Houzz is the new way to design your home.
Exteriors, Architecture Elevations
Slip sliding into retirement...
Not one big rectangle, neat windows at the top w/o gable (pointy).
Even though more modern, clean lines, different building depths, window heights (out of the box)
Cottage style that we really like
Would be really cool to marry a cottage/bungalow/arts&crafts or farmhouse (simpler) look on the front, with a more modern look at the back!!
Texas Hill Country facade for sure! Don't know if we could afford the stone??
Metal roof and stucco looks great together, and this is another fave look in the hill country.
Looks like a vacation house, not so boringly rectangular, plus with a neat breezeway between another section of the house -- could be what we do between the owner's retreat and house.
Widow's Peak on top for the view? Like a neat sitting area/crow's nest on top for the views!!
Like the angles, clean lines!
Like the windows/doors and the patio area
Wouldn't mind the rear looking like this...
These dormers are neat...
Reminds us of what we received, but closer to what we like...
Closer to the first one, but really like this version. Know windows in front couldn't be this tall...
Great pool with hot tub, "waterfall", and multiple steps in the pool
Did I double enter? Anyway, like this one a bunch! Wimberley TX by Burleson Design Group
Like this blend of rock and wood and galvanized metal, and the inclusion of the rain cistern. Makes it look like an old rock house with additions...
Thanks to the greenery and the painted wall next to it, this traditional cistern almost, but not quite, hides in plain sight. The weathered wood is another way to help this blend into the space
Farmhouse style with the appearance of a dogtrot porch beyond the front door. Also large slate used for walkway!
Seems like nice way to cover from carport to casa, but too expensive?
Thought it would be more like this, but would like to add wiring in order to create a "wall" of creeping vines to add color and some protection from inclement weather.
Walkway from carport to house idea...would also want a trellis added to include growing vines up and over the top.
MUCH closer to what I've imagined for a trellis and semi-covered walkway from carport. “This simple long pergola of 4x4s could be incorporated lessen summer heat. Structure for vines to grow on and shade to side of house.
Of course I'd really love this. Always thought would be neat to have a garden area surrounded by "false" walls and windows. This could also incorporate an outdoor mudroom area. Keep critters out of plants, etc.
Another version of a pergola and trellis for area between carport and casa...
Will look good on the street side for a covered walk from carport to casa.
Create another screened in area for space between carport and casa?
Sunroom/solarium as connector between carport and casa? Depends on size!@
Create a screened breezeway instead as walkway from carport?
