The one removed Thom involved a corner, and cut back on interior space. The engineer on this project had already culled it...but I agree, it looks cool, and I don't think it would be a big deal including it.I think the cantilever you removed added character to the front elevation. It seems that cantilevering off the front should not have been that difficult.
That will be a really nice project if you can land it. Hopefully the customer is up for the cost.
