Gutters - Try as I might, I don't see any gutters on this beautiful house. Are there any gutters? If so, how are they integrated.

The gutters are actually recessed! The aluminum you see running along the roofline (along the long edge of the house) is actually a gutter that is flush with the facade. The aluminum verticals along the short side of the house are the leaders connecting to the gutters. The aluminum you see connecting the two leaders above is actually the gutter catching the runoff from the porch.

What would it cost to build this house, just a round figure?

Love the color! Can you tell what brand the stain is and what color?

The stain was a black Benjamin Moore, but when it was mixed, we had the guy leave out the blue that was meant to go into it. The best thing to do is tons of samples (on separate pieces of siding - not on the house itself) to see how it will look in place. See attached photos.

Windows - Did you use clear anodized aluminum windows on this project? Can you tell me the manufacturer? How was the interior of the windows finished? Are the doorwalls from the same window maker?

Actual Size Projects
The windows and doors are clear anodized aluminum clad over douglas fir (which was clear-finished on the inside). The manufacturer was Loewen.

Garage Door - Can you tell me what material is used on the garage door? Was it custom made or can you tell me the manufacturer? Your work is lovely.

The garage door is western red cedar. I actually don't remember if this was custom or not. I don't think it was.

Thanks! The siding is a ship-lapped knotty western red cedar, stained black.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

When your driveway is half a mile long and none of your neighbors are within plain sight, the idea of a front or back door can safely go out the window. "When guests pull up the driveway, they usually use the door at the top of the stairs as the main entrance," says Gotlieb."The barn house fits in with its surroundings more than most of the other homes in the area, which are mostly cookie cutter houses," says Gotlieb.
