roof and exteriors
not gable over bump out room going into gable like our plan
shed into gable
shed into shed, shallower off long gable !
two window gables on high posted cape
large gable dormers in gable roof
consider "duitch" gable as the sunroom location. the other roofs have dormers, and then there is the arch that would lead under the pergola
kitchen window ?
notice tiny shed going into the gable roof. if the tiny shed has more of a face, it would simply allow for bigger windows on the shed. but it looks like it works.
the four small windows could be good on the front of BR wing, especially if i have similar windows in kitchen
why two pitches on cross gable? needed to meet shed ?
entry and gable treatment + +
window trim style, + +
wainscoting fits with exterior
here it is, bi and small, also mixed with shingles
one of those pointed roof sections
spread the three pieces and it it is ours
duplicate of house with skirtboard. does it make it look too traditional ? ? ?
shakes with B & B again. with lighter colors it would not look rustic
our cape with sheds, B & B siding, and gable next to it. gable also has gable across it, on what is our bedroom wing
B & B main house, sheds in shakes.
example of exterior trim style on B & B
NOT GOOD LOOKING. need to avoid this result. possibly a narrow 2 story with B & B is what makes it unattractive - or maybe too symmetrical ? ?
something looks good here. double gable with metal roof, while main house is shingles on roof, and i think as siding. the B & B section also has better window and trim look, suggesting vaulted ceiling inside
lots of neat things going on
how about this little touch ? !
lighted too !
piece of roof breaking up first from second floor is great touch
strong entry treatment, but posts could be better. notice the shingled returns like Pete drew on one exterior
the relationship of right gable to connection where shed is and then over to gable over entry is basically the relationship of ours
close-up of window
elements: small sheds, connector of glass, popped out windows or "hats"
if we moved the office to a spot over the foyer, the front hip could be OK for just a bath
blow this up ?
would a boston hip to the front of main house, and a lower pitch, work with a hip on BR wing and simple roof on connector??
what about three full hips, pointed +/- at declining heights from main, to connector, finally to BR wing? what about sunroom ? ?
i think this softens the straightness of the four square home. compare to cape with sheds
agaln, a pitched roof on sides of gable over first floor
front version of last one
is that little cupola (maybe one window) OK for connector ? ?
mix of b 7 b and shingle on side
