A House with Multiple Personalities

Yesterday I posted a new house plan that we have developed.  The "Pine Gables" design features a main floor master and one level living.  The images below illustrate how the image can be adapted to nearly any aesthetic.  I would love to hear your preferences - so please take a look and vote your favorite. 

OPTION 1 - WHITE CLAPBOARD SIDING WITH SILVER METAL ROOF.   SIMPLE YET ELEGANT.

OPTION 2 - GREEN METAL ROOF WITH WOOD TONED CLAPBOARD SIDING AND TRIM.  A LITTLE MORE "WOODSY".

OPTION 3 - CEDAR SHINGLE ROOF AND SIDING WITH OFF WHITE TRIM.  A MORE EASTERN SEABOARD BEACH HOUSE AESTHETIC.

OPTION 4 - STONE CLADDING WITH PAINTED BOARD AND BATTEN IN THE GABLES GIVE THIS THE FEELING OF A MOUNTAIN HOME.

OPTION 5 - CONTRASTING THE DARK CLAPBOARD SIDING AGAINST THE WHITE BOARD AND BATTEN  AND THE RED ROOF GIVES THIS A SOPHISTICATED LOOK.

OPTION 6 - LOG COLUMNS AND LOG SIDING BENEATH BOARD AND BATTEN GABLES.  THE GREEN METAL ROOF COMPLETES THIS CONTEMPORARY LOG CABIN.

The studies above illustrate a good point when you are looking for a new home design.  If you find a plan that you like don't discount it because the exterior does not catch your eye.  It might be possible to modify the design to reflect your own aesthetic desires.
