|Classic Tudor-styled Half Timbering|
I quite like the juxtaposition of white and brown, or white and black, one finds in this style. I am hoping when I build my cottage I will be able to include at least some of the half timbered style. Sometimes it can be used for the whole house, but usually there is a base floor of brick or stone and the half timbering is restricted to the second floor. I believe I will carry the brown and white colour scheme into the interior and go for a simple look; splashes of colour can be added with throws, artwork, plants, etc.
Please enjoy these few examples I found on the web. If anybody is experienced in building with this style, do let me know because I would like to learn more about it.
