House – Wikipedia

Building that functions as a dwelling

Various examples of houses throughout the world, in different styles

A house is a building that functions as a home. They can range from simple dwellings such as rudimentary huts of nomadic tribes and the improvised shacks in shantytowns to complex, fixed structures of wood, masonry, concrete or other materials containing plumbing, ventilation, and electrical systems.[1][2] Houses use a range of different roofing systems to keep precipitation such as rain from getting into the dwelling space. Houses may have doors or locks to secure the dwelling space and protect its inhabitants and contents from burglars or other trespassers. Most conventional modern houses in Western cultures will contain one or more bedrooms and bathrooms, a kitchen or cooking area, and a

The Old House Web

You’d be hard pressed to find a housing style more typically American than the foursquare. Economical to build and uniquely suited to make use of every square inch of the house itself and tiny city lots, this style can be found in city neighborhoods across the country.

The American Foursquare is known by a variety of terms including box house, a cube, a double cube or a square type American house. It first appeared on the housing scene around 1890 and remained popular well into the 1930s.

COCOCOZY Design House: Exterior Paint Picking With Benjamin Moore

Choices, choices, choices!

Anyhooo… first step of the paint process is picking the exterior paint. I bring up Steve because he has always been the person I look to for home remodels and because his own home is the inspiration for the colors of the design house.

Stunning Benjamin Moore colors!

The vision: slightly off white with black trim and maybe just maybe a colorful door in a blue and or green shade. I was in Claremont, the town where I spent my preteen and teen years, and I ran across a darker colored Spanish style/Mediterranean inspired home and I nixed that as option.

This is the color I decided to steer away from…saw this house while I was on a walk in my hometown…while the style of the house is on point with the COCOCOZY Design House, the color is too dark and too yellow.

But one of these western-style designs could be for you. Check them out.

 

 

One look at this modern home is enough to have jaws drop. There is not a single curve on it. Everything from its roof to windows and edges are sharp like that of a square. This makes the house look all the more modern and a design from the west. It has 2 storeys and the flat roof gives it a more elongated look.
