House Preview

We're almost done finalizing the plan and we think the front elevation is finalized. Here is a little rendering Tom put together. I don't know about you but I'm excited. :)

We're going with an Arts & Crafts (Craftsman) look with some Timber Home accents. Tom's dream is to have a timber framed home, so we're adding a few things that give it that look as well. In particular, the entry way and the garage doors. We also plan to have some wood beams, headers and posts somewhere on the inside as well. 

Colors and stone selection is still not finalized but the basic layout is final. Tom and I both like this color combo which is very similar to what he designed. 

Mineral Quarry
James Hardie Top Color Combinations
Main Body: Monterey Taupe
Second Body: Timber Bark
Trim: Cobblestone

Accent: Red, Green, Blues, and Browns of various shades will all work
When in doubt, this combination is foolproof. It offers a stronger contrast between its neutral body colors, Monterey Taupe and Timber Bark, but not too much because of the softer shade, Cobblestone, for the trim. This combination is great with any landscaping color palette, from strong reds, soft pinks and vibrant rusts.

I love the look and can't wait to be sitting in a rocker on the front porch. :)
