The North West facade is the street view of the Nook House. The front facade of the building has clapboard siding with punched windows, a raised porch, and overhung ro which emulates the traditional shot gun houses in the rest of the neighborhood. In the distance a person on the street is able to see the large glass window that faces the courtyard and leads up to the roof. The roofs slope up in direction to the back of the building in order to maintain the feeling of a low building with a front roof line corresponding the the roof lines of the neighboring houses.
