Beginning August 16 and running through September 29, Fine Homebuilding readers can submit photos of their favorite exterior trim details for a chance to win the new Senco Fusion cordless nailer.
We’re in search of those crowns, casings, and columns that separate the instant classics from the cookie-cutter homes. It may be a carefully reproduced railing on a historic home, or it could be the subtle proportions on those new widow casings that make the front of the house pop.
