Body color? - Hello - we're searching for the perfect shade of yellow for the exterior of our house and love the color combination you used here. I see you've identified the door/accent color, but would you also mind letting us know the body and trim colors used? Thanks very much in advance! Beautiful work!

Thanks for your interest! Unfortunately as an architecture firm, we do not normally keep a record of paint colors used. I believe this color was a custom shade mixed on site, however, Benjamin Moore "Fresh Air" looks similar.

Could you tell me who manufactures the front door? Thanks!
Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo
Crisp Architects
Thanks for your interest! Unfortunately I cannot give you the manufacturer because the door, although we painted it, was actually existing.

Perhaps you can add a cabinet on the wall above the tub, or add a shelf above the door. They give you the extra space for towels without taking up valuable floor space.

We used bluestone treads and local stone available in upstate New York for the risers. We used weathered wood architectural shingles for this house although we have used black shingles on projects. I would suggest you make samples and put them together for evaluation

That is a custom railing designed by office. A woodworker in your area should be able to create a version for you.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

“We started with the old pristine portion of the house and then worked out from there,” says Crisp. The new addition is set on pier footings so as not to disturb the roots of the existing oak trees on the property.Wherever possible, Crisp emphasized energy efficiency, utilizing geothermal heating, soy insulation and old wood and stone. “Using reclaimed materials not only gives you a wonderful patina, it’s very green, without having it in your face,” he says.

I like the idea of a front entry big enough for two rocking chairs, sort-of in place of a front porch. Interesting variation on a front entry with a door and two windows above. Definitely an interesting and varied roof line going on here too. Dislike the house, cannot stand the columns, but like some of the details
