Goal:
To build a non traditional home that is
 energy efficient and gives maximum protection from the tornados.

My wife and I are looking to build a 3000 to 5000 square foot home, that is similar in design to 2010 Studios. stage one. We really like the openness of the studio and the north facing windows. I have enclosed rough drawings and 3D rendering of our initial idea floor plan along with pictures of other homes we like.  We are not looking for a "super polished" Modern Home, more like Industrial / Modern. We like exposed concrete, electrical conduit, and HVAC. My wife runs a non profit animal rescue and there is a good chance the living room or garage might become a temporary home for animals in need.  My design is flexible and I'm open to alternative materials.
