Ideas for our architect

It's finally starting to happen!!! The architect has our rough drawings of the house plan, hubby and I have been working on and some pictures for exterior inspiration. Stone and stucco are de rigguer of our neighbourhood. There is a completely stone home next door, very beautiful and another stone and stucco getting built a few doors down. I have driven nearby neighbourhoods to get ideas (see Drive-by shooting blog entry) and have since found exterior designs that would fit into, and compliment, our neighbours homes. So here's the foot print we are starting with...
The bottom square on the left is our garage. The bit at the back is a family room that was added on 10 years ago. Here are the shots I gave the architect to be inspired by for exterior finishes - stone and cedar. Ours, of course, will be a smaller home. I love the finish with the white-trimmed and plentiful windows. Also, the white columns of the Porticos. I am DYING to see what he comes up with!!!
