There is a delicate power washing applied to the existing brick on the house. Thank you for your question!

Progressive Solutions / Renaissance Bronze Windows
ilanagoldberg,
I don't know the exact measurments of these doors. I would guess that each door panel is about 2'x8', so each of the three openings would be 4' wide.
You may be interested in our Renaissance Solid Bronze Windows & Doors.
Our solid bronze windows offer affordable luxury with narrow sight lines, high strength, and low maintenance. All of our windows come fully glazed with triple seal glass & mounting flange options for installation.

Hi:

I bought a house on the canals. Lot size 30'x95' (2850 sq. ft).
Coastal Commission comes into play as right on canal and the Venice Canals are a Historic Preservation Area. So, no build inside of 10' of property line on canal facing side. 22' height restriction at that 10' mark followed by an additional feet height every two feet of setback from the original 10' up to a maximum of 30' height with 42" for roof ceilings, railings and max 35' for chimney stacks. 15x30' = 450 sq. ft. has to be left completely open with NO development at some portion of the property preferably front canal facing end. 2 car garage and a third car inside property line on alleyway has to be allowed for. I this max build limit is 3,750 sq. ft on FAR allowance.
Would this plan work? I think it should, but would love to chat!
