Four Tips for Choosing your Exterior Home Elevation

June 25, 2021

Your home’s front elevation contributes to its overall architectural design. The right home elevation creates a visually appeasing aesthetic that can also enhance the curb appeal. One of the benefits of building a custom home is that you can design it to meet the needs of your lifestyle. Use these four tips below for choosing the elevation of your home’s exterior.

  1. Functionality is key – Where should you place your front entrance? Where should the windows go? How many steps should you have? These are all questions that should be answered honestly. Too many steps can cause issues for older homeowner’s or those with mobility issues. If you have two or three vehicles, then a get a two-car or three-car garage is better than a single car garage. Select an elevation that is functional and will work for your family’s lifestyle.
  2. Building materials appeal – When you look at your home you should love it. That means the materials that go into building your home as well. From brick and stucco to stone and vinyl, there are an array of options for your home’s exterior. We suggest you visit with your homes in Smiths Station AL homebuilder to see the materials in person prior to deciding. This will allow you to get an up close and personal view of the materials to see what they really look like.
  3. Landscape design – The home’s elevation is more than building materials and window and door placement. What do you want to see when you pull up to your home and look out of the window’s? This should work in conjunction with the feel of the architectural design.
  4. Elevation price points – Each elevation is priced differently. Do you want an elevation with columns or pillars? Or do you prefer a craftsman home that features pillars with an overhang? Our Spruce floor plan is available in three different elevations – the traditional, craftsman, and Euro. We are also actively selling in the Southern Oaks community. This neighborhood features eight different floor plans that are available in either two or three distinct elevations. The Traditional floor plan is the base price for each of our homes.
