10. Projecting porch or doorway
This is an example of an oreil window. They are similar to bay windows, but notice that they don't extend to the base of the building, but rather tuck back in- with just the window nook protruding from the architecture of the building.
In this home, notice the high pitched roofs, sharp gables, small window panes and half timber construction.
Here is a nice close up of the half timber construction. Today, the half timber style is simply cosmetic, rather than structural. They don't fool anyone...
Here you see high pitched gables, small window panes and half timber construction.
Here is another quintessential example- small window panes, classic color combination of half timber construction, a Tudor arch over the doorway, and a protruding second story with rambling design.
When I refer to clustered of buttressed chimneys- I am referring to chimneys like those in the photo to the left. The clustered chimneys are the multiple clusters that you see. What I mean buy buttressing is the stepped design of the trunk of the chimney.
Here is a close up of what I referred to as a second story overhang or jetty. Also shown here is a classic diamond shape small paned window and Tudor arched doorway.
Here is a contemporary example of half timber construction- I include it as it is a less traditional color pallet, yet still a very good example- incorporating the half timber brick construction, sharp gables, and bay windows.
Here is a close up of the Tudor arch. Notice the subtle pitch at the top?
Here is another Tudor arch- this time found in the door.
