Cool down your house in the summer

Diamond Interiors

With summer quickly approaching, minds will soon be turning to how to make the most of the rising temperatures. Holidays need planning, BBQ’s need to be unearthed, and someone need to pull the sun lounger out of the shed.

But just as soon as the warm temperatures arrive, the usual grumbles start. “It’s too hot”. “This house is too stuffy”. “Where is the fan?”. On and on this will go, because no matter what the weather, there are always downsides!

Most Popular Architectural Home Style Designs

Every house has an own style. EW-Webb Engineering Inc. has completed over 3000 projects in Southern California.

Colonial House Style : According to us, The Colonial home is one of the most popular styles of home in the United States. Colonial houses developed out of the US Colonial period in the 1700s. Colonial architecture flourished in two main US regions: New England and in the Southern US.

Colonial House Style

Cape Cod House Style : The modern day Cape Cod houses you see in nearly every part of North America are modeled after the rugged architecture of Colonial New England. The style is a simple one. You will rarely see a porch or decorative embellishments on a Cape Cod home. These houses were designed for easy construction and efficient heating.

Features of Traditional, Colonial-era Cape Cod Houses

  • Steeply pitched roof with side gables
  • Narrow roof overhang
  • 1 or 1½ stories
  • Constructed of wood and sided in wide clapboard or shingles
  • Exterior siding originally left unpainted
  • Large central chimney linked to a fireplace in each room
  • Rectangular shape
  • Front door placed at the center or, in some cases, at the side
  • Center-hall floor plan
  • Multi-paned, double-hung windows

Cape Cod Style

Contemporary Style : Contemporary architecture retains modernism’s devotion to connecting the indoors and outdoors, and to achieving a feeling of spaciousness. But it isn’t averse to showing signs of regional character or even whimsy. And today’s architects are especially concerned with energy efficiency and sustainable materials, which has led to some truly innovative design.

Contemporary homes really have little downside, especially in terms of creature comforts. But it’s wise to pay attention to energy consumption. Although today’s homes are built tightly and leak little energy to the outside, they can still be power gluttons.

Contemporary Style

Cottage House Style: Cottage style is synonymous with easy living. Often associated with decorating a beach house or vacation home, today’s cottage style fits easily right at home, too. Cottage architecture is filled with charming woodwork. Exposed beams, beaded board, and wood planks add no-frills character to walls, ceilings, and floors. Painted white, the wood details add interest while keeping rooms bright and inviting.
