Wish I was in Tennessee - Matt thank you for your prompt reply. If I have the opportunity in the future to build another house I will definitely keep you in mind. At the moment we are about to start a house with a large lot but unfortunately it has a protected riparian area at the back of the lot which means that we can build a wide house at this time but the depth, unfortunately is limited. Your home is beautiful but I am positivre that the depth would be far too great. Was really admiring the colors that you have used though. Thanks again, Maureen.

(if it isn't already designed yet) don't forget that if you want a traditional scale of this house but need to make it wide, then break up the mass by having a separate, secondary mass adjacent to the house. The white painted brick classic revival house on my houzz site does this, for example. Also - I forget if this house has painted brick or if it is white brick, but you have a healthier wall with less chance for trapping moisture in it if you do not paint the brick. Brick likes to breathe. Regards, Matt

also i think 2 trim colors are important. on the house you like the 2nd trim color is the factory color of the windows. I would have perhaps done a 1 tone difference b/w brackets to soffit, and column capitals to columns. subtle things like that can help.

Thank you, Maureen. Believe it or not, I had nothing to do with the color selection, I left it completely up to the interior designer who made an outstanding color choice. I don't have contact with her now. I would take your laptop into Sherwin Williams and you could get it matched from the picture. And of course if you want a new house that looks like this one, I could fix you right up! Good luck - Matt
