I really love these tones and textures!!!
windows, simplicity, asymmetry
parts of the right half , the brown roof the ~white walls, the wood eaves. Not the dormers or the dripping black lines (?)
shape and simplicity. don't want shingle siding. asymmetry
note barn doors closing off wall of doors (possibly for east garden facing doors), security? weather? Overall too busy and don't like window style.
very nice. wood eaves? tin roof? wood windows simple. Like the gable end view from the street. Don't like bottom window. Also a bit too modern.
simplicity. not a fan of shutters.
Way too rustic , like simple window headers and footers.
too symmetrical, but interesting simple window borders.
Very nice simplicity overall. simple detail at base of windows nice.
way too busy, but nice if stripped down.. Don't like the doors and adjacent windows
Windows look cheap. like the stone step entrance with the crispness of the siding. and like simple shape.
very nice simplicity in design but too many materials and colors for what we are looking for
Painted brick might also work. like the beams over the windows, not the shutters or overall business of style. I think I mostly like the simple garage form!
Nice simple shaping of main building. note corner window section on lower left.
needs more windows...
A grey brick? and brown shingles?
Too formal? but nice simple shape.
California gold slate
angled windows over door , also create a bit of cover
Thinking about this style dormers for the side of the house facing the garden? (minus the blue trim ) Instead of regular dormers? Eliminates the need for the metal roof ? , or at least it is less noticeable because they are on the sides? fewer noticeable materials.
Here the window is below the roof line and the "dormer" above. For the side facing the garden
~dormer on the left, the top of the window is at the roof line (less loss of head space in the room0.
~dormer on the left is minimally defined by a roof extrusion.
another way to define the side of the house- without true dormers. (minus the lacy trim and pinkness!)
