The front gate is the original from when the home was initially built (1950's). Sorry I could not be of help here.

Wow, thanks RR for that - would the frosted glass be stronger than the Plexi-glass? I had a look through your photos/projects and love what you do, pity Im in Australia! :)

What type of shingle is on the exterior? Is it red cedar? White cedar stained? Something else? It blends beautifully with the metal features.

AIP Resolution No. 1: I will make my home visitable.Stairs create a grand entrance for your home, but aren't so grand for visitors or residents using wheelchairs or walkers. Consider a zero-barrier entry to your home and at least one accessible ground floor bathroom. Not only will this make your home more visitable, it will also assist you should an older relative with mobility issues move in, or if you sustain a sports injury that precludes stair climbing during your recuperation. On a related note, zero-threshold showers are also recommended for aging in place.
Tiffany Carboni added this to 3 Essential Elements of an Artful Garden Path
2. Keep the path in character with its surroundings. Path materials that don’t make sense will feel jarring and confusing. Choose either materials that fit an existing theme of your home's exterior or garden, or natural features that will blend harmoniously with what’s already in the vicinity. More on path materials in a bit.
