How to pick size for exterior Fypon dentil molding?

threeapplesMay 22, 2012

Fypon's site offers several options, but I have no idea how to determine which is the best scale for our house. Any suggestions how to go about doing this? thanks.

I would defer to your architect on this one! There is much that is tricky about that - size/scale etc.

Hi,
Found a textbook on the subject of classical proportioning online.

I would also consider getting a copy of

Get Your House Right by Marianne Cusato et al.
with forward by H.R.H. Prince of Wales (so it must be good)

It's full of examples of how to get classical detailing right.

Thanks, we have that book and it was awesome when designing our house, but it got packed away by accident. I'll have to search for it. Thanks for reminding me!!!
