Here is a picture of our exterior. For several reasons our house looks different than the house we are modifying.
1. Our house is set higher up, so you are looking up at the house
2. Our roof overhangs do not return to the house, so you can see up under them, creating the extra space between the top of our windows and the roof.
3. We think our windows might be a bit smaller than theirs – – this is not confirmed, just appears so.
In our plans we requested 24″ overhangs, but due to some bad communication and a on-the-spot decision by our builder our overhangs were reduced to 18″. We feel that the bigger overhang would have given our house more of the Bungalow/Craftsman look that we were going for, but it’s really too late to make them 24″.
Anyhoo, here are pictures of our house and the Lot 87 house. Any suggestions – awnings, pediments, trim boards, etc are welcome.
