External Style and Appearance
Once the buyer has determined the characteristics and importance of
each of these areas it is time to combine them in a layout. The layout
should allow for the easy flow between areas that is so important.
There is virtually no limit to what can be achieved in today’s
reality. What we could not have been comprehended a short while ago is
easily done today. This allows the buyer unbelievable flexibility in
designing the exterior of the home.
Today’s technology allows us to place virtually any façade on any
layout without compromising much of either aspect. Regardless of the
layout, it is usually possible to apply any given style to a façade.
The character of the home is defined by its external style and
appearance. If the style of the home is French Provincial then the
materials used to finish the exterior should lend support to that
style. Use of arched windows and stucco with sweeping rooflines for
example will help create the look that the buyer is looking for.
There are far too many styles and far too many time periods to choose
from to adequately analyse on this site. If a buyer would like a
two-story, French, 18th century, Victorian, Classic cottage he more
than likely would know it without having to determine it here on this
For the sake of attributing an exterior to the layout that the buyer
has developed we shall concentrate solely on the materials available.
Once the material has been selected, there remain many features
that are very important.
