Carmel-By-The-Sea: Windamere is a lovely cottage. The Shingle thatch is the technique of using cedar shingles to recreate the texture and look of a reed-thatched roof. This is just so charming. A little dream cottage.
This thatched rubble stone cottage was built in 1811 in a little place called Blaise Hamlet near Bristol, England.~Not only do I love the stone, but also the thatched roof and that curved bench, and oh the leaded windows too.
Charming 'storybook cottage' design in Colleyville, a Dallas/Fort Worth suburb. This was a custom design done by Samuel Hackwell of Storybook Homes.<<< I WILL be hiring storybook homes to build my dream home one day.
