Little project coming up with pic.

Thought maybe some of you guys would have thoughts on lighting this house.
Yellow indicates typical layout I would do.

I prefer a wide beam mr16 (either a well or spot fixture)
Also use par36 wells or accent spreaders.

Will be multi tap transformer / 10 guage wire etc.

looks pretty good to me, although I would like to see more light in the front entry portion of the house. Maybe use 2- mr16 35/10 degree with two linear spreads to follow the columns up? Lets see what the more experienced have to say.

Looks like a fun project. Do you already have the job or do have to give a proposal?

Thats awesome! B&B trees, potted, bare root? Curious as we do landscaping, hardscaping and tree moving. Take some pics as you progress if you could.
Would be nice to see it transform.
Thanks!

How about spotting the sharp edges of the turns in the front of the house with mr-16s 20 watt 7 degree and flodding the flat prtions with par 36 #7558s?

To stay away from the model home look, I would limit the wattage of the lamps on this home to 20 watts. I think BAB lamps (20 watts-36 degrees) would be good at the locations that you have marked but I think I would add one fixture on each column at the entry. Since they are white, I would use an FTC (20 watt-17 degree). This narrower beam will be brighter, leading people to the entry on the home.

Aight smoke this one over.. Core drill a hole out under the porch and set 4 fisxtures in there. If core drilling is not a option then you can usethe hadco well lights and cut the fixture in half to makeitas small as the little black boot that hold the bulb. Then all you have to do is drill a hole through the concrete to run the wire. My .02
