Craftsman Chic

I will have lived in Atlanta
10 years this Christmas eve.
I first lived in an area called
Grant Park.
The homes: gorgeous.
My apartment: charming.

Atlanta has many 
craftsman style bungalows.
And the details of these homes
are what make them desirable.
(it is a misnomer that our heat and humidity
is what really draws people here)

Every weekend we go to
Grant Park (proper)
and I stare
longingly
at these homes
while we walk the dogs.
(the dogs actually walk us)

For this set, I wanted to capture
some of what I love about this area.
Starting with the basics . . .
Windows and Doors.

This set contains 4 single windows
All windows have 2 CAS presets
 
 2 double space windows
1 2x1 door (centered)
Centered so the sill of the windows would not hit the trim.
2 2x1 doors with side lights.
CAS preset 1&2 match windows, preset 2 is a mask variant for options.
I personally prefer this file, but while it's accurate, it's not as common.
2 1x1  interior door with two variations
CAS options are based on 'interior' settings for all the windows and doors.
Note - the sill of the windows will intersect the trim of this style door
my suggestion would be to not put a window next to the door
These are designed to line up next to each other
for rows of windows and doors.

Want to know something else?
Pocci of Garden Breeze
(whom I met [finally, officially] on Tumblr)
made curtains to go with these windows!
How absolutely awesome is that?
Please visit her page
HERE
to get the matching curtains.
How awesome are these curtains?! Thank you Pocci!
This is part one
of this build set.

While pulling together a list
of what would complete this set
It was clear that it might take me 
a while to pull everything together.
2017 anyone?
So, while you enjoy part one,
I will be busy working on part two.

Some shots of the set in action:
All shots in my Moonlight Falls house . . . look at that action!
