The board-and-batten look, originally associated with farmhouses, is showing up on the exterior of homes of all stripes -- as you can see in some of Houseplans.com most popular new designs, like Plan 430-156, above. It’s also being used for decoration inside homes. Batten strips add texture to walls, notes Binkley. They also add “solar animation,” he says, by casting shadows on the wall. In the classic look, 1x2 batten strips run vertically over siding boards. “But I’ve seen them turned at an angle to create a diamond pattern,” says Binkley.
The first Houseplans.com tiny home has already been completed. It's Plan 48-641 (shown below as built in Detroit, and in another version at the top of this post) a 300-square-foot Tudor-style home that features a fireplace, a large front window and a spacious back deck for outdoor living space, and was finished in November 2016. Originally designed as a guest house, it's basically one space for living/sleeping/cooking, with a separate bathroom at the back.
