There was a lot of speculation on the size. The pieces seemed very large while laying on the ground.. Many people thought they were going to be overwhelmingly to large for the house. I assured them that once they were up they would see that it would be perfect. I have been vindicated. I cannot take credit for the design. It was taken from an old Gothic home about 90 miles south. The home had been our inspiration through out the exterior design of this home. It was hard to picture any other style of trim. Lets just call it a nod to our inspiration house.
