Craftsman is my style and I designed this home from childhood memories of those similar in my part of NC. It is a mix of craftsman, cottage, and Moravian. The exterior is white brick, cedar siding in cypress color, and rock. It's a 4 bedroom 3 1/2 bath and approximately 2,500 square feet. It has a large porches on the front and back. The back is screened and there is a private porch off the master bedroom. We moved in March 08.
I designed this home and the landscaping. The landscaping is still a work in progress. I'm known for having a different theme in the front gardens every season. It is a labor of love.
This is a craftsman home that I designed inside and out. I like big porches. To the far right is a private master porch including swing. I have swings on all the porches. The middle screened is off the family room. Love to open my french doors to this porch and let the outdoors in. We moved in April 1st 08 so I'm still working on the landscaping.
I like this look but think that I will be going back to the summer 08 look with my Purple Fountain Grass as a focus. This is summer 09
