You’d never know that I once took ‘History of Architecture’ to fulfill a world history credit in college based on how I’ve been talking about the exterior of our house recently. 🙄 I have very conveniently been making up names for the “little things that stick out the front of the peaks” since I told Josh that I wanted “little things that stick out the front of the peaks.” But most recently I’ve settled on calling them “cornices.” As he knows what I’m talking about, he doesn’t generally correct me. But for the architectural record, this is a cornice…
And that is not what we’re putting on our house! This is a corbel…
And that is what we’re putting on our house. We even spent a lot of time talking about whether they’d be natural wood or it we’d paint them white. So you’d think in all that conversation I would have locked in on what they’re called. I think I’ve got it now that the first ones showed up on the front of the house this week.
Corbel…like Korbel Brut! Not cornice like the game hen
Well, cheers anyway!
