Neither the original house nor Cottage has any detail on the exterior corners.
When the additions to the house were added the architect had designed exterior corner boards to the new building.
I suggested the Cottage might like to have the same detail to disguise some of the chipped shingles on the front façade corners.
Our carpenter added them yesterday.
Every detail has added to the quaintness of the Cottage.
The tenant liked the corner boards so much she has decided to finish the look with corner boards on the 2 rear (mostly unseen) corners as well.
Do you have a favorite detail that says “house” to you?
