Be Inspired by These Covered Bridges When Planning Features for Your New Home

There may be nothing more classically American than covered bridges. These bridges dot the country and will instantly transport a traveler back to a simpler time in our country's history. Many covered bridges have been restored and are painstakingly cared for to preserve our heritage and the beauty of the structures.

You can become inspired by these covered bridges and use elements of their design when creating a beautiful home exterior. For example:

Traditional Landscape

  • The Baltimore Covered Bridge in Vermont features a lattice truss design that can be replicated on your home's exterior. The lattice design is perfect for a porch railing and will cast beautiful shadows throughout the day.
  • Many covered bridges feature a red and white color palette. This color palette may be perfect for your home's exterior and can help highlight interesting architectural details.
  • The Goodpasture Covered Bridge in Oregon features a series of louvered windows. You can create the same feel by installing simple louvered shutters on your home's exterior.
