Hello, thank you for your question. We designed this home for a homeowner who was his own general contractor. He selected his own colors and materials.

Hi, yes, the cupolas are real and allow light to filter into both the home and the garage. They also look stunning at night when lit. Thank you for your question!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

1. Inspect the roof, gutters and drainpipes. Depending on your climate, you may want to hold off until later in the fall (when most leaves have dropped) before cleaning the gutters, but doing a visual inspection now is a good idea. If any branches and leaves fell during summer storms, remove them so they don't cause blockages during autumn rains. Inspecting your roof now will leave ample time to have repairs or a replacement made before winter.
Play in the leaves. Consider leaves nature's gift to the garden. All you need to do is get them to the right place. Those on your lawn can be shredded with the lawnmower, then either added to your compost bin or put straight back onto the garden as a mulch. Do not cover crowns of perennials, however, as they could rot.
Laura Gaskill added this to 9 Ways to Boost Winter Curb Appeal
9. Driveway lighting. If your home is set back from the street, seeing it in the evening may be a challenge without a little extra help. Add a few driveway lights — on the ground level if you get no snow or up higher on posts if you do — to remedy the problem. Welcoming lights leading the way to your door will beckon warmly from the road, showing visitors the way.Tell us: How do you spice up your home’s curb appeal in winter?
