They are custom fabricated solid wood railings. Aesthetically that is best.

Seeing the outside of a house without seeing the floor plan is useless - Seeing only the exterior is like looking at a pretty cake and not having any recipe for the cake. How do you have any idea about whether you might really like the cake. Maybe it's just a painting.

You're absolutely right. Could be a smoke screen or a movie set for all you know! (: I am sorry I can't share the floor plans with you though. They wouldn't be helpful anyway, because it was a remodel. All the best, Leigha

Thanks! Believe it or not, it's a charcoal gray color. The ambient exterior lighting makes it appear lighter due to reflection. http://www.gaf.com/Residential_Roofing/Shingles/Timberline_HD_Formerly_Timberline_Prestique_30/Timberline_HD_Charcoal.jpg

Gutters - Hello, would you know what type of gutter was used on the residence? I have a similar entry on my home which is in the process of being built, and the builder has expressed concern. Do you receive a lot of rainfall, and have you received any feedback that a more slanted gutter causes rain to wick off versus funnel from the gutter to the piping? Thanks very much for any insight!

These are seamless aluminum gutters, in an ogee style. Pretty inexpensive and standard- not what I had designed originally. (I had designed painted galvanized sheet metal fascia style gutters. The gutters would have filled in the gap to the top of the rafter tails.) These gutters were a lot less expensive. The gutters should be installed as close to horizontal as possible along the edge of the roof line, and pitched correctly to the sides for the best drainage, as your builder or roofer seem to be suggesting. They can be shimmed up with a little triangular piece of wood on the bottom of the gutter, at the rafter tails, to get the tops as close to horizontal as possible. It's definitely important to have properly functioning gutters, so probably best to defer to the builders if the architect is unsure or unable to make a recommendation. Hope that helps. Leigha

It's a faded version of Benjamin Moore's color 'Stone 2112-40' I made a sample board for the client with a thin layer of this paint color on cedar shingles. Through the course of the construction, the board sat outside and the color faded in the sun. The client liked the faded color, so she had the painters match the sample color in stain. Hope that helps!

I don't personally know of one, but I could ask around. This home is very custom in nature, so I think if you did use a modular builder, you'd still have to have a local craftsman detail out the finishes and once you do that, I'm not sure if you would cut costs. Nevertheless, I'll see if I can get a good recommendation for you. Best! Leigha

There is no photo of the rear facade. The exterior of the house is extremely close to the rear yard property line and almost impossible to photograph. Also, due to the particular nature of the remodel, the exterior design at the rear didn't really change much from the original.

We purchased the stone from Bay Area Bluestone. It was a bluestone called ‘Lilac’ and we ordered it in the Random Ashler Pattern. It was 1.5" thick and at the time it cost about $8.50 p.s.f. Here is the link from the website: http://www.bayareabluestone.com

The porch flooring was clear cedar 2x4 T&G decking. Proper installation on that is essential, otherwise the boards will warp.

The exterior shingle color is Benjamin Moore 'Stone 2112-40' and the exterior trim color is Benjamin Moore 'White Dove'. The top and bottom levels are all stained the same color. The foyer bench column to the right of the front porch is clad in gray stone (barely visible in this photo), so that portion appears darker than the rest of the shingles. Stain colors fade quickly, and appear lighter in natural light, which is why the color appears lighter in this photo. Best of luck! Leigha

Typical architectural fees for a project like this should be between 10-20% of the construction budget. The work should include a lot of architectural details, as well as work in all the major architectural phases such as schematic design, design development, construction documents, bidding and negotiation, and construction administration. Although, I don't feel comfortable disclosing the precise amount for the sake of my client's confidentiality, I can say that the fees for this project did end up being on the higher end of that spectrum. If you email me, we can discuss it further. My email is leigha@heydtdesigns.com Best of luck with your project! Leigha

It's a natural veneer stone product I found at Bay Area Bluestone. http://www.bayareabluestone.com The names of these products change frequently. At the time it was referred to as 'Castle Rock,' not to be confused with the manufactured products of this name. The color was referred to as 'Chocolate.' You can't see it in this photo but we also clad the column to the right of the front door in this stone to break up the shingle siding. Hope this helps! Leigha

Hello! The exterior pendant was selected by Benjamin Dhong Interiors. http://www.houzz.com/pro/bendhong/benjamin-dhong-interiors

I know Restoration Hardware carries similar ones.

Best of luck! Leigha

Thank you for the reply. Yes, I like the stained better too. I think I'll take the gamble on staining it this first application and see how it goes.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Heydt describes the new style of the home as having Craftsman shingle style and Spanish colonial influences outside, with contemporary elements inside. This home doesn't have much of a backyard, so the owners treat their front yard like a backyard. In addition to the front porch on the left, there is a patio off the kitchen on the right.
1. Classic cottage in California. This cottage exterior struck a chord for Houzzers, many of whom noted the stonework and columns in their ideabooks. Readers found the simple, low-maintenance landscape appealing, too. See more of this house
David Duncan Livingston added this to Take Great Home Photos the Easy Way — 5 Tips From a Pro
This is a good example of nice movement framing the home. The camera is parallel to the house, but the center point is more to the right. The photo feels balanced by the strong vertical of the center tree.
