Planning… (Getting the Details Right)

Getting the many small details right is absolutely critical to good design. Unfortunately, we see far too many homes (in all pricepoints) miss the mark. Here’s an example of a great window detail. We fashioned it after taking inspiration from a picture of a very old European cottage.  Note the shutters, which are correctly built and sized to look authentic (right size to cover window when closed, correct placement, hinges, etc.). A softly arched cottage window featuring true divided lite muntins, and artfully installed stonework add texture and “Old World” character. A well proportioned, simple yet elegant custom-built window box filled with flowers completes the look.

Getting all the little details right takes planning, knowledge, and the desire to go the extra mile, but the rewards will delight for many generations.
