The architectural detail of windows.
I love the architectural character added by the detailed design of the accent windows on this home.
I believe that windows can make our break any great home design plan.
Love the 3 windows in the peak.
Windows are the added character of the home's exterior.
They also add natural visual balance and warmth to a home both inside and out.
Windows are the main source for an abundance of natural light.
Every one of my ideas of the picture perfect dream cottage has an abundance of great windows.
The round windows in the peak.
I love the nod to a port hole with a round window in a peak.
Simple Single Square window in the peak.
That being said....
We have a window design dilemma!
Okay, so please try to work with me here.
Forget that the bushes are absolutely out of control and that that horrendous porch has got to go!
In due time my friends....in due time.
Please concentrate on the windows:)
Originally I shared that the
reclaimed obsessed restoration admirer inside me
wanted to save the architectural windows on the front of our home.
Well...um...now I think they look like crap!
(Please excuse me, there really was no easy way of saying that.)
So, now I have to decide the best way to handle this dilemma.
I need your help!
Here is what I am thinking...
1.) The Gable on the Left could be without a window.
We are thinking of using an accent siding on that gable.
We are also planning some extra details on the trim to add character, more on that later.
2.) The gable on the right could be a single small square window.
The problem with this option is that the peak is slightly off center from the
windows below and things like that drive Travis absolutely insane.
It really doesn't bother me. You???
3.) Use another window layout with small squares on the right gable.
Oh yeah...& that budget issue.
We have pretty much used up our window allowance.
So, whatever option we go with has to be affordable.
The accent windows do not necessarily need to open.
They are in the attic.
What are your thoughts???
Please share I really could use some good old
fashioned blogger to blogger DIY advice!
