We’ve rounded up some of the most stunning home exteriors that’ll have you wanting to move in—and may even inspire you to up your own home’s curb appeal.

Engineered Exterior Trim

Engineered Exterior Trim


Wood composite, plastic, and fiber-cement trim
products promise to hold paint better than solid wood.

More and more customers are insisting on low-maintenance exteriors, while
builders are facing rising prices for quality lumber. So when it comes time to
choose exterior trim, many builders are considering new engineered alternatives
to solid wood. Some builders may be looking for a lower-cost alternative to
clear cedar or redwood. Others may be willing to pay extra for a premium
product that promises to outlast wood. In all cases, builders are looking for
something that won’t need to be painted frequently.

There are a bewildering number of products available. These products can be
grouped into three general categories: engineered wood, fiber-cement, and
plastics. In general, engineered wood and fiber-cement are less expensive than
solid wood, and much less expensive than the plastics. Most of the plastic
trims cost 20 to 60

EXTERIOR ELEVATIONS

EXTERIOR
ELEVATIONS

 

The next
item in the set is the exterior
elevations. 
Every exterior wall
is shown on the elevations and generally is drawn at the same scale as the floor
plans (
= 1′-0″ is
common). Besides showing the overall picture of the exterior of the building,
the elevations are mainly used to key specific areas
to larger-scale details.

 

The
elevations show the materials drawn to scale, indicating doors, window
patterns, exterior grade, and mechanical penthouses, to name a few.  The building elevations are a bit like the
view seen from several hundred yards-an overall picture of the building rather
than specific details.  The materials
seen in the elevation can be delineated if it makes
the building read better.  Brick can be shown by drawing the horizontal brick joints.  Concrete can be drawn
by dotting the wall, wood by showing the joints, and windows by showing

When she’s not roasting terrible suburban homes on her blog McMansionHell, Kate Wagner studies architectural acoustics as a graduate student in the joint acoustics program at Johns Hopkins University and Peabody Conservatory. She’s worked extensively as a sound engineer, with expertise in recording engineering, product development, and research.

Thinking about redoing the exterior of your home after a bit of HGTV fever? While it’s unrealistic to expect architect-level work from people like your Aunt Sue, who wants to paint everything contractor gray in a fit of Fixer Upper passion, there are some common exterior mishaps that can easily be avoided. In fact, relatively simple exterior changes can breathe new life into a house, though it’s a fine line between CPR and suffocation. In the words of architect Mies van der Rohe: “God is in the details,” but, then again, so is the devil.

Exterior Design: Interior Decorating Color Ideas

For some people, fall might inspire visions of back-to-school, paring down and minimalist organization … but not us. We’re always looking for new, exciting places to draw inspiration from — just look at our past collabs, which include everyone from rockstars to the editors of legendary print publications.

In the spirit of fashion month, we looked to the bold, over-the-top beauty that’s dominating pop culture right now to create two distinct decor looks with items from our new fall collection. Then — and here’s the fun part — we shared our products and mood boards with makeup artist Viktorija Bowers and let her run wild with inspiration.
