Exterior Of Home
My husband and I, first-time home builders, collaborated on a home design, and I am unsure about the exterior. I do like the interior.
It has been suggested that we use stone on the middle part of the house, shake on the dog trots, shake on the windows, and painted brick on the rest. I am seriously considering using all stone and shake, but that can be expensive. I just don't want it to look ugly.
Also, the dogtrots have turned into actual rooms, therefore, we are considering bringing up the pitch on those roofs. My husband loves the dogtrot rooms, I on the other hand am afraid they are going to look "weird".
Lastly, the lower windows by the front door. Should they be larger, should they be French Doors? Any suggestions?
And the windows on the garage front look lower than the rest of the windows on the lower level. Is that normal? Would another type of window look good there?
Any ideas?? Thanks so much!!
