House elevation, Now I'm unsure about the style

15 years ago

This is the plan we bought over a year ago: (Probably will have two garages doors on the front of the house, instead of a side entry garage)

We fell in love with the perfect floor plan for our lot. It is private, can't see any neighbors houses from here. Trees around and a pond on the side. We can't start building until sometime next year, so lots of time looking and trying to learn. This house plan is designed to have brick siding on all 4 sides, but we aren't sure if that is in the budget (we'll get bids).

I don't know how to put brick or stone on just the front of the house without it looking funny. There isn't a good break off point on the sides and that bugs me.

My favorite style looks 7 Dwarfs Cottage, so I look at European cottage styles.

But I have seen many good points made, and MightAnvil has really opened my eyes to what style can really be.

I don't want to make a mistake, and I'm not sure what style we really like.

For example, I think this next house is very appealing:

Here is how others have finished our same house plan:

Can you help? I don't know why this is making me so insecure, but this is our forever home, and I don't want to regret it because I didn't do more homework!!
