North Elevation

This is the north side of the house, which may appear a bit odd in the roofline because of the flattened perspective. Note how the shingled gable (which architects term a "tympanum") is picked out in a color a few shades lighter than the body color,  which was the common practice in the High Victorian era. It is not accurately drawn here; the square shingles are shown in unbroken rows suggesting clapboards, and the louvers are missing from the vent between the windows. Below is a picture of the gable for reference. Note the nice balustrade fill the architect designed in the rear entrance, suggesting the fill pattern used in the front veranda while complying with the current code (there is no fill in the front stair rail because it is an added "adaptive use" element, and as such must be rendered as simply as possible). Note also the lack of the faux-masonry foundation blocks in the addition, one of the few changes required by the Commission to increase the differentiation between old and new. One can see that this was a good call in aesthetic terms as well.
