IN­TER­COASTAL CAROLINA – OR­CHID IV

Timber Home Living - - Drawing Board -

The in­ter­coastal wa­ter­way and river front liv­ing in the coastal ar­eas of North and South Carolina cre­ate an op­por­tu­nity to blend tra­di­tional water­front and in­land ar­chi­tec­tural styles. This style is also in­ter­change­able with up­coun­try Caribbean-style homes. Char­ac­ter­is­tic themes are the blend­ing of Colo­nial English in­flu­ences with trop­i­cal con­sid­er­a­tions. As­pects of this ap­proach in­clude light col­ors, di­vided win­dows, pro­vin­cial mass­ing shapes and in­creased de­tail on the smaller el­e­ments.

The Or­chid IV starts with the De­coy floor plan with al­tered ex­te­rior wall fa­cades and roof shapes to cre­ate a sim­pler, more Colo­nial look. Other defin­ing com­po­nents are cedar shin­gles that cover the ex­te­rior for a clas­sic coastal feel, win­dows and trim painted white, clas­sic win­dow shapes with true di­vides, ex­posed rafter tails, finials at gable peaks, an awning roof over the garage door and shin­gle roof­ing.
