The best I can remember is that it is Pella's standard tan option.

This home utilizes cut stone at the base and stucco above the windows. The columns and soffits are mostly wood. For a polished French Country I would suggest the stucco as an added material. If you are looking for finished look rather than rustic keep the detailing simple. Too much detailing will feel busy.

Thank you so much. I agree. Q: Any opposition to EFIS/Dryvit vs stucco?

Here is the info from a previous question if this was Norman brick?

Per the builders info : The bricks were Belden - Jewel blend - Sand face - Normans. They were from Beldens Plant # 8.

Hope this helps.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to Getting it Wright: Today's Prairie Style
In today's updated Prairie style, the entrances often soar out to greet visitors.
Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to 9 Top Siding Materials
Though more closely associated with traditional designs, brick can be used on houses ranging from contemporary to Prairie and just about every style in between.Cost: Brick’s durability and low maintenance come at a higher price. Expect to pay about $17 to $20.More about brick veneer siding
Steven Corley Randel, Architect added this to Roots of Style: Where Did Your House Get Its Look?
3. Prairie. Though authentic examples of this style are rare outside the Midwest, and although it was only briefly popular (1900 to 1920), it had a profound effect on vernacular suburban architecture for the rest of the 20th century. The long, low, horizontal lines and deep eaves along with hipped roofs can be found all across the United States in the more familiar ranch style. It is also uniquely an American creation and is considered a part of modern architecture and, more specifically, stems from the Arts and Crafts movement. As can be seen in this example, the detailing can be quite sophisticated and complex.
