A House in a Hill

When I designed the first story of this house I was thinking about the advantages (and disadvantages) of underground houses. While not actually underground, this house is set in a hillside for the warmth, so useful in this cold climate I live in, while still being open on three sides for plenty of light.
What did I end up liking the best about this plan? The outside porches and the way it seems all tucked away! The thing I liked least was the huge long living room at the end but that would be very nice for parties…
