Efficient strategies for creating varied and appealing streetscapes

By Larry W. Garnett |Professional Builder

Today’s homebuyers are looking for great design and great value. From starter homes to luxurious move-ups, they’re intent on finding something that’s unique and personal. Not long ago, the term cookie-cutter was only used by builders and design professionals as they discussed how to vary streetscapes filled with repetitive plans. But now buyers are quite familiar with the term and most are quick to describe a neighborhood as cookie-cutter if they sense too much repetition.

From a construction perspective, of course, repetition becomes one of the essential elements of cost-effective home building. This is where thoughtful and creative design becomes essential. As you’ll see in the following examples from our design team, it’s possible to produce multiple elevations for the same floor plan. With just the right amount of material and proportion variations, the faÇades could be placed side by side, with no hint of cookie cutter.
