Lately, there have been a lot of articles on-line about the timelessness of the Tudor style.
(Houses, not armor. Though I did see Henry VIII's armor at the Metropolitan Museum...he was a large dude, for his time.)
Our neighborhood has a good selection of Tudor-style homes. I personally love them (can't afford them, though). They are mostly 1 1/2 or 2 story and have great proportions. I particularly love the banks of windows (and love them even more if they are casement, like the ones we got from Pella a few years ago).
Many of the Tudors in out 'hood have nice little outdoor nooks and crannies. I am particularly interested in them because of all the landscaping and hardscaping we have yet to do here at Brandywine. Here's a little taste:
Eventually, we are going to have to put a garage in place of our carport...or, if the finances won't permit, we'll just replace the carport. I hope to be able to create an area similar to the one above as a transition from the side of the house to the back.
Or I might just forget about all the dang projects and move to the home.
