Beautiful house. Are the beams in the gables 4x4 or 2x6?
Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo
The extra width on the face looks nice. I am considering sandwiching the vertical boards bewtween 2- 2x6's on the bottom with black lags to give more girth and dimension. Do you think that would look nice?

I do. That would be nice. Just remember that anytime you have a space (like between the (2) 2x6s, you're likely to get birds' nests. So you may want to fill in the void with solid blocking. These types of details often have birds anyway, so it might not be a big deal.

Not unless you'd like to use me as the designer / architect for the new home - or at the very least, list me as the architect and include my information on the photo.

The siding is Certaintaeed, and I'm fairly sure the color is "Wicker". Both the horizontal and shake siding patterns are the same color.

The porch railings were actually re-used metal bars/rails the home owner found, I believe at the University of Iowa.

can you tell me the type and color of this siding, absolutely beautiful home!

Just curious if the color of the CertainTeed siding has been confirmed as Savannah Wicker...we are very interested in using that color. Looks like the Blue Ridge Door is mahogany. Could you clarify/confirm both? Thanks so much!!

Were you able yo confirm the color of this siding? It looks more like Light Maple than Savannah Wicker. I love it too but I wish we knew the exact color of Certainteed siding.

The portion that projects out from the front door is 13'-9" deep x 24'-9" (from the garage wall to the corner). The projection from the side wall is 6'-7" and wraps back around the corner 14'-4".
