Building our West TX Dream Home - Need Advice on Front Windows
Shelly Castille
February 24, 2013 in Design Dilemma
We're finally realizing our dream and building our home in West Texas. The front of the house faces east and a view of a small mountain range. I'm having trouble with the windows - solid glass, panes on the bottom only, full pane dividers (I don't know what you call them) . . . and how to arrange the windows - evenly spaced? Grouped? Only 2 large trapezoids on top? FYI, the front gable extends out over an 8 ft porch. Oh and the front will be brick, with a rustic look. Hoping for cedar posts. So, next question - white vinyl windows, or dark colored?

Shelly, if your going for a more rustic look I would do darker windows. It won't look like every other home. I would stick with evenly spaced windows to give symmetry. You could also incorporate some elderado stone maybe around the windows or doors that would give it texture and a special touch. good luck with your dream!

Whole wall of windows...but could you do a double front door to make a dramatic entrance? Can the bedroom windows be wider as well? Dont forget skylights.

@JWinteriors - those windows on the right are in the garage. I realize that wider ones would probably look better, but budget wise, we may have to give up on that.
