Colonial / American vernacular revival house (urban/neotraditional/TND)

Dan T.
Here's another neotraditional Colonial house, suitable for a traditional neighborhood development (TND) or new urbanism development, or infill in an inner ring/streetcar suburb. The nested gable facade, common among new production houses in the Northeastern and Midwestern United States, doesn't go overboard as with many McMansions. It should be easy to swap out textures for the darker Craftsman look that's more common in the Denver/Front Range area and Pacific Northwest. As with most of my other models, this is an example of "four-sided design" - architectural details and fenestration are consistent on all sides. 3 bedrooms (all with walk-in closets), 2.5 baths, master suite, 2 flex rooms at the front of the ground floor, second floor laundry room, 9' /2.75 m ceilings on the ground floor, 8'/2.45 m ceilings on the second floor, and a decent front porch. The picky couple on House Hunters (she's a substitute teacher, he writes a blog about hipster beards, and their budget is $500,000) that saw the place said "ewwwww!", because the bedrooms have Berber carpet. They also didn't like that their neighbors were soooooo close, and that their precious 2-year old might fall down the stairs leading up from the great room. Yeah, I hate them too. I made this model for form-based zoning code illustration. All elevations are detailed, and there's interior floors, walls, ceilings, stairwells, and stairs. Sorry, but you won't find interior detail work. However, one of the contractors left something behind!
