Architectural Details

I have been undecided about what types of materials and the colours to use on the exterior decoration but after abit of research in a book on architecture I've begun to work on parts....

The front door has been painted black with a cream surround. I will be laying real quarry tiles on the porch floor.

 The back door is also painted black and the windows are in cream.

 I've used 'hung' tiles on the area between the upper and lower bay windows. 

For the roof I'm using red tiles from a pressed fibreglass sheet. I've done the gable roof so far with this and painted the gable end in white with black Tudor beams.
