Exterior Home Design Ideas – House Plans and More

   by Kimberly Blackford

As a homeowner, you know that a house is simply the building where you live.

It is structurally sound, efficient and does its job. However, your home is so much more. It’s where you invite your friends and family to join in making new memories. Your home is infused with your personality, style, and charm. It is so much more than a house.


When building a new house it is important to incorporate those home qualities right from the start. Interior design is often overrun with your personal taste, while the outer appearance fades to the back of your mind. Exterior design is a fantastic opportunity to introduce your personal preferences to the entire neighborhood, reminding neighbors that you are building a home inside and out.

Custom Home Design: Exterior Finishing and Design Ideas

Now that the rough-ins stage is completed, it is important to have a beautiful appearance on the outside of your custom home. Finding exterior finishing that is both functional and aesthetically pleasing is the key to custom home design. Do you need siding, and if so, what type? Ask yourself what kind of trim you want. How will it fair in the climate of the custom home?

How Two Children Are Keeping Their Father’s Design Legacy Alive

IN 1933, THE JAPANESE philosopher and art historian Soetsu Yanagi published an essay, “What Is Folk Craft?,” that would become a foundational text of the mingei (folk craft) movement that reshaped Japanese aesthetics in the mid-20th century. In his writing, Yanagi proposed a revindication of “a provincial industry” of handmade utilitarian objects that are “indispensable to the daily life of ordinary people, that are used in commonplace settings, that are produced in large numbers, and that are inexpensive.” He felt these folk crafts were fundamental to the restoration of beauty in a world drifting toward soulless mechanization. The people who made them, he wrote, “have entered the way of salvation through unconscious faith.
