Highlighting Archetectural Details

Sketch of the House façade

  1. The corner boards add finish to the house.
  2. Slightly curved decorative boards highlight the openings.
  3. Below the window sills, vertical panelling belies the overbearing effect of the roof by giving an illusion of height to the porch.
  4. Vertical boards (75 mm, or 5 inches thick) are installed on the corners of the house and on each side of the door and match corner boards. They are proportioned to accent the windows.
