Designing the House: Form

I mentioned in my previous post that we created a “dream home” PDF and passed it to a local architect. She is currently working on a floorpan for us and we are very excited to see what she comes up with.

I am sharing the contents of that document here over a series of posts. The following is what we included in the pages about the house shape(s) that appeal to us. Some of the examples below were also chosen because of exterior finishes we like.

Dash Landing

Valley Farmhouse

Traditional Colonial
  • Colonial single saltbox style, connector
  • Mixed materials–brick, clapboard, cedar shake

Camp Stew

More examples we like:As you can see, we are very much drawn to traditional farmhouses, but updated with modern windows and finishing materials. We like relatively small houses and simple shapes.

Up next, we go inside our dream house! To the most important room in the house….the mudroom! 😉
