extwalls

The Meux Home retains the use of colonial shutters on all of the exterior windows but departs from the traditional concept by having adjustable shutters on the interior side of all first floor windows and adjustable shutters on the exterior face of all windows on the second floor and attic.

Contrast in texture is given to the exterior of the Meux residence by the use of staggered shingles at the gable ends, patterned shingles at the second floor level and beveled shiplap siding at the first floor level finished off at the bottom with a special wood detailed water table. Each type of texture is separated from the other by a horizontal wood divider string board.

Transition in direction of wall shingles at wall ends are made by corner boards capped at top with elaborate corbels.
