Enhance your loft - If you’re converting a loft space and had written off the idea of making good use of sloping eaves for anything other than, potentially, storage, perhaps this idea will spark your imagination.
In this cheery girl's bedroom, a bed and bookshelf were built in under the eaves to take full advantage of the room's limited space. Patterned wallpaper adds another layer of visual interest and texture to the space.
The house's beautiful water features echo the creeks and ponds in the forests nearby. This runnel lies directly beneath the eaves of the house. As the water travels north along the façade it bisects a stone wall and falls into a metal basin.
The exterior of this Greek Revival home has a classic pedimented gable and four elegant columns. Architectural detailing can be found in the fascia and eves and a crawl space helps this home stand tall.
This classically styled French Provençal home is situated on the high side of a La Jolla, Calif., lot with views of the Pacific Ocean from nearly every room. The home’s exterior is a composition of smooth Santa Barbara stucco, light tan-to-gold-colored rustic and carved stones, stained wood eaves, elegant Génoise roof eaves and rustic clay-tiled roof.
Craftsman architecture is notable for its practical design characteristics. The extended eaves and covered entry porch help reduce heat gain during the summer months when air conditioning requirements are highest.
Eaves frame this home's view of the smartly landscaped backyard. Raised planters house trees and small plants that complement the landscaping, while the planters' rusted-metal look adds extra personality to the yard.
