4.  Fencing 

Yard fences can make your home stand out, but you want to choose the right one. It can change the look of your home completely and most certainly make your home stand out from the rest. You obviously want to tie in the design of your fence with the look of your overall exterior, but the design, discrete or sharply contrasting, can ad a strong statement to the look of your home. Make sure you consider the height, material, color, and function before making a pick!

5.  Location 

When you’re in the midst of planning and building a new home, where you choose to put it can make a big difference in how it looks and it’s value. You should always ask yourself, what location, home site orientation and design features will optimize the home’s value?

A home’s surrounding community can contribute significantly to the character of a residence and its respective design. But the position of the home on the property can allow prevailing breezes, sunrise and sunset views, plus proximity to trees and other wildlife.
