Mortar oozing out from between the bricks gives a house the old world look. Some stone could be added for contrast. Distressed shutters dress the windows in an old world color to compliment the mortar. A front door that makes you think you are entering a castle will add to that look. This looks great on a two-story house but how will it look on a ranch house?
The garage should be entered from either side or the back. A three-car garage would be great so I can have enough space for an atv/ golf cart to drive around my ranch.
Plenty of windows will open the house to natural light. I’m like God when He said light be. I love light. Skylights can also add natural light.
The house needs to face north or south. If you’d ask me why I couldn’t tell you. That’s just what I decided years ago and both of my other homes were situated on the land that way.
This home needs a little more than the run of the mill driveway. A straight concrete drive will not work. A brick circular drive will set the house off. With the circular brick drive the sidewalk needs to be brick also.
I can see my big dream coming together. Maybe the look I described doesn’t all go together. I’m for starting a new trend.
I’m sure there are a lot more details that would come to mind as I dream more.
