Well the doors you are looking at in this image are sliding french doors from Marvin and they are aluminum clad in an evergreen finish. The front entry door, not shown in this image is a natural fir door.

This is a combination of board and batten pine above a rail and cedar shakes below. Did you notice the upside down stone capital in the foreground serving as a patio side table? I just love that touch.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Erin Lang Norris added this to Dreaming Of: A House in the Woods
A house in the woods and a lakefront, too? This may very well take that dream list of yours to the next level. I often wonder where homeowners like this go on vacation. Do they prefer to stay in the woods or do they venture off to enjoy a faster pace?
Pangaea Interior Design, Portland, OR added this to 25 Dream Homes to Satisfy Your Soul
This photo is the one that inspired this article. This setting, by Lake Fairlee, Vermont, is so tranquil and the style of the home fits in perfectly in the wooded surroundings. I would spend my days lounging on the patio, waiting for deer to wander into the yard in the evening.
