Inspired by the craft of building and architecture
Friday, July 26, 2013
This cottage is fresh. Just check the setting/view above. I sometimes feel like the wraparound porch can take away from the main house but with such a kickass setting you really can't go wrong here. It comes across a little simplistic but they do transform the vibe with the barrel roof on the porch. I also like the way the tight lines in the railing and roof play off of one another. And finally to top it off, the rustic qualities of the stone work that seamlessly tie the patio to the wall and steps.
I'm a 3rd generation home builder and remodeler in Birmingham, Michigan. I have a passion for the way things were back when we started Capaldi Building in 1945. Back when homes were literally built from scratch and guys ate homemade sandwiches out of tin lunch pails. The art and craft of building is something that inspires me every day. I hope that this blog inspires more people to take pride in the space they call home.
