Howdy everyone!

Instead of sleeping last night I toyed around with a design for a construction site and I came up with this template:
http://www.kocisz.com/construction/
It's just a mock-up page but I'd really like to hear what you guys think about the layout itself. Any feedback will be greatly appreciated!

Thanks in advance!

I like the header, but I think its too blue. And there are too many gradients...I would keep the one in the content area and ditch the bg one. Its nice and valid though. This content pictures are really good but theres too much blue.

And on that page I think there is too much text...cut it down a little (its a sample but it needs to be shorter:D).

Otherwise...good job...its always nice to see valid strict XHTML.

Yeah, very blue. lol. The header image/animation loads slowly for me, even on refresh, so it looks like it's a broken image, and then all of the sudden...it loads. Overall, good though.

It is indeed pretty darn blue. I think I like it though.
The font bugs me but that's personal choice.

Also, although the layout of the photos is interesting, it throws me off balance, mentally. Doesn't say much for my mental stability but there it is.

Really like the header.

I think that there are too much blue. I think, that it will be better to add yellow to blue or just mix blue with its hues.

I really like it. I agree with those that think there's too much blue, though. You could probably offset that pretty easily with a different background image. All in all, though, very nice and a good layout and header image.

I like it, the header took a little too long to load, but cant be helped! I'm gonna go against the rest and say the blue looks fine, ties everything in well. Perhaps you could change the shade of it though, the blue in the header on the left, the colour of the windows. Thats a nice blue! Good job though, professional, modern and tidy!

Have to agree with everyone, the design layout is very good, but the colours hurt my eyes. I could not spend more that a minute or 2 looking at it.

I think it looks nice. The header is kind of blue but I don't know what you changed since I haven't saw this site before. I'll go into little details of the site. Hope you don't mind. I do that sometimes.

MINUS: Slow loading header. Some people use slow computer and internet connection.
PLUS: Into construction
IDEA: Make the links workable in the template

MINUS: Clash with the white text on the very blue background up on top of the content.
PLUS: Valide XHTML Strict and CSS

MINUS: Has some table codes :lol:
PLUS: Nice original design.
IDEA: Convert the side completely into CSS and use DIVS throughout the site.

Not much, a little bit of mine review.

The header is great but I think it took to long o load. The layout is clean. The background of the body could be a different color. Navigation, just a tad amatuerish.

I would have to say I dont know if a website can be too blue if it is done right.

Overall I would give it a 7 out of 10
