The House

“When you see my house, it’s hard to believe that it’s a new build — the look is classic Craftsman, and it blends right in with our neighborhood’s older homes," says homeowner JJ Cantrell. "The big front porch makes it quintessentially Southern.”

Two types of siding turn the house into a standout: linear lap siding on the base of the house and the chimney, and shingle siding on the gable over the porch. Louvered vents skirting the porch add even more texture.

In the yard, a mix of taller plants — including Encore azaleas in front of the porch and a butterfly bush to the right — and shorter ones in front make the beds impressive and welcoming. “Since my house sits high up on a hill, I wanted the landscaping to feel like it was reaching out to the road to invite people in,” says JJ.
