Ideas for Shingle Style construction?
We're building a shingle style house in an area of nice new homes of varying architecture and on a golf course. We'd love for our house to look like they built the course up around it instead of just like another new home, so I'm looking for ideas to make a new house look old, both on the exterior as well as the interior. For example, one idea was to get the old was to transplant Vanhoutte spirea for the front like this one:
The house will have an open floor plan, however, so I guess I'm looking for it to look like an old house that was redone while keeping with the original architectural feel of the house. As I say that, it sounds confusing. Am I on the right track here and does this make any sense?
