It’s been almost a year since I purchased the land for the next ‘House That A-M Built’. I have a good tenant in the current property on the block so I have let him be and taken a breather from planning … seeing the hardest part is done … finding the land!
I am constantly revisiting my elevation plans and building on them. This beauty, that I photographed when I was in the Hamptons, has just reinforced the front elevation I have in mind. I knew I would find inspiration when I was there! That iPhone of mine got a serious workout.
I am going to have some sort of bay window thing happening at the front like this, with an L shaped porch wrapping around to the right. I’ll be having a few more lights in my windows though. I am a sucker for a 4 x 1! … or a 4 light x 4 light. I’ll take either. And as much as I love the roof line here, I will be doing the gable thing to be mindful of costs and to fit in with the city character code that I have to abide by. I do so love the colours and the trims …. and those gorgeous decorative eaves. Sigh.
Just perfection. In my eyes anyway.
