In a planned neighborhood of 46 homes, the builder/developer requested two elevations for each of the five floor plans. With lot widths varying from 36 feet to 40 feet, the narrow footprints are definitely a challenge. The key element is the rear-entry garages, which create more opportunities for different front façade designs. Offering the option of brick or siding also makes a huge difference. However, when you analyze the major components of any home, you’ll find the roof is usually the dominant element. Varying the roof pitches provides for dramatic elevation changes.
