Anatomy of a House

Thinking about making a change to the exterior of your home? When submitting a change to your exterior please be clear as to which part of the home you are referring to. Especially when painting a new color; the more detail you can provide the better. All changes to the exterior paint color of your home must go through the Design Review Application process. Below is a picture of the anatomy of a house to use a reference when describing your project:

Wheatlands Homes need to match the covenant color palette and are broken down by 4 color categories: Main Body Color, Secondary Body Color, Trim Color, and Accent Color.

Main Body Color – includes vertical siding and horizontal siding

Secondary Body Color – not all houses in our neighborhood have a secondary color however some have 2 colors of siding which is what the secondary body color would be describing

Trim Color – include soffit, fascia boards, garage and window trim

Accent Color – includes shutters, windows hoods & exterior doors

To accompany the Design Review Application, it is required that homeowners take a picture of the outside of their home and label it with what the new colors will be for each area. This will help make for a smooth application review!
