Thoughts on rendering?
The drafters emailed me the initial renderings on the house today. They haven't put in the siding type yet, because I'm not sure yet what to do.
Generally going with a prairie style. If I just did vinyl lapboard siding, would that work? We might need to do a stone apron around the front to satisfy local covenants, but I'm not really a fan of that, and hoping if we did stone on the porch (where it belongs) that would satisfy the stone on front requirement.
After seeing whallyden's house, I thought about putting a couple of bumpouts, which certainly add interest, but they also add a lot of cost.
Would the non-bumpout version, with lapboard siding, look too plain? Thoughts on how to spiff up this house? Does the prairie style work? I might have to go back to a neo-colonial style, but it does not fit in very well with my neighborhood.
Thanks for any thoughts!
