stained or natural finish? Guess at grade of cedar? Thanks!
paver or natural stone I should go with as I don't want it to look busy. Our windows/door and metal trim are painted in Farrow and Ball's Tanner's Brown. Any suggestions? Thanks.
Actually the wood is ipe. It is sealed but not stained.
The windows are a commericial grade bronze anodized aluminum storefront window system. The wood soffit is made of Ipe wood, sealed but not stained.
Soffit, wood soffit, Ipe wood soffit
colour contrast and with dark wood under balcony
Dark wood framing on windows/door walls
ceiling wood, eggshell brick, dark green grass trim
and the wood underneath the overhangs is ipe.
The floors are original; the plaster is original; the brick front is original. By using materials that last, such as brick, we reduce the number of times a home needs to be renovated. And that means less waste and less energy used making new materials (and less work for contractors like me). Of course,
