Bryan Lowe says:

There are quite a few modifications here:  Increased length, window layout and design, flat roof, and so on.  Check out the original plans here. My build is here.  I’ve taken the designer out on my Escargot a couple of times, and spoken with him many other times.   While he approved of the modifications I did of increasing the height of the cabin, he really didn’t care for the lack of curve in my rub-rail along the side.   He thought it took away from the pretty lines.  I am sure Phil would be aghast at a few of the modifications here!   But… this looks like a very nice build with some nice owner added touches.  No idea on price  It is near Syracuse.
