Stunning home -no words do it justice. Broad Price/sq ft question? - I'm also building a custom home in Chester Co. PA and have been at it for several years with zoning, subdividing, architectural design, etc. We are slated to break ground in August. I would love to know, assuming the size of this house is 8000 sq. ft. given all three levels, what the approximate price per square foot is to achieve a home with this level of planning, design and execution.

Does the gas firebox against the stone wall in the living room actually have a chimney? Does it need one? I am remodeling and love the fireplace but our house does not have a chimney and a fireplace would need to be on an interior wall.

Bragg Hill Stucco and Siding Question - Your home is lovely. Would you mind sharing the stucco color, and if you treated the board and batt siding with anything? Your feedback is much appreciated and needed :)

No, no, no. TO clarify, I don't mean just like a "floor plan". I mean your architectural renderings and build plans. So I can give them to our contractor and build it for free. ; )

Color - I love the red paint color you used on the house. Red is so hard sometimes to find the right shade . You certainly hit a home run with this one. Can you please share the paint brand and color name ? Thanks so much!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

3. Delve into the vernacular. Yes, I love modern and contemporary design, but more than that I love good design. While I'm not a fan of new design that mimics old styles, I can find beauty in traditional design, especially the vernacular.
A vernacular design has a language that can be, like any language, broken into parts and reassembled to create new meanings. When architects design in a vernacular style, they break that local design language into its components and reassemble them to write a new design story. So while a roof shape, siding material, color and stone base remind us of the local barns, we may be presented with something altogether new.
Tell us: This list is only the tip of the iceberg — farmhouses, mountain homes, adobe houses and countless others each offer particular charms. Which is your favorite house style — and why?More: Where Did Your House Get Its Look?
The building includes materials made of recycled content; it also has a superinsulated and tight envelope, cisterns, solar panels, geothermal heating and cooling systems, passive ventilation and reclaimed barn wood. “The house isn’t quite net zero,” Moger says, “but it’s darn close.”

This is the tin overhang. Love this house. They have stucco, reverse cyprus On this one. I think those two and the dark brown on the Dutch barn would be a great color combo. This cyprus does turn grey right?

See the tiny little metal overhang over window. This also has a dormer in metal but it's in the middle of the house like a skylight do you see more of the metal I think. Not exactly what I would do, but a good example of mixtures of metal, wood, concrete, etc.
