best solution of places like Asheville like usually require a lot of site work, I've always been a huge fan of "kit of parts" architecture.
Maybe we should just sent this post to the contractor...
