When we were deciding what colors to use on the exterior of the house, the old white corbels played into our decision. They are a key part of what makes the house craftsman style and we wanted to accentuate their presence. For decades, they’ve been camouflaged by an exterior color scheme of white-on-white. After spending more than a century exposed to the elements, the old white wooden corbels really started to show their age.
The corbels sat snug in the eaves of the house. From a distance, they look rather small.
Though up close, these architectural supports are actually quite large.
