windows on farmhouse - fully divided or 'cottage' style?

15 years ago

We are building a "farmhouse" style house. Kind of a colonial with porches.

Anyway, the current plan is 15 light doors - 2 sets of french doors and 4 single doors and single hung windows that have dividers on both upper and lower parts. I am having second thoughts about the dividers on the lower sash of the window. We are building on our acreage and enjoy the view. When considering the window by itself I seem to prefer the open/clean/undivided lower sash. I think they call these "cottage style" windows?

Anyway, would these look too cottage/bungalow on a farmhouse and would they look funny with the divided doors?

Any pictures?
