    My builder and the company doing our gutters both called mine an "eyebrow?"

    This is an old post, but I think that roof style is called a box gable and that part of the roof is is called a pent roof. A pent roof is a simple shed roof that acts as a small overhang on the face of a wall that is separate from the main roof, so I'm not quite sure if this is the right term. I've also seen this style called an extended eave return, so you could call it the extended eave return roof.

    I've looked around online to see if I could find a good definition, but didn't find much. This blog post is rather handy though: http://reubenscube.net/2010/03/cornice-and-eave-returns-from-my-neighborhood/

    BTW, an eyebrow dormer is a little half-moon dormer that is usually set fairly high up the roof as sort of an accent, esp. on Queen Anne and Craftsman houses.

      How is this all relevant to the abodes of today? Here you can see a simplified interpretation of classical architecture. There are four very simple square columns, and pilasters against the wall, each with a base and a capital. Two flat bands above the capitals imply an architrave and a frieze, while the trimmed fascia gives us the cornice. The gable face provides the basic pediment.

      Houzz added this to PorticoJun 5, 2012

      Greek porticoes had unique names depending on how many columns were used. This one is tetrastyle, meaning it has four columns. While porticoes are often seen on larger homes, they can also work well on smaller structures.

      Between Naps on the Porch added this to Are Plantation Shutters the Right Choice for Your Windows?Nov 9, 2010

      I love the uniform look when all the windows on the front of a home have plantation shutters. Great curb appeal! If you want to soften the look of your shutters in some rooms, such as bedrooms, feel free to add drapes or a valance on top of your shutters. They’ll give you all the sun control and privacy you need and leave you free to add whatever decorative treatments you like.Do you have plantation shutters in your home? If so, have you added fabric treatments on top or do you like the look of shutters alone?
