Contest Brief

Hello All, "PLEASE READ carefully"
I did this design on freelancer before my house got flooded and now I am required to the raise the house 6 more feet
The original design was raised 4 feet, now we have to put a concrete slab above the ground of 2 feet and the garage for 8 feet " total 10" and then the house
on the left side, we have to go inward in the garage 4 feet to the allow more space for the cars" the left side would be cantilevered.
What I need three major things:
1. modify the straight stairs to make them elegant. You can make double and I don't want them straight. You can use your imagination and place plants, water falls, ...etc. You can also put more than one landing steps so it will not be continuous
2. put some fake windows or decoration on the raised section so it will blend with the house " I am talking about the garage section
3. on the left side, need to come with a nice idea for the cantilever section.

I uploaded the original sketchup file so your help

Updated July 1st
I have also no problem using natural stone at the front as accent if possible. It is an option

    Hi, The level from the edge of canopy to the floor level in the sketchup is 9.5 feet. In the jpg is 12' do we need to raise it or keep it 9.5 feet as in the sketchup drawing.

    Hello!
    Please specify:
    1) On the laterals facades have a ledges as I see in 3d SketchUp model, but on the AutoCad floorplan those facades in a straight line.
    Which of this versions is right?
    2) So, if 3d model is right, then the ledge on the left side would be cantilevered with depth 4 feet like in your descriptions, but what about right side facade? Just prolong this wall constuction to the ground?
    3) Not quite clear about garage: you'll be using a space inside left section or outside?
    4) 2 feet concrete slab will be a visible part of the basement floor or under the ground? It's about stairs hight - 8 or 10 feet from the ground to the main floor?
    5) Laterals facades haven't a windows - you want something on the basement floor or on the main floor or both?
    Thank you and kind regards!

    Hi, in order to get the elevation accurate on site - a cad drawing of the same is super essential. Wondering if you can upload that as well - only then can one produce a design which is workable

      The cad file consists of a plan only. Is there a cad drawing available of the elevation ?
