A holiday drive to the Carolinas, offered a plethora of beautiful houses for inspiration. While certainly not the largest (or widest!) or imposing house we saw in Charleston, this one nonetheless impressed me with it's proportions and simple adornment.
Notice the shutters done right, the front door with its transom and canopy, and the pleasing texture of the siding.
Strolling through this neighbourhood had me wondering why our new housing developments can be so poorly planned and full of absolutely ugly houses... we only have to look back to find our inspiration.
Anyone know of any narrow lots available?
