These two homes are closer to what our home will actually be shaped like, since we are building a one level with a finished (someday) basement. The above home is lovely, but a little too monochromatic for us. We will have a similar dormer, centered above the entrance.
This home sits in the middle of (literally) some of the most lovely orchards. If you are in Southern Illinois, you may have noticed it just off of Route 127 south. This picture, like so many of mine lately, was a quick snap taken roadside. So it doesn't give the wooden front entrance justice. But we love the wooden posts and door.
