I've been thinking about writing this post for several weeks, while collecting photos. These small windows can truly bring out the character of a house.
The above home is one of my favorites. Great care was taken by the addition of the fret-work above the fan style window. Doesn't the window style remind you of half of a flower?
Creativity and skill were involved in cutting the glass shapes to make the little attic treasure.
A very skillful carpenter brought to life the framework of the very simple rectangular windows. It reminds me of a gingerbread house.

A simple oval is surrounded by fish-scale shingles.
The weather vane, perched directly above a beautiful fan shaped window, gives a whimsical look to the roof line.
Simple...yet, it shows interest in the dividing of the window panes.
No details were forgotten when designing this house....
The same house, looking at it from the front side.
I wonder how difficult it was to nail the fish-scale shingles to the roof of the turret. It is truly a window, in the attic, fit for a story book princess.....
What a wonderful post. So many gorgeous windows and they all look perfect in their right. I have windows on the brain as we spent yesterday deciding on ones for a soon-to-be-built home. DebReplyDelete
It just proves how important the choice of windows are for a home.Delete
Oh, the princess house is gorgeous!ReplyDelete
It was a very cloudy day when I took this one. I would like to go back on a sunny day and photograph it again.Delete
What a wonderful collection of beautiful windows! I guess you had a lot of fun spotting and recording these little beauties - and I have certainly enjoyed looking at them.ReplyDelete
I have always noticed the attic windows....way before I thought about a post. Maybe I will do another one, as I collect more photos.Delete
You live in a gorgeous part of the world! What fabulous pictures. JxReplyDelete
Thank you Jan....I, also think you live in a beautiful place. I do so enjoy your blog.Delete
This is just a beautiful collection of photos showing us 'what's under the eaves'! It would be hard to choose a favorite, but I'm leaning toward the first one because of the wonderful fretwork.ReplyDelete
It's amazing to me, that with all there is to think about when building a house, that they didn't forget the tiny window in the attic.Delete
How interesting. I especially love the turret! It's fun to notice the details!ReplyDelete
And, it shows how much attention each owner paid to the details of the house.Delete
