.The door is 3'-0" wide, the sidelights are 1'-9" wide.
The space between the door and the sidelights, called a "vertical mull" is 3 1/2".
Combining the products the total width is 7'-1" wide by 7'-6" high, not including the outer jamb thickness.

I would review the final order with the builder and carpenter, to assure that the proper rough opening is available for the door and sidelight frame.

The door was made by SIMPSON. There web site is http://www.simpsondoor.com where you can find this mahogany door and sidelights. The exterior door hardware was purchased through ROCKYMOUNT http://www.rockymountainhardware.com I hope this information helps you review the various products and availability.

I am not able to send the information you have requested. The house plans, exterior elevations and related construction drawings are not available for publication. The design of the plans have satisfied the owner's desires for this home built in 2007. Due to various State regulations regarding construction methods, along with maintaining client confidentiality, the construction drawings for this project are not for sale. I thank you for your interest, and hope some of the design elements will be considered within your project. The construction drawings are in possession of the owner.

The overall width from the left of the garage to the right side master suite
is 90'-0" wide.
The overall depth of the house from the front of the garage to rear extended great room is 99'-0" deep.
The first level square footage is 3,543 square feet
not including the 611 square foot garage.
The second level square footage is 1,986 square feet including
the floor space of the dormers and the floor space above the garage.
The total living space 5,529 square feet.
My best recommendations is to print the photographs from this house along with
any interior photographs for newton one, along with other photos you may find on houzz.

Once you have your photos, interview a designer / builder/ or a pro from this
houzz site which is close to the the location you desire to construct your residence. You should be able to find local professionals which will evaluate the photographs.

Once you have the interview with one, or more, designers or builders you will be able to start the process of the design and construction your area. Since each Town, State, or Country has their own building requirements, it is important to select a local person.

Seek someone who is qualified, open to your request, and able to translate your thoughts onto paper. There are many aspects, too many to write, which are required to be able to proceed with the design and building process.

In addition to the PROJECTS photographs, there are a number of interior photographs, which are found reviewing PHOTOS, such as foyer, living room, powder room, etc. which are related to this project.

The following is from a previous request for additional information
newton residence one :

The first floor offers a two story foyer. The formal dining room, an oversized kitchen, and the breakfast area are all located to the left of the front entry door. A sizable great room, 21 feet wide by 28 feet deep is the main family area which is positioned on the rear of the house and centered on the foyer space.

The master bedroom suite, [ bedroom, bedroom closets, and master bath ] are located on the first level. In this photograph the elements of the master bedroom suite are positioned on right side of the foyer utilizing a majority of the first floor.

There are four upstairs bedrooms, including the den located above the garage. The turret is one of the bedrooms being utilized as a home office.

I would like to thank you for your complements, and hope that you are able to evaluate your directions with the proper professionals to provide the services for your new home.

Kinnan - What material did they use for the monogram in the front steps and where did they find it? Thanks so much!
Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo
david phillips
The front 2" rock faced bluestone treads with New England field stone risers were installed from templates produced by the masonry subcontractor. The monogram inset within the lower landing was made from absolute black granite. The large 2" bluestone slab which contain the monogram was manufactured by the local masonry along with the local countertop manufacturer.

The project was completed in 2007, which I no longer have the records of contacts. I do not recall the "lighter color" granite highlighting the monogram along with the diamond inserts. However, I believe the stone was "engraved" with a water-jet at the countertop manufacture. This countertop supplier had the equipment to cut into the bluestone and install the two different types of granite.

My recommendations would be to print the photograph and discuss with your builder, masonry subcontractor, and the countertop supplier, to determine their alternatives and direction of cost as related to your project.

The project was completed late in 2007, which my records no longer exist for the product selections. My best suggestion is to select and print the best photo, then bring it to a local / retailer, who should be able to help you find a similar color.
The wood entry door, sidelights and related frame is made of mahogany.

the roof is a red shingle roof, untreated with any stain or preservative. the shingles are installed 5" "to the weather" allow for a goof overlap of the a8" shingle. the shingles have been installed with an ice/water membrane at all the eaves and valleys, along with interwoven #15 pound felt paper along each course. copper open valleys complete the roof.
