build me a home: exterior edition

29 October 2013

As you may know, we are in the process of building a home. (yikes! still makes me nervous typing that) We haven’t even broken ground yet, and are waiting for permits to go through. (taking FOREVER.) This week we needed to nail down our exterior options so those can get ordered and it’s going to be LOTS of decisions from here on out.

So, I am deciding to open up my inspiration vaults (aka secret boards on Pinterest and inspiration notebook) to let you see what I’m drawing from. Now, these pictures are beautiful, awesome, everything I could ever want, but I’m also finding out can cost LOTS of money. And we are on a budget and really have to think about what to invest in now, what to wait on, or omit from the dream plan. I still love to look and be inspired though…

Dun da da dun: here they are! My favorite exteriors:

Would it be fair to say I adore dormer windows, white trim, and classic/cottage styles? And, I notice these all have beautiful old trees which we definitely won’t have right away.

What do you think? Which one would you pick to move into?
