Kiawah Flyway Oceanfront traditional-exterior

Kiawah Flyway Oceanfront

This is the entry façade of an oceanfront house on Kiawah Island. It has a gracious front porch adorned with the quintessential porch furniture: rocking chairs. The porch ceiling is natural stained beaded board, the shutters are operable wood, the siding is cedar shingles stained on all 6 sides, the brick is old brick, and the roof is heavy Vermont slate.

How do you know when to hire an architect and when to try and find house plans to fit your needs.....

I think you should always use an architect! Every site and every owner's needs are different, and there is nothing better than a custom designed house for a perfect fit! It is well worth the upfront expense, you will save money in the long run!

I would love to know the color of the siding, the shutter color and the brick used for this house. This is a great combination! Can anyone help?

chsmom, did you decide on a brick color? We are considering evening blue or iron grey Hardieplank with Carolina Ceramics Monaco brick.
